Singer Noah Cyrus said hateful online comments made her “suicidal” and dependent on “drugs” at the age of 11.
In a series of posts on her Instagram Story, the 23-year-old singer/actress talked about how she wasn’t going to allow internet trolls to ruin her engagement. Cyrus recently announced she and fashion designer Pinkus got engaged, Page Six reported.
“Since I’ve announced something so pure and happy for me and my life, the internet and commenters have been working so hard to take the joy, love and happiness from me,” Cyrus wrote.

“Today being surrounded of comments calling me ugly, and commenting on my face and body—as you all did when I was just 11-12 years old,” she added.
“When I was still forming my brain, I was lead to believe by these same people on the internet that myself—that little girl self—didn’t deserve to live because she was not good enough and did not reach your beauty standards,” Cyrus continued. “I’ve been reminded again today how deeply f***ed the internet is and how it turned me against myself and lead myself to believe I should kill myself, wasn’t worth living, ending up suicidal and dependent on drugs.”
The singer said she worries “so deeply for the children” and her “own children” growing up with the internet.
“No one deserves the words I’ve read today, and I’m lucky I’m in a place that these words don’t trigger me into hurting myself once again,” the actress wrote. “The internet is hell on earth, and we’re all here together.”
She said there’s so many who are “being affected by these same words being told to them and far worse,” and called on people to “stop judging people for who they love, what they look like, where they come from, and how THEY live THEIR lives.”
“I’m so sick of it,” Cyrus wrote. “People are losing their lives to these type of words. Murderous words that you people drop at the press of a button, and there is never any accountability held. I’m so tired of seeing it on the daily. It really makes me sick.”
The sister of Miley Cyrus concluded her lengthy posts by writing, “You’re all so beautiful, and I love you. I hope you feel my love from afar today, where you may be.”
The singer has talked in the past about her battle with depression. In 2019, the “Lonely” hitmaker said, “I felt stuck in this place that I could not get out of for a while. I felt like I had no control over my life.”
She’s also been open about her struggle with a drug addiction and has been in “recovery” since 2020.
