However, she has learnt how to deal with those who criticise her.
Answering a question about how she deals with hate, Spiranac said via her Instagram story:
“I’m so desensitised to what people what people say about me now because I’ve been doing this for a long time. One thing that really helped was disconnecting myself from what the situation is.”
“People just love to gossip and have something interesting to talk about,”- Paige Spiranac on being the centre of controversy and attention
Spiranac has over 3.7 million followers on Instagram alone, and 11 million followers across all social media platforms. She has always been up front about her journey and stands up for her rights and expression of creativity and freedom
“So if someone says something negative about me they are basing this judgement off of a couple second clip, or a crazy headline that is not true or off a picture. They don’t know me personally.”
She has often faced issues with body shaming and negative comments on social media. However, this does not stop her.
“So it really doesn’t matter, right? People just love to gossip and have something interesting to talk about. If I’m the centre of that conversation then so be it.”
