This heartbreaking incident comes just a day after influencer Motara rose to fame for her inspiring grass to grace story.
Today youngsters are most affected by the social media influencer community who share their attractive way of life with the world. But what most fail to understand is not everything that glitters is gold. At some point or the other, these people reveal their true colors, and it is far from the kind and genuine persona they present online. This time it was a Nigerian Twitter influencer who got caught up in the mess after doing something that was heartless, to say the least. Motara, who amassed followers after sharing her grass to grace story, stunned her audience after sharing a petty video of herself teasing a child with an offer of something to drink.

In the since-deleted video, the influencer could be seen driving in traffic as a child approaches her. Motara then asks the little girl if she wanted to have a drink and the kid responds with an affirmative. Little did she know that the woman in the car had no intentions of giving her that drink. The tragic scene that followed shows Motara teasing the child by placing the mouth of the bottle near the girl's mouth while her car's window is still up. As she starts driving away, the little girl can be seen running behind the influencer's car hoping to get that drink, but the woman continued to tease her with the bottle.
Motara and the lady behind the camera are so stupid. When she lost everything she's boasting of now, people will say it's their ancestors problems. The rich man that looks down on Lazarus in the Bible then, suffers last. Never look down on the less privileged. https://t.co/wwQ3aVq8wa— Ѳℓσωσσκɛяɛ💡♥️ 50.11% 60.00% (@AdewunmyO) November 22, 2020
The scene ended in Motara bursting into laughter at the plight of the girl before gulping down the drink herself and driving off. Despite the pettiness of the situation, the social media personality decided to share the video on her WhatsApp, according to Naira Lovers.com, with the caption, "I’m shitty, I know, I gave her money las las sha." Although Motara revealed that she did give the kid money, people simply could not overlook the way she treated that poor child. Motara was quick to delete the video but others had already captured it and uploaded the clip on Twitter. Soon the influencer was flooded with criticism after the video sparked immense outrage on the internet.
I'm with you on this..— Victor (@veektorr_) November 22, 2020
I'm just letting her know that the lady that made the video is point blank stupid.
She has been called out and she has acknowledged her stupidity...
No one needs her apology coz she's not sorry... she'll do it again!
She just trying to protect her image.
User @smadatim13 shared: Lol... You called it a joke and justified it but couldn't see the fun and joke in Motara's video? If you fail to see that joke as being insultive then you have no moral right to condemn the lady. Know it and have peace. Another was of the view that Motara needs to apologize to the young child and not to her followers on Twitter. Motara's apology shouldn't be to Twitter NG but to that young lady who was hawking to make a living all by herself. The lady's self-esteem & mental health have been attacked. Motara needs to go out tomorrow, locate that lady & apologize deeply to her, expressed Tope Akinyode. One Twitter user also blasted the emotionless person who was recording this video. Motara and the person that recorded that video don’t have sense, you saw what she was doing and in your sensible mind was recording too, wrote @Hello Semiloore.
The bants ain't too much son, it's thoroughly and indeed justified ma nigga, what she did was terrible and believe me, I like the lady and enjoy her skits but she messed up BIG TIME.— Senior Lion🦁 (@StarboiJarizod) November 22, 2020
Surprisingly, there were some people who thought that the matter should have ended with Motara's apology. User Augustine Uwandu expressed: Why is there so much disrespect on this space. The lady did stuffs that was wrong, realized her mistake and apologized and instead of letting it go, some of you resort to making her feel terrible. Oh wrong nah. Not nice. User Bob Geoffrey wrote: Nothing concern me and the dragging... I saw a story that was inspiring to me and I loved and still love it. Anything else outside that is none of my business. A happy Sunday to you and I hope the lady felt it too. Apparently, Motara tried to defend herself saying her actions were meant to inspire the young girl, but people are not buying it.
That Motara video is so sad to watch— Unwanted Friend 😒🌚 (@holardamolar) November 22, 2020
I mean for someone who went through all what she stated yesterday? To even think she made mention of knowing how it felt to be rock bottom?
Would have inspired hundreds of people yesterday then she came up with this today? Nahh @motaraaa 🤦🏾
How you thought it wise to inspire someone with tale of doom is what I don't get.— Black Elite Bronco (@EbonyBronco) November 22, 2020
Does the story inspire you?
You are saying someone has been hawking and praying for over 20 years. Still hawking.
If you wanna sell a grass to grace story please do but don't call it inspiration
Now u should know that the whole story of grass to Grace was only for the grams. Fake life of influencer. Mocking a poor little girl begging on the street? @motaraaa must b a monster on human flesh— John D builder (@ehinlaromoses) November 23, 2020
Seriously, @motaraaa stooped to an all time low. First of all you went on a flimsy grass to grace rant, next you go mocking an helpless girl .... God wey bless you no say make you no get brain o. And you said you thought it's funny.... Welcome back to the grass, ode— Nashvyle 🕑 (@Nashvyle) November 22, 2020
