Playing Christie Brinkley's Daughter Sailor Speaks out Against Online Bullying: 'Stop Comparing Me to My Mother'

Christie Brinkley and her 18-year-old daughter, Sailor, recently posted for an adorable snapshot wearing matching outfits as the proud mom helped Sailor move off to college at Parsons School of Design in New York City.

In response, the internet hate machine did what it does best: it mocked the teenage girl for everything from her looks to her choice in higher education to her inability to live up to some imaginary standards apparently set by her supermodel mom.

Sailor took to Instagram on Wednesday to fire back at the random commenters showering her with undue hate. She shared a few screengrabs of particularly mean and tasteless messages, and took them to task in a lengthy caption.

Alright alright. This is going to be super long and super rant-y. Im sorry in advance. So, I usually never read the comment section under any stupid article about me.. And when i do i usually never take the comments to heart.. But i am so fed up. First of all- everyone needs to stop putting me and my siblings and me and my mother in competition. I believe comparison will kill you. Comparison to others is toxic and unhealthy.. As long as I am happy healthy and kind to others why should i care if i am not as 'pretty' as someone else ? Let alone not as 'pretty' as my own blood relatives? Secondly- Pushing down the school i worked my ass off for 4 years to get into, saying its for do-nothing trust fund babies, is not only stereotyping a scholastic community but is just plain incorrect and rude! I know many kids enrolled in Parsons who are the most hard working and passionate students in all of new york. And lastly.. The subject i have been meaning to touch on publicly for years- stop. comparing. me. to. my. mother. Believe it or not I am my own person with my own beliefs and own thoughts and my own face! Eyes smile teeth forehead! All mine! The whole shabang! Yes i am so fortunate that my mother is my mother.. And she will always be an inspiration to me... But being constantly compared to her 50+ years of success at only 18 years old? And being told I could never amount to what she was and what she looks like? Doesn't feel great. I just will never understand these people who WANT to make me feel badly, who WANT to tell an 18 year old girl she cant follow her dreams because if she does she WONT BE AS GOOD AS HER MOM WAS. I'm just a person figuring out what i want to do and what makes me happy. Leave me alone. My one wish is that these people can get off their computers, go chase a sunset, kiss someone they love, pursue one of their dreams and STOP making an 18 year old girl feel constantly inferior and hurt. Lets just fuckin spread love you guys. And pleaseeeee stop trolling me. Thank u🙏🏼

"I usually never read the comment section under any stupid article about me.. And when i do i usually never take the comments to heart.. But i am so fed up," she wrote.

Sailor responded to the bile-spewing hatemongers point by point, first addressing those who compared her looks to her 30-year-old sister, Alexa.

"I believe comparison will kill you. Comparison to others is toxic and unhealthy," Sailor argued. "As long as I am happy healthy and kind to others why should i care if i am not as 'pretty' as someone else ? Let alone not as 'pretty' as my own blood relatives?"

Next, she shot back at commenters who railed on her choice of higher education, writing, "Pushing down the school i worked my ass off for 4 years to get into, saying its for do-nothing trust fund babies, is not only stereotyping a scholastic community but is just plain incorrect and rude!" she wrote. "I know many kids enrolled in Parsons who are the most hard working and passionate students in all of new york."

Finally, she addressed the subject she's "been meaning to touch on publicly for years," which is constantly being compared to her mom.

"Believe it or not I am my own person with my own beliefs and own thoughts and my own face! Eyes smile teeth forehead! All mine! The whole shabang!" Sailor said. "Yes i am so fortunate that my mother is my mother.. And she will always be an inspiration to me... But being constantly compared to her 50+ years of success at only 18 years old? And being told I could never amount to what she was and what she looks like? Doesn't feel great."

"I'm just a person figuring out what i want to do and what makes me happy. Leave me alone," she added. "Let's just f***in spread love you guys. And pleaseeeee stop trolling me."
