Paige VanZant has never been shy about showing off her body, but she simply cannot ignore the trolls saying things about her.
VanZant has gone public with being fat-shamed on YouTube by trolls, but she is looking to turn a negative into a positive.
The former UFC star took to Instagram, where she noted that she has gained “probably 20+ pounds” and been bullied online because of it. However, she realized that they actually helped her and vowed to continue the “real” her on social media.
“I have been really good at putting my best self forward. Making sure the world sees the ‘prettiest’ side of me,” VanZant wrote. “Where I fell short is that I never showed the true me. Until now.
“The truth is, yes, I have gained a lot of weight…. probably 20+ pounds but I also gained strength, power, muscle, and a f–k ton of happiness. I see every single comment on my YouTube channel about how I look pregnant, obese, fat as f–k, and won’t be able to fit through a door soon. But one thing I have always remembered. Happy people ain’t haters and haters ain’t happy. So all you haters out there keep on commenting, you’re only growing my platform.
“And I promise from this day forward to show the real me, forever. The fat me, the broken me, the skinny me, and the happiest f—–g version of me I have ever been. Social media will never be real but I’ll try and be better. Anyway, check out my YouTube channel. Because I’ll be damned if I don’t continue to profit off of THE BEST HATERS IN THE WORLD. Yours in thickness.”
One of the mainstream talents hired by AEW was Paige VanZant. She made her first AEW appearance in September 2021.
The final appearance of Paige VanZant for AEW came in May 2022 and she has been solely focused on her fanbase on OnlyFans. After all, this is the career choice that she had opted for instead of continuing in the professional wrestling industry.
VanZant has so far been 0-2 in her bare-knuckle boxing stint. The 28-year-old has struggled for success in her new sport, falling to defeats against Britain Hart and former UFC opponent Rachael Ostovich in 2021.
Her scheduled bout for BKFC 27 in London fell through, and when she was scheduled to compete again, it was announced she suffered a broken foot.
Now, VanZant currently sits without a fight booked and without an appearance in the BKFC ring for 21 months. Her fighting career is likely over.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
