23-year-old nurse in Taiwan hits back at criticism for sexy selfies: 'You're just jealous'

A 23-year-old nursing professional in Taipei is making waves online with her sizzling selfies, earning herself both fans and critics.

With 144,000 followers on Instagram, Carina Linn usually posts photos showing herself in her uniform, in a bikini or trying on various revealing outfits in fitting rooms.

One picture that garnered much attention was of Linn going hiking -- clad in a bikini top and denim shorts.

Although she has won many smitten fans who praise her beauty and good figure, detractors have also slammed her for her provocative image.

She recently posted a picture of herself in her nursing uniform and hit back at the criticism.

Linn wrote, "Firstly, I have already left Min-Sheng General Hospital for some time (don't ask where I am working at anymore).

"My profession is still a full-time nurse as before. I am a nurse, a nurse who does shifts at a hospital. I am not a model or a photographer. Even more so, I'm not taking pictures because I'm trying to be famous.

"I am me, I do things that make me feel happy, I don't think that I am anything special or extraordinary, I am just someone leading an ordinary life.

"Moreover, you should not have any opinions about me. Why? Because I am serious about work and I am serious about life.

"You are just miserably behind your screen, being jealous that other people's lives are more fulfilling than yours.

"So basically, you -- who have accomplished nothing in life -- say things that are the same as what's inside your brain... they are all rubbish."
