Chloe Lattanzi, 30, posted a video on Instagram on Tuesday to hit back at her “haters” who accused the singer of photoshopping her images, detailing how much anonymous criticism can affect her.
After writing her thoughts, Lattanzi made her account private.
“With new followers comes new weirdos,” she began the post. “I am such a sensitive creature you have no idea. Please if you don’t know me don’t make comments like you do.”
Lattanzi went on to claim that trolling makes Instagram a platform that is “less fun” and “scary” to engage in.
“I’m not dumb. I’m not a drug addict, and I have a kind heart. I know I shouldn’t care about random people who have their own problems so they decide to take it out on me, but I just don’t get it.
“I know I’m not dumb or vapid or fake... all I ever give people is love and kindness and it’s so weird that there are people out there who want to bring others down."
Lattanzi acknowledged her reason for publishing the rant was to make public how much random comments from strangers had an impact.
"I just wanted to get real and bring to light the real effects of this problem. Everyone gets hate, and that's sad.
"I don't believe the things they say, I know I'm not dumb and I know I have talent. But wow, the darkness from others can really affect me. I wish you all the love, I wish the world was different," she wrote.
The singer and face of Equestrian Designs has been the focus of public attention and concern since she was just a teenager, battling an eating disorder in front of very public and prying eyes.
