It seems Michaella's big crime is being a strong and pretty young woman

Michaella McCollum committed a serious offence - but managing to endure nearly three years in the Peruvian prison system without turning into a haggard crone seems to be her biggest crime, as far as some people are concerned.
There is a perception out there that McCollum got off lightly. Having been caught trying to smuggle nearly €2m of cocaine from Peru to Spain in August 2013, she emerged from jail last week looking fit and attractive. This seems to be problematic for some.
On Sunday night, McCollum was subjected to a level of vitriol on social media that would suggest she is currently public enemy number one.
