The Grown-ish alum noted that dealing with internet bullies has a taken a major toll on her mental health.
“Now I’m being bullied as I am and its messing with me mentally,” Francia admitted. “To me it’s not what anyone wants for someone and she’s literally out there saying please stop, so I don’t understand why it’s not stopping.”
As she put it, “Not just for me but for others who are also being antagonized online.”
However, Francia is blocking out the noise.
“I’m doing my best to not listen, to not read,” she continued. “I’m very happy and I’m living my life. I’m sending love to everyone. I understand because I’ve been a hardcore fan of people myself growing up, I totally, totally, totally get it but its not nice and I would say—not just with me but with anyone—please stop.”
Francia’s reflection on her experience with internet bullies comes days after she dodged questions about the status of her friendship with the “Wolves” artist—including whether or not she would ever follow Selena back on Instagram.
