Just unfollow

I got a lovely message the other night from a man who is very excited that I switched careers. It said this:

“I’m so glad I dont have to see your ****ing ugly, fat face on tv anymore. Your stupid.”

My first thought was: “IT’S YOU’RE…NOT YOUR!” If you’re going to insult me, try to be grammatically correct.

I realized, I recognized the name of the sender.  He has never been a fan.  He has always been very vocal about his disdain for him.  So my question is this:

“WHY ARE YOU STILL FOLLOWING ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA?!???”

I think he is like many people on social media who “hate-watch.” Kinda like the way I hate-watch my least-favorite football team waiting and praying for them to lose.

Minutes are too valuable in life to spend them wasting your energy on someone you don’t care for.  I don’t get it.  There’s always at LEAST one person who looks for something negative to say on a post or a picture. At LEAST one.  I always want to say, “I’m sorry, is your grass green? Focus on your own lawn first.”

As for me, I’m not on TV anymore so I don’t “technically” have to be polite when someone verbally attacks or insults me.

So sir…since you apparently don’t know how to unfollow or unlike my page…let me do it for you. You are blocked. So now you don’t have to see my ****ing ugly, fat face on social media EITHER anymore.  

I was going to say more but then I remembered one of my favorite quotes: “Never sacrifice your class to get even with someone who has none.  Let them have the gutter. You take the high road.”

  1. I miss your beautiful smiling face on the news! But I am happy for you and your family. I can’t understand why some people are so ugly to others. Are they trying to make everyone feel as miserable as they are? You are a class act and a wonderful role model for our young people?!

  7. Perhaps people feel they have less control over their lives and also manners have degraded over the years! Note the foul T shirts and F this & that on facebook! For those 2 reasons people seem to feel they have a rignt to be angry. I think it will only get worse, foul mouthed children dont come to my house dxcrpt my grandkids who I somtimes need to correct.

    The “new” girl is doing ok.
    People are cruel. Especially when they don’t have to look the person in the eye!
    Love up on those babies at your house and let the cruel man willow in his own misery!

  10. The man does not hate you he hates himself and just vents to other people that are leading a good life
    and wants to destroy other peoples lives. We can only pray for these kind of people to find good & peace with their lives. Keep your chin up Amanda. P.S. miss you on the news.

  12. It’s really too bad this person can’t spell first of all. People that have to say statements with swear words are pretty low lives. Criticism is one thing..swearing about it is completely another. Keep doing what you are doing ..You are a fantastic person..

  15. WOW – I can’t believe How RUDE some people are which definitely tells a lot about what kind of person they really are. As I’m sitting here thinking more about being rude I usually find those kind of people are sadly lacking a happy and full life of their own so they feel better by putting someone else down or making them feel bad. I kind of feel sorry for that kind of person. Oh that’s right – I have a sister like that… 😦

  16. Hi Amanda. Hard earned fan here. As like any change to favorites, when you first appearred on kwwl, i missed what i had always known. But your sincerity, integrity and grit won me over. Your blogs are real. Things that really happen to real people. I appreciate your open and honest words and struggles about parenting. The humbleness to voice the not-so-easily talked about subjects. You are beautiful inside and out. Thank you!! Dont let people that feel the need to put others down to make themselves feel better ever stop you.

  18. Well said. I miss you on the news and enjoy your writing. I get similar hate mail, with equally poor grammar. One this week said, “Your kids deserve a mother who cooks dinner. ” Um, yeah, I’ve got plenty of shortcomings, but I do make dinner! Take care, Amy Gilligan, TH

  19. Well said, Amanda. Unfortunately it seems that there are people out there that have nothing better to do than to look for opportunities to be mean- no matter who or what is posted. I have enjoyed your candid posts.
