AN influencer who charged fans $25 to virtually attend her wedding is now being slammed for what she wore to her big day.
After Alexandra Pierce, 37, tied the knot with an unconventional accessory, social media users have called her "tacky" and "spiritually ugly" – but she insists her critics are just "broke a** rats."
Pierce is a popular YouTuber and founder of the jewelry brand HRH Collection.
On Thursday, June 16, she and her husband got married, with followers able to watch live if they sent $25 to her on Venmo.
But those who didn't attend still got to see photos on Instagram, where Pierce shared snaps of herself walking down the aisle and snuggling up to her husband.
In one photo, she wore a short ivory slip dress from Zara, a veil, a multi-strand pearl choker – and a bright green Hermès Birkin bag on her arm.
The image has since been reshared on Twitter, with one user proclaiming: "Making sure ur Birkin is included in ur wedding day photos is so spiritually ugly."
Her tweet has racked up nearly 80,000 likes, and commenters have piled on as well.
Critics have called the move "tacky," "spiritually bankrupt," "nasty," "cheap," and "wrong on multiple levels."
Several have even insisted that it's not a real Birkin bag but a knockoff.

Of course, not everyone is hating: On her Instagram page, followers raved about the look, calling the image "the best wedding photo that ever existed" and "so cute."
And Pierce has no patience for her haters.
In a June 22 YouTube video entitled "Addressing the Devils," Pierce ranted against critics who made fun of her Birkin and said that her overall wedding looked cheap.
"It bothers me when low-grade, broke a** rats try to come for me," she said.
"I don't care about you, but I like to set the record straight for me."
She took issue with anyone critiquing her wedding look, including her Zara dress, saying: "I don't like anything phony. I'm the least phony person ever."
Pierce also found it rude that so many people had nasty things to say about a joyous time in her life.
"I'm really happy right now. And you guys are so vicious and mean. Like, I get it, 'cause you're miserable and ugly. You're a loser," she said.
