Kelly Monaco Instagram drama: General Hospital actress claps back at trolls

US soap star Kelly Monaco took to Instagram to address the latest social media drama in her life: Instagram trolls.

In a picture posted yesterday the actress took the time to address the mean comments she receives, by asking bullies to stay away and using the hashtag #nohate.

Although the first part of the caption remained and is still available to see, Monaco reportedly followed up with a now-deleted segment, writing to “those who have heart in their heart, to comment and say such negative [bleep] on my page.”

“Try…I know it’s hard…but try to look into my eyes and not critique or criticise my physical appearance. Look into my eyes and tell me what you see? I know… I’m sure it’s not an easy concept.”

“I have feelings, heart and a soul, most look past that!” She goes on. “Do you see joy, pain, happiness, loneliness, love…check yourself before you judge others. I am 44 years old. I feel like I am reading comments from a 15-year-old kid.”

“To those of you who find it funny or fun to get a kick out of making somebody feel like [bleep]…grow the [bleep] up. You know who you are. I’m praying for you This is why I don’t share on social media.”

What was Kelly Monaco’s Instagram drama all about?

Although Monaco never explicitly mentioned what or who exactly she was referring to, it is likely that it was comments on previous photos which ignited the clap back.

A quick scroll down the comments section is enough to find countless fan remarks about the actress’s alleged use of lip fillers.

“Tooooo many lip injections…doesn’t fit your face. Why???” commented one follower.

Another follower commented, “Take it easy on the lip injections. You can’t even see you have top teeth when you talk onset.”

How did Kelly Monaco’s fans react to the Instagram drama?

Monaco turned off the comments on the picture in question and then uploaded an image of two naked women diving off a boat, although it’s unclear if either are herself.

She captioned the image: “Let’s take the attention away from my face.”

Monaco’s fans took the opportunity to praise her in the comments of this picture instead, writing: ”Screw all the haters! You are gorgeous- that simple.”

Another fan commented: “Please don’t give the trolls any more attention. You’re beautiful and unfortunately some people can’t help but be cruel to others.”
