Chloe Trautman urges followers not to believe everything they see on social media
Given the loss she was facing, Chloe took a moment to urge her followers not to trust everything they saw on social media.
She wrote, “I’m sharing this message to remind everyone that just because someone’s life appears a certain way online doesn’t make it true. People only share the best moments, the best photos, and all of their wins.”
She went on to add that she was “sharing a low, being vulnerable and saying hey I’m not doing the best right now and that’s okay.”
Chloe did not elaborate on the exact cause of her father’s death, but she is clearly struggling with the loss.
She has not made additional comments regarding her grief.
