‘I had to lose the cap. I won’t wear a cap out of principle. I’ll go back to it, I just don’t want it to define my image,’ she said.

She’s worn different different coloured hats in the past, including red caps, which she was trolled for on social media by her American followers during the Presidential election. 

‘I’m usually good with that stuff, but there was an election going on and I was posting pictures of myself in caps and I didn’t want people to think I was sending any messages,’ she said.
