Amber Gill has taken to her Instagram Stories to share just one upsetting message she received, opening up to her followers that she constantly receives ‘hateful messages’ every time she posts.
Explaining that she feels “overwhelmed and exhausted” by messages of “ignorance, bigotry and racism” on social media, Amber decided to share one lengthy message she received.
“Sometimes if you catch me being super quiet on here when I usually use my voice it’s because I get overwhelmed/ exhausted and need a break,” she shared on her Instagram stories.
“I can’t post one story without hundreds of messages like the ones I just posted,” Amber continued. “And what I say or repost never warrants the amount of hateful messages I get in return and it’s how idiotic and pathetic the messages are that makes me feel like I’m just fighting a losing battle.
“I love speaking up, but it’s the ignorance, bigotry and racism. They know exactly what they are doing… it’s gaslighting. Sometimes it gets too much as these people are not listening to understand they just want to fight. But this is the most important time to keep speaking as they want people like us to just put up and shut up.”
“I’m not crying about the messages,” she continued.
“I don’t expect my followers to agree with 100% of what I say. It’s just annoying to see how many have this crazy warped view! And it’s very upsetting.”
