“I’m so glad none of these people are part of my life or followers (I went and blocked them),” she continued.
“Because how can you get away with being completely ignorant and hurtful to people/someone you have no idea about?????”
Many of the cruel comments made fun of Brooke’s sanity, with one saying “scream me a river,” while another accusing her of playing the victim and trying to “control the story.”

Brooke and Darvid announced their split earlier this month.
And Thursday, she revealed the real reason she ended her relationship with the 27-year-old landscaper.
In a post shared on Instagram, Brooke said her romance with Darvid was like living in a “pressure cooker.”
“As you all know, Darvid and I went our separate ways. Darvid on the 2/1 came online and publicly announced that we had broken up,” she began.

“In an ideal world, I would have preferred to have mutual agreement and/or a say in when/how we express that to the public, but instead I woke up to that news that obviously shocked me a bit. There you saw my reaction.’
“But Darvid had every right to make that decision, his platform, it’s up to him. I’d say it’s better to take the bandage off.”
Brooke went on to say that it was her choice to end their relationship.

“My reasons for that are perfectly valid for me. I had been unhappy for a while and it wasn’t just because of the relationship. I have a lot of respect for Darvid and what he gave up for me to be IN the relationship, but it seems we lost ourselves along the way,” she continued.
“We had a very real love in a very unreal situation, but we also had a LOT of pressure on us. Which I felt I wore every day. At the beginning of the show I was the best version of myself and then the show ended and my sister died. I became my worst and my saddest.’
Brooke said she and Darvid were “ultimately two different people who wanted different things and that’s just that.”

She added: “I wish him all the best and with support I would really like to get over this and hope that this year we can become the best version of ourselves.”
