The internet is one of the most fucked up places in the world. It’s a place where people can hide behind a screen, say whatever they want, and not think of the person on the other end. And when we’re talking about one of the worst places – it’s Twitter.
We’re all told not to engage the trolls, but sometimes it is hard not to respond. To remind people that what you say has consequences and affects other people.
And the Euphoria actress took to Instagram to address it.

“I would never actually do this, like ever, but I think it’s really important for people to see how words actually affect people,” Sydney said through tears on an Instagram Live, “And I know everyone says ‘you can’t read things, you shouldn’t read things,’ but I’m a fucking person.”
“People need to be nicer on social media because it’s really fucked up,” Sydney added.
Honestly, people need to be a lot nicer and Twitter needs to take action. Online bullying and harassment is out of control.
