Some of their photos have been posted online, with some F1 fans with differing viewpoints to Verstappen body-shamed them. With over constant two months of trolling, Piquet now took onto the internet to confront people.
“In a world, there is constant hate thrown around for no reason,” wrote Piquet on her Instagram story. “Which as anyone will know -is bound to take its toll.”
“There are now far too many vicious things circulating that are utterly unacceptable. I’d like to remind people that I am still a human being and have my rights.”
“Circulating rumours, photoshopping images, spreading hate, fabricating completely false stories and messaging friends and family will never be acceptable.”
“Please rethink before you write and engage in this. Everything has repercussions,” concluded Piquet.
