Towards the end, Rose said, she started the petition as she battled anorexia from the age of 12 until she was 24. She was also an influencer with 4,000 followers, with whom she often shared pictures of videos of herself at an “extremely unhealthy weight and with a nasogastric feeding tube in.”
“I influenced a group of people to pursue unhealthy beauty standards. I consider the fact that I had a small audience of only 4000 followers aka 0.20% of Eugenia’s audience and that with my small audience I was still able to affect so many people in such a negative way,” Rose as written.
