Since the news emerged that UK trolls could be facing jail time under new legal guidelines, we decided to take a look at the public figures who receive abuse on their social media platforms and how they deal with it.
According to The Dish, Kim K spoke about receiving hate in an interview with close friend Jonathon Cheban, explaining,
“I personally take the high road most of the time. Like, I just don’t care. So, I always think, ‘Will I be affected by this tomorrow? Will I be affected by it in a week? Will I be affected in a month, or in a year?’ And usually, the answer is no.”
Chrissy recently made her Twitter profile private, a while ago she tweeted “whenever people say they hate me i get sad but then i realize i hate a s–t ton of people i don’t know.” She got heated about the tweets regarding Kim Kardashian being robbed and then made her account private. When people questioned her, she said “Yeah. Not strong enough anymore.”
“It’s not haters or trolls or generally mean people,” she continued in a separate tweet. “I just feel like I am absorbing things 24/7. My body and mind cannot handle it anymore.”
Jennifer Lopez told Glamour that she has to believe in herself in order for the hate comments to not take their toll.
“I always joke about letting the haters motivate you. Everybody has that in their life, people who doubt them or make them feel less than they are. It just takes faith and belief in yourself, and you’ve got to dig deep into that. That has to come from you—nobody’s going to give you that.”
On the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Anne Hathaway discussed how she finally learned to let go of the hater’s comments:
“If you don’t love yourself when someone else says horrible things to you, part of you is always going to believe them … I feel like I’ve arrived in a place where maybe not every minute of every day, but way more than I used to, I have a tremendous amount of love and compassion for everyone else—and best of all, I have it for myself.”
Last year, singer and actress Zendaya walked the red carpet with her hair in dreadlocks.
Although stars are used to having their red carpet looks talked about, when Giuliana Rancic claimed Zendaya’s hairstyle looked like it smelled of ‘weed’, Zendaya took a stand. Instead of lashing out, Zendaya took to her Instagram to call out the comments, in a clear, concise and well-thought out response.
