Dealing with Hate
Considering that Sissy entered public life at a very young age, this type of exposure usually comes at a price. During the years, she’s been targeted by many trolls who eagerly express their hate, mixed with profanity on account of her looks, singing, and acting abilities. She initially thought it was very difficult to deal with haters, especially given her goal- to make a positive impact on the world and bring empowerment to women. She figured it was hard to be positive when people are bombarding you with insults and curses.
However, as she became more popular, she attracted a huge influx of positive comments too, but also negative, which according to her words, would really affect her thinking and self-esteem. Now she claims to have grown a thicker skin, and deals much better with the toxic social media environment.
In a recent video she said: “I’m a lot, lot better at it. I’ve finally started listening to my mom, and my team, and my friends about not replying to it. Of course, it still gets to me. The hardest part probably for me is when it’s other influencers… It’s been hard, especially being so young.” Sissy also said that she is very selective about the content she posts.
