A model has hit back at trolls who cruelly claim she ‘looks like a female Mr Bean’.
Fabiola Baglieri, from Rome, Italy, became a viral sensation on TikTok after sharing a transformation video where she used make-up to make herself look less ‘well-groomed’.
However, she was left hurt when people began making comments about her appearance, with some saying she looked like Mr Bean, the iconic British comedy character played by Rowan Atkinson.
Despite being annoyed over the comments at first, Fabiola now says she no longer listens to the negative comments that bullies have to say.
Speaking to LADbible, the 18-year-old said she now focuses on positive messages she receives.
She said: “Right after that video, people noticed that the initial makeup made me look like Mr Bean in the female version.
“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.”
She added: “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.”
Despite comment from the trolls, Fabiola said many of her other followers have shown her an enormous amount of support since that video was originally posted back in March.
Commenting on one of her most recent videos, one user told her: “Girl you’re beautiful, don’t listen to them.”
While another added: “Don’t listen to them. You are so pretty and so talented.”
Another TikTok star who recently hit back at trolls is redhead Jessica Blair.
She flaunted her “sexy, saggy tummy” on the site to show that anyone can wear low-rise jeans.
Jessica said she doesn’t care about showing off her figure anymore as she branded herself “hot”.
