PAMELA Anderson has branded social media as a “playground for shamers”.
The 51-year-old beauty took to Twitter on Thursday to post a lengthy rant against people who make “swift and damaging remarks” online, and said the way in which some users “hurt” others with their words on social media shows how “people are un-evolving”.
In a series of tweets, the Baywatch star wrote, “This social media world is a playground for shamers. It takes no thought or time to hurt people. People are “un-evolving” and less and less mature to think about or consider their swift and damaging remarks.
“The damage is done in a typed message in a private space – a bedroom, bathroom basement, desk or train – who knows? and It takes only seconds – the bully on the playground is multiplied by thousands – There is little privacy – no parenting – no teaching in this area.”
Pamela then continued by saying it would be a “waste of energy” to respond to hateful comments spread by trolls online, and says she’s learned “not to look” at what people say about her.
She added, “While we all read our comments and are happy when we receive praise and devastated when someone is mean. And we want to defend ourselves. It’s a waste of energy to engage – it would be a full time job.
“I prefer not to look. But I’ve learnt that then (even back then) – your image can get away from you. It can negatively effect your career.
“Nobody is a cartoon character. We all have imperfect lives, pasts, things we’re embarrassed of or want to remain private.”
The blonde beauty closed her message by publicly defending Modern Family actress Ariel Winter, who is often the subject of online criticism in regards to her body. – BANG!
