The 22-year-old spoke out against online hate days after telling fans she is “attracted to people” in a response to a question about her sexual preference.
Phillippe reminded her followers she will happily block any people who leave cruel remarks in the comment section of her Instagram posts.
“QUICK REMINDER: I can & will block profiles commenting bigoted/hateful messages under my posts,” the celebrity offspring wrote.
“My Instagram profile is not a place for cruelty/hate speech & I intend to do what I can to keep it that way. Peace & Love.”
A few days earlier, the daughter of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe casually spoke about her sexuality after being asked about it in a Q+A.
“Do u like boys or girls?” the fan asked, to which Phillippe replied: “I’m attracted to… people! (Gender is whatever),” sharing the response over a selfie.
Phillippe has kept her dating life relatively private after going public with her boyfriend Owen Mahoney in 2019.
Speaking to E! Online in 2021, Phillippe said she prefers to keep things “real” on social media, as well as in her relationships.
“We do see a lot of the falsified sides or the facades, and it’s just not completely true of everyone, and I think a little truth is good sometimes,” she explained.
“People that are able to be that honest and tap into that empathy in such a real way, there’s nothing like it to me. My friends, I think they all have their own ways of doing it, I love that about them. And in my romantic life it’s also important, for sure.”
