How many times have you thought to yourself ‘I look terrible today!’? How would you feel if you were brave enough to put up a video of yourself on YouTube and people told you that they thought you looked disgusting? One beauty blogger did just that and the comments she has received, you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy.
This is one video that everyone needs to see, it’s strong, it’s powerful and it’s real. Beauty blogger Em Ford, recently posted this video to her YouTube channel shaming commenters who had taunted her. The comments are unbelievably hurtful and it has a profound impact on Em Ford as you can see in this clip.
Em has released this video to promote the message of ‘you are beautiful, no matter what’ and it’s one message I am certainly going to be sharing with my two little girls.
The part of this video that throws me the most is the fact that even when Em has a full face of make-up there are still haters out there, saying nasty hurtful comments. It seems that no matter what you do, there will always be an army of ‘keyboard warriors’ who can sit in the comfort of their own homes, hiding behind their computers, tablets and phones abusing people who are MUCH braver than them. At what point does this despicable behavior start to spill out into the ‘real’ world?
When did society become so nasty and hateful? How on earth am I going to equip my children to deal with nastiness like this? SHARE your thoughts with us in the comments below.
