‘This is a grown woman with her own daughter!’: Holly Hagan hits back at vile trolls and vows to ‘educate them’ in candid post after sharing comments criticising her figure
She is a strong promoter of body confidence and recently shared honest pictures of herself showing off her cellulite.
But now Holly Hagan has been forced to hit back at trolls on social media after they left vile comments under her previous post.
The 28-year-old Geordie Shore star took to Instagram on Saturday to discuss trolling and address why it happens, and vowed to ‘educate’ users who feel the need to post such horrific words.
‘Let’s talk about trolling’: Holly Hagan, 28, has been forced to hit back at trolls after they left vile comments under her previous Instagram postswhich attempted to normalise cellulite
She re-uploaded one of the pictures she previously shared of her posing in a bikini, showing off her cellulite – only this time, some of the mean comments left by others were edited around her figure.
Penning a lengthy message alongside the picture, Holly wrote: ‘ Let’s talk about trolling..
‘Fortunately I don’t get these comments often anymore. Comments like these were the reason I tried to change my body in the first place.
‘In the beginning 90% of the comments were like this. Before the word ”troll” existed. This was just people ”having their opinion”.
‘Please remember that it’s never about you’: The Geordie Shore star took to social media to discuss trolling and address why it happens, and vowed to ‘educate’ users
‘In the past I would have said: ”I have no idea why someone would post a comment like that”.. but the fact is I do know.
‘They’re hurting. They’re projecting whatever they feel about themselves onto someone else. So that for one second they can be distracted from their own misery. It was never about me.
‘This is a grown woman with her own daughter and I hope No1 ever speaks to her child in the same manner.
‘It saddens me because she’s going to be raising a little girl to do what she does. Children aren’t born with hate in their heart. They copy their parents, they do what they see their parents do. If mummy comments on other woman’s appearances in a negative manner then why can’t she?
Body confidence: She shared one of the snaps she previously shared of her posing in a bikini – only this time, some of the comments left by others were included (pictured on Thursday)
‘Upon looking at her account I can only find the odd group picture all of which have a Snapchat filter. I’m no therapist so I won’t try to diagnose her but in my experience and what I’ve learnt from trolling is that this is probably a person who dislikes themselves.
‘I’ve NEVER come across a happy, confident, successful internet troll. They just do not exist. Because happy, confident, successful people do not feel the need to bring others down.
‘Rather than let it get to me or make me sad I’m just pleased I can use this as an opportunity to educate. You may get a million positive comments but it only takes ONE to make you question yourself. Am I good enough?
‘I’m at a point in my life now where I know I am good enough. I know what I have to offer and that extends way past my physical appearance.
‘But there are people out there who are struggling, who are getting comments like this daily and doubting their worth. Just know that you are enough. And the only reason anyone would ever want to bring you down is because you are already above them in every way.
‘Please remember that it’s never about you ❤️’
Holly’s message comes less than a week after she showcased her cellulite and vowed she ‘wasn’t going to hide anymore’ in some sizzling social media snaps.
She wowed in a black bikini top and green floral bottoms as she displayed her posterior and legs – while revealing she had only recently summoned the courage to do so recently.

The stunning star’s unedited photos were unedited as Holly said she was ’embracing’ her cellulite.
Penning a message alongside the pictures, Holly wrote: ‘Cellulite ain’t going anywhere so I might as well embrace it.
‘If there’s one good thing that came from my time away it was gaining the confidence to walk around in public without covering my legs.
‘Wearing shorts and skirts for the first time and being able to enjoy the sun without worrying.
‘This trend of people being more ‘real’ on Instagram has helped me so much and I’m not going to hide anymore.’
