Australian influencer QUITS social media after receiving a barrage of negative comments

An Australian social media influencer has decided to ‘take a break’ from Instagram this weekend after receiving a number of negative comments about her ‘real’ body.

Sydney model Ariella Nyssa, 22, said she had the ‘worst f***ing day’ on Thursday after opening up about modelling agencies ‘weighing her’ and then ‘rejecting’ her from their books. 

She received a number of negative comments from some of her 250,000 who questioned whether she had a right to be angry.

‘I’ve had comments over the last few days stating “Just because you’re not hot enough to be a Victoria’s Secret angel you are having a whinge” and “You have to have a law degree to be a lawyer, just like you have to have a modelling body to be a model,” she said.

Ariella said she would normally just ignore hateful comments but these made her particularly frustrated.

‘Some of these comments are f***ing ridiculous and shows exactly how much impact the industry and social media has on our minds,’ she said.

As a result of the hate comments she has decided to quit Instagram for a few days to relax

'I am just in shock… I am taking a little break from Instagram this weekend. I need to get off it, de-stress and not think about it because it has made me really angry and I am really obsessing over it,' she said

‘Who told you what a modelling body is? Who the f*** says what a modelling body is? Shouldn’t we all be represented? Shouldn’t we all feel beautiful enough to wear clothing from ALL brands?’

Previously, Ariella claimed while brands and modelling agencies don’t directly say her body is their reason for rejecting her, their actions speak louder than words.

She told 9Honey even the brands that on the surface promoted body inclusivity would turn her away because she wasn’t the ‘right fit’.

‘I was too short for them, my boobs were too big, they even weighed me and then told me I couldn’t model for them,’ she said. 

While Ariella has been able to grow an Instagram following of a few hundred thousand, she said big companies reject or simply completely ignore her requests to collaborate. 

One of her friends, meanwhile, was given work with a company who rejected her.

‘They’d say “oh, we’re not looking at the moment” but then I’d see that my friend who is a size six has just started working with them,’ Ariella said. 

‘Every time I try to push past these beauty standards I get shut down. I’m so over trying to show people the beauty in all of us.’

After the bumpy start to her influencer career, the young woman said she then hit the gym five days a week in order to try and fit the required mould.

‘I stopped taking my own advice because of all of this rejection,’ she said.

With her struggles to conform are now behind her, Ariella pushes for others to appreciate the beauty of all body shapes.

‘Just because I’m not a size 6 or a size 16 doesn’t mean I’m not beautiful.’

‘I’ll be posting my favourite photo shoot, pictures of my “excessive skin”, “undesirable body type”, “boobs that are too big”, “love handles”, “back fat” and “cellulite” for your enjoyment, she wrote in a recent Instagram post.
