Kai said “hang on. how is she gonna take trumps side when David Dobrik is literally here under DACA & also one of her CLOSEST FRIENDS. trisha paytas is cancelled.” Miranda Krueger tweeted “Trisha Paytas really had the audacity to say immigrants are “ stealing our jobs “ when her “job” is sitting on a floor, eating and crying all day” One fan asked “what’s the tea with trisha paytas?” and Trisha herself responded “she cancelled boo”
Trisha uploaded a lengthy apology video, explaining her ignorant motives behind the original video, saying “I was so driven for money, I would say anything …I know I lack substance, talent and intelligence..but I have heart.”
Trisha deleted the video after realizing years ago she didn’t want to create clickbait videos anymore, adding “Years later Shane was like you don’t have to do this- people like you for you.” But regardless, once on the internet, always on the internet. And for the record, Trisha clarifies her political views, saying: “I can say without hesitation that I don’t support Trump.”
She talks about her friends who she’s seen their families affected by recent policies, and says “I don’t support trump, they were satire, it doesn’t feel good”.
