This Insta-Famous Model Is Getting Death Threats Over Her Monobrow
A model who has a huge following on Instagram is receiving death threats because of her choice not to tame her bushy eyebrows.
American Sophia Hadjipanteli's thick, dark brows have become her trademark, helping her reach almost 300 thousand followers on the social media platform.
While the 22-year-old has received some support for her bold look there's also been a lot of negative attention as well, as she revealed when she appeared on UK morning show Good Morning Britain on Tuesday.
"I get a lot of death threats funnily enough, I guess it's not that funny," she admitted to hosts Charlotte Hawkins, Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan.
I definitely get a lot of negative reactions, I’m not going to sit here and say a lot of them are positive because that’s obviously not the case. Most are negative.
"It's disgusting but then you think how is it that somewhere somebody has been told that it's so unacceptable to look the way I do that it infuriates them to the point where they have to threaten my life," Hadjipanteli added.
She puts it down to society's single-minded concept of what beauty is -- and isn't.
Hadjipanteli was raised by Cypriot parents in a "very conservative" part of Maryland in the US and admits she struggled with being different but has since embraced her natural self.
She's even nicknamed her distinctive brows 'Veronika' and founded the "#UnibrowMovement" which encourages men and women all over the globe to share snaps of their bold brows.
It looks like Hadjipanteli got the tick of approval from hard-to-please and oft-controversial host Morgan who called her brows "beguiling" and later Tweeted that they look fire.
Others have come out in support of her GMB appearance, telling haters to keep their noses out of her brow business.
Hadjipanteli has previously shared some throwback pics on her Insta that show just how much free reign she's given her eyebrows to grow.
Whether they're bold and bushy or sleek and sculpted, at the end of the day it's her decision on how she wants her brows to look -- end of story.
