Los Angeles, May 19 (IANS) Singer Kesha feels online trolls are the worst kind of bullies.

Kesha, who has been a victim of social media trolls several times, says the amount of “body-shaming and baseless slut-shaming” online makes her sick, reports

“When I think about the kind of bullying I dealt with as a child and teen, it seems almost quaint compared with what goes on today. The amount of body-shaming and baseless slut-shaming online makes me sick,” Kesha told Teen Vogue magazine.

“I know from personal experience how comments can mess up somebody’s self-confidence and sense of self-worth. I have felt so unlovable after reading cruel words written by strangers who don’t know a thing about me.

“It became a vicious cycle: When I compared myself to others, I would read more mean comments, which only fed my anxiety and depression. Seeing paparazzi photos of myself and the accompanying catty commentary fuelled my eating disorder,” she added.

Kesha continued that the sick irony was that when she was at some of the lowest points in her life, “I kept hearing how much better I looked”.

“I knew I was destroying my body with my eating disorder, but the message I was getting was that I was doing great,” she said.
