It comes after Ireland shared a candid post about being in the “freest mental space” since packing up and leaving Los Angeles for the Oregon coast, where she now lives with her musician boyfriend RAC.
Ireland, inspired by Camila Cabello’s Instagram message last week, wrote a lengthy post detailing everything from her own body image issues to toxic online behavior and mental health.
She said: “Because I’m a bad b**** and I’ve stopped f***ing with people on the internet now, of course I know the heat will never cease to exist. I know that the more I put myself out there, the more people will find reasons to choose me. But it’s ok!!’
She added: “Obviously I’m nowhere near as famous as Camilla, but I understand every word of her post. Ever since I was little, grown adults on the internet have called me some version of fat, ugly, worthless, and irrelevant.”
Ireland has been open about her struggles with eating disorders in the past, saying it’s “sad and pathetic” that people tear others apart online, especially “women doing it to other women”.
“I’ve spent too many years starving, bingeing, purging, measuring, stepping on the scale, spitting food into my purse, and destroying my body because some troll told me I’d never be as skinny and beautiful as my mother. ‘
Cool and Calm: Slipping on a pair of sunnies to match her cousin, she tried to laugh off the aggressive bandages from their mating procedures.
Ireland said that while she has her ‘bad days’, she has a ‘romantic’ love for food and is proud of her figure.
“Sure, I have my insecurities,” she continued. “I know many of you like to assume I’m full of lip fillers, breast implants, and botox, but while there’s absolutely nothing wrong with any of those things, I’m not, but DAMN! All you had to do was ask!”
She noted that she was going to try an “in-office procedure” to see if it would help her insecurities around her chin, and was “shameless” about it.
“And the best part is that I don’t post revealing pictures, healing and crazy to any of you. It’s everything to me,” she said.
Doing her best: Ireland recently shared a candid post about being in the “freest mental space” since packing up and leaving Los Angeles for the Oregon coast, where she now lives with her musician boyfriend RAC.
