PLL's Sasha Pieterse has written the most epic open letter about her body image

Slay honey, slay.

Sasha Pieterse isn't just the kween of Rosewood, she slays IRL too.

Since the dawn of time (or whenever Pretty Little Liars started), we have admired Sasha as well as her character Alison DiLaurentis. She may have been an epic mean girl in the first few seasons, but she always conveyed one message: confidence.

Although, being so heavily in the spotlight comes with one negative thing, H8ERS! Something which Sasha has had to deal with a lot, especially when it has come to her body image.

Now, she has written an epic open letter to all her 'fans' who troll her, and we gotta say, it's very Alison DiLaurentis of her.

"Woman in particular are judged by their looks whether they are in the spotlight or not. We've subconsciously been shaped by the notion that we can only base our self worth on how people positively or negatively see us.

"This is incredibly destructive. I learned quickly that if I was going to make it in this industry I had to develop a thick skin. When I say "make it", I'm not referring to success and fame, I mean that if I am going to protect my heart and soul I need to make sure I create my own healthy environment."

She continued: "There then became a point where my body changed dramatically. Being in my line of work meant that all of those changes were documented. There was major backlash on social media. People were actually angry that I had gained weight, I was being (and still am) called names, made fun of, the (unfortunate) usual but it wasn't until people started asking and assuming I was pregnant that I decided to say something.

"I had at that point found out that I had a really bad hormone imbalance and decided to share this news publicly. It disturbed me that so many females were so quick to tear me down on a subject that we all struggle with."

Everyone ever: bow down.
