Paige Spiranac has detailed the horrific body-shaming she received after throwing a ceremonial first pitch at Yankees vs Brewers game in Milwaukee in September.
The 29-year-old former professional golfer appeared before the MLB clash but was shocked to receive a horrendous backlash of hate online which viciously attacked her appearance.
The social media sensation and golf instructor, who was named as the Sexiest Woman Alive in Maxim's 2022 Hot 100 list, uploaded the candid video to her 302 thousand YouTube subscribers.

Speaking on her official channel, Spiranac said: "Not just body [shamed], but my appearance too, like my face and everything. In Milwaukee people were like, 'she’s gained weight, this is what she looks like with no filters.' It was insane.
"But, here's the thing. When I shoot, I obviously pick the best pictures. I have great lighting. There's a lot that goes into getting a nice picture.
"And so when you’re at a stadium that has severe overhead lighting, fluorescent overhead lighting, you’re just not going to look your best.
"And so I have just felt this immense pressure to look perfect, all the time. And that is humanly impossible. It is seriously so difficult to do that.
"No one can do that. Even the most beautiful women in the world don’t always look a certain way."
Spiranac has received an outpouring of support following the abuse having grown a loyal Instagram following of 3.6 million since her first post in February of 2015.
Spiranac has spoken out a month after revealing the extent of the horrific online comments she received and explained the influence they can have on both men and women.
She said: "I think this is a real issue because it’s a huge topic among women about having body issues, and being body shamed and having body insecurities.
"When I reached out to a lot of guys and they were sharing their stories, they also have the same type of issues and they struggle as well."
