Responding to the cruel message, the Dubliner said: “Anorexia and anorexia nervosa are both very serious and sensitive medical conditions that I absolutely do not have.

“My healthy baby is thriving and weighing/measuring exactly as she should. I eat a very healthy balanced diet and I am also not vegan. I don’t restrict my diet at all.

“I am aware Mandy, that my health/what I eat and the wellbeing of my baby is absolutely none of your business and don’t deserve a response, however I’m responding as I think you may need to speak to a professional or potentially seek help for your behaviour.

“Commenting such awful things and trying to troll a very happy and healthy pregnant woman is very very worrying! Hope you feel better/happier soon. All the best!”

Terrie then added: “If you find yourself trolling a pregnant person for how they look... I’d seriously advise seeking help. This is not normal behaviour.”

The influencer revealed that she also received a series of “disgusting messages” from another user.

Sharing a screenshot of her DMs, she said: “I absolutely hate rising to messages like this (I receive quite a lot that I never share publicly).

“But I want to highlight that you just never ever know what someone is going through and writing poisonous words like this has such potential to do so much harm.

“I am grateful to be completely unbothered by words strangers write about me or send to me. I am very happy in my life and have an incredible support system but this could be a completely [different] situation.

“Pregnancy is an incredibly vulnerable time and I could have been in a very different head space reading those words.”

She continued: “Social media and the internet in general has come along so much in the past two years with regards to trolling/online bullying. Everything can be traced back to you.

“Life is far too short to be feeding or breeding negativity like this. It’s 2021 [and] it really is time to grow up and put this kind of behaviour behind us! Let’s just be feckin' kinder to each other.”
