This is so not OK. On July 10, My Big Fat Fabulous Life star Whitney Thore took to Instagram to share a horrific act of vandalism with her fans. The words "Fat B---h" were spray-painted in pink alongside a promotional poster of Whitney that hung on her RV. Understandably, the entire incident was extremely traumatic.
"It's not unusual to have people show up at my house and ring my doorbell, or leave gifts on my porch. Even though people are trying to be nice, this has always made me incredibly uncomfortable," the 34-year-old explained.
"People regularly mail things to my parents' home address, show up, and once a woman even walked right in the house and into the living room and began talking to my mom," Whitney continued.
While those instances seem fairly harmless, albeit an invasion of privacy, the TLC personality went on to explain that this most recent act wasn't actually the first time she had to contact the authorities. "About a year ago, the Greensboro Police Department showed up at my doorstep in the middle of the night to do a welfare check, because they’d gotten a call that someone was planning to attack me with a knife that night. After that, I installed an alarm system," Whitney revealed.
Unfortunately, even after taking such drastic safety measures, her property was still violated. "This evening I walked outside to find the RV vandalized. The content isn’t what bothers me — way worse things are sent to me on the internet daily, but this is different; this is at my home, on my property, and it’s terrifying," Whitney said.
Even worse, after contacting the "non-emergency line in Greensboro," Whitney was told that since it wasn’t a "hate crime" or something "gang-related" that she would be contacted at a later time. The I Do It with the Lights On author concluded her post with a word of advice to her followers. "If you know where I live or where a celebrity lives, do not go to their home, even to pay them a compliment. When a stranger is on my property, I do not feel safe."
