i don’t blame justin for deleting his instagram account. the type of harassment i see on my account daily is enough to make someone suicidal
“I know I’m not the only one. —–ng Justin Bieber went to a downward spiral because everybody that he dates gets so much hate,” Paris said, defending the singer. “I have known his girlfriend Sofia [Richie] since I was 12 or 13. She’s one of the sweetest girls in the world and people are telling her to kill herself.” So awful.
“I don’t understand how there can be so much hatred in the world right now,” Paris also said in one of the Instagram videos. “I’ve tried sticking up for myself. I’ve tried the whole blocking the haters thing, not reading the comments. I’ve tried a lot of things.” We’ve all been there!
“I don’t get why I’m such an easy target. I try to be nice to everybody that I meet. I give everyone a chance. I’m usually a trusting person. I try to be open with you guys about what I do on a daily basis. I share my life with you. I don’t hide a lot. I’m very public,” she added. “I’m sorry if there’s something that Im doing that you guys don’t like. Maybe I’m too public. I don’t know.”
Paris actually took a break from social media after her suicide attempt, and she tearfully brought it up in one of the videos. “When I was 14, I got so much hatred that, um, I tried to kill myself and then I took like a two year break from social media,” she remembered. “Nothing changed.”
Finally, Paris encouraged her followers to have a little compassion. “We’re human beings, man. We got hearts and brains and feelings and when you say damaging things to people…it —- them up,” she urged. “It really —-s people up when you do that and I don’t know if that’s what you want, but its exhausting. Really and truly — it’s exhausting.”
