Social Media is indeed a place where people can express their feelings and opinions about celebrity gossip, but Ciara is confused as to why people are using it to put broadcast their bitterness towards others. Recently the singer published a letter on her official website about being disgusted by the inconsideration for other peoples’ feelings on social media.
Ciara stated the anonymity gives people the courage to post nasty comments, and then it becomes a competition. Bloggers play the, “Who Can Say the Nastiest Comment Game.”
Ciara says when she sees a negative post she thinks to herself, “I could pick this person apart so bad, but what for? Why act ugly like them?” Ciara seems quite upset about the defamation and harsh criticism towards people in the spotlight and compares this same harsh criticism to cyber-bullying amongst everyday people. Her question to these nasty bloggers is: “What stops you from thinking twice about trying to defame someone? What are you trying to gain?”
