Chloe Bailey Opens Up About Being Bullied Online

Chloe Bailey is unapologetic.

She opens with her criticisms on social media about her successful career in Taraji P. Henson’s Peace of Mind finale season.

Bailey goes live on Instagram to address controversy sharing her sexier side earlier this year. She was “just tired because I am still insecure even now,” she admits to Henson.

She explained, ”We all have our things, especially in the world of social media and a world of seeing the best version of everyone else. You are like, well, I got to fix this. I am not changing. It hurts my feelings. Don’t like it, but I am not changing for anyone.”

She later admitted that she was particularly hurt by struggling with body image since she was a preteen.

Bailey said, “I have always been curvy to the point where sometimes it was like my biggest insecurity. I remember getting stretch marks when I was 12 years. I still have them on my thighs. I have gone older, and I have learned to appreciate my curves and love my stretch marks.”

She added, “I am not doing anything crazy. I am appreciating and loving myself and my body. I didn’t think there was any problem with that.”

Bailey said, “We are human beings and not robots nor mannequins. I am sure all the people saying things wouldn’t want those things said about them, whether it is online or to their face.”

Bailey has a message for the young Black fans.

Bailey says, “To every young black girl, I promise. I have been there, and it is okay to ask for help. The one thing I had to do was find that outlet for me. That was music and God and the beach and prayer and food. Be open; it is okay.”
