Cyberbullying & Thank you!
Wow, I had a tough week you guys! You might have seen my Bollywood look from last Monday- well it backfired enormously. I have gotten on Facebook many hateful comments for this look and was told that I would disrespect the Indian culture and such. Bad language was used and I was even told to kill myself. I deleted so many of those hateful comments but at one point decided, I need to leave these comments up because this was cyberbullying! One girl started this whole mess and she was using my photo on Facebook groups and shouting out lies about me (that I am a racist and such).
Cyberbullying is illegal!
Here is what to do when you are cyberbullied:
- Don’t respond to and don’t forward cyberbullying messages.
- Keep evidence of cyberbullying. Record the dates, times, and descriptions of instances when cyberbullying has occurred. Save and print screenshots, emails, and text messages. Use this evidence to report cyberbullying to web and cell phone service providers.
- Block the person who is cyberbullying.
If you are ever in a situation like me- check out this website: http://www.stopbullying.gov
Well, since I uploaded on Friday my video below, these people stopped with their hatred. I don´t know if it was because of my video (and I called them out for cyberbullying) or because one of my friends reported each and every one to Facebook (Thank you Joy!!!).
Crazy thing is, most of these comments did not come from Indian girls- hence I have a whole group of Indian girls that came to me and told me that they have no problem with this look whatsoever. There is some complete other kind of racism involved. If you read "between" the lines, you will see it for yourself. Hint: "Now she comes with her white tears". "She should stay in her privileged lane". None of these people were BTW any of my followers.
But my main reason for writing this post is: I am so overwhelmed by all the Love and support I received from all of you on my YouTube video! THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH! I appreciate your supportive comments, emails and messages that I received from you so very much!
I LOVE YOU ALL!!!
