I'm a gypsy girl – here's how it really feels growing up in traveller community | The Sun

A WOMAN who describes herself as a gypsy has shared what it's like growing up in a traveller community.

Amy Taylor says most people assume she lives in a caravan and almost nobody trusts her.

The TikTok user, who goes by amyjordonsbackup on the app, posted a video with the caption: "The truth."

In it, she writes that being part of the gypsy community means being asked to leave bars and watched closely by security staff in shops.

She also claims people ask to check her bags before leaving some stores and strangers assume she lives in a caravan.

Finally, Amy says people often think that gypsies are "no good" and that they are "all the same".
