There is something about a keyboard and an internet connection that gives many of us the ability to say things to a person that we would never say to their face. Vicous and hateful comments seem par for the course now for many bloggers.
Em Ford of My Pale Skin has hit back against the hateful comments left on her blog after she began posting videos of herself without makeup.
Comments like “WTF is wrong with her face?”, “Revolting”, I can’t even look at her” and “You look disgusting.”
Instead of just ignoring the comments Em decided to confront them head on with a video that takes a shot at the expectations placed apon those in the public eye. “As a society, we’re so used to seeing false images of perfection and comparing ourselves to unrealistic beauty standards,” she said. “It can be hard to remember the most important thing — you ARE beautiful.”
