It seems the mother of someone who used to Loyal fans have had enough when thousands of them unfollowed her after her old tweets were discovered.

Elle terrifies followers with her vile messages, insulting various ethnic groups – including calling “foreigners” “skinheads” who “speak with grumble”.

The cynical words, written ten years ago, resurfaced during the Christmas holiday season and caused fans to wildly unfollow her.

In just a few days, the star – who relies on Instagram followers to secure paid posts – reduced from 780,000 to 720,000 followers.

Now, Elle’s following has dropped even further as she has only 686,000 followers left – for a total loss of close to 100,000.

Her YouTube channel has also continued to plummet since the tweet, with 26,000 fans unfollowing her and leaving her follower count at 577,000.

The star also terminated her Twitter account, where the tweets were originally shared, because she was abused for the comments.

In a tweet from 2011, the influencer wrote: “I hope this Pole drives my bus who almost kicked me because I didn’t have a passing problem.”

Another person of the same year read: “Why are foreigners following me? I don’t say your grumbling, you bastards.”

In a new YouTube clip released last week, she repeated how “disgusting” she was to see her “terrible tweet” and indicated how she would rest.

She said: “The tweets I made in 2009 were disgusting, and by far compared to who I am today, they’re racist, discriminatory, homophobic – I’m ugly tiger, I loathe myself.

“There isn’t a person on this planet who hates me more than I do right now. The pain I’ve caused so many people has eaten away at me.

“To know that I am someone you consider a great friend and this image of me is now defiled. I didn’t even realize I was [that person].

“I hope you can see this is not who I am today. I know those disgusting words and horrible tweets will always be associated with my name. Ever since I posted these lines. That tweet, I’ve gotten better at school over the past ten years.”

Since her apology video, YouTuber has been reduced by two of major brands she works with regarding her racist tweets.

Fashion retailer In The Style and Beauty Works were the first to confirm they will no longer be working with the 26-year-old.

A spokesperson for In The Style said: “We can confirm Elle is no longer under contract with the brand. The tweets that have come to light are completely contrary to the values ​​and brand ethos of Elle. In The Style.”

Beauty Works said: “We recently discovered posts posted on the internet from a brand ambassador under contract with Beauty Works. We do not tolerate any form of racism or discrimination and have therefore decided to end our relationship.”
