Saffron Barker, 19, is the latest contestant to join the Strictly Come Dancing 2019 celebrity line-up. However, the YouTube star risks a negative reaction after a video she filmed about train delays has reemerged. In the clip, the vlogger, who has over two million followers on her channel, complained about being held up by public transport. She said: “[It should have taken] 50 minutes, but instead it took me four and a half hours. So that was amazing.
It meant that I couldn’t get home and it wasn’t just I couldn’t get home, it was the most stressful thing.
“So basically, obviously it’s really sad, someone did get hit by a train, but it meant that I couldn’t get home and it wasn’t just I couldn’t get home, it was the most stressful thing.”(sic)
The social media personality then went on to rant about the lack of bus replacement services following the incident.
She continued: “They weren’t doing no buses to help anyone, I was in an hour taxi line, stood in the cold for an hour taxi line.”
Twitter users shared the video after Saffron’s Strictly announcement was revealed on the micro-blogging site.
One tweeted the clip with the caption: “Remember that time Saffron complained that her train was delayed because someone took their own life?”
Another added: “This the same saffron barker that moaned about a train line suicide delaying her journey?”
