A fitness influencer with over 250,000 followers on Instagram has made a public apology after realising some of her previous posts encouraged a dangerous attitude towards food and exercise.
Georgie Stevenson, who has been sharing her fitness journey on the social media platform for seven years, revealed it was an email from a follower left her in tears which prompted the apology.
The email she received was from a woman who admitted she used to follow Georgie thinking she was “body goals”.
“I wasn’t in a great mind space at the time so I unfollowed you for a little while,” the message, which Georgie shared in her post, read.
“But then I found you again about a year ago and you had completely changed and grown so much!”
The honest post has had almost 12k likes and hundreds of grateful and supportive comments.
Some include posts promoting ‘Skinny tea’ products, and talking about exercising to work off the “food from last night”
