I love famous people. I follow all of the Kardashians (minus Kris), most of the cast of Vanderpump Rules, comedians, actors, musicians, and plenty of other celebs on Instagram. I enjoy being in their business. It entertains me.
OBVIOUSLY I am not one of those weird people who defends celebrities on social media platforms or in any other scenario. This is a personal vice for me and I am not affected by the way other people feel about it.
There is this weird semi-famous person behavior that I’ve noticed, though, that has been seriously bothering me.
I follow Chrissy Teigen on Insta, she’s a model who’s married to John Legend. Sometimes she’s funny and I like her hair, so it’s good to have her easily accessible. She poses for Sports Illustrated frequently, which is whatever to me, but she’ll post pictures of her spreads and then get CRAZY upset when people post negative comments.
Look, I am not a troll- I’m into empowering other women and I don’t care if your nipples are showing. This has nothing to do with that. I just find it super odd for someone to be like, “Ok I’m going to post a naked picture of myself and people are only allowed to say nice things!!!!”
This isn’t gender specific at all. I think the public eye is a dangerous place- but this is YOUR Instagram, these are YOUR personal choices. What kind of human makes an individual choice and then tells other people how they have to react to it? That makes zero sense to me.
Like, yeah I guess in a perfect world we could all post pictures of ourselves naked and strangers would just be like “You look great!”- but what kind of fucking fantasy are you living in? Even my mom has called me out for my cellulite. I got over it.
One of my Vanderpump favorites, Jax Taylor’s Instagram bio reads: “All negative comments will be deleted and you will be blocked”. Um….OK?! So you just get to post personal pictures at free will to the general public and our only responses are allowed to be nice? What is happening in your brain? I am so curious.
I have NEVER commented on a famous person’s social media- negative or positive- I don’t give a shit about them! I just want to see what they’re wearing and what their hair looks like and if they’re funny and you know, what they’re up to this weekend. However, if someone wants to write: “you look like a fat loser” I think they should be able to- I mean….what if you kinda do look like a fat loser? You don’t even want to know?
I think that’s just a weird way to go through life- only accepting positive reinforcement. I don’t think that’s how people become successful. I mean…isn’t that why all the Vanderpump Rules people are still in the service industry and banging each other? Maybe they NEED more people to make fun of them so they’ll finally throw their hands up and be like SCREW THIS I’M GONNA BUY SOME STOCK IN APPLE!!! Or something. I don’t know.
Everyone gets made fun of at some point. Everyone has been criticized. What ever happened to thick skin?! I’m not encouraging bullying, but come on! I know ignorance is bliss, but you can’t just create this weird “go you!” planet where no one ever tells you when you have love handles.
Am I alone on this? Am I not PC enough?! Shit. Don’t write anything mean!!
