'I don't entertain them': Instagram model Pia Muehlenbeck refuses to engage with trolls who try and antagonise her online
Pia, who has gained an impressive following through posting often scantily-clad photos of herself while travelling, told the magazine she tries not to feed negativity.
'I don't get a lot of those [sorts of] comments - I think that's because I don't entertain them,' she explained.
'I think most people who are writing things like that are just looking for a response. They are just trying to antagnoise and I just don't engage in it at all.'
But fortunately the busty brunette rarely encountered trolls, with the majority of her followers posting 'heart-warming' comments.

However, longtime fans would be forgiven for not recognising the former Gold Coast lawyer-turned-travel blogger, as she looked very different compared to photos from her early modelling career.
Pia, who appears to have embraced a more wholesome image in recent years, had previously posed topless on the cover of a Danish men's magazine.
She looked remarkably different in the European photo shoot, with her lips and eyebrows both appearing much thinner than they do today.¬†

'I work more hours now than I did as a lawyer. When it's your own business, it's really hard to figure out when to switch off,' she explained.
Pia also gave credit to her partner Kane Vato, who had helped launch and maintain her lucrative online profile.
'I'm lucky we are such a social media-obsessed world right now,' she said. 'Being in the right place at the right time is a big part of it. But also, Kane and I are both very business-minded.'¬†
'While our friends were out on a Sunday having cocktails, we would be out creating content.'¬†
