Teddi Mellencamp clapped back at an Instagram troll on Tuesday after the unnamed follower privately sent her a series of messages in which she was accused of both looking and sounding like a man.
As she shared a screenshot in her stories of the hateful comments that were sent by the troll, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member wrote out a caption to her fans. She told her online audience that while she loves to engage with them, she has no interest in paying any attention to the hurtful things that certain people have been known to send her way.
“You are very Masculine and far from being feminine..!! Even the way you talk is very manly. You should also work on your style because it is obvious that you wear cheappppp clothes..! Learn from the rest of your cast members,” the person wrote in the first of three messages.
Then, in the second comment sent to Teddi, they asked her if she is a man before slamming her as “ugly” and “annoying.”
And they didn’t stop there.
In the third message, the Instagram user went on to say that Teddi’s voice “is so manly.” The reality star and mother-of-three then offered a response to the troll and addressed the rest of her fans on social media.
“When people ask why I don’t respond to DM’s. This is why. I try to do a weekly Q and A and I love engaging with my followers. I have no interest in reading things from trolls who get off on trying to me to engage,” she shared.
While Teddi certainly has a ton of people online who give her nothing but love and support, it seems that this particular commenter got under her skin.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, Teddi filmed the entire 10th season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills while pregnant with her third child, who she welcomed earlier this year with her husband, Edwin Arroyave. Not surprisingly, it wasn’t always easy dealing with the drama of the show.
“You have to just kind of work through it,” she told Us Weekly of filming while pregnant.
According to Teddi, the 10th installment of the Bravo reality series was the “realest” season she’s ever dealt with. She explained that this is because it had so many layers, adding that there were still questions that were left unanswered for her and her castmates.
