Cori Broadus has been in the public eye from a young age. Still, Snoop Dogg’s daughter has faced much criticism and scrutiny from online trolls. 

She opened up about her experience during an appearance on the Karamo Show on Thursday.

“It just gets to a point where you got to say something — when you grow up in the public eye you know this is what comes with it. Haters are going to hate, if they’re not speaking; you’re not doing something right,” Broadus said.

“I love my dad; sometimes I be like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe that’s my dad,’’ she continued. “Being his daughter — so many people have these expectations … even me, myself, I have these big shoes to fill but I always say, ‘I have different shoes to fill, my own shoes to fill’”.

The 23-year-old opened up about being diagnosed with lupus at the age of 6 and having had depression as a child.

“Even ‘til this day, I still look at myself sometimes and I have to learn how to love me, for me, naturally,” she said about the swelling and hyperpigmentation that has been associated with her lupus. “If it is the new her then you just have to embrace it.”

Broadus shared that most of the online hate she receives is either tied to her body size or her skin tone.

“As a kid I was always an outcast. My brothers are light skin, they’re slimmer … even my friends, I had light skin friends with curly hair … I was always just different,” she shared. “Even the guys, they were always like ‘can you put me on with her’ and I was like, ‘Why don’t you want to be put on with me?’ I was the homegirl.”

Broadus knows the importance of sharing her story. She wants those younger to know they’re not alone, and practicing self-love is a work always in progress.

“My goal now is to talk to young women, talk to young boys, so this stuff can be instilled in them when they’re younger,” she said. “Because if I had this stuff instilled in me when I was younger, whatever anybody had to say about me wouldn’t have mattered — because I know how I look, I know how I feel and I’m fine with it.”
