Body Positive Influencer Slams Back Trolls Who Called Her A ‘Bush Pig’

“I want to almost normalize receiving this kind of behavior online.”

Karina Irby, the designer/influencer, has been hit with cruel comments and received death threats from people who do not appreciate her takes on body positivity or job as a bikini designer.

The influencer has over 1.2 million followers on the platform but was called a “bush pig” in one of the hate messages.

One of the trolls wrote, “You’re a proper bush pig that profits off overweight women’s insecurities. Just puked after seeing this atrocious despicable piece of skin. That’s enough to put me off red meat. Sometimes people just should keep those tuckshop cheeks to themselves.”

Karina, whose posts often revolve around body positivity and uplifting messages for fellow plus-size users shared a shocking compilation of hate messages in a recent post. She shared, “My DM’s are a consistent influx of abusive judgment, made-up assumptions, and downright bullying.”

She clarifies that she’s “fine” and does not need “sympathy” from this post, but after hearing someone else who was affected by the same thing she was going through, Karina decided to call out, “Knowing that people hide behind fake accounts to send comments like this is just gutless and coward like behavior.”

“Not only would they never say these things to your face, but they won’t even comment from their ‘main’ account. It says a lot more about them than you.”

“As much as I hate to say this… I want to almost normalize receiving this kind of behavior online. It shouldn’t happen. But it does, all the time to thousands of people,” she continued. “If you find yourself on the receiving end of someone’s online bullying, please speak up, reach out and try not to hold onto their words.”

“Sometimes this can be easier said than done. But no matter what, you’re never alone, and I’m so sorry you’re going through this. You don’t deserve it.”

“I’ll keep naming and shaming these cowards to not only stand up for myself but to hopefully show others you can take the control back. Bullying is NEVER ok.”
