Elma Pazar seemingly turns to her followers for help

Love Island's Elma Pazar faced backlash after seemingly turning to her followers for financial support.

It's important to note Elma's Twitter isn't verified, however, it appears to be her official account.

The former Islander turned to her Twitter followers for help amid the coronavirus pandemic.

She tweeted, 'If anyone wants to donate to my bank account to cheer me up, I’ll be happy to send you over my details.'

'No time wasters please. Many thanks kind regards xxx'

One Twitter user commented, 'Or you could look for a real job? "influencer on social media" / "love island contestant" are not careers'

Elma replied, 'I mean people do make careers out of them, and people earn well from them which would imply they are ‘real jobs’.'

'However I’m an eyelash technician, which is also a ‘real job’ and can’t work due to Covid restrictions. Xx'

Another user commented, 'Are seriously asking people to just give you money? Am I missing the joke?'

Elma replied, 'Are you seriously taking it serious?'

'Life’s short baby laugh a little xxx'

Elma's statement

Elma has since released a statement addressing, 'my tweet I made the other day.'

She claimed it was written in a, 'half-jokingly manor.'

The former reality star continued, 'The reality is this has hit me, the beauty industry and I’m sure many other sectors hard.'

'Just like many in the beauty industry, that are struggling to make ends meet due to the constant back and forward by the government.'

Elma wrote, 'It’s easy to make this about me, seeing as I was on a TV show for 5 minutes.'

'But truth be told, I had a job which I had to stop doing, just like everyone else. I have bills to pay, just like everyone else.'
