Many people have trolled Valerie Bertinelli on the internet. Recently, she has shared a video to give a powerful response to her followers who had commented on her weight.
She said that it was a ‘mistake’ that she decided to read comments, where people have suggested her to ‘lose weight.’
In the video, she said, “If I could lose the weight and keep it off I would, but since I haven't been successful with that my whole entire life, at 61, I'm still dealing with it.”
She said sarcastically, “Because see, I don’t have a scale or I don’t have clothes that I’m trying to put on every day, and I don’t have mirrors so I don’t see what’s become of me. So I needed that help to let me know that I need to lose weight.”
She continued, “You’re not being helpful because when you see somebody who has put some weight on, my first thought is, that person is obviously going through some things.”

She has also written a caption related to the post and has asked, “Aren’t we tired of body shaming women yet?!”
The caption read, “I was going to delete my stories because it’s a little embarrassing and scary to be so vulnerable. But then I realized it was hitting a ‘good’ nerve with so many of you who were so sweet to dm and share your same vulnerability and struggles. We all could use a little more kindness and patience and grace because we just never know what someone else is going through.
So here it is. Not deleting. Owning it.”
Her son, Wolfgang Van Halen commented on the post and said, “You are perfect the way you are, Ma I love you!”
Haylie Duff and one of her followers praised her and called her inspiration for all. Haylie Duff wrote, “You are gorgeous and glorious! An inspiration to women everywhere blocks that hater.” And the follower said, “This video is everything. Beautiful Valerie, you inspire, you encourage, and you make people feel like everything is good and right. You have done this your whole life. You win!”
