Key Takeaways

  • Michelle Trachtenberg has been the subject of numerous comments on Instagram speculating about her well-being and potential illness.
  • Her posts, since the speculation, often contained thinly veiled references to the ongoing speculation of her health and alleged illness.
  • Through it all, Michelle Trachtenberg remains firm in asserting her health and happiness.

In early 2024, Michelle Trachtenberg, known for her role in “Gossip Girl,” found herself at the center of a wave of online scrutiny regarding her health.

The actress, now 38, has been the subject of numerous comments on Instagram speculating about her well-being and potential illness based on her appearance in recent photos.

The speculation began on January 17, 2024, when Trachtenberg posted a photo with her friend and “Spy Kids” star Alexa PenaVega, showing the two getting their hair done.

One user commented, “Michelle u look sick. R u ok?

Trachtenberg did not hesitate to respond, pointing out the nonsense of the comment and highlighting that she is no longer the teenager many remember.

Explain to me how I look sick,” she replied.

“Did you lose a calendar and not realize I’m not 14. I’m 38. How sad for you to leave such a comment.”

The commenter quickly apologized, clarifying that no disrespect was intended.

Despite her initial response, the comments continued the next day after Trachtenberg shared another selfie showing off a new ombré hairstyle with the caption, “Snake it to make it.”

Followers speculated about various health issues, from liver problems to anorexia, based solely on her appearance in the photo.

One particularly concerning comment read, “Why are the whites of her eyes yellow?” followed by others suggesting liver issues and signs of malnutrition.

On January 18, Trachtenberg addressed the negativity directly, expressing her frustration with the intrusive comments.

I’ve received several comments recently about my appearance,” she wrote alongside another selfie.

“I have never had plastic surgery I am happy and healthy. Check yourself haters.”

She continued to defend herself by posting more selfies, proudly showing off her new pink hair tips, and calling out the trolls.

The backlash did not stop Trachtenberg from continuing to share her life with her followers.

On January 19, she posted another defiant message:

“Fun fact. This is my face. Not malnutrition. No problems. Why do you have to hate? Get a calendar.”

Trachtenberg’s posts in the following months often contained thinly veiled references to the ongoing speculation of her health and alleged illness.

On March 31, she posted a picture of a hoodie that read “ew, people” and captioned it:

“Raise your hand if you are done adulting today.”

Later that day, she shared another image stating, “sometimes it is better to react with no reaction,” with the hashtag #advice.

By April, Trachtenberg’s tone became more assertive.

On April 2, she shared a picture with the quote, “I hear what you’re saying and I give exactly this much f**k,” captioning it,

“Someone stole my line 😈🎬.”

A week later, she posted, “Hey, I found your nose. It was in my business,” adding “walk away” as the caption.

On May 14, Trachtenberg declared she was in her “F**k You era,” and on May 21, she targeted her critics directly:

“For the trolls …… buy some more tiny whities. Your mom ain’t going to do your laundry forever.”

Despite the outpouring of support from many fans, some continued to express concern.

One follower commented,

“@michelletrachtenberg are you ok? All your posts seem a bit angry. Do you have a good support system? I hope you’re okay and come through whatever is upsetting.”

Through it all, Michelle Trachtenberg remains firm in asserting her health and happiness.

Her series of candid and often humorous posts indicate her resilience against online criticism and speculation about illness.

While some fans may continue to worry, Trachtenberg’s message is clear: she is confident in who she is and unbothered by the negative comments.

In Case You Didn’t Know

  • Michelle Trachtenberg fluently speaks Russian, all thanks to her Russian and Ukrainian heritage.
  • She has won the Young Artist and Prism awards for her acting skills.
  • She is a talented figure skater showcasing her skills in various ice-skating exhibitions.
  1. I know that “Buffy” ended in 2003. Yes. Michelle is 20 years older, but she doesn’t look well. She looks like she may have health issues, but I certainly hope that she will be alright.
