Instagram Model Chloe Morello Defends Bikini Picture After Shamers Ask If She's Pregnant

Instagram Model Chloe Morello Defends Bikini Picture After Shamers Ask If She's Pregnant

Instagram model Chloe Morello has hit back at online trolls for commenting on a picture of her at the beach asking if she's pregnant.

The 29-year-old Australian posted a snap of herself wearing a bikini while on holiday in Cabo, Mexico, and while many of her one million followers praised the model's holiday look, a number of fat-shamers directed negative comments about the size of her stomach (which, let's face it, is as flat and toned as could be).

One user wrote: "Two words of advice; salad bar," while another asked, "Boy or girl," implying she's pregnant. A third said: "I hope it's a girl."

A number of followers were on hand to defend Chloe (and point out that her body is just fine - at least I'm not the only one who can see that).

One person wrote: "Very beautiful woman! Enjoy your vacation and ignore the idiots!"

Another added: "Sexy as hell!! Don't listen to the haters Chloe, there probably a bunch of overweight Cheeto eating fools!!"

Despite the kind words from those jumping to her defence, the model herself decided to hit back at the haters too, replying to one commenter with: "Clearly not? Wtf? It's really, really rude and unacceptable to ask that to someone! Don't do it again as it can really upset people for so many reasons."

This is just one of many examples of the downside of social media. Yes, Chloe does have well over a million followers and can therefore make thousands of pounds for a post.

Instagram Influencer Branded 'Disgusting' After 'Baby Dolphin' Prank

However, that means taking some slack when it comes to self confidence - whether it's positive attention or, in this case, negative, it's a matter of having your exterior ripped apart by people on a daily basis.

Instagram Model Causes Controversy With 'Degrading' Naked Picture Of His Girlfriend

published at2 years ago

This was something personal trainer and social media influencer Amanda Lee expressed, stating that the years of building her online profile has started to take its toll.

Speaking to Cosmopolitan, she said: "Once I got all the followers, I re-evaluated things - like, is this really me? For my mental health, I don't want to get so wrapped up in perfection. I want to be more confident in myself without trying so hard.

"I always wanted to appeal to everyone, but I got seduced by people's responses and side-tracked trying to maintain this curvy physique and build a sexy brand."

As a result, Amanda's mum Olinda Fields said that her daughter 'still gets anxious', as there's a 'lot of pressure' to post everyday and 'people tend to be critical of your looks'.

Both Chloe's and Amanda's cases unfortunately aren't unique - they join a number of influencers who have come out and spoken about the darker side of social media in recent years.

Hopefully their statements will help the younger generation to realise the life people portray online isn't realistic and the constant strive for perfection is not a healthy path to follow.
