Karin Bauman passed away on Tuesday after a long battle with anorexia, accompanied by frequent social media sharing by her mother, Yehudit, who cared for her with devotion. The news of her death at the age of just 35 touched online influencers, artists and opinion leaders, many of whom wanted to see her tragic story as a warning light for girls and young boys who develop eating disorders.
"Blessed be the Dayan of truth. Very sad. Heartfelt condolences to Yehudit and my dear Shimi," Dana Ron pained. "And in her death she commanded every man and woman, boy and girl, to love what they were and who they were. May she rest in peace," wrote reality TV veteran Omri Ben Natan. "Years of war between the head and the soul, and the soul won," noted "Big Brother" refugee Merav Israel. "My heart is broken, how sad," grieved model Eden Pines.
"Very sad. For years she dealt with this serious disease," added sports broadcaster Rotem Israel. "Ugh. This life is so short to screw up accounts for others and why people think of us. Love yourself, reflect to those around you what is difficult for you, and live this life, just live," advised comedian and actor Orel Sabri.
Corinne Gideon sought to convey a message to the opinion leaders. "Heartbreaking, really. And if there's a little thing you can take away from it, it's to act responsibly here on the networks, to set a healthy example for girls." "How sad. How I hoped for a different ending," shared Danit Greenberg. "After a long battle with anorexia, Karin Bowman passed away at the age of 35. Such a sad ending. And maybe it's an ending that might explain to a lot of girls and young girls how dangerous it is to pursue a beauty model that doesn't exist," hoped news anchor Maggie Avivi.

"Karin Bauman's story is the story of our generation. We have grown to strive for thinness at all costs. I also remember starving myself just so that at the new school they wouldn't laugh at me for being 'under a suitcase.' Luckily, over the years, I've realized that I look my best when I train, and that food is an active partner in the perfect body I want," Maayan Adam clarified. "I learned not to avoid food, but the opposite. The solution I found was to turn food from enemy to friend," she shared.
