It’s not your fault Mia!, It's the fault of those who sexualize people any chance they get, even if that means young girls because they can't understand that there is a person with feelings and opinions behind what they are sexualizing. I love you so much girl 🤍— juju 🤍 (@jucaceres7) July 8, 2021
It's not your fault. Never yours. Blame those who sexualize people at any chance they get. You hear me, never yours or other women's fault; blame the one who sexualizes. Also, people who sexualize anyone can go pluck their eyes out like what the Matthew 18:9 said.— A.J_writes (@lenbrys) July 7, 2021
Mia you don't have to apologize for anything at all for how you look. Whatever happened wasn't your fault, it was the people around you who misused your innocence. I wish I was at TVA so I could put you in a better place but sorry 😭 Still a baddie Mia, love you queen ☺❤✨— Krush (taylena's version) 🧣 (@selpinksfetish) July 7, 2021
You don't have to feel sorry for anyone people who have sadistic nature of bullying should end. Every one deserves respect even if your past haunts you for whatever reasons it is human tendencies to label a person. You give hope to many fans who love you ..🌹🌹🌹💐💐💐 stay cool— biggles (@shaks72) July 7, 2021
People often call me "Mia" because I wear glasses and have big boobs. But it's an honor because I've been following you for three years and I think you're an amazing and fun person!!— isabola (@isabola1337) July 7, 2021
