‘Just when you think online abuse and trolling can’t get any worse. Almost 1million people commit suicide in the world every year,’ Jelena captioned one grab.
‘That’s scary and so sad and then people like this disgusting person and a few others out there make fun of it!? How disgusting. They should ashamed of themselves.’
Jelena has been open about her struggles with her mental health and admitted she has had suicidal thoughts in the past.
In another post, Jelena shared some of the mean comments she had received about her weight saying they were coming from people all over the world especially her home country Serbia.
One troll called Jelena ‘whale-like’ while another jabbed she needs to ‘cut back on the snacks’.

Jelena hit back at the ‘evil’ trolls saying, while distressing, the mean comments motivate and inspire her to continue standing up for herself and fighting back.
‘The most common comment being ‘what happened to her, she is so big’? I will tell you what happened, I am finding a way and surviving and fighting,’ she wrote.
‘It really doesn’t matter what I am doing and what happened because size ‘shouldn’t matter. Kindness and being a good person matters which those of you that abuse me and others are clearly not.’
Despite the vitriol, many jumped to her defence and offered Jelena kind words of support.
‘For all those out there supporting me and there are so many of you, THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART,’ Jelena said.
‘And to all of those out there that are genuinely good people, THANK YOU.’
