In July, she then claimed to be transgender in a post on Instagram, in order to pacify those who were criticizing her for the comments on Facebook.
"I wasn't ready to come out yet but today I got fired and I've been receiving hate mail and death threats ever since so I'm forced to tell everyone the truth," she said on Instagram.
"I'm transgender," she added.
But, that turned out to be false.
She was called out on the bizarre claim, and she later recanted in another Instagram post.
"I apologize for any transphobic remark I've ever made towards the trans community," she said in the post. "I thought if I came out as trans that I could somehow make things better for myself but it appears I've only made things worse."
Then she deleted her Instagram account altogether.
Then she said in an interview with Buzzfeed about the whole mess that she "felt" transgender because she was bullied.
"I definitely feel like a trans person in a way," she said, "in high school I was really bullied."
She explained that she falsely claimed to be transgender because she was receiving death threats.
"Everyone was saying my original comment was transphobic," she explained helpfully, "but you can't expect everyone to know everything about a culture or movement if they never have taken the time to be fully educated on it."
