Gypsy Rose issues social media warning just after leaving prison

Gypsy Rose issues social media warning just after leaving prison

Gypsy Rose Blanchard has issued a warning on social media after finding fake profiles pretending to be her

After spending nearly a decade in prison for orchestrating the murder of her abusive mother, it appears as though there are still learning curves to come for this now-free woman.

Having been released early from prison on Thursday (28 December), Gypsy Rose Blanchard has already faced a whirlwind of emotions it seems since leaving.

The 32-year-old made parole back in September after being sentenced to spend ten years behind bars for the murder of her mother, Clauddine 'Dee Dee' Blanchard in 2015.

It was a case that shocked the nation after it was revealed that Dee Dee had pretended that Gypsy was a terminally ill child, forcing her to use a wheelchair, shaving her head, and making her undergo unnecessary medical procedures to keep up the act.

It was only when Gypsy met Nicholas 'Nick' Godejohn online that they concocted an awful plan, which saw Dee Dee be stabbed to death by Godejohn.

However, Gypsy has gone on to express remorse for the murder of her mom and believes that this new chapter in her life will be a time without ‘hardships’.

Opening up to PEOPLE on the regret and the remorse she feels towards her mother, she said: "If I had another chance to redo everything, I don't know if I would go back to when I was a child and tell my aunts and uncles that I'm not sick and mommy makes me sick.

Gypsy Rose Blanchard was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the murder of her mother Dee Dee in 2015.

"Or If I would travel back to just the point of that conversation with Nick and tell him, 'You know what, I'm going to go tell the police everything.' I kind of struggle with that.

"Nobody will ever hear me say I'm glad she's dead or I'm proud of what I did. I regret it every single day," she added.

But what Gypsy perhaps didn’t anticipate was how meddling the online community could be as fake profiles impersonating her have already began to crop up since her release.

Now, after serving the majority of her sentence, she has been released from jail and shared her first post-freedom snap to social media platforms, Facebook and Instagram - of which she already boasts 3.8 million followers.

"First selfie of freedom!" she wrote on Instagram.

The now 32-year-old has been released from prison, and shared her 'first selfie of freedom' on Instagram.

Gypsy Rose’s Instagram bio reads: “Public Figure, Public Speaker, Author, Advocating Awareness about Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy.”

But it has only been two days since that post and Gypsy has already had to flag several fake profiles online.

She wrote in an Instagram post showing a fake profile: “WARNING! Watch out for fake Gypsy accounts like this one. My instagram is verified and I am working on verification on my other social media.

"Please be mindful of what accounts you see and follow and report any suspicious or fake accounts. Thank you.”

Gypsy Rose has warned her 3 million followers of profiles impersonating her online.

Thanfully, the online community was quick to rally behind her as her supporters continue to grow since the release of her book Released: Conversations on the Eve of Freedom and her soon-to-be docu-series The Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard.

One commenter wrote: “You literally have an army of girlies standing behind you. We love you. Do not play with Gypsy”.

Someone else found it crazy that Gypsy is calling them out: “Imagine being called out by gypsy herself”.

And another commented: “Okay queen on my way to report the fakes”.
