Gypsy Rose Blanchard, who was released from prison last year after pleading guilty to her involvement in her mother's murder, is apologizing for ghosting her fans on social media, admitting she "did a bad thing."

As you know, Gypsy was charged with second-degree murder for conspiring with her ex-boyfriend Nick Godejohn to kill her mother, Dee Dee, on June 9, 2015, following years of abuse.

Gypsy Rose is believed to be a victim of Munchausen syndrome by proxy, which is a psychological disorder where the caretaker either makes up fake symptoms or causes real symptoms to make it look like the child is sick to get charity or sympathy.

Because of this, many people are rallying behind Gypsy, showing their support and appreciation for her. However, Gypsy recently ghosted those fans as she deleted her Instagram and X profiles without any warning.
