Paige has dealt with online bullying for years due to her public controversies that include private tapes being leaked, troubles with ex-boyfriends, failed WWE drug tests, and more. More recently, Paige again became the subject of online bullying thanks to a joke made by Triple H, where he said Paige may have kids she doesn't know about.
Speaking to Seconds Out, Paige questioned how someone has the mindset of an online bully and how she deals with it today.
"I can't do anything without being on the internet. Literally, I breathe and people are mad at me. I don't understand. You kind of have to take it with a pinch of salt. There's days where I get really frustrated with it and I'll delete apps off my phone because I'm so sick of people attacking me. Especially, obviously, with a recent joke that was made. I had an influx of people just being really mean to me. It's hard to deal with. As a woman, it's hard to deal with. A lot of the time, they're degrading me or making me feel like I'm disgusting. Some days it's really hard, other days I'm just like, 'Fuck you!' Just, get a life. I've never been that person to go on the internet and talk crap to someone. I don't understand how someone has that in their body to like want to comment on a women's picture and be like, 'You're ugly.' I don't understand why they wake up and they're like, 'Okay, I'm gonna talk crap to someone on the internet today because that's gonna make me feel good.' No, you have issues. You need to go get help," she stated.
In a recent interview with Lilian Garcia on Chasing Glory, Paige revealed that the joke made by Triple H didn't bother her, so much as the fact that it opened the door for the online attacks. She said that the attacks had started to slow down, but his joke brought them back. You can find her full comments, including her thoughts on Triple H's apology, by clicking here.
