Veronika Rajek, 26, from Slovakia and who lives between Vienna, Austria, and the US says her toned body has made her a victim of cancel culture as 'jealous' trolls constantly 'body-shame' the model for her good looks.
The influencer, who has two million followers on Instagram @veronikarajek, insists that she uses her platform to spread body positivity but people assume she is 'privileged' and constantly try to 'take her down'.
'My body is considered a danger on social media and I am constantly being cancelled by trolls for doing absolutely nothing but sharing photos of my body,' Veronika said.
Believe it or not, I can level with Veronika Rajek here. Both of our bodies appear to be too dangerous for social media and it really is a shame. Allow me to explain.
I've lived with it my whole life. Get one look of me without my hat off and you'll have an entire town of people running for the hills, grabbing pitchforks and fire, ready to set me ablaze. You'll have a group of scientists wondering how it's possible someone could look that way and still decide to venture out into public or even dare share pictures of themselves on social media. Thankfully no one has to see my feet because I have this bizarre gap between my big toe and the toe next to it. Do they call that the index toe? It's nothing modern science can explain. Also, after years of having a near perfect metabolism I'm gaining weight at a rapid, alarming pace. I expect to look like Adam Sandler towards the end of Click in no time. Quick aside, that movie has no business being as sad as it is.
Anytime I build up the courage to post a picture on social media I understand the dangers that follow with that task. Seems Veronika deals with the same kind of plight, but just from a different angle. I feel for her, but I also wonder if there's actual people out there mad at her or if it's just rival models who are using burners to flood her comments and DMs. Either way, I bid her good luck with her journey the rest of the way.
