Influencer Mikaela Testa claims she hasn’t left her house for a week after being fat-shamed by a fellow Aussie influencer.
News.com.au reported that Adelaide model Kerri Gribble took to her Snapchat after an event where she had met Testa to make the mean comments.
In the since-deleted Snapchat video, the model said she had a ‘public service announcement' to make.
"Mikaela Testa is fat in person," Gribble said.
Following the influencer's scathing comments, the OnlyFans creator revealed in a TikTok that she had not left the house since.
While she didn’t name Gribble, she disclosed she had been 'fat-shamed' by another influencer.
In the emotional video, Testa said: "I have not left the house in a week since that comment was made because I don’t like what I look like and I don’t want to be seen by anyone."
The model added she had previously struggled with an eating disorder prompting her to get cosmetic surgery.
She said: "I struggled with an ed [eating disorder] between the ages of 16 to 21 and it was one of the reasons why I got my surgery because I thought it would fix whatever was wrong with my brain.
"The last thing that I wanted was for this to be resurfaced and brought back because I don’t know how to fix it."
Many were left outraged by Gribble’s body-shaming remarks, with TikTok users tagging WhiteFox Boutique, who the model works with, threatening to boycott the fashion brand.
OnlyFans creator Jamie Lee King said in a social media video, which has already accumulated 1.3 million views, revealed she refuses to support the online fashion brand in response to the scandal.
In a statement to news.com.au, WhiteFox Boutique said it was 'no longer an affiliate' with Gribble.
According to the Daily Mail, the model apologised for her comments via an Instagram story while admitting she never intended for the video to go public.
Instead, she meant to send it to a friend.
She added: "I'm still a human, I make mistakes, I say bad things, I yell, I scream, I cry, I don't do anything different to absolutely anybody else. I am so happy to be me, and that I'm grown and mature enough to forgive and love myself even after making mistakes."
She continued: "Fat is not a disgusting word to me. I was taken aback because Mik looked different in person BUT not bad! She was still gorgeous."
