'Teen Mom' alum Farrah Abraham, who was recently arrested for an alleged altercation with the hotel staff at a Beverly Hills resort, claims that the hotel incident was blown out of proportion and she was made to feel like she was targeted just because she's a celebrity.

“I chose this life and I handle being targeted as a public figure & public punching bag,” Abraham wrote in a public Instagram post after she was released from jail post her arrest

“ALL is Fair In Farrah’s world I will never believe the lies that people need to sell to make a dollar off me,” she continued. “Happy it’s all recorded and documented as I should never feel unsafe and be targeted at a hotel I’m staying at … The Beverly Hills hotel truly allowed misconduct by staff to a paying guest.”

She went on to rant about her horrible experience at the hotel, and said, "There’s no need for me or anyone else to be treated this way."

The former adult entertainer also took a jibe at the Beverly Hills police officials, saying that they should be more concerned about saving the community from serious crimes like robberies and stealing, rather than look for cases to sell off to gossip publications.

Abraham wrote, "The Beverly Hills Police officers should stop having power trips and lying and selling stories to publications, while you let all of Beverly Hills be robbed, car break-ins, stealing go on... focus on really protecting the public and doing good for Beverly Hills instead of creating made up problems."

This statement from the star comes after TMZ released a video from Abraham's arrest which shows her berating officers after the incident. In the explosive video, she's seen saying, “If you want to f***ing bulls*** me and if you want to act like I’m not a real adult, go f*** yourself and go f*** your self and go f*** yourself,” she said. “It’s pathetic. … Where am I battering anyone? … I did not attack or batter or hurt or injure anyone.”

“You want to do that on camera so everybody at TMZ can see and everybody else can see that you’re going through my freaking bag?” she continued.

Abraham was arrested on charges of misdemeanor battery and trespassing pursuant to a private person’s arrest and booked at the Beverly Hills Jail on $500 bail. However, according to her Instagram post, she was let off with "no charges & no jail time."

Soon after her arrest, Abraham had spoken about the incident, and in her comment which came from her representatives, she said, that she will “return” and continue to focus on her businesses and her daughter, which is her “#1 priority.”

“Please remember, there are two sides to every story,” the rep assured, also thanking fans for their “concern.”
