Fight those trolls

Growing up in the age of social media can be incredibly hard for teenagers. There are more and more bullies these days, thus more and more victims. Kids are made fun on Facebook, rumors spread about them on Twitter, and people are harassed on Instagram, all for the world to see. There are different types of trolls, but one that is prominent with young people are body shamers.

Some people think all women should be “perfect” like a Victoria’s Secret Angels. Trolls hide behind their computers and waste their days making fun of women (and men) about their physical appearance. And celebrities in the public eye get the worst of it. Take Modern Family star Ariel Winter for example; but she’s not taking the abuse lying down.
