Brandi Rhodes took to her Twitter today to speak out against what she is calling a strong climate of hate on social media.
Brandi would reveal that she receives many death threats and other horrible personal attacks before calling into question why it would be seen as beneath her and other celebrities to defend themselves:
The climate of hate is SO strong. It’s so sad. Social media is just flooded with hate and people wishing others would fail, die or likely both. Scary how bitter people have become to spew such vile things. I feel bad and sad for humanity. Disappointing world to be apart of.
I get death threats and hate spewed at me daily. I’m not alone. If you have a blue check you are just preyed upon for no reason. You can’t even defend yourself because “you’re better than that”. Better than everyone?! Is that why we are treated this way?
In another example of hate culture on social media, Renee Young also had to stand up for herself today against fans bashing her Raw commentary skills.
