A model who 'looks like a female Mr Bean' has hit out at the internet trolls who tried to bully her. Watch one of her videos below:
Fabiola Baglieri, from Rome, Italy, has become a bit of a viral sensation since sharing a transformation video of herself where she used make-up to make herself look less 'well-groomed'.
The video led to people making comments about her appearance, with some saying she looked like Mr Bean, the iconic British comedy character played by Rowan Atkinson.
And while at first she was hurt by the comments, Fabiola no longer listens to the negative comments that bullies have to say.
Speaking to LADbible, the 18-year-old said she now focuses on the positive messages she receives.
"Right after that video, people noticed that the initial makeup made me look like Mr Bean in the female version," says the teen.
"Initially, I didn't take it very well because I found it offensive, but as the months went on, I realised that this was one of my strong points.
"The comments were immediately all negative - I find it hard to remember any of the positive ones even if there were (there were some) - but I will never stop thanking those who have always supported me.
"At the beginning, it was not easy to see all those comments, it was like I was living in another reality, in which everyone feels able to offend someone just because they are behind a screen (the so-called keyboard warriors) practising what is known as cyberbullying."
But luckily for Fabiola, her followers have shown her an enormous amount of support since that video was originally posted back in March.
Commenting on a recent vid, one user said: "Girl you're beautiful, don't listen to them."
While another added: "Don't listen to them. You are so pretty and so talented."
Fabiola now accepts that there will always be people out there who will try and bring others down no matter what. But she says she won't let it get to her.
"Over time, I have learned that people like this exist and will always exist and that the most important thing to do is to have your own consideration of yourself, to be aware of who you are, without having to go and seek confirmation from others," she tells us.
"And it was from that moment that it seemed as if every negative comment didn't even exist.
"The only thing that was really important was how I felt about myself and everything that others thought was null and void."
Adding: "So if someone wants to do something risky but is afraid of what people can do, just do it, leave others behind and know how to transform your weaknesses into your strengths."
