After becoming the curviest model to grace Sports Illustrated Swimsuit in 2017, Hunter McGrady has worked hard to maintain her place in the spotlight.

In January, she excitedly announced that she was returning to Sports Illustrated as an official rookie, making it known that she (and her size-16 body) wasn't going anywhere

Unfortunately, body shamers weren't exactly thrilled to see a confident plus-size woman succeed in the modeling industry. They decided to make it their mission to tear McGrady down — but she wasn't having it. 

On Monday, McGrady took to Instagram to finally address her haters.

In an Instagram story, McGrady teased a recent interview she did with Upworthy. She encouraged her fans to check out the clip.

But whenever McGrady returned to Upworthy's original post, she was horrified to discover a slew of body-shaming comments.

She uploaded a screenshot of the comments onto her own Instagram.

"The kind of world we live in," she wrote, circling the negative comments.

McGrady expressed her disgust at the "sad" and "pathetic" commentary.

Trolls even came for her eyebrows. C'mon. 

But rather than let the rude words get to her, McGrady reminded her haters that she's living her best life.

Whether they like it or not!

She refuses to hide her face...

"I'll be over here with my eyebrows," McGrady cheekily announced.

...or that beautiful body.

"And my body," she added.

McGrady noted that she normally doesn't respond to trolls, but that doesn't mean she's OK with their hateful words.

"I get nasty comments every single day," she wrote. "I just don't share them publicly because I don't normally ever look. But I will say this, there are children starving in the world, there are people who are afraid to go to school for fear it might be shot up, racism is alive to this day, the wage gap is a very serious problem, we have people who are hurting themselves because they don't feel good enough. And you, you are focusing on appearances and the way my eyebrows look or how my body is bigger. I don't feel bad for me. I pray for you. To understand that you are the very problem this world is trying to rectify."

She ended her clap back with a message of hope.

"I'll continue to do what I do and love you and pray for you from afar," McGrady concluded. "I pray for a change of heart and compassion towards one another. I pray that my children live in a world where they can fully be themselves without fear of being bullied."

She added, "LOVE WINS. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME."
