Oh Those Haters
I don’t think I’ve ever made a video or a post addressing haters. It’s not that I hate them. I don’t. In a way, we were all haters once and not only on YouTube. You know, once in a while I secretly hope this one person fails so that I would get noticed. It is human nature no matter how horrible that may have sounded. Most of us grow out of it and sometimes it creeps up on us when we least expect it. However there are those people who just can’t help but hate on other people’s success. I understand if it was a bad day and you just made a snide remark without actually meaning it. But there are others who are just plain mean and there is no reason to be. Let me just focus on YouTube for a second. The amount of hate comments one person can get on YouTube is ridiculous. Sometimes the comments do not even make the least bit of sense. I say, why don’t we just get along and if you don’t like something, just ignore it and move on. People make comments on hair, body weight, makeup, what they buy and a host of other things. Bringing someone down through YouTube comments could be seen as bullying. Others even go as far as to make a website just to hate on famous YouTubers (MichellePhan for example). The internet is an amazing place for creativity but it also has its ugly side. There’s really nothing we can do about it. Brushing it off is the best thing to do in this case.
