Model Ajak Deng Cries & Admits Contemplating Suicide, While Sharing The Effects Of Working In The Modeling Industry [VIDEO]
It’s widely known that life in the spotlight can often take its toll, causing just as many problems as it seems to solve—and the fashion industry is one of the most grueling of all. Model Ajak Deng recently expressed in a heartbreaking video that things for her are so bad at the moment, that she’s had suicidal thoughts due to the harsh judgement she constantly faces.
Ajak Deng is one of the bright lights in the fashion industry, as a successful model, but it appears that she has reached a disturbing breaking point. Deng recently uploaded an extremely emotional video on Instagram tearfully explaining that she is feeling suicidal because she is constantly told she isn’t good enough for the modelling world.
In the video Deng said:
“The life that everybody always f**king want, right? You wanna be a f**king model, you wanna be this, you wanna be a successful one, but the thing is, you don’t know how lonely it is at the top. And not only that, the people that work with you are constantly telling you, you need to be a better person. And that you’re a horrible person. Constantly. On a daily basis. I’m sick and tired. I’m done. If I do commit suicide, know that I commit suicide because of you mother**kers. I’m done with this s**t, I’m done, I can’t do it.”
