While Karlie did not disclose whether she responded, she soon received a string of hateful comments directed at her career choice. Luckily, some fellow TikTokers jumped to her defence and highlighted that people were completely missing the point.
"The men in the comments are soooo dense," one person commented. "They missed the point by miles."
"There's no way y'all are blaming her for this," another added.
The harsh words prompted Karlie to follow up. One TikToker said, "at least we know lack of self-respect runs in the family," to which Karlie responded: "The funny thing is, most of you commenting hate apparently checked out my page." She accompanied her response with a screengrab of a message that said her page had been viewed over a million times.
Another bitter critic wrote: "You chose the life, so it's bound to happen sooner or later."
Karlie shunned his comments and said: "We're all adults here – well, you should be if you're on my page,
"Why are men so mad about the industry when you guys created it?
"You literally watch it every night, yet you're mad at the people making it?
"I genuinely don't understand," she concluded.
