Woman receives death threats after people 'spot embarrassing detail' in her 'perfect morning' photo (14 Pics)

Her photo has been heavily criticised 

A blogger claims she has received death threats after sharing a photo of her morning routine on social media.
Scarlett London, 24, posted a picture of her sitting on her bed with a full face of make up and styled hair, surrounded by heart helium balloons with her healthy breakfast laid out in front of her.
But many people claim the photo is staged, and have criticised her for selling a "false, unobtainable image to impressionable young people".
She's also been mocked after people believe they spotted an embarrassing fake element to her photo - with many claiming her strawberry pancakes are actually tortilla wraps.
She shared the photo with the caption: "The best of days start with a smile and positive thoughts. And pancakes. And strawberries. And bottomless tea.
"My morning routine is now live on YouTube - and while I don't show you my real bed hair (trust me, it's not pretty), I do give you a little insight into how I start my day in a positive way.
"Head over to my stories for a swipe up link - and let me know what you think!"
It also features a plug for mouthwash, and a comment explaining it's a promotional post.
Scarlett was posted on Instagram , but went viral on Twitter after an unhappy follower took a screenshot and shared it.
One person wrote: "This is so ridiculous on so many level. Everything in this pic is ridiculous and hella FAKE. I don't know from where to start the tortillas or the product placement? #StrawberriesFajitas ."
Another commented: "It's images like this that give young girls false impressions of life and unrealistic expectations of how they expect to be treated."
One woman wrote: "Unrealistic staged photos like this are just as bad as Photoshopped models in magazines. It sells a false, unobtainable image to impressionable young people. You can refer to yourself as a poor, bullied "young girl" all you like, but if you’re going to effectively sell products to your followers, your methods are going to come under criticism just like other brands are criticised with their advertising is seen as inappropriate or damaging."
But others jumped to Scarlett's defense.
One wrote: "It's the parents responsibility to teach their children otherwise. And anyone who puts the blame on the people who post on social media has a problem with ownership. And people like you who put other people down are the reason people feel insecure."
Another replied: "This is a gorgeous photo! Please ignore the weirdos. This is a social MEDIA - its marketing, a virtual commercial & thats what you did with this perfectly curated set up."
She later shared another photo on her Instagram defending her posts, and claiming she's been sent death threats since posting the photo.
She also shared a screenshot of her audience demographic, showing just four per cent of her followers are under 18.
She wrote: "In the last 48 hours, grown men & women, MP’s, women’s equality representatives, journalists, actresses and broadcasters have discovered my Instagram feed and decided to pick it apart online, in front of thousands.
"Each time I refresh my page, hundreds of new nasty messages pour onto my Instagram, Twitter and YouTube, some of which have contained malicious death threats.
"There are now hundreds of thousands of tweets circling the internet, shaming me.
"I implore those mindlessly sharing this content to research who I am as a person, before they further drag my name and image through the mud.
She responded with several different social media posts

"Yes, I do adverts on here, but only with brands I genuinely use and would spend money on myself. My feed isn’t a place of reality (let’s talk about Exhibit A - above - I mean who spends their time in such a beautiful city, perched on a ledge, ice-cream in hand and smile permanently affixed to her face, it’s staged guys).
"Sometimes my photos are whimsical and OTT and a little too pink, but I’m not presenting this as an idealistic' version of life that young girls should aspire to.

"Those who follow me will know my reality. I try to raise awareness for the digestive condition I suffer from, the same condition that years ago threatened me graduating from university.
"My Instagram has been an outlet to show you can be positive and have fun with life, despite this condition.
"I personally don't think my content is harmful to young girls but I do agree Instagram can present a false expectation for people to live up to.
"And I am wholeheartedly sorry if I've ever made anyone feel inadequate through my content. My life mission is quite the opposite. I am a strong 24-year-old woman who has experienced bullying in the past.
"I am and will be okay after this hideous experience. But another young girl or guy as the subject of a targeted hate campaign might not be okay. Please remember at the centre of of every viral storm is a human being."
