An Instagram model lost 5,000 followers after sharing a more “honest” portrayal of her life.
Stina Sanders, a model based in London, was warned by her agency that posting “ugly” photos – images showing her acne and eczema, or when she is wearing no make up – would prevent her from being able to work.
But that didn’t stop her.
She regularly began posting images from her life that are not typically expected of a glamorous star.
That’s when she noticed that she was losing followers by the day. Eventually, she lost 5,000.
And things got even worse when her modelling agency demanded she removed the pictures.
She told the Telegraph: “‘You need to stop sharing these ugly images,’ they told me.‘You might find it hard to get work if you continue to post images of your acne and eczema.’
Writing a book is hard. I'm on a deadline. I have spots and eczema and I'm sweating because I've had four cups of coffee in the space of an hour. If you can think of a title or anything worth discussing in my book. I'll treat you to dinner. Which will probably be nandos. Which isn't a bad offer. Everyone loves chicken. Unless you're vegetarian. #HelpStinaWriteHerBook #WritersBlock
