Krechelle Carter shared abusive private messages in a public stand against online bullying.
The Australian blogger, who is known as Eight at Home to her fans, took to Instagram to share screenshots of the mum-shaming messages she’d received from another user.
‘You have absolutely no credibility,’ wrote the troll. ‘Also your vag must be a train wreck. The quality of life your kids are going to have into the future is gonna be just terrible.’
He then took aim at Krechelle’s weight, adding, ‘You’re also chronically obese; Jesus man you hit the trifecta in life.’
The taunts continued with the troll writing, ‘Feral. I feel so bad for the children I hope you at least adopt one out in the hopes that it at least gets a good life.’
But Krechelle, who is currently recovering from surgery, had the perfect response. And she decided it was important to make it public.
She wrote, ‘I’m not sharing this for sympathy. I share this because there are people that need to see it’s happening everywhere. It’s not just you. You are not alone.’
First, she addressed the troll’s description of her ‘train wreck’ vagina, writing, ‘My vagina is perfectly intact btw because c-sections (even if I had of had them out my hooo hah it would be even more the beautifuler for it)’.
‘Secondly, my children are perfectly fine,’ she assured him. ‘We eat broccoli and have craft supplies and we let them run around enough.’
Jokingly, she added, ‘We free range parent – except for when we lock them up at night (gotta rest at some point) and don’t want the foxes to get them. My kids – they are the best thing I ever did with my life. They are loved and special.’
Finally, she tackled the troll’s malicious comments about her weight.
‘Thirdly, as for my obesity. Yep it’s true I’m obese,’ she admitted, before declaring that she had indeed ‘hit the trifecta’ with ‘a gorgeous adoring husband, beautiful, healthy children and family & friends that spread for miles’.

Krechelle’s followers were quick to leap to her defence. ‘Wow! Why are people so cruel?!’ asked one.
‘Why would someone go out of their way to write something so negative to someone. Just remember it says more about them than it does about you.’
‘Well said beautiful. You are so amazing and strong,’ another added.
