Bella bravely came forward on Twitter after a troll sent her an inappropriate message.
Over the past few months, we've seen countless women and men bravely come forward (some after years of silence) to address their experiences of sexual assault.
The latest person to speak out about their abuse is ex-Disney Channel star Bella Thorne.
A few days ago, Bella posted a picture of herself looking AMAZING and shared it to Twitter.

But unfortunately, as is usually the way things go whenever Bella posts a selfie... someone replied to the tweet with an inappropriate message saying "What did Disney do to this girl? I think she was molested."
And then Bella replied...
Bella didn't elaborate on anything else, including the identity of the person who sexually abused her either but she did say that it had nothing to do with Disney.
She followed the tweet up with this a few minutes later:
