Who is Karina Irby?
Karina Irby is an Australian influencer who “lives in bikinis” as she owns and runs a swimwear brand.
Designer of bikinis, Irby has approximately 490,000 followers on TikTok and more than one million followers on Instagram, where she frequently shares bikini photos.
With her 1.2 million followers, the 32-year-old is known for posting “genuine” pictures of her physique, and she frequently calls out “trolls” who insult her appearance.
The majority of Karina Irby’s social media videos include her advertising her bikini brand; however, the audience recently criticised the influencer for posting a pretty “disturbing” video.
Karina responded to the backlash, and claimed that all of the criticism was “stupid.”
“No matter what you do on social media these days, someone will always find a way to bring you down, or in this case, project their insecurities or issues upon you. But, in this case, the facts are pretty simple. My stepdad and I have a great, normal relationship,” she said.
She also discussed another video of herself, in which she is shown celebrating Christmas while wearing swimwear. Regarding the video, she stated: “It’s a hot Australian Christmas and our family spent it by the pool, hence the swimwear. This kind of stuff is like water off a duck’s back to me. If you don’t read the comments, they don’t exist.”
