Skye Wheatley has unleashed an extraordinary tirade on her fellow social media influencer peers.

The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Australia winner, 30, did not hold back in  in a lengthy rant shared to her Instagram stories, expressing her deep frustration and disappointment after recently witnessing some bad behaviour in the industry. 

‘Let me explain why I’m embarrassed to be called an ”influencer”,’ Skye began.

‘Most of them are stuck up, entitled, rude, inconsiderate and only care about two things… money and fame.

‘I’ve seen sooo much of the “tall poppy syndrome lately”. It hurts me so much because I’m ALWAYS the first person to support others in the industry but over time when you never receive the ❤️ or support back you just lose faith in humanity.’

Skye added she was almost on the brink of calling out the ‘rude and selfish’ offenders. 

‘People in this industry are so rude n selfish it frustrates the hell out of me,’ she vented.

‘I want to call people out so badly but I won’t because I have a brand to uphold and I’m passionate about being a KIND & beautiful person.

Most of them are stuck up, entitled, rude, inconsiderate and only care about two things…money and fame,' she explained. 'I've seen sooo much of the 'tall poppy syndrome lately' it hurts me so much because I'm ALWAYS the first person to support others in the industry but over time when you never receive the ❤️ or support back you just lose faith in humanity'

Unfortunately, not many people in the industry give a flying f*** about that so I refuse to be one of one.

‘Rant over while keeping my morals. Lovely lovely. Don’t even get me started on the people that have USED me also that’s a story for a different day.’

It comes after Skye told her followers she was sick of getting asked by fans when her longtime partner, Lachlan, was planning to propose to her.
