Influencer and model Lindsay Pelas has spoken out about the negative energy she faces on social media.
The American star has had her fair share of admirers, in fact, she boasts a massive 8.6m followers on Instagram.
And with the amount of fans in her life, it's fairly understandable to be exposed to bad vibes online.

She's always been used to men's bad behaviour, but now the 31-year-old claims she's been targeted since she was a teenager.
At the age of 18, Lindsay worked at Hooters in Louisiana, US, where she dealt with a lot of abuse from customers.
She revealed how people would often take snaps of her and slate her on social media.
Lindsay told Sun Fabulous: "I would just be repeatedly abused. I was told I needed plastic surgery, that I'd had plastic surgery.
"I was told every contradiction under the sun just to abuse me."
Now a decade later, Lindsay still faces horrid comments but she's developed thick skin to deal with the hate.
She's experienced "cruel haters, abuse, scary people, people praying for my demise".

The model admitted: "The majority of the abusive content is from men. Women really do not actively seek to harm me as much."
On one occasion, she received "disturbing messages" from a man from a well-known company.
She explained: "And one day I'd had enough. I looked up his LinkedIn and posted those messages to his workplace.
"I truly feared he worked with women and I couldn't imagine someone who was so obsessed with violence toward women working with and controlling the pay checks of women.
"I went ahead and told his boss… they responded publicly and said they would look into it. He had to have been fired."
And Lindsay admitted she'd take similar action from men who work in schools or around children.
But she finds it odd that these men don't have an issue if they're making money off of women's looks.
"They're offended when a woman makes the money and doesn’t have to pay a man through it. It's such an obsolete idea," she said.
The model stresses there should be nothing wrong with a woman making money off her looks though.
