Victoria Larson has been called out as a bully

So, I heard that's you, King Matt."

But getting arrested for stealing makeup and more at a Publix and spending two days in jail isn't a regal look!

The bullied contestant threw shade at Victoria on Instagram. Sarah shared an image with the words, "Real queens fix each other's crowns," with a caption that appears to be aimed right at Victoria. Trott's Instagram caption read: "We see the quote 'women supporting women' all the time on the internet but what does that really mean? To me, it means sharing encouragement instead of judgment."
