‘These people online have been calling me fat since I was about nine years old,’ she raged.

‘I was nine, crying, because people were calling me fat… [what the f**k]. That’s 12 years of me having to see people comment about my body.

‘It’s such a shame that I’ve had to learn not to give a f**k instead of people having to learn to be nice.’

Melbourne-based Dhakota went on to say that she was proud of her curves. 

‘Sorry we’re built like f***ing women around here, not prepubescent children like some of these weirdos want you to look like,’ she wrote.

‘Women have thighs, hips, boobs, and are built in all different shapes and sizes.’

The brunette finished by saying that ‘body shaming in 2022 is not cool’ and she’s thankful that it no longer bothers her like it once did.

Dhakota, whose mother is gangland widow Roberta Williams, regularly shares sultry images of herself on Instagram and has amassed almost 40,000 followers.

'It's such a shame that I've had to learn not to give a f**k instead of people having to learn to be nice,' she wrote to her almost 40,000 followers

She was nine years old when her father, drug kingpin Carl Williams, was bludgeoned to death at Barwon Prison by fellow inmate Matthew Charles Johnson in 2010.

Carl was a key figure in Melbourne’s infamous gangland war, which claimed the lives of 36 criminal figures between 1998 and 2010.

He was jailed for 35 years in 2007 for ordering the murders of three rivals, and more time for conspiring to kill a fourth.

'Women have thighs, hips, boobs, and are built in all different shapes and sizes,' the 21-year-old told her followers

His death in 2010 followed an investigation revealing Victoria Police was paying $8,000 per year for his daughter’s school fees.

It was later revealed Carl was an informant and had given information regarding a handful of unsolved murder investigations.

He wrote several long letters to his wife and others from jail in the months before he was murdered, which have since been made into a book titled Life Sentence.

Dhakota spoke fondly about her father on Channel Seven’s Sunday Night program in 2016.

‘We know our dad as our dad, not what he’s described as in the newspapers… so we know him as fun and loving and caring for us, and always made us happy,’ she said.

‘If you spoke to him and got to know him, you’d think he’s not that sort of person, like, and you can tell he did it for his family ’cause he was all for us, all for us family.’

‘It was just normal for me, that’s all I really knew.’
