This is a skit on Jimmy Kimmel I found particularly profound as I’ve been meaning to write something on “adult cyberbullying” for some time now. Yes, it’s true, bullying doesn’t affect you quite the same way when you’re older, as you’re no longer at an impressionable age. But the fact is, it still sucks. Writing online, I’ve heard every personal insult in the book, and reading even one “you’re a horrible writer/individual/looking person” can really ruin your day.
But I have it easy compared to someone who is actually famous. It’s ASTONISHING how much venom people love spewing at celebrities for seemingly no reason at all. Selena Gomez will post a picture of her dog on Instagram and she’ll have fifty comments calling her a slut.
That’s why I like what Kimmel’s done here. He has the celebrities themselves reading the mean things people say about them on Twitter. Even if you’re rich and famous, I’m betting it gets to them sometimes. It gets to me.
