She casually posed in a pretty white dress, pink shirt, and pastel Superstar shoes. While creating a pretty “girly” image, she also caused quite the stir for showing her hairy legs. A few people have been bullying her since, leaving mean and hurtful comments below Youtube videos and even sending abusive threats directed at her.
“I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like to not possess all these privileges and try to exist in the world. “Sending love and trying to remember that not everybody has the same experiences being a person,” Byström wrote on her Instagram after.
