Woman Claims She’s Bullied By Other Women Who Are Jealous Because She’s ‘Too Pretty’ To Be Real

A Slovakian model has claimed that she’s regularly subject to abuse and trolling from other women who are “jealous” of how attractive she is and believe that she’s “too pretty” to be real. Veronica Rajek, 25, said that her life is especially hard because of her beauty and claims that she’s regularly discriminated against based on her appearance alone.

  1. People don’t believe Rajek is real. While she boasts more than 1.1 million Instagram followers, Rajek said that her profile is always being reported as fake because no one can believe she’s actually that pretty. “People don’t even believe I exist,” she said, as per the Mirror. “It’s pretty discriminatory that other women can do the same thing as me and I can’t, and I just get deleted because of my looks. I call myself an alien as people don’t believe I’m real.”
  2. People assume she’s a catfish when she’s just being herself. It’s not just annoying for Rejak, it’s painful as she’s only being her naturally beautiful self and people don’t think she’s real. “They think I’m an AI robot or a catfish online. People say beautiful people have it easy but I have it worse as people make it harder for me because I’m beautiful,” she explained.
  3. Women are the worst for abuse, Rejak says. She claimed she’s regularly bombarded with private messages and public comments from other women who body shame her and accuse her of using filters to disguise her real appearance. “I get messages from men who don’t think I’m real but the worst messages on my Instagram are from women asking me why I’m pretending and asking for proof,” she said. “I don’t make any adjustments, shaping or filters – I use a skin smoothing tool but I think that’s normal.”
  4. Why are women so harsh? According to Rejak, it’s because they’re jealous of her and worry that she might be after their partners, despite the fact that these women likely live thousands of miles away from her and will never meet her in person. “Skinny girls are body shaming plus-sized models but I’m being body shamed too as they don’t think I’m natural,” Rejak said. “I get more abuse from women as they are jealous and they think I want their boyfriend.”
  5. Rejak believes her good looks have kept her from having any friends. I suppose they’re jealous of her too? Either way, she’s happy with her appearance. “I don’t have many friends but I feel good,” she insisted. “If you feel beautiful the way you are, then you are beautiful. If you feel confident in your body and you are plus-sized, then just be confident. If you have had plastic surgery, just be honest. If you take care of yourself, you can be beautiful too. Naturality is still here in this world.”
