In the message that she typed for her Instagram, it had gratitude for everyone who reached out to her.

Here is what Shotzi had to say about her torn ACL

She posted, “I tore my ACL which means I will be out of action for about 9 months. Thank you to everyone who has checked up on me. I am so sorry if I haven’t responded. I am just extremely devastated and angry. Some of you know, I have been through a lot the last few years and it has been so hard to keep up with what I think is expected of me and honestly my mental health had been at an all time low.”

However, she also pledged that she will be turning the tide around, citing her sister’s heroic resistance against cancer and she also said that she will be battling all guns blazing and when she returns, there will be no stopping her.
