An influencer has gone viral on social media after revealing that she "accidentally" bought a $100,000 couch.

Quenlin "Quen" Blackwell, 21, took to TikTok to share a video of herself crying in her car and saying that she "was joking" when she put her card information into an online bid to buy an expensive piece of furniture.

The influencer - who has almost 8 million followers on the video-sharing app - then asked her followers if a millionaire could let her borrow some money to pay for it back.

"I almost crashed my car when I saw it, If you have a million dollars could you please donate? If you have a billion dollars can you let me borrow some please?" Blackwell pleaded.

Check out Blackwell's TikTok below:

The clip amassed 6.8 million views and 1.1 million likes and sparked a debate in its comments sections. Users discussed whether the story was real and criticized Blackwell for being out of touch with the economic problems other people face.

One user wrote: "And the Oscar goes to...."

Another commented: "I don’t feel bad for people who have the money for these kinds of jokes. I can’t even jokingly spend an extra $5."

A third said: "I keep saying the wrong people have money. Who ** is stupid or bored enough to place a $100,000 bid on a couch as a JOKE?"

A fourth joked: "Ur going to be a comedy actor one day."

Again, viewers in the comments section criticized Blackwell for her video, saying they were shocked that she asked people to send her money.

On Monday (October 10), Blackwell posted a follow-up TikTok, which was captioned "they won't give me a refund on the couch," and revealed that she was planning to set up an OnlyFans account to make money,

"I don't want to, but I'm going to have to," she said, adding that she also needed money for dental work and to replace a side mirror on her car.

"I don't want to do a job. I'm about to throw up because I know they didn't refund me," Blackwell explained in the video. She then added a link to an OnlyFans account in her Instagram bio.
