Which she rightly deserved.

But then this guy decided to make fun of her dress by comparing her to a cheesecake.

Kenna Sharp, 16, from Kansas, wasn't having any of it. She told BuzzFeed News she felt "compelled" to defend Kerione.

Despite the fact Sharp doesn't know Kerione, she encouraged her 41,000 followers to find their own cheesecake doppelgänger.

She told BuzzFeed News: "When other people are being attacked I find it so much more upsetting than when it's me.

"It used to feel like a nightmare when I first started getting harassed [online]."

She said #CompareYourselfToACheesecake2016 created an "army of people that are all about support... and positivity".

Sharp added: "It's so amazing how many people joined in!"

"This girl was so beautiful," Sharp said. "I still don't know who she is, but she deserves to be able to wear her gorgeous-ass dress with her gorgeous-ass self without someone making fun of her."
