Gypsy Rose Blanchard-Anderson is addressing the backlash she has received from some after she was released from prison last month.
As you may know, Gypsy Rose spent seven years in prison after pleading guilty to her involvement in her mother's murder. She was released on parole on December 28, 2023.
The now 32-year-old has received a tremendous amount of support as she's believed to be a victim of Munchausen by proxy, a physiological disorder that investigators claim her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, had.
On the flip side, she has also received some backlash, as many can't get past the fact that she helped to plan the murder of her mother. Now, Gypsy Rose is addressing that backlash in a new Instagram post.
Gypsy Rose Says To 'Ignore The Haters' Amid Backlash
"Those who choose to stay ignorant about my personal growth as a person and place labels on me DO NOT influence my happiness," Gypsy Rose wrote in her latest social media post, adding, "Spread love NOT hate."
The caption was posted alongside a photo that read, "Keep calm and ignore the haters" as well as a second photo that said, "Living a good life really is the best revenge."
Fans of the 32-year-old immediately backed her up, commenting words of support.
"Absolutely LOVE this queen!!! H--- ya! So proud of you!" one user wrote.

Another wrote, "Baby girl, you are a sweet spirit and soul. No one can take that away from you. It is who you are deep inside. You can’t fake that. Try and ignore those that are haters. They are usually miserable souls that need love and forgiveness. I love you!"
One of Gypsy's followers expressed how "proud " they are of her for standing up for herself and being true to who she is. "Just keep spreading awareness on signs of Munchausen by proxy! So people won’t have to go through what you did. Love you keep your head up," they commented.
As The Blast has previously reported, Dee Dee Blanchard had convinced her daughter, friends, family members, and doctors that Gypsy Rose had suffered from various symptoms, diseases, and disorders.
Some of the medical diagnoses that Dee Dee claimed Gypsy had received included asthma, epilepsy, vision impairments, hearing impairments, and being paralyzed from the waist down -- none of which Gypsy actually had.

Fans continued to flood the comments section to show support for Gypsy, saying things such as "Love you Gypsy" and "You know the truth & you know you have an amazing family, friends and husband."
Another simply expressed, "Well said Gypsy!"
As you know, Gypsy Rose Blanchard-Anderson was released from prison last month after serving 85% of her 10-year sentence for pleading guilty to second-degree murder of her own mother.
Following her release, she has been advocating for victims of Munchausen by proxy and of abuse. “I want to be a voice for the voiceless. I want to come out and tell people this is who I am, this is why I’m doing this,” she told Entertainment Tonight, adding, “It’s important to me. It’s close to my heart,” referring to those who are victims of Munchausen by proxy syndrome.
