Annemarie Wiley is voicing her concerns about the recent cyberbullying she says she’s had to deal with recently … and it was sparked by a controversial drawing.

Annemarie Wiley, star of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’, recently shared a caricature of herself. The drawing depicted her with exaggerated muscles and a bottle of propofol – a substance used for general anesthesia – around her neck. This reference to propofol is likely due to her profession as a “Nurse Anesthetist”, as stated in her profile.

In the caption of her post, Wiley strongly criticized the image. She shared with her over 34k followers that she has been subjected to significant amounts of racism and cyberbullying lately, citing the caricature as a prime instance of this.

Annemarie said, “RACISM and cyber bullying.
In case anyone wants to understand the level that I’ve been dealing with… here you go. I am a black woman. I am a former collegiate athlete. I wake up at 4:30am every day to workout, and I am proud of the muscles and body that I have earned. I am proud to show all young girls that you don’t need to be a size zero to love your body and feel worthy. That you can be strong, athletic, and proud of yourself.”

She continued, “I am proud to be a role model for girls and women that don’t fit the “model mold”. I am 5’9, 150 lbs, a size 6, and I share that information proudly and openly. Drawing a black woman as a gorilla is disgusting and completely unacceptable! Black women are strong and beautiful. Throughout history black women have been villainized as combative, aggressive, angry, dangerous, and “animalistic” at every opportunity!”

“This is nothing compared to microagressions and name calling…This is an entirely different level of RACISM and HATRED!I am a mother. I take care of people for a living. There is a kind hearted human with feelings, children, and a REAL life behind the snippets you see on a reality tv show. Enough of the racism and enough of the cyber bullying. Shame on you drunkdrawn.” Annemarie concluded.
