Ciara Blasts Her Social Media Haters in Open Letter
Ciara wonders why mean spirited people use social media to tear other people down. "My questions to people creating slander about people are: What stops you from thinking twice about trying to defame someone? What are you trying to gain?" she asks.
She continues, "Words are powerful. You could say the wrong thing about someone, famous or not, on the wrong day and that could cost them their life because they're at a weak point. Believe it it or not, you could also be encouraging them to give up on their life or whatever the situation is, when they shouldn't. Or what about a story that causes unnecessary drama stemming from completely false information? It's just flat out wrong and sad."
Ciara has had her fair share of detractors on social media. Last year, she went off on a particularly nasty fan on Twitter by poking fun at the person's appearance and lack of online friends.
Ciara closes her open letter by advising bloggers, "It's never worth it in the end when you sell your soul for a quick dollar, by creating bad stories about people. At some point, it will all reverse on you and you'll end up regretting all the trash you wrote or said about people. The universal friend "Karma" has demonstrated this over and over again. I strongly encourage you to project more positivity into the universe."
