Emily Ratajkowski has once again hacked off the haters on social media with her latest Instagram photo.
As the incredible Taylor Swift once said, ‘the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate’ and the only option is to just ‘shake it off’ as there is just no stopping them.
I really don’t know what has to happen in your life to make you a miserable and mirthless online troll but there are certainly thousands out there.
And it seems whenever model-turned-actress Emily posts a new photo on Instagram it attracts trolls like moths to a light.
Her latest innocent snap is a part of an ad campaign for the brand Kerastase who make hair products.
The 26-year-old Blurred Lines music video star can be seen playing with her hair in the black and white shot with her arms covering her bare chest.
Indicating the photo was sponsored, Emily wrote in the caption:
Hair is a fundamental part of beauty, femininity, and identity. So excited to announce that I am the new face of Kerastase! Welcome good hair days!
True to form the comments section quickly flooded with criticisms, slamming her comment that hair is important to a person’s beauty, some even calling Emily ‘disgusting’.
- Hair is not a fundamental part of beauty at all. I cant believe you actually wrote that. Absolutely disgusting.
That is a terrible standpoint to have. You are a truly terrible and shallow person if you think that.
A fellow critic also said:
So poorly thought out, such a shame that young girls who may not have hair will see themselves as less than beautiful due to you’re shallow post. Poor taste.
Although these comments initially sound quite harsh they do make a good point that Emily’s caption does seem disrespectful to those who are bald, calling her ‘disgusting’ does seem to be a move too far.
I am sure Emily meant no disrespect but with a following of over 16 million on Instagram alone, she could choose her words more carefully.
There could be possibly hundreds of women and girls with no hair taking from what Emily thought was a harmless caption that they are just not beautiful.
Only last month Emily was being criticised for another Instagram post by the one and only Piers Morgan.
Not exactly one to hold back, Morgan dished out his opinion on Emily’s latest saucy photo-shoot for LOVE Magazine which she has described as ’empowering’.
In the shoot for LOVE Magazine‘s advent calendar, Emily can be seen writhing around on a bed of spaghetti wearing lingerie.
Labelling her a ‘global bimbo’, on Good Morning Britain Morgan criticised the photos saying:
She’s posted something on Instagram about how what we are watching now is unbelievably empowering to feminists.
She wants to take all her clothes off and then claim it’s promoting feminism.
What Emily is doing is using this in the name of feminism. Don’t use the excuse it’s feminism because it’s not.
For goodness sake – get some clothes on and get yourself a proper job.
Recently YouTube star Hannah Forcier lost her locks after a hair relaxer disaster and her tear-filled video titled ‘how all my hair fell out by making one mistake : story time’ went viral.
Hannah explained in her video how she believed her personality and hair dictated her mood:
It would make or break my mood depending on if it looked good.
Having something that makes you stand out and be noticed and remembered is a great feeling. I always felt pushed to the side and easily forgotten.
We’re sure Em will use Tay Tay’s wise words and ‘shake it off’!
