An Open Letter To Internet Bullies via BLUNTmoms

This week I had the pleasure of writing a post for the fabulous website, BLUNTmoms, regarding internet bullying, which has become an issue near and dear to my heart. I’ve included a short sample of the piece, but please do stop by and check it out by clicking the link at the bottom of the page. I’d love to hear your feedback!


Another week, another news story about someone saying something idiotic and having the Internet come down on them like the hammer of Thor. While there are plenty of examples to choose from, my new favorite celebrity turned Internet punching bag is Britt McHenry, the ESPN reporter who verbally bitch-slapped a clerk at an Atlanta towing company last month on camera. It wasn’t that she did it, but rather how she did it, with plenty of bragging about her status, a little weight shaming, and some uncomfortable usage of the phrase “baby girl” that really seemed to ignite a full on Internet shit storm.

  1. I really don’t feel sorry for her….it’s one thing to be frustrated and say inappropriate things but, this mean girl made it a personal attack…very personal. I have had my bitch moments….trust me but, I would NEVER, EVER say those kinds of things to another human being. Hopefully Brit learned something from it. She went way too far. She is a beautiful girl but, an ugly person.

    1. That’s totally fair. I just feel that two wrongs don’t make a right. Unless you’re baking and then who knows, maybe you make the next cronut? Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts.
