This is awful.

Zoella aka Zoe Sugg has been accused of faking mental health issues

Zoella has not had an easy time lately.

Only recently was she accused (by her own fans!) that she was cheating on her long-term boyfriend for possibly the stupidest reason ever, but now she's been accused of something worse.

Earlier this year in October, Zoella opened up about her struggles with anxiety, and how it had gotten more and more intense as her YouTube following grew.

She wrote:

“Some weeks I’d feel on top of the world, and other weeks I would be rocking back and forth in tears on a train on my own on my way to London to film something.

“Although I never really talked in depth about my anxiety and the rise of my channel at the time, it was something that was extremely challenging to balance.

"Knowing I could stay at home and not run the risk of a panic attack, or pushing myself because I WANTED TO DO IT. The amount of times I’ve stood outside my own launch events crying and struggling to breathe and not being able to step back inside."

Now, however, in a deleted post she wrote for The Sun, she has had to defend herself against accusations that she made up her struggle with mental illness for a bigger following.

“Cyber bullying is an issue I feel passionate about addressing. Unfortunately, it’s an experience I know about all too well, having gone through it myself in recent years. I’ve had comments about being too skinny and that I pretend to suffer from anxiety to boost my subscriber figures," she wrote.

She has in fact been diagnosed by her therapist with the condition, so to say somebody is faking a mental illness is proper offensive...
