Dhakota Williams has been praised for sharing her “real” body in an itsy bitsy bikini after opening up about copping vile abuse from strangers online.
The 21-year-old daughter of slain crime kingpin Carl Williams revealed she’d been “fat shamed” constantly in the 12 years since her dad’s death.
The criticism of her body started when she was just 10 years old.
However, the adult content creator has just proved she’s not going to let the trolls tear her down, sharing a series of snaps in a black micro bikini – and her fans are loving it.
Many have commented on the images praising the young woman for setting a good example and showing what a “real” body looks like.
“Thank you for keeping it real,” one user wrote.
“Yas, a real woman’s body on Instagram,” another said.
In the three snaps shared, the Melbourne-based woman can be seen posing in an urban backyard in the two-piece cossie.
Her dark hair is wet and slicked back as she tilts her head to bask in the summer sun.
Many of Dhakota’s almost 44,000 followers said she looked “absolutely gorgeous” in the string bikini.
“Far out,” one wrote, as another said: “You are sizzling.”
“Simply super stunning as always,” someone else added.
As one declared: “OMG so beautiful.”
The positive feedback comes after Dhakota opened up about her secret battle with online trolls.
“I’ve never once addressed fat shaming because I cbf [can’t be f***ed] even giving it the energy,” she wrote on an Instagram Stories at the time. “But these people online have been calling me fat since I was about nine years old and I’m fed up.”
Dhakota went on to ask followers to “imagine” what that would have been like for a young child – adding the comments would often leave her “crying”.
“That’s 12 years of me having to see people comment on my body,” she continued.
“It’s such a shame that I’ve had to learn not to give a f**k instead of people having to learn to be nice.
“This is a child we’re talking about, teaching herself not to [care] because of nasty people, not these grown adults teaching themselves to be decent humans.”
Alongside her lengthy post was a screenshot of a “nasty” comment, left on a photo of Dhakota posted before her birthday in March, wearing an orange cut-out dress.
Dhakota regularly shares snippets of her life in Melbourne, including glamorous nights out and racy selfies on social media.
She has grown up in the public eye after her gangland father was murdered when she was just 10-years-old.
Williams was serving a 35-year sentence for the murder of three men when he was beaten to death with the stem of an exercise bike by another inmate.
His death came shortly after he agreed to provide information to police in exchange for concessions from the authorities.
Williams helped police by providing valuable intelligence and leads relating to a number of unsolved murder cases.
Prior to his imprisonment, he was a key figure in Melbourne’s gangland war, which resulted in the deaths of 36 criminal figures between 1998 and 2010.
