Christie Brinkley clap back to the online trolls.
The supermodel showed off her glamorous makeup look and bright blue outfit on Instagram on June 28. However, not everyone was a fan of the 69-year-old’s selfie, prompting her to update her original “Downtown Girl” caption to draw attention to the trolls flooding her feed.
“Hey, Nelly!” Christie wrote. “The wrinkle brigade is in full swing in the comment thread! They’re the people who trawl celebrity sites hoping to find cellulite, wrinkles, or anything else to critique.”
She went on to explain that the people who leave bad messages may be projecting their own insecurities onto them, noting, “It has to be something.” [sic] Some form of compensation for something they lack.”
While Christie addressed the rude comments, she made it clear that they didn’t outweigh the positive feedback she received.
“There are others who come up with such kind and valuable messages,” she continued. “These are the comments that restore my faith and make my heart sing! Thank you, dear souls.”
