You can troll her all you like but Paige Spiranac is having the last laugh.
The former professional golfer turned Instagram influencer has long been an advocate for body positivity and isn’t shy about shutting down critics online when body shaming becomes their preferred avenue of attack.

She was at it again on Thursday, apologising to absolutely nobody as she spruiked the release of her golf towel, to protect and clean clubs, which featured an image of her leaving little to the imagination.
Spiranac regularly cops insults on social media for showing off her cleavage, but isn’t bowing to the haters.
“‘No one will ever take you seriously if you keep posting pictures with cleavage’,” Spiranac wrote on Instagram as part of the post promoting her product, which was inspired by the green jacket awarded to the winner of the Masters.
“So here’s to continuing doing what I want,” she added with a kissing emoji.
“I made some towels with this image and other prints inspired by The Masters! Link in bio if you want to buy or for the haters to dry their tears with.”

Spiranac continued her laughing spree on Twitter, suggesting while others are busy making snide remarks, she’s raking in money.
“You call me an IG thot, I call myself a business woman,” she tweeted.
“I’m laughing thinking of all the golf courses who wouldn’t let me play because I was wearing a tank top and now they will have to see me on a towel with my boobs out. You love to see it.”
One social media user replied to her towel promotion by writing: “Not complaining or being a buzzkill in the slightest. But one can’t post this & not expect to be sexualised later.”
Spiranac replied: “I’ve never complained about that. I know my brand.”

Last week Spiranac issued a furious response to Aussie sports broadcaster Francis Leach, who took aim at her appearance in an ad for PointsBet, which appeared in a Melbourne newspaper.
“At a time when the objectification and abuse of women, reducing them to being little more than playthings for men is being exposed for what it is, how can @theage run garbage like this for revenue,” Leach asked his 53,000 Twitter followers.
“It’ll editorialise in the front, cash in at the back. Hypocrisy.”
But Spiranac took offence to Leach’s comment and fired off several heated replies to the former SEN radio star and ABC Offsiders panellist.
“F**k off,” Spiranac wrote in a tweet.

She followed it up, by posting: “Tag me next time you coward. My name is right there.”
When accused by a troll of letting herself be “dangled for male attention” while she flaunts her body, Spiranac responded: “I’m sorry I was born with t**s. I’m not going to hide them because your pea brain can’t comprehend the fact a woman can be smart, strong, and sexy.”
Earlier this year Spiranac hit out at the amount of criticism she attracts because of her body.
“It’s crazy I can be told I look too fat, too skinny, too plastic, too old, wearing too much makeup, not enough makeup, boobs too big, butt not big enough, too pale, hair too blonde, not blonde enough all in one day,” she tweeted in January.
“Guys it’s not a build a bear workshop over here. Calm it down.”
