It’s no secret that social media has made the world smaller and more judgmental. There are always some individuals who cross the line. Instead of minding their business, they began meddling with others.
Regardless of harsh comments on her looks, Melissa claps back at the haters.
In the digital age of vulnerability, social anxiety has taken a toll on the users of social media. Melissa Blake was born with a rare genetic bone and muscular disorder called Freeman-Sheldon Syndrome. She’s a freelance writer, and blogger from Illinois who faced a backlash on a tweet expressing her political opinions, and some trolls decided to take the matter into their own hands by attacking her appearance.
While many people turn off from the platform after coming across such nasty insults, Melissa fought back by posting a selfie with her picture on Twitter.
The tweet went viral and it wasn’t late before celebrities join in her fight. Furthermore, the creative and talented writer Melisa got an offer from the BBC for an interview. And also an email from a book publisher.
During the last round of trollgate, people said that I should be banned from posting photos of myself because I’m too ugly. So I’d just like to commemorate the occasion with these 3 selfies… 📸😉👋🏻 pic.twitter.com/9ZuSYFOtwv
