Nothing euphoric about this.

“Euphoria” star Sydney Sweeney took to Instagram Live for a tearful confessional Saturday after a Twitter troll mocked her appearance, calling her a “Muppet” and “ugly.”

“Apparently I am trending on Twitter right now for being ugly,” Sweeney begins the clip.”I think it’s really important for people to see how words actually affect people,” she continues.

“I know everyone says, ‘You can’t read things,’ and ‘you shouldn’t read things,’ but like, I’m a f–king person!,” the 23-year-old actress adds through tears in the video. “I’m just sitting here with my dog Tink watching HGTV wearing my Snuggie …”

“People need to be nicer on social media,” she closed the short clip, which was flooded with supportive comments from fans, by saying, “because this is really f–ked up.”

“Here I’m gonna FORCE y’all to look at her with no boobs,” the original tweet, posted Saturday afternoon, read. The “conversation” around the post predictably devolved from there, though by Sunday morning, they’d tweeted, “I even forgot what the tweet said they calling me a Trump supporter and mean girl over this.”

Sweeney plays high schooler Cassie Howard on HBO’s Zendaya-starring “Euphoria.”

“I grew up in a smaller town with my family, who are a little more conservative, and I was like, ‘They’re going to kill me if I do something like this,’” she told Stylecaster of landing the role on the drugs-and-sex-laden show.

“Euphoria” paused production after its first season when the pandemic hit Hollywood. In April, “Euphoria” actor Eric Dane mentioned to Deadline that the show had begun production on its second season.
