TikTok influencer Winnie Parker, known for her controversial statements in the past, is once again under fire for her latest fundraising endeavor.

Parker, who previously faced backlash for comments about her audience demographics, recently launched a GoFundMe campaign seeking $3,000 to hire a matchmaker in hopes of finding love.

The influencer’s video explaining her rationale for the fundraiser sparked immediate criticism from the TikTok community.

In the video, Parker described her struggles as a single mother in Atlanta and expressed her belief that hiring a matchmaker could lead to her own version of the popular reality TV show, “The Bachelorette.”

However, many users found Parker’s request tone-deaf and inappropriate, particularly given the current economic climate.

Despite the backlash, Parker defended her idea, comparing the fundraising effort to paying for entertainment subscriptions like Netflix.

“I think people just found it extremely tone deaf to ask for that amount of money. Especially in this economy,” one user commented.

Parker responded:

“I wasn’t just asking for money I was going to create content around this. It’s no different than paying for a Netflix subscription.”

After facing significant criticism, Parker ultimately deleted the video but left the GoFundMe campaign active.

The controversy has reignited discussions about influencer culture and the boundaries of fundraising on social media platforms.
