H A T E R S. G O N N A. H A T E? well, I’m not havin’ it. ✋
And, neither is Ashton Kutcher.
Thanks so much, Ashton, for featuring the #KissAndMakeup anti-bullying campaign with Bystander Revolution & Tarte Cosmetics – and the small part I play in it – on your Aplus site and social media channels today.
Taking a stand against cyberbullying and cruelty is a no-brainier for me, and many of you out there. But, that’s not the case across the board, unfortunately.
Ironically enough – and, basically proving the point of the whole campaign – there are negative, bully-style comments below the picture on Ashton’s Facebook page. 😒
When will it stop?
When we MAKE it stop.
Tell your friends.
Teach your children.
Share with your teachers.
Send love when you can to those who need it.
Defend those who are defenseless.
And, take a stand.
Yes, even if it’s just on social media.
Especially on social media.
The power of social media is just that: POWER.
It can remind people that there are people behind the pictures. While it’s true that haters are gonna hate, it’s also true that that hate is usually rooted in something much deeper and much darker.
I truly believe that if we drown all that hate in loads of love, those haters aren’t gonna be hatin’ for long. Love is just too powerful a potion for them not to drink. 🙌
