In a TikTok video, Miel described the netizen’s comment as very unnecessary, unwarranted, and offensive.
According to Miel, people should avoid giving unsolicited advice and comments on the weight and diet of public figures and other people on the internet. She explained that she can discuss these matters with her family members and friends and not with strangers online.
“This comment was very unnecessary and unwarranted… it’s pretty offensive.
“The thing is, right, I don’t know you, you don’t know me.
“And no matter how much of my content you consume, it does not give you the right, or the knowledge of what’s actually going on with my life for you to make this kind of comment, unless you were my parent, my sibling, or any kind of close friend.
“You do not make that kind of message for somebody on the Internet.”
“And I just want to get this out there 'coz there’s so many comments from people being worried about me, worried about my health, and it feels condescending and I’m very, very tired of it, I’m sorry…

“The thing is, I don’t need this kind of concern from you because I have my own parents, and my own siblings, and my own nutritionist properly looking out for me and my health.”
“Just because I am online, just because I make content online, it does not give you the right to overstep your boundaries and stick your nose in other people’s business,” Miel said.
Furthermore, Miel shared that she is still in the process of recovering from a past eating disorder and body-image issues.
“One of the things I’ve been trying to relearn is the fact that I have to stop eliminating important nutrients from my diet.
“Part of my eating disorder was a very obsessive focus on carbs and avoiding it, which caused me to lose a lot of nutrition…
“And I’m just sharing this so I hope you understand why comment like this really do affect me,” Miel revealed.
