The mother of Lil Tay—a tiny, foul-mouthed kid with a penchant for making it rain for her 1.7 million Instagram followers—has been fired from her job at a Vancouver real estate agency, according to a report from Daily Hive.
Earlier this week, VICE published a story explaining who Lil Tay is. In short, she’s a nine-year-old girl who appears to have a shitload of money and luxury cars she isn’t able to drive. She is, in her own words, the “youngest flexer of the century!”
Lil Tay’s antics include taunting other people for not being as wealthy as she is (“Bitch, I just bought a Lamborghini! Y’all bitches can’t afford this shit, OK?”) and beefing with her counterpart Bhad Bhabie a.k.a. the “cash me ousside” girl.
But it seems the recent headlines about Lil Tay have resulted in her mom, Vancouver real estate agent Angela Tian, being fired. Tian has at times been seen filming her daughter in the backdrop of her videos. According to Daily Hive, Tian’s former firm Pacific West Realty confirmed it terminated her employment, which lasted six months.
“When we found out about this activity last week we had to dismiss her,” Jim Lew, director of business development for Pacific Place Group, told Daily Hive, noting the behavior in Lil Tay’s videos has “no place” in the real estate industry. VICE has reached out to Lew for additional comment but has not yet heard back.
Judging by the fat stacks of dollars Lil Tay enjoys flashing, she may be able to help her mom out.
