Harnaaz has now responded to the cruel comments, revealing that she suffers from coeliac disease.

She explained: “I’m one of those individuals who was first bullied that ‘she’s too skinny’ and now they bully me saying ‘she’s fat’.

“Nobody knows about my coeliac disease. That I can’t eat wheat flour and many other things.”

Harnaaz Sandhu went on to say that a person’s body experiences a lot of changes when they are constantly living in different places.

“When you go to a village, you see changes in your body. And I went to New York for the very first time. It is a whole other world altogether.”

Harnaaz stated that she does not pay attention to the trolls, adding that she finds herself beautiful no matter what.

“I’m someone who believes in body positivity and one of the Miss Universes for the very first time is going through that.

“On the platform of Miss Universe, we talk about women empowerment, womanhood, and body positivity.

“And if I am going through that… I know there are a lot of people who are trolling me and it’s okay because that’s their mindset, their stigmas, but there are a lot of other individuals who are trolled every day irrespective of their Miss Universe or not.

“I’m empowering them by making them feel that if I feel gorgeous, you are beautiful too.”

“For me everyone is beautiful. It’s about how you represent yourself and what kind of ideology you have. Your features do not matter at one moment.

“If you think that I’m the most beautiful girl that’s why I won Miss Universe, I’m sorry, you’re wrong.

“I might not be the most beautiful (girl) but I might be one of the courageous and confident girls who believes even if I’m fat, even if I’m thin, it’s my body, I love myself.

“I love the changes and you should appreciate it because not everyone can go through the changes.

“So be happy if you’re going through changes. If you are facing challenges in life, you should be thankful because that means something good is going to happen.”
