Farrah Abraham blasts authorities after release from jail: I was targeted because I'm a celebrity!

Farrah Abraham is not taking responsibility for her Wednesday arrest at The Beverly Hills Hotel -- at all.
The former Teen Mom OG star is insisting she was the real victim in the situation, as she was targeted because of her celebrity.
Farrah was accused of striking a security guard and showing signs of intoxication with guests and police at the hotel, and TMZ obtained a video of the reality TV star yelling "go f-ck yourself" to surrounding officers and demanding they stop "provoking" her before her arrest.
Shortly after Farrah was released from jail on Wednesday, she told TMZ that people had it out for her and the phone call made to police was entirely unnecessary.
"I really think this was blown way out of proportion. It's a very simple situation. I was just targeted -- things are made up. I can handle it; it is fine. My family, my friends, everyone who was there helped me," Farrah told the website in a statement.
"I don't know who called the cops or why people called the cops. It wasn't necessary. I was focused on my friends and then someone was trying to get involved -- another guest. I don't know if the guest was intoxicated. I don't even know who he even is or what he even looks like."
Authorities previously alleged Farrah hit a security guard in the face with her forearm, grabbed his ear and pushed his head after he asked the reality TV star to leave because she had gotten into an argument with some hotel guests in the Polo Lounge.
"I don't even want to speak about them, but I'm being targeted and I deal with that the best way that I can. I hope another female doesn't find herself in this position or situation. I know it's very hard being a public figure or 'celebrity' if you will, I'm not even about that, but that's what happens when you are targeted and people use that against you," Farrah explained.
"I mean, I was a guest of the hotel and stay there often, even for my daughter's birthday. So, nothing new, I was a guest... So yeah, it's all sorted out and I'm sorry this was blown out of proportion. I just need to focus on my work and my projects."
Farrah has insisted she did not injure or hurt anyone at the hotel.
The 27-year-old's representative, Elizabeth Lloyd, also told Us Weekly in a Wednesday statement: "This situation has been blown out of proportion. Farrah has not been charged and was released... A misunderstanding occurred and there was no battery or trespassing. Farrah is the hardest working individual I know and sets very high standards for herself."

Elizabeth continued, "She has been working on a number of deadlines for new projects and business ventures; she is immaculate in her work ethic and pushes herself harder than her team recommends sometimes."
Farrah's representative concluded, "[She] is a powerhouse and was having a business meeting in the hotel where the alleged incident happened. She is a very sweet and ambitious young woman who has been portrayed in a biased light on a reality television studios."
Farrah -- who found fame when she appeared on an episode of 16 & Pregnant -- is mom to nine-year-old daughter Sophia and occasionally films pornographic content and videos.
