“But hey, I’m from here, I had to put up with being from here and nothing to do,” added the young woman to her reflection.
In Colombia, the ‘influencer’ Daniela Ardila has been criticized after making known her personal perception on different issues and, in particular, for saying that she hated her country.
In her stories on Instagram, Ardila spoke, among other things, about the possibility of working as a waitress, arguing that she would not do it in Colombia, but in another country.
“I can work as a waitress while, to me it is not a shame. Let’s say here in Colombia a little bit, but in another country I don’t feel sorry for taking a bus. Here I’m disgusted, scared“he commented.
To this, he added: “You know that I hate Colombia, but hey, I’m from here, I had to put up with being from here and nothing to do. Everyone with their tastes.”
For and against
Criticism against the ‘influencer’ rained on social networks. Some invited her to leave Colombia. “Leave the country and that’s it,” mentioned a user on Twitter; while another commented that “the world is quite wide”, so “You can go and the sooner the better.”
Some time I saw content in tiktok of this girl, she is a pure rich girl and she goes out with that nonsense that she leaves the country and voila, what if the life of the majority of Colombian apie had touched her.

Well may madam, the world is quite wide, you can leave and the sooner the better, in the country we neither want nor need beings like you. And those who follow that lady, stop following her, it’s a shame. 🤨👎

If you don’t like Colombia, that’s fine, it’s your right to live with a complex. But is she really saying that it’s a shame to work as a waitress and take a bus? Shame to be her.

Others came to his defense, claiming that he said what other people dare not say. “The best one can do is leave”said one of the users on Twitter; another commented that if he does not like the country, “the truth is, he will have his reasons.”
He is absolutely right, and as in his time, the teachers Fernando Vallejo and Gabriel García left this “country”. The best one can do is to leave, this banana plantation treats in a very bad way those who struggle to get ahead, and does nothing to improve their destiny.

The sidewalk is that public buses in Colombia are disgusting, they are in poor condition and they are never cleaned, much less disinfected. We all disgust buses in Colombia, what happens is that nobody says it and most of us have to continue taking them.

I do not think it is a crime not to love the country if you do not like it because the truth will have its reasons

Later, after the criticism, Ardila pointed out that his words were misrepresented and indicated that his intention was to talk about the economic situation in the country. “I hope you understand what I was going for and do not misrepresent my words again because I am sure that, like me, there are many who think this way. I’m sure my ‘haters’ also think that way, “she justified.
