Youtuber My Pale Skin created a short film that depicts a woman who stripped her face of makeup and posted ‘makeup-less’ photo’s of herself on social media. The idea behind the film was to show how social media can set unrealistic expectations on both women and men. The film brings awareness to individual’s who live with severe facial acne.
For three months over 100,000 comments were placed on photo’s of her face. Most of them, were severely hurtful, rude and incredibly mean. It wasn’t until this beautiful woman decided to post pictures of herself wearing make-up that the comments turned from negative into positive ones. However, despite the influx in positive comments, negative comments were still posted. People feeling fooled by her appearance and stating that she was truly ugly and that is why she has to wear make-up.
What a sad, sad society we live in. It always amazed me at how hurtful people can be for no reason. There simply seems to be a certain level of hatred in certain peoples hearts.
