Instagram’s ‘Girl With No Job’ is No Longer a Girl with a Job

It seems Instagram’s “Girl With No Job” is, as of recently, no longer a girl with a job. After fans unearthed some Islamophobic tweets from over five years ago, Claudia Oshry Soffer, the woman behind this popular Instagram account, received backlash, ultimately resulting in the cancelation of her online Oath talk show “The Morning Breath.” Oshry hosted the online Oath show with her sister Jackie. Oath released the following statement in response to the controversy: "'The Morning Breath,' an Oath social media show, is being canceled immediately and we have launched an internal investigation and will take other appropriate steps based on the results of the investigation." The tech platform has not released any further information on what exactly they are investigating. The show was produced by the pair’s older sister Olivia, and regularly guest-starred their sister Margo, who is most well known for her Instagram food-porn account @hungoverandhungry_.

The sisters reportedly went to great lengths to conceal the identity of their mother, über-conservative pundit Pamela Geller, a diehard Trump supporter and known anti-Islam activist. Geller is well known as the president of Stop Islamization of America. It’s understandable why they would want to hide the identity of their mother, but after the information leaked in an article on Daily Beast, followers dove deep into the recesses of both Claudia's and Jackie’s Twitter accounts, where they found many controversial tweets. In 2014, Claudia tweeted, "I can't help but feel like I'm funding terrorism when I take a cab," as well as a separate tweet calling former president Barack Obama a Muslim back in 2012. The tweets, along with both Claudia’s and Jackie’s Twitter accounts have since been deleted.

Despite the outpour of criticism, many of the Oshry sisters’ fans, who call themselves “Breathers,” remain loyal to the sisters, expressing their love and support via Twitter and Instagram. “We have all said or posted things we have regretted. The only difference is that you are in the public eye. We know you’re not racist. Head up. Don’t let this slow you down!” one fan Tweeted on March 1. Another fan on Instagram pointed out that "you can’t help who your parents are or what they believe."

Both Claudia, 23, and Jackie, 25, have since released public apologies. In a teary-eyed video, Claudia expressed remorse to her 2.8 million Instagram followers: “First and foremost, I just need to apologize. Some news broke this morning about who my mom is and then some really disgusting, vile, stupid tweets of mine resurfaced." She continues, attributing her tweets to her age. “I was 16 and I thought I was being funny and cool on Twitter—and it's not." She also expressed that she wanted her followers to know that she’s not racist, despite what her mother believes, and asked everyone for a second chance to prove herself, saying, “It's so important for you to know that's not who I am. And if you give me the opportunity to show you who I am and what I stand for, I would be so grateful. I understand that these things take time and what I did was not okay. I'm so sorry."
