Alex had been subject to online hate, and in the past has spoken out urging people to be kinder.

“l’ll admit it now, I don’t handle criticism well,” she wrote in December 2022. “I’m not cut out to handle reading negative things about myself. I can see a thousand positive comments and forget them all the moment someone says they don’t like me.”
