Chloe Lattanzi has Copped Criticism for Posting on Instagram While Mum Olivia Newton-John has Cancer
That sounds kinda crazy, right? But it’s true. Someone has jumped behind their keyboard and had a go at Olivia Newton-John’s daughter, Chloe Lattanzi because she has posted some selfies on Instagram while her mother is battling cancer.
Clearly, neither Chloe nor I got that memo that social media was to be shunned while immediate family members fought their disease privately.
The 31-year-old shared a throwback picture of her mum Olivia and revealed her plans to leave the social media platform following comments that took aim at her grieving process.
“Some woman commented that I couldn’t post happy pictures of myself because of what my mother is going through,” Chloe wrote. “I am so sad and no one has any idea what I am going through.
“I don’t want my life to be public and this the greatest struggle a daughter could go through,” she said.
“And the last thing I need is someone telling me that I can’t distract myself and post normal creative pics on my Instagram. My mom is fine and the one thing she told me is to keep being creative positive and take my mind off anything negative.”
“I’m going to leave my Instagram for a while. Not. Because I’m ashamed that I posted a pic that wasn’t to do with my mom, but because I’m angry.”
“Angry that there are such incredibly insensitive assholes out there making me feel ashamed of trying to feel normal. Good bye for a while,” wrote Chloe.
She completed her post by thanking her fans for their support and then set her Instagram profile to private.
Seriously, what kind of person harasses a stranger for how they are dealing with their parent’s medical conditions? Whoever they are, I certainly hope they are feeling ashamed of themselves, although if they are capable of behaving this badly I have my doubts they’d feel sorry for their actions.
Chloe has confirmed that Olivia will be using cannabis oil and ‘other natural healing remedies’, in addition to modern medicine to battle her cancer. She owns a legal marijuana farm in Oregon with fiancé James Driskill.
Earlier this week, Olivia confirmed she had postponed her North American tour dates in June after learning her breast cancer had returned and spread to her back.
She previously battled breast cancer in 1992 at the age of 43, undergoing a partial mastectomy, chemotherapy and breast reconstruction.
