Ireland Baldwin, daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin, is aware of negative comments about her body on the internet — and she is not pleased with all the chatter about her looks.
Over on Tumblr, Ireland Baldwin posted a lengthy rant about criticism she has received about her figure, saying that she is saddened to see people react so harshly to a teenage girl’s looks overall.
Baldwin began her rant saying:
“Of course I get those comments about how I am too fat to model, how I am not model material, how I am an unattractive girl, how I am too tall, etc. I understand. I don’t look as glamorous as Rosie Huntington Whitely when leaving the gym. I’m actually really sweaty. Like really sweaty.”
The teen continues:
“I understand that I am not a size.008. What I don’t fully understand, is what is the good in commenting on a photo of a 17 year old girl and calling her fat, ugly, etc? Is that helping you in some way?”
Baldwin, like her famous mom, is a model. The teen is signed with IMG, and says of the criticism of her looks:
“Putting [unkind remarks] out there is hateful and unhealthy. If you don’t have a complimentary thing to say about someone, keep it to yourself. I am not just talking about comments on photos of myself. I see hateful comments everywhere. It’s bad energy being put out there! Personally, I try to see the beauty in everyone.”
“It’s there. Every girl out there has a beautiful feature. I even see the beauty in the people who send me hateful replies!”
