‘Hey guys, I have been wondering since forever why people leave hateful comments?’ she wrote on one of the clips. ‘Why? What is the benefit? Just in general, I want to understand the train of thoughts. Because I don’t get it. It’s just so rude and sad for those commenting.’

The mother-of-one also advised social media users not to follow certain individuals if they don’t want to see their content.

‘So just be nice and kind. Try,’ she added.
