The world of online commentary can be a cruel one indeed. In this particular arena Kylie Jenner is not someone who fares very well. Despite being just 18 years old, she has the biggest target of harsh comments relating to her appearance, career and personal life of all of the Kardashian Jenner clan.
One video editor, Will Rebein, decided to highlight the often vicious world of social media that someone such as Kylie inhabits. An anonymous voice over reads the cruel comments from social media users left on one of her recent makeup tutorial videos.
He explained his thinking behind the video, saying:
“It’s unreal that people take the time out of their day to write these comments, and forget that there is a real person potentially seeing these things and internalizing them.”
He explained that he offers this video as a take-down of the “hate culture” that has exploded on the internet:
“Reading these comments (which were literally just taken from the top comments of two articles) and showing imagery of Kylie makes them seem more real and realize how painful the words can be.”
