She started explaining: "People look at people on Instagram and social media, and they think 'Wow, their life is impossibly perfect'. That body, that vacation, that car - so much of it is fake, and that's ok,"
Further adding: "I'm not shading anybody who does that on social media because it is a viable career, but for an average viewer who's just watching these things and is aspiring for these things, just know that those things aren't always as attainable as they seem."
"If you're having trouble attaining these things or you can't afford to go to these big fancy festivals or you can't afford those nice clothes or your body doesn't snap into shape the way they do on these Instagram accounts, just know that it is ok and so much of this is just photo manipulation."
Hanna also apologized to her followers claiming that she felt bad for lying to them.
In her words, she continued: "I did feel kind of weird and guilty about this because I don't feel comfortable lying, even if it's a very harmless, however, elaborate, prank. So I'm sorry if you guys feel duped."
