A strange message was posted to Lil Tay’s Instagram Story yesterday and it’s left fans really worried.

In 2018, a 9-year-old girl from Canada gained internet fame after posting a number of controversial videos on Instagram where she showed off her lavish lifestyle.

Lil Tay, whose real name is Claire, rapped about her expensive cars, houses and designer gear and often used racial slurs, which was met with some criticism.

She gained over two million followers on Instagram and became a social media sensation, but then she strangely disappeared and her Instagram has been inactive since 2018.

Now, a bizarre message has suddenly appeared on Lil Tay’s Instagram Story, and it’s left fans really concerned.
