Famous People Who Suffered From Cyberbullying

More and more people get bad critics online just because they are famous. Cyberbullying on social media is happening to superstars who share all their daily lives there. For that reason, it would be useful for you to know the real definition of cyberbullying and how it differs from the actual bullying that happens every day during our interaction with others.

Computers and social media are the perfect places for someone to hide. Or so they think. Anonymity through social media accounts is a massive motive for most bullies to start harassing people by making bad comments about their appearance and their way of doing things.

By cyberbullying, we mean all these online behaviours appear as comments on social media or blog posts. These are initiated by bullies who don’t wish to reveal their real identities. Instead, they give their bad critics to others with the intention of gaining publicity through them and even spoiling famous people’s image and attitude.

Even though cyberbullies are harder to find and identify, being one is a crime and would incur several punitive measures when the police authorities finally catch you. Since cyberbullying takes a huge dimension due to the expansion of social media in every aspect of our modern life, it’s better to be careful and eliminate that trend.

Many celebrities have been victims of cyberbullying in recent years. Let’s check the cases of five worldwide known and reputable celebrities who have been suffering from cyberbullying and how they all managed to deal with it.

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez

When we are talking about Selena Gomez, you need to understand that she has one of the most popular and followed accounts on Instagram. She likes to post details about her life and videos from her live performances in front of her global audience. However, after a few years of frenzy in publicity, she started having several negative comments on her posts. She believes that the only way to deal with cyberbullies who become mean against her and post threatening or intimidating comments would be to become indifferent to their calls.

Selena Gomez decided to delete the Instagram app from her smartphone at least once per week to deal with bullies that come to her account on purpose to harass her. She believes that bullies are intelligent and mean persons who focus on things that Selena doesn’t like about herself. That makes their comments a lot more real for her and that could easily ruin her day when she just wants to have fun and read all the comments from the interactions with her audience.

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato

Demi is one of the most renowned singers with a worldwide presence. Her social media accounts are full of subscribers and fans who cry out for her posts. However, as Demi recently said during an interview, she finds it really annoying to have to delete certain comments from cyberbullies. These cyber bullies are there to criticize and mistakes she may have made on the stage. Additionally, they tend to become trolls and write bad comments about her dresses and everything that happens when she appears and performs as a singer.

Demi ignores and deletes all these comments. She believes that in the long run cyberbullies are toxic people that will end up being hurt from their own venom that is secreted through the internet. It would be better if everyone could enter social media without anonymity making things a lot better for performers who are always exposed to other people’s criticism and judgment without reason.

Emma Watson

Emma Watson

We all know Emma Watson from her legendary role in the Harry Potter movie series as Hermione. Even though she was done with acting in Harry Potter and entered college, she revealed that a cyberbully was uploading pictures of her with falsified face characteristics to insult her in front of her peers in the university.

Later in her career, Emma Watson managed to deal with cyberbullying when she created her first social media account (especially the one on Instagram). “She gained some weight, and cyberbullies started making fun of it online. It’s bad behavior that should all be against” she said about the trolls entering her accounts and criticizing her in a rude way.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift, the well-known Australian actress, has experienced cyberbullying ever since she was in high school. She said that other students were taking her pictures and falsifying them through special software to make her look less attractive.

When she finally became a world-class actress, there were several other trolls enrolled in her social media account and systematically writing bad comments about her performance for her appearance. She believes that cyberbullies are persons who have not received love and affection from their families.

Taylor Swift will be initiating a non-hate story for all these bullies to allow them to find help from experts and have no more bad or hating sentiments for others when being online. She believes that all people are good and that this goodness needs to find some incentive to get revealed.

Adele

Adele

Finally, Adele could be one of the most successful singers of our age. She admits that she has accepted a lot of vicious cyberbullying primarily because of her excessive weight. These extra pounds were always the reason for getting bad comments on her social media accounts. Adele admits that she also received cyberbullying when she finally lost that weight. It’s weird that cyberbullies will always find something bad to say, no matter what happens.

Conclusion

As we all know, being anonymous in front of a screen and a keyboard gives bad people a lot of incentives to reveal their vicious personalities and insult others. However, it’s better not to punish these people for their behavior, but to help them receive psychological treatment that will make them find wellness inside them.

Cyberbullying is among the top reasons for teenagers to commit suicide, and its vicious cycle should immediately stop.
