Singer, Kechi Okwuchi shares tips on how she handles trolls mocking her faceShortly after Big Brother Naija Reality Show star, TBoss broke down emotionally when internet trolls called her baby ‘ugly, Kechi Okwuchi, Nigerian-American singer and motivational speaker and one of the two survivors in the Sosoliso Airlines Flight has opened up on her own challenges.
Kechi noted that she is not exempted from the different negative comments from cyber bullies, but she had since devised a means to face the challenges.
Sharing some lovely photos where she played a bridesmaid and what she got from a troll, Kechi wrote; ” Opportunities show up in the most interesting places.
This comment under my most recent tweet has given me a chance to address online bullying.
When faced with this there’s a no. of steps I can take:
Though I like my response here, I regret responding at all, because the no 1 reason ppl say mean things online is FOR ATTENTION.
Remember that. So once you don’t even acknowledge them, they have no power.
Now, you may encounter cyber bullies who persistently push you online no matter how much you ignore them.
Step 2- BLOCK AND/OR REPORT. It’s your page, your feed, you have some measure of control over what appears on it.
I’m not saying block and report ppl who disagree with you, that’s childish. But if someone says something like the above to you in person, you most likely won’t sit to listen to it. So the same way you’d block and cancel ppl who talk this way to you irl, same thing online: CANCEL THEM.
Now if all this didn’t work and you simply must respond like I felt the need to: EXPOSE THEM. If they did it to you, they’ve done it to others.
We live in a world where ppl are more informed and less tolerant of such behavior. So if you must reply, never fight fire for fire. I exposed this bully and as ppl came for him through my post I didn’t even have to block him myself 🤣🤣🤣 as you can see, online bullies can’t take what they dish out and are only brave behind a screen🤷🏽♀️
Ok I’m done.
Hope this helps someone☀️
