At some point, everyone has to fend off haters and critics online. High-profile people are mostly affected by this. They have to deal with hate and criticisms on the web. Unfortunately, common etiquette has died a ghastly death only to be replaced by vitriolic flame wars and heartless trolls. Also, sad to say that cyberbullying and online bashing are among the top reasons why some teenagers commit suicide nowadays. People who are weak and can’t deal with their negative comments are commonly affected by this.
Recently, I got bashed online and honestly, I felt so down reading all their negative comments. As much as possible I just don’t want to open my Facebook account that time, so I won’t be able to read all those nasty things they throw at me which is not even true. It’s funny how other sites write articles about it just to get likes.
Well, actually at first it was just for fun and we didn’t think that it would become trending.
