Bachelor's Cass Wood posts topless photo to silence online trolls
Cass Wood, 23, became the break-out star from this year's Bachelor in her quest to find love with her dream-diary crush Nick 'Honey Badger' Cummins.
But of course, with fame comes haters - and Cass apparently copped backlash from online trolls about her frequent bikini selfies.
Addressing the hateful comments, Cass wrote this caption underneath a topless photo of herself and two friends holidaying in Thailand:
"It did get to me a little and I felt like I had to think carefully about what I was posting and almost as if I was being controlled and couldn't post what I wanted to.
"Then I thought... what the hell, this is ridiculous, I've literally been brought over to Thailand on a swimwear shoot and everyone has the right to post as they please anyway without explaining themselves to people."
Cass continued with a typically positive anecdote:
"When I look at this photo, I see three girls living in the moment having the time of their lives. We are women supporting each other and I feel so strongly about people supporting one another and not bringing each other down.
"I stand by the motto: 'If you don't have anything nice to say, then don’t say it at all and I am proud of who I am. Thank you for the people that continue to support one another. Kindness and positivity will take you far."
The ultimate sweetie has been confirmed to appear on the upcoming series of Bachelor In Paradise, alongside fellow Bachelor alum Brooke Blurton.
