“In 2010, fighting for my mental health, it was the last thing I needed,” Miller wrote on Facebook in response to the post. “Long story short, I survived. So do these pictures. I’m glad. Now, when I see that image of me in my red t-shirt, a rare smile on my face, I am reminded of my struggle. My endurance and my perseverance in the face of all kinds of demons. Some within. Some without… The first time I saw this meme pop up in my social media feed, I have to admit, it hurt to breathe. But as with everything in life, I get to assign meaning. And the meaning I assign to this/ my image is Strength. Healing. Forgiveness”.
The Lad Bible, who shared the pictures with their vast audience of over 11 million Facebook followers, immediately retracted the post and issued a statement apologising to Wentworth following his emotional essay.
