The daughter of late actor Luke Perry has been the target of trolls and now she is fighting back. Sophia Perry hasn’t asked for the attention that she has been getting ever since her dad passed away and she made this very clear.
Earlier today, the 18-year-old took to social media to slam the haters who have been criticizing both her way of grieving and her outer appearance!
As you can imagine, she definitely does not need that kind of negativity through her time of mourning!
Luke Perry lost his life on March 4 at the age of only 52, after suffering a serious stroke days earlier.
His teenage daughters started her post by thanking all those who have sent her condolences but went on to discuss the hate she has also been receiving.
‘I’m here to say that I didn’t ask for this attention, I didn’t ask to be thrown into the spotlight, and while I do not mean to offend anybody, I am also not going to cater to anyone else’s needs and beliefs. I am 18. I swear like a sailor and I sometimes dress like a hooker. And I support causes that you may not. And most importantly. I’m going to laugh and smile and live my normal life.’
Sophie went on to make it very clear that they have no idea how she feels inside.
She may look a certain way on the outside but feel completely different.

Since my dad died I have received a lot of attention online. And most of it has been positive but of course, some people just can’t be nice. And I’m here to say that I did not ask for this attention, I did not ask to be thrown into some virtual spotlight, and while I don’t mean to offend anybody, I’m also not going to cater to any one else’s needs and beliefs. I’m 18. I swear like a sailor and sometimes I dress like a hooker. And I support causes and you may not. And most importantly. I am going to laugh and smile and live my normal life. YES I am hurt and sad and crying and beside myself with what happened to my dad. It’s the worst thing to ever happen in my life. And I am torn the fuck up over it. But I’m not going to sit in my room and cry day in and day out until the internet has deemed it appropriate for me to do otherwise. And if you knew my dad you would know he wouldnt want me to. So you shouldn’t either. So to those of you shaming me for my language and my wardrobe and most disgustingly, my grieving process, do us both the favor and just unfollow. It’s a waste of both of our time.

While she is definitely ‘torn’ about her dad’s shocking death, she is ‘not going to just sit in my room and cry day in and day out until the internet’s deemed it appropriate for me to do otherwise.’
