The internet can be a nasty place because of the anonymity it offers. Trolls become super comfortable hiding behind their computer screens and criticizing others. These trolls are quick to hurl hurtful and mean-spirited comments at strangers without thought.
Dealing with these comments can be difficult but some people, like Jess Walsh, aren’t afraid to clap back.
Walsh is a 24-year-old TikTok influencer who has been sharing her weight loss journey on the platform. The influencer started her journey at around 420lbs, and has since dropped over 150lbs. Losing significant weight can sometimes cause skin to become a little looser, and that’s the case for Walsh.
While this is a normal part of weight loss, people have been leaving awful comments on Walsh’s videos. Fortunately, she has a good attitude about the situation. Walsh tackles her troll with wit and a great sense of humor.
In a recent video, one person told her that she was pretty but needed to get rid of the stomach fat.
Walsh responded the comment by lifting her shirt, cradling her stomach, and saying: “This thing? Tummathy? My baby? No, never!”
She also went viral for another video, where she gave her stomach hilarious googly eyes.
Despite the comments from trolls, Walsh continues to document her journey. She said she still has another 110lbs to lose. Walsh uses her platform to encourage others, particularly those who struggle with binge-eating.
Walsh also regularly shares weight loss tips and has been inspiring others along the way.
“In all forms, I am worthy and others deserve to feel the same way,” she writes.
Walsh’s vides also recieves tons of support and love from followers.
“It’s not fat, it’s excess skin. It’s something to be proud of because it’s showing her weight loss journey,” one user commented in her defense.
But love her or hate her, Walsh has made it clear that this journey is a personal one.
