Spiranac has suffered before

The disappointment mentioned above in hypocrisy is not new for the internet queen. The hypocrisy of a female once disheartened the 2018 SI swimsuit model. In 2017, Golf Digest had Spiranac as the cover model of their magazine, to which a famous American reporter lashed with criticisms. Notably, after being a golf influencer, Spiranac has received hate comments from women and men alike, and as always, she has acknowledged all of them in the public.
