Australian Influencer and YouTuber Jamie Zhu is being criticized by the internet for faking a broken ankle to upgrade his long-haul flight. Yikes!

And here’ s the thing: it worked. The airlines believed his injury and changed his seat from economy to business class.

Jamie Zhu, who currently has over 706,000 YouTube subscribers, is known for producing prank videos.

In a video titled, “How To Fly Business Class For FREE!,” he even showed his viewers his trip to and from the pharmacy to buy an orthopedic boot for the 8-hr flight.

Once he seated, he expressed his surprise that he cannot believe the prank worked.

Upon leaving, a flight stewardess told him “I hope your ankle gets better…,” to which Jamie laughingly admitted he has completely forgotten about.

As of press, the video garnered over 128,000 views, mostly due to its controversy.

Netizens were not exactly swayed by his stunt. Viewers of his left comments calling him out for incorrectly using his platform, considering that he has a young audience.

Some accused him that what he just committed was fraud.

Some claimed that what he just committed was fraud.
