I just cried my eyes out watching the Jesy Nelson odd one out documentary. When I started out I was a chubby teenager and there was no end to the amount of keyboard warriors who wanted to tell me how crap I looked.

I was heartbroken watching Jesy explain the shite that she had to take since day one. People don’t realise how damaging their words can be and I really hope that this show has a massive impact. It must have been so hard for her to make but I think she has helped so many people ❤️— ᗩᗰY ᗰᗩᑕᗪOᑎᗩᒪᗪ (@Amy__Macdonald) 13 septembre 2019
“People don’t realize how damaging their words can be and I really hope this show will have a massive impact.
“It must have been hard for her, but I think she helped so many people.”
One follower said: “Beautifully said. Your journey is magnificent and is a pleasure to millions, myself included, so all those kackfisted keyboard warriors can go shaft themselves. You laugh loudest, and we tap our happy toes in time to your joy.”
While another said: “It just takes one person saying something hurtful to crush even the most confident of us. For any young person to have to face a torrent of abuse is heartbreaking and the scars it leaves are damaging for life.”
And one Twitter user added: “These people are jealous that said this. The hype was right. I am glad you did not run away and showed them that their words only made you an even better person.”
