Influencer Remi Bader shared her struggles with binge eating but says followers responded with cruel body-shaming comments
  • Influencer Remi Bader has been sharing her experience with binge eating and her health plans.

  • She now says she will longer talk about her health journey online because of the comments.

  • Bader begged viewers to stop commenting on her body in a tearful video.

Remi Bader, a fashion and lifestyle TikTok influencer and Victoria's Secret ambassador, said she has decided to no longer share her health journey online due to negative comments about her body.

Bader, who has 2.3 million TikTok followers, has previously spoken out on the platform about her experience with binge eating. In May last year, she shared that she was receiving outpatient treatment because she felt her binge eating was not improving.

In a more recent video from September 14, she shared that she had faced personal struggles that led her to over-eat, but said she hoped to restart a holistic plan for healthy living.

"Always feel like sharing helps me and helps you so i'll never stop doing that," Bader captioned the post.

Four days later, on September 19, Bader said in a TikTok video that she had changed her mind about sharing her health journey, saying she had received a "ridiculous" amount of body-shaming comments.

She explained that she would no longer be sharing information about her weight, medications, and supplements she takes, or her workout routine on the internet due to the negative comments.

"I don't know why it's even allowed online. Shaming someone and the way they look every single day is so disgusting," she said during the clip.

Bader did not specify whether the negative comments were specifically on TikTok or other platforms. A vast majority of comments on her TikTok account appear to be supportive, as many fans have been flooding Bader's recent posts with positive messages in the hours following her post about receiving online hate. She also did not specify whether she had deleted negative comments.

"It's really hard to see this single every day," Bader said in her TikTok video as she appeared to become tearful, asking viewers to stop commenting on her body.

"You can comment about my character, whatever you think of me as a person, or I'm annoying, or whatever it is, but please just stop commenting on my body because I'm doing everything I can to make myself feel better, and I'm just not going to share any more with you guys. It's just my decision," she said.

"I'm not going anywhere but my personal health journey will no longer be shared with you all. Thanks for understanding," Bader captioned the post.

Bader has previously said on TikTok that body-shaming comments are a "daily" occurrence for her, and she has also called out such comments in the past. Last June, when she complained that a New York cattle ranch did not let her ride a horse due to her weight, she also responded to an employee from the ranch who referred to her as a "fat bitch" in a TikTok post. The ranch apologized for the employee's video in a statement on Facebook at the time.

Representatives for Remi Bader did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
