Sending you Love. You have such a beautiful Spirit,” one fan wrote.

Another added, “Cheryl you are loved by so many of us. Don’t let anything or anyone make you feel bad. Keep your head up high everything will be ok.”

In January, Burke used social media to open up to fans about her own experience with sexual abuse while applauding the women who came forward with accusations about former Team USA doctor Larry Nassar.

She wrote:

I’ve been following what has happened with the US women’s gymnastics team and I wanted to take a minute to commend these young women for sharing their stories. I too have had to sit in a court room in front of the man who sexually abused me, and share my experiences. I [know] that what you are doing is not easy – it takes tremendous courage. Thank you for breaking the silence and showing other women that they too can stand up for themselves and for others.

In the caption, she added, “#metoo.”
