Supermodel Charlotte McKinney Dropped Out Of School Because Of Bullying
Charlotte McKinney dropped out of high school in Orlando, Florida and moved to Miami to start her modeling career because of “all of the bullying” she received from other girls.
In an interview with Ocean Drive magazine published Friday, McKinney revealed that she struggled with dyslexia and endured a lot of bullying as a student, leading her to her decision to drop out.
“Obviously, I got more attention from the male side than from the female side,” the model said. “A lot of my friends were guys, and I was called a slut by a lot of people. I was just growing these large breasts at such a young age, not really knowing what to do with them or how to wear them. So it was definitely awkward.”
“Girls would yell at me and call me a slut. I would go to parties and get beer thrown on my head–there was so much bullying,” McKinney said.
“It was just so awful, and that’s why now I kind of use my platform to promote anti-bullying. I try to use what I went through to be a voice for it, because it’s still happening and getting even worse now with social media.”
McKinney’s modeling career took off after she appeared in a Carl’s Jr. commercial in which she walked down a street completely naked with two melons covering up the features high school girls used to bully her for.
Now the 23-year-old blonde bombshell is recognized around the world, and her career is just getting started.
McKinney will appear in the spring 2017 campaign for Guess as well as several big movies that are heading to theaters including the highly-anticipated “Baywatch” reboot.
