Ireland Baldwin to Haters: Why Hate?!?

by at . Comments

The modeling career of Ireland Baldwin is barely underway.

But the daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger - who signed last month with IMG - has already faced the wrath of Internet users after just a couple shoots.

And she has a message for these haters: Why all the hate?!?

“What I don’t fully understand is: What is the good in commenting on a photo of a 17-year-old girl and calling her fat, ugly, etc.?” Baldwin asks in a new Tumblr post “Is that helping you in some way? … Personally, I try to see the beauty in everyone. … I even see the beauty in the people who send me hateful replies!

Ireland also tries to distance herself from her gorgeous mother and temper-filled father.

“I am not my parents," she writes. "My mom is one of the most beautiful women in the world. Let’s not forget, I also have a Dad too, so genetically speaking, I wasn’t built to look like my Mom’s identical twin!

"I get hateful replies and threats regarding mistakes of my Dad’s past. This isn’t fair. I had nothing to do with anything that happened back then, so I don’t fully understand why I am being targeted. More importantly, my Dad has moved on.”

Just a few weeks ago, Baldwin posed in a bikini atop a boat in New York.

She's looked pretty darn good... and she makes some pretty darn good points in this rant as well, don't you think?
