The Bachelor’s Bella Varelis called out a cruel troll on her Instagram Story on Thursday, after they sent her disgusting body shaming messages.

Responding to her latest bikini pictures, the anonymous troll asked Bella ‘what she’s so proud of?’ while remarking she has ‘no tits or hips’ and her bottom half is a ‘strange shape’.

As she then shared the messages publicly, the 25-year-old explained that she has previously battled with an ‘eating disorder, depression and anxiety’ and messages like this can be triggering.

Here’s what Bella said in response to the disgusting messages:

‘People like this are the reason young women and men struggle with body image and self esteem. It disgusts me that this person thinks it’s okay to even comment negatively on another human’s physical appearance. Issues with body image can lead to eating disorders, depression and anxiety, which is something I used to deal with personally and I do not take this lightly. Although I wish it didn’t affect me, I am still human. Check yourself.’

Well said, Bella!

Please continue calling out abuse like this and hopefully people will realise trolling is never acceptable.

  1. I was being realistic. Unlike the Bondi bike who did nothing but screw things up for Irena and expects courtesy from commenters. It doesn’t work like that. If she’s nice, others will be nice to her. Using pitty is a low card. There are people who are actually suffering from eating disorders, and severe depression and are in treatment or in hospitals. They can’t get out of bed or eat. Don’t you feel for them? Doesn’t she feel for them? Who’s telling their stories? Why doesn’t she start improving her self worth and show a kinder side. Take a leaf from your own book and keep your words to yourself if you can’t be nice. 🤪

    1. Arrrrrh yes, ‘Kevin’ ? Or is this Bella? Bella needs to stop looking for attention and needs to look at improving her image. Read all the comments, not just on this site but everywhere and count the negative comments aimed at her. Why? Go figure! Telling people to shut up because they are sharing an opinion based on facts they have seen on TV or from Bella’s articles is hardly nice. You want people to be nice Kevin/Bella, start by being nice yourself!

    2. Hey Kevin you a supporter of censorship by any chance? As i’ve said before, Bella’s antics on the show and her talking shit about Irena and Locky afterwards just to stay relevant are open to criticism.

    3. Kevin- if that’s your real identity. How dare you tell us to shut up? This is a forum for readers and viewers of various shows to communicate their opinions. If you don’t like what you read then may I suggest you run along and play else where. 🤪

  2. Hang on a minute! It’s ok for Bella to say to Irena, ‘ You’re a manipulative little bitch’, on TV on the Bachelor? Bella is full of doubled standards, Bella is a liar, and manipulates others so she be popular. Having an eating disorder, anxiety, and depression is something no one should have to go through. If Bella is strong enough to be seen out and about chasing men, trying hard to get attention, then attention she will get. Both good and bad. I don’t condone body shaming, but I also don’t condone the abusive nasty comments she threw at Irena and the way she manipulated the girls in the mansion and Locky by putting down Irena.
    I know so many people who have severe depression and can’t leave the house. They find it difficult to shower once a week let alone daily, they don’t leave their bedrooms and barely eat.
    If the Bondi bike doesn’t like the comments coming her way, then try and be a good role model. There are impressionable youths who are like sponges reading watching people who are TV and online. What about them?
    Stop with the self pitty Bella and do something decent that reflects good moral standards. Then and only then will you get the good ‘attention’ you are looking for!
