WWE star Charlotte Flair has expertly hit back at trolls who called her an ugly and a man with an inspirational no-makeup selfie.
The 33-year-old, who is the daughter of the legendary “Nature Boy” Ric Flair, took part in the photo shoot to celebrate Women’s History Month.
She wrote: “I have been told I look like a man. I am ugly. I am fat. I am too muscular. I have no ass. I am only successful because of my last name.
“I look plastic and much more. I am not going to sugarcoat anything. For the first time in 33 years I feel confident, sexy, strong and like a queen in my own skin.
“Yes, I have good days and bad but insecure people have to make excuses to put others down to feel confident. Please don’t allow the opinions of others to devalue your success.
“Confidence isn’t walking into a room thinking you are better than everyone else, it’s walking into a room and not having to compare yourself.
“We are ALL our own superheroes.”
For the first time in 33 years I feel confident, sexy, strong and like a queen in my own skin.
The post gained over 14,000 likes and was flooded with kind messages of support for the eight-time women’s champion.
One replied: “You are beyond beautiful inside and out and you’re loved by many. I’m happy you finally see your own self worth queen.
Another replied: “You’re so beautiful. We’re proud of you.”
A third added: “You’re beautiful Charlotte. I could tell recently you’re more confident in your skin and it’s really beautiful to see.
“I’m glad you’re in this positive state of mind and not allowing the outside world to take away your joy. It inspires me to try to be the same.”
Charlotte took part in the photoshoot for WWE to celebrate Women’s History Month alongside Four Horsewoman stablemate Sasha Banks.
Vince McMahon’s wrestling company also released a sit-down video interview with Rhea Ripley, Bianca Belair, Io Shirai, Dana Brooke, Ruby Riott and Carmella.
The stars of the RAW, SmackDown and NXT women’s division all speak openly about social media, beauty and their insecurities.
