SmackDown Superstar Carmella has hit back at the “hate and threats” that she has received on social media, describing the comments as “disturbing.”
Writing on Twitter and Instagram, the former SmackDown Women’s Champion said that it can be difficult to ignore negative comments, adding “y’all can be so cruel.”
Carmella’s comments were posted alongside a no-makeup non-filtered selfie with the star explaining that she wants to be more real with her fans.
“It’s been a while since I’ve posted a no makeup, non-filtered selfie. Do I love getting dressed up and having my hair and makeup done? Yes! But a majority of my time is spent in sweats with no makeup on my face and my hair in a bun.. that’s MY reality most of the time. So I need to do better with being real with you all on here. To be completely honest, being on Instagram and Twitter recently has been hard. The hate and the threats are at an all time high, it’s quite disturbing actually. I usually just try to post and leave it alone, but it’s hard to NOT read the negativity sometimes. Y’all can be so cruel. Luckily, I know who I am. I’m not going to let you get to me. I just wanted to post this as a friendly reminder not to believe everything you read and see on the internet. Do you, for you.”

On the most recent episode of SmackDown Carmella defeated Liv Morgan to progress in the first ever Queen’s Crown tournament. In the other first round match on the show Zelina Vega overcame Toni Storm. However, it has since been reported that there is “significant frustration” backstage with how the women’s division is being booked.
