Sadie Robertson Bullied? ‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Recalls Poor Treatment During Fashion Week

Sadie Robertson is speaking out about a bad experience that she had at Fashion Week back in 2013. According to Radar Online, the Duck Dynasty star wrote about said experience in her new book, “Live Original.” Sadie said that she was treated poorly by the models that she met in New York, and that they made her feel excluded and unwelcome. She would say hello to them, and they’d pretty much ignore her.

“Many of them did not say a single word back to me. They just looked at me like they had icicles in their eyes. Without using words, they sent me a strong message, “What are you doing here?” Sadie said.

Sadie Robertson was involved in Fashion Week last year because she debuted a line of prom dresses — ones that her dad Willie Robertson found appropriate of course! The 17-year-old reality star seems to be making quite a name for herself, and got a pretty big break on Dancing With The Stars. She is likely speaking out about bullying and feeling excluded because a lot of people can relate. While Sadie seems very likable, it doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone she meets has to like her.

Not letting the meanness of others get her down, Sadie said that she used her faith to get her through.

“I could have totally lost it over the comments people made and the icy looks they gave me. But I didn’t. God had been training me all my life…to be strong and confident,” Sadie wrote.

According to TV Guide, Sadie Robertson says that she’s ready to step outside of her family’s shadow.

“For my whole life I’ve kind of been shadowing what my family says. They’ll say something about my faith and I agree. But now, it’s time for me to say, ‘This is who I am as well.’ I’m not hiding behind my family anymore. I’m sharing my faith by myself, which has helped me to be more bold and more confident saying things. It’s the same God; it’s the same faith. It’s just my opportunity to share it in my words. And I have enjoyed it. It’s been good for me and I’ve grown a lot form it.”

According to the Inquisitr, Sadie was previously accused of being a “brat” on Dancing With The Stars. Even fans of the show think that the teen seems a bit “stuck up.” Do you think so?
