Virtual model Lil Miquela (Lil Miquela) spoke about sexual harassment during a carpool trip in a taxi. In social networks, the plot was criticized for trying to make the character “more real” with the help of a fictional story about violence.

It is not known where the video came from, but it began to gain popularity after the publication of Twitter user @CORNYASSBITCH. In the video, Mikela talked about how Lyft was called, and during the trip another passenger began to harass her.

I have a lot of questions…

The passenger first asked if she was real, and then touched her thigh: “I absolutely clearly felt this guy’s cold and big hand, he touched my leg, as if checking if I was real.” She stated that the man threatened her, pinched and asked an inappropriate question about her sexuality, after which the girl asked the driver to stop the car and left in the middle of the road.

Twitter criticized the plot. Users wondered if it was ethical to add realism to fictional characters through stories of sexual abuse. The social network considered the video offensive to real victims of harassment.

Not. 
At first it was interesting. 
Maybe. 
But, Mikela, you play with real stories … Real trauma … Sexual abuse is part of a very terrible reality. 
Now you are insulting people without even realizing it. 
What kind of weird crap is this?


Absolutely, b *** b, no. A virtual project telling me a story about fake sexual violence infuriates me just like when women lie. It’s a lie. And it’s dangerous. There are many other ways to make Michela appealing.

They really just came up with a sexual harassment scenario … God

I do not know what to think about it. They created a story about violence to make her character more realistic.

The person behind this character has obviously gone through a lot to make her as realistic as possible. They even studied YouTube videos to understand which montage is popular right now. And there were these: “To make her more realistic, let’s pretend that she was sexually harassed”

Well, out of all the things you could think of, you chose sexual harassment

Just argued with my boyfriend about this person. How dangerous it can be, and how sick bastards will find a way to do this stupidity. And they could. I’m n **** how uncomfortable. Just listen to how real people talk about sexual abuse. It sounds very strange

Others began to joke about the virtual model.

Why is this gigabyte coming up with this garbage

Are we officially in the Black Mirror episode?

User @sadinthebooth suggested that perhaps the girl who voiced Mikelu experienced this experience.

However, she was reminded that the digital model is a major project that several people are involved in creating.

Mikela is a team, not one person. Therefore the video seems even more creepy

Let’s not forget that Lil Mikela is a white woman who pretends to be a black representative of LGBT + and a victim of sexual violence, while at the same time earning on this and taking away work from REAL marginalized people


CGI-market is a back door for companies that make money from situations and foreign cultures, creating a fictional character without having to deal with real people

Lil Mikela is considered one of the first and most popular digital models. In her instagram, she participates in collaboration with brands; on the YouTube channel she uploads music videos with songs of her “own” composition. In April 2018, the media found out that behind the model is a group of people from Brud who attract large investments from investors from Silicon Valley.
