Los Angeles, March 6: Pop star Sky Ferreira has been the target of a harassment campaign on the socialnetworking site and says she is “exhausted of people telling me how I should look or be”.
The 21-year-old has now called on anyone dealing with similar abuse to reach out to Facebook bosses to ensure online trolls are blocked from contacting them, reports contactmusic.com.
She wrote: “I’m exhausted of (more than some) people telling me how I should look or be if I want to be a ‘pop star’ and how they think it’s okay to say vile and (sexually) abusive s**t to me on a daily basis over the internet. I’m not only writing about myself…because almost every person has to deal with this. It’s a shame because I now feel like I can’t connect or directly speak with true fans. I’m not a mess, I’m not a drug addict, I’m not a s**t or a b**ch.
“Treating people like s**t because you feel like s**t doesn’t help anyone. If you see hateful/disgusting/abusive comments, please start reporting it or deleting it. I think that’s the only way we can start to lower that sort of thing from happening. Use the internet as a way to connect with others and learn. Show & spread compassion.”
