Madison Beer has had enough of online hate and is asking people to be more mindful of what they put online.
This week, she took to Twitter to share her feelings writing: “please think before you speak and be intentional with your words…….. please.”
When people in the replies asked her what was going on she said:
“tw // nah i jus opened tik tok for the first time in a bit & saw a video of myself and in the comments was being dragged so disgustingly…like saying i should kill myself n sh*t it’s just too much & seeing how some people conduct themselves on the internet makes me very sad,” she wrote.
“It’s so aggressive and seeing how heartless people can be is something i’ll never get used to and i’ll always speak up because it should not be normalized to talk about people this way i’m sorry.”
She added: “it’s so aggressive and seeing how heartless people can be is something i’ll never get used to and i’ll always speak up because it should not be normalized to talk about people this way i’m sorry”
When fans and followers reached out to share their support, Madison said she would be okay but wanted to use this as an example of how nasty people can get.
“i’ll be okay,” she wrote in another tweet. “hurt and saddened a bit. but i’ll be okay, just please if you’re reading this be mindful with what you say about people. life is too short to be so reckless with your words.”
Madison makes a good point. It doesn’t matter how famous or well-known a person is, no one should be nasty or hurtful to another person. Some people may think that if you’re famous or have a lot of followers these words don’t hurt, but of course, there is still a human behind big accounts and famous personas.
It’s so much easier and better for everyone if we practice kindness first online and in the real world.
