This is something that has been on my mind for a bit now. It´s a bit different to what I usually write, but It´s just something I wanted to give my opinion on. None of this means I´m accusing you.. I hope you can understand.
It started when RobynChristi (you may know her from my last post) posted this post on her blog about Kylie Jenner shaming. Then when I saw the series of Jimmy Kimmel “Mean Tweets” on YouTube, I was so shocked. It´s just not okay for people to insult whoever they want on Twitter that badly. Under a fake name, not risking facing the person face to face and getting punched (maybe).
When did people start thinking that they could insult anyone, anytime, anyhow on the internet?
When did people start thinking that there´s no one at the other end of their keyboard?
When did people start thinking they could shove their opinion onto how f**king stupid someone is into people’s faces without getting a reaction (in form of a punch..)?
When did people start thinking just because someone´s famous and on TV or the radio that they don’t have any feelings?
When did people start thinking that other people’s business is their business?
When did we let go of the “live and let live”?
Since the Internet existed? Since Twitter existed?
I´m just shocked at how awful people can be to one another. Maybe because they´re jealous. Maybe because they have problems themselves they can´t handle. Maybe because they need to let off steam. Maybe… not?
We´re not in the age where sinners would be set on a place and laughed at and hated upon. Are we?
I recently came across a video on YouTube…. I´m speachless… Just take a look yourself.
Disclaimer: This video doesn´t belong to me.
I am shocked.
Why do people write such cruel, unimportant, hurtful, rude, stupid things to somebody they do not know?
I just find that so sickening.
Nobody would like being called “fat”, “ugly” or “f**king stupid”, or told you are hated and you should “f**k off”, right? Yes, nobody.
I feel everyone should respect the golden rule: Treat others as you like to be treated. That includes not writing hurtful, rude and mean things to people you don´t know.
Everybody has the right to live the life they want. Nobody should be told that they are ugly or fat. Everyone is beautiful. Everyone is unique. Everybody deserves the same rights. And of course everybody has feelings, even celebrities like singers and actors. Because they are people, too.
