Cyberbullying is a constant battle. Besides your garden variety online trolls, there are cyberbullies who can damage kids’ self-esteem.
“Teen Mom OG” star Farrah Abraham says her daughter, Sophia, is ahead of the game, and will simply ignore the trolls who cross her path.
Abraham says social-media sites should also bear the brunt of the responsibility.
“I feel like Instagram, Facebook [and] the social-media platforms need to be held responsible for allowing negative, ugly, disgusting comments like that,” Abraham says.
Abraham says her daughter knows how to handle those who post negative comments online:
“I really think Sophia has learned about cyberbullying at a very early age, so she’s already ahead of being traumatized or being affected or being depressed about those things which many other kids get affected by. … I leave up, and I do not block the negativity. I let it be known and be shown.”
Abraham continues the fight against trolls daily, including her latest 9/11 blunder that was exposed in a YouTube video.
“OK, so we wanted to do, since it’s gonna be September 11, in honor of the Freedom Towers, and observatory deck and everything, of 7-Eleven, we are going to do this. Wow, look at this guys,” she says in the video, which she also posted on her Instagram page.
Abraham’s intentions were true, but yeah, that was kind of a big blunder. True to what she says, Abraham has left the post up, letting the negativity speak for itself.
