“After the second photo went viral, I got a lot of backlash for that as well, but not only did I enjoy what I had to say, but I also got a lot of support from people who enjoyed seeing me in a bikini,” D’Errico said.
She continued: “And I think I’m just tired of the judgment and the bullying and all the hate. It would be nice to post some things and not have that happen. And honestly, regular social media doesn’t do that for me. There’s a lot of judgment and hate out there.”
“I know there’s not much you can do about it, because it’s always going to be there. You have all these keyboard warriors who feel really powerful, taunting others, knocking them down while hiding behind a computer.”
“So much has happened to me in my career since I became a public figure,” added D’Errico. “And while it doesn’t really bother me, most of the time, I’d still like to post things without those repercussions. So I finally said, ‘Damn it.'”
