When Spiranac spoke about cyberbullying
The influencer has always been a vocal critic of online bullying. Spiranac reportedly once spoke about how she deals with haters.
She said, “I’ve always been the one to answer [to trolls], always quickly addresses the person immediately and head-on. Sometimes it worked out for the better and eventually, despite the initial meanness, developed into friendship. But now I don’t recommend it; I was more naive when I first spoke out against cyberbullying.”

She added: “The best thing you can do is ignore trolls, block them or report them. If you say something, always be 100 percent polite because what you say will stay forever.”
“Even if you delete a comment, it can always be found. So I always ask my fans and followers: “What do you want to be?” What you post could still be relevant 50 years from now, so think about what kind of person you want to portray,” she said.
