Tik Tok Star Charly Jordan Under Fire For Traveling Mid-Pandemic – Teen Blurb

Influencer Charly Jordan apologized to her fans on Monday for traveling to Rwanda amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. In her Instagram story she stated “[it is a] very incorrect time to travel and I’m completely in the wrong for doing that.”

The apology comes after a wild couple of days for Jordan, who has more than 5 million followers on TikTok and Instagram. Last Wednesday, Jordan told her followers that she had “made it to Rwanda” and added that she was free of the virus.  

Jordan’s trip started without issues. She posted a photo with Silverback Gorillas along with various dancing and eating videos on Tik Tok. Things soon took a turn for the worst, though, after having tested positive for COVID-19. In a TikTok video, Jordan tearfully said, “literally the f—ing government showed up at my place, and came and dragged me away from everybody I was with, and I don’t speak the language, and they locked me in this f—ing room. And I can’t leave” Jordan added that the Rwandan government wasn’t telling her any information about her mandatory quarentine.

After four days on a mandatory monitored lockdown, Jordan news that her test had been a false positive. She followed up with her fans on TikTok, saying “I knew that I didn’t have it.”

On Monday, Jordan apologized on Instagram for her irresponsible behavior: “I would like to make an apology for traveling during this time, because I know that it’s a very incorrect time to travel, and I’m completely in the wrong for doing that, and I have learned my lesson one hundred percent,” she said. “Trust me. I’ve been sitting here in this room, locked in this room for the past four days thinking about it, and I will not be traveling anymore during this time.”
