Alaskan Bush People star Rain Brown has slammed online trolls in a string of heartfelt messages, as she continues to struggle with her mom Ami’s cancer battle.

We told last week how Rain revealed she had shed tears while reading a story about Ami’s fight against the disease, but was trying to remain positive despite her family’s ordeal.

Now she has blasted haters who have been trolling her and some of her fans online, saying the best response is just to “throw love their way”.

Rain also said that although she often posts selfies on her social media of herself smiling, inside she is finding it difficult to come to terms with her mom’s illness.

She said: “Ever hear the quote the hearts that are broken the most are hid by the biggest smiles? Yep! It’s true!”

Rain’s comments came in a string of posts on her Instagram profile. In one emotional message, she said she puts up updates on her social media for her fans not for haters.

And she told trolls: “Trying to hurt people that are going through so much pain doesn’t make you any smarter, prettier or better.”

I just wanted to say a couple things, one I never said that I don't know what people magazine is I lived in Alaska not in a hole, two i post things for the people that love me and that love my family I don't do it for haters that judge me, three I don't know if y'all haters noticed but my mom kinda has cancer and I've been stuck in LA for the past few months thanks for your compassion! (Jk) four, you don't know what I am going through you don't know me so don't act like you do, ever hear the quote the hearts that are broken the most are hid by the biggest smiles? Yep! It's true! Shocker! Five the show has been running for almost seven years now last time I checked people grow and learn things unless you stayed completely the same since you were nine. And yeah guess what trying to hurt people that are going through so much pain doesn't make you any smarter prettier or better, sorry you don't like your life don't try to ruin mine too ❤️ PEACE!

In a second message, alongside a picture of a giant rainbow heart, she told how bullying makes her “so sad” and thanked fans for defending her against the trolls.

Another post showed her smiling while dressed in a unicorn onesie, with the hashtags #stayhappy and #staystrong.

The posts came after another earlier this month in which she told how love was the best antidote to hate.

She said: “Always remember love is never wrong❤️🌈🦄👻 just be and love yourself, the rest will fall into place.”

Rain and the rest of the Brown family are currently in Los Angeles after moving there from Alaska while Ami undergoes treatment for her cancer.

The family later hope to move to Colorado to set up a new permanent home. Alaskan Bush People Season 7 ended last month. There has not yet been a decision on whether there will be an Alaskan Bush People Season 8.
