Hailey Baldwin has publicly addressed the claims made in a viral TikTok video that she is "not nice".
In July 2020, former restaurant hostess Julia Carolan posted a series of videos on video-sharing app TikTok, where she recalled the interactions she had with celebrities over time and rated them each out of 10.
Carolan gave the 24-year-old star a rating of "3.5 out of 10", and said she met Baldwin a "handful of times" and "every time she was not nice."
Taking to her YouTube channel recently, Baldwin gave an in-depth response to Carolan's claims.

While Baldwin apologised to Carolan initially in the comments section of the TikTok, she said when she first saw the video, she "was so upset".
"There's never an excuse for being rude," she told Dr. Jessica Clemons in her latest YouTube video.
Baldwin said she "felt bad" Carolan had that experience with her, but it also made her "kind of frustrated" as "you never know what someone's going through".
"I remember going through so many times in my life where I was so sad, and so heartbroken that like engaging with people felt hard for me," she said.

"I wish I didn't act that way towards her. I'm a human and I made a mistake and I acted a way that was out of character for me. I acted in a way that I don't want to be. I'm trying to do better every single day. I want to continue to grow as a person. I'm open to people correcting me."
The conversation with Dr. Clemons then turned towards cancel culture in general, and the benefits and drawbacks of using social media as a method for holding public figures accountable.
Baldwin said she does not think the people who "try to correct and try to tell [her] what [she] needs to be and what [she] needs to do" necessarily "need to be people on social media".
This isn't the first time Baldwin has been under scrutiny on social media.

Since dating — and later marrying — singer Justin Bieber, 27, the model has been under fire from the musician's fans, and trolls in general.
In late 2020, the singer called out trolls who tried to coordinate an online 'attack' of his wife, using his fans and the fans of his ex-girlfriend, singer Selena Gomez.
"This sad excuse of a human just encouraged people on video to literally go after my wife, telling people to say that my previous relationship was better so on and so fourth. I just wanted to share this so that people get an idea of what we face on a day to day," he said in an Instagram Story.

"It is extremely hard to choose the high road when I see people like this try and rally to gather people to bully the person I love most in the world. It is not right.
"But I will say this. As many people as there are that want to spend their time publicly degrading, shaming and trying to humiliate us, we would like to ask those who have it in them to lift us up in prayer. We need prayer and support as we continue to put ourselves out there."
