You know those TikTok videos where influencers show off their luxurious life; travel around the world, stay in 5-star hotels, drink the finest wine, dine in the fanciest restaurants and still have time to workout after work? Too good of a life to be true right?
We’re not at all saying that all these influencers are living fake lives but you can’t blame people for being suspicious especially if these TikTokers claim to have such a demanding job. Remember Faisal Aljofry who got slammed for flaunting his BMWi8? Well, this time netizens are calling him out for flaunting his ‘fake’ lifestyle.
For context, Faisal Aljofry is a 25-year-old Forex Trader who regularly posts videos of his lifestyle as a Forex trader on his TikTok. One of his most recent TikTok videos is gaining a lot of attention with over 876.6k views, 50.5k likes and 1.2k comments. The “A Day in My Life” video is also making waves on Twitter.
As the title suggests, the TikToker brings his followers along on what he does on a daily basis. According to the Forex trader, he starts his day by doing trading work at 9am, goes out for a fancy lunch at 12pm, shopping at 1pm, resumes work at 2pm, chill with his friends at 4pm, workout at 6pm, attend online class at 8pm and have dinner while watching Netflix at 10pm.
Netizens on both TikTok and Twitter are calling Faisal out for not accurately showcasing the actual life of a trader. Some even claim to be traders themselves and said they don’t have the time of the day for themselves, so how could the 25-year-old have all this free time and money?
Not all comments were negative though as there were also many positive comments who are happy for him and the life he’s living. Faisal didn’t respond to any of the negative comments and it’s highly unlikely that he will as he mentioned previously that those comments “won’t make a dent in my bank account.”
Do you think he’s faking his life a trader?
