Haters hate elsewhere! After Sailor Brinkley-Cook's mom, Christie Brinkley, shared a pic of the pair via Instagram on Tuesday, August 16, the 18-year-old endured negative commentary on everything from her looks to her choice of school. The next day, the Parsons student and aspiring model hit back strong and hard.

"Alright alright," Cook began a lengthy post. "This is going to be super long and super rant-y. Im sorry in advance. So, I usually never read the comment section under any stupid article about me.. And when i do i usually never take the comments to heart.. But i am so fed up."

First, she addressed the way she's been compared to her siblings, including her half-sister, Alexa Ray Joel. "Everyone needs to stop putting me and my siblings and me and my mother in competition," she said. "I believe comparison will kill you. Comparison to others is toxic and unhealthy.. As long as I am happy healthy and kind to others why should i care if i am not as 'pretty' as someone else ? Let alone not as 'pretty' as my own blood relatives?"

After that, she clapped back at those who claimed that her NYC-based college is only for the elite. "Pushing down the school i worked my ass off for 4 years to get into, saying its for do-nothing trust fund babies, is not only stereotyping a scholastic community but is just plain incorrect and rude! I know many kids enrolled in Parsons who are the most hard working and passionate students in all of new york," Cook, whose father is Peter Cook, noted.

Alright alright. This is going to be super long and super rant-y. Im sorry in advance. So, I usually never read the comment section under any stupid article about me.. And when i do i usually never take the comments to heart.. But i am so fed up. First of all- everyone needs to stop putting me and my siblings and me and my mother in competition. I believe comparison will kill you. Comparison to others is toxic and unhealthy.. As long as I am happy healthy and kind to others why should i care if i am not as 'pretty' as someone else ? Let alone not as 'pretty' as my own blood relatives? Secondly- Pushing down the school i worked my ass off for 4 years to get into, saying its for do-nothing trust fund babies, is not only stereotyping a scholastic community but is just plain incorrect and rude! I know many kids enrolled in Parsons who are the most hard working and passionate students in all of new york. And lastly.. The subject i have been meaning to touch on publicly for years- stop. comparing. me. to. my. mother. Believe it or not I am my own person with my own beliefs and own thoughts and my own face! Eyes smile teeth forehead! All mine! The whole shabang! Yes i am so fortunate that my mother is my mother.. And she will always be an inspiration to me… But being constantly compared to her 50+ years of success at only 18 years old? And being told I could never amount to what she was and what she looks like? Doesn't feel great. I just will never understand these people who WANT to make me feel badly, who WANT to tell an 18 year old girl she cant follow her dreams because if she does she WONT BE AS GOOD AS HER MOM WAS. I'm just a person figuring out what i want to do and what makes me happy. Leave me alone. My one wish is that these people can get off their computers, go chase a sunset, kiss someone they love, pursue one of their dreams and STOP making an 18 year old girl feel constantly inferior and hurt. Lets just fuckin spread love you guys. And pleaseeeee stop trolling me. Thank u??

And finally, she brought up the topic that she said she's "been meaning to touch on publicly for years": "Stop. comparing. me. to. my. mother. Believe it or not I am my own person with my own beliefs and own thoughts and my own face! Eyes smile teeth forehead! All mine! The whole shabang!"

Cook went on to say that while she feels "so fortunate that my mother is my mother," and she finds her mom to be an "inspiration," people need to let her grow at her own pace. "Being constantly compared to her 50+ years of success at only 18 years old? And being told I could never amount to what she was and what she looks like? Doesn't feel great," she admitted. "I just will never understand these people who WANT to make me feel badly, who WANT to tell an 18 year old girl she cant follow her dreams because if she does she WONT BE AS GOOD AS HER MOM WAS. I'm just a person figuring out what i want to do and what makes me happy. Leave me alone."

Still, she finished the note with good vibes. "My one wish is that these people can get off their computers, go chase a sunset, kiss someone they love, pursue one of their dreams and STOP making an 18 year old girl feel constantly inferior and hurt," Cook said. "Lets just f—kin spread love you guys. And pleaseeeee stop trolling me. Thank u 🙏."

Brinkley cheered on her daughter's empowering message via her own account on Thursday. "If you're reading this on a smart phone, You are holding a powerful tool in the palm of your hand," the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit alum wrote. "It has the power to shape people's lives, self esteem, and confidence. It can make them feel good, or scar them for life. Let's all choose to use this machine to make the world a kinder more beautiful place. Let's choose to create beauty, through mutual respect, compassion and love. Bravo @sailorbrinkleycook sometimes when we we stand up for ourselves, we are standing up for each other. I think we're one post closer to A kinder world."
