The ability to comment freely, and anonymously, on the Internet has given rise to . . .
. . . I'm not quite sure what, but, it appears to be bullying.
Recently, Renee Zellweger appeared at some event looking remarkably different. Now, all the news outlets are posting a picture of her from about 15 years ago alongside the current picture of her.
HELLO! Of course somebody is going to change in appearance from 15 years ago. Not to mention . . . the lighting is different, the angle is different, she's lost weight, she's smiling differently . . . and so many other things. So . . .
HELOO! Of course she looks different.
But, alas, that's not the point of this post. The point is the negative - she looks horrible, she's Jennifer Grey 2.0, why has she let herself go - comments.
Why do people feel the need to toss negative comments out? Why do they feel the Internet gives them free reign to be hateful/negative towards people . . . they don't even know?
So Renee looks different. She's healthy. She's happy. That's should be the beginning, middle and end of the story, except . . .
. . . the people who just feel the need to disparage people they don't know.
Hopefully, Renee doesn't read the comments. She's heard about them, though, and her response . . . I'm happy and healthy. Good for her.
So, my comment to people that feel the need to be so hateful/negative towards people you don't know: get a life. Look in your own mirror and tell yourself . . .
OMG, I look hideous!
I look horrible!
Plastic surgery gone bad!
I'm Jennifer Grey 2.0!
Or, better yet, post a picture of yourself and let others post negative and hateful comments about that picture and . . .
. . . see how you feel!
Silence is golden and . . .
. . . if you can't comment something nice, why not try not commenting at all. The world might just be a better place.
