“I was standing, and he was sitting,” she explained a year after the incident, “he literally just sprung up. And he was literally, hanging — literally like arms, legs hanging off of my lip. And my first instinct was like, ‘Oh my God, get on the ground with him, hold his head, go wherever he goes.'”
She added, “Finally, I felt a release. And then, something flew and hit the wall.”
Since the attack, Brooklinn has been open about her experience and recently recalled being scared about her injuries shortly after it happened.
“I wrote this a few months after I got into the attack, ‘I don’t expect anyone to understand because how could you,'” she began her Dec. 12 Instagram. “I don’t know how to explain the way that I feel when I look in the mirror. It’s as if I’m a stranger, embodied in someone I’ve known before. She’s somewhat familiar, but carries herself differently. I look up at myself and I see someone who has been patched up, to cover a mistake that should never have happened. I see someone who’s exhausted from having to explain herself, to a society that’s infatuated by perfection. She is someone who’s trying to love what she sees but she’s scared of what she is seeing.'”
