She took to Instagram to address these comments, as well as to encourage and reassure other women who had gone through the same experience.[12] Her response to the incident was also documented in her caption which said,”

“...What I wear, how I look and what I put out there - does not excuse their gross behavior in damaging comments & making themselves feel better at my or someone else’s expense. …”[12]

Chrysan has shared screenshots of the accounts who had left the negative comments via an Instagram Highlight.[13]
