Joey recently suspended his Instagram account after hordes of trolls swarmed his “Transformation” picture that showed his progress in losing a whooping 210 pounds in the last year.

Instead of celebrating his success, hundreds of people posted mean and nasty comments on Joey’s picture, leading him to take his Instagram account offline.

Since then, however, hundreds of people have rallied to Joey, giving him his love and support.
