Scarlett's decision to get healthy comes just weeks after she admitting she was "crying" after receiving negative comments from trolls on social media. After reading negative comments about herself, Scarlett took to Twitter to let her critics know just how bad they had made her feel about herself. "I'm honestly ashamed of some people on here," she wrote. "Hard to pretend I'm ok and be a good role model to others about how it's ok to just be you when the comments from grown adults on here have resulted in me crying my eyes out! I hope you're very proud of yourselves."

The star continued: "Feel like I need to speak out for others!! This is not fair this needs to stop!! Please to the people out there who aren't loving themselves right now please don't let other people stop you from doing what you love. Real beauty shines from within." Scarlett finished her message by writing: "I wanted and felt like I had to write that tweet to let you know at the end of the day I’m a 27-year-old girl with feelings and a family who get upset also when they see vile comments about my appearance. Something needs to change with our society!!"
