Beauty Blogger's Powerful Video Exposes Hateful Side of Social Media, Inspires

Pin It
Beauty vlogger Em Ford (My Pale Skin) created this amazingly powerful video to show just how cruel people can be online with their 'keyboard courage.' Her #Youlookdisgusting video has now gone viral, exposing some of the hurtful comments she received after going without makeup and posting pics of herself on social media.

There were some pretty horrible reactions to her pics, such as, "I can't even look at her" and "Seriously...has she ever washed her face?"

When she covered up her acne with makeup, she received more positive than negative comments, but still had her share of haters, with comments like, "This is false advertising," "This is why I have trust issues," and "Imagine waking up next to her in the morning." Honestly??

Em ends the video by saying, "You are beautiful. Don't let anyone tell you differently. Not even yourself."

In the YouTube info, she explains: "I wanted to create a film that showed how social media can set unrealistic expectations on both women and men. One challenge many face today, is that as a society, we're so used to seeing false images of perfection, and comparing ourselves to unrealistic beauty standards that It can be hard to remember the most important thing - You ARE beautiful."

Em continues: "You are beautiful - no matter how flawed you feel, no matter how upset you may about the way you look or how hard you find it to make friends, or be confident. Believe in yourself, and never let anyone tell you're not beautiful - not even yourself."

Amazing message. Thanks, My Pale Skin!
