Why The Internet Is Actually A Wonderful Place

Published

It’s Prom season! You know what that means–endless photos on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc. of people all dressed up doing cWhyliche poses. Just click on the hashtag #prom2016 and you will find a whole bunch of beautiful people wearing beautiful attire. One of those beautiful people was the G.W.

Carver High School senior student Kerione, wearing a gorgeous cream-colored mermaid dress with red embellishments on it to her prom last weekend. Not only was her dress pretty but she looked perfect with her on point makeup (my eyebrows would never be that perfect) and hairdo. Just look how amazing she looks!

Unfortunately, some asshole had to give his really horrible opinion after Kerione uploaded a Prom photo of herself on Twitter because there are actually cruel people like that.

The Twitter account “2 Pump Chump” took her photo and posted a tweet comparing her to a slice of strawberry cheesecake. Yes, because, of course, all things white and red resemble a freaking strawberry cheesecake. To quote the rabbit from Bambi, “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothin’ at all.”

The Twitter activist, Kenna Sharp, who has 41.k followers is an advocate of body positive and when she came across the insulting tweet, she couldn’t just ignore it. She definitely didn’t want the bully to get away with being a jerk so she decided to make fun of his comparison by making it seem like a good thing to be compared to a cheesecake.

Kenna tweet “Comparing someone to cheesecake is literally….not even an insult…. I want someone to compare me to a cheesecake” and that is exactly what she did. She posted a photo of her wearing pink eyeshadow with a photo of a raspberry cheesecake to match her makeup.

Now everyone is comparing themselves to a cheesecake after a bully tried to make it an insult. The hashtag #compareyourselftoacheesecake2016 went viral as tons and tons of people started posting pictures of them accompanied by a photo of a cheesecake. We definitely accomplished throwing shade towards the guy who insulted Kerione but what is important about the awesome collage of photos is that they support those who get harassed on the Internet.

Kenna Sharp told Mashable, “I’ve dealt with so much harassment and bullying online. I feel so proud that there are so many people coming together to support her. I hope more than anything that it will show young people, and even adults to stand up against something that isn’t right and use whatever resources you have to spread a positive message.” Well, her method worked because so many people posted their own beautiful photos to defend Kerione!

Sometimes the Internet is a wonderful place, spreading the body positive images because we are all beautiful creatures! Just scroll through the #compareyourselftoacheesecake2016 hashtag (even on Instagram!) and see all the amazing photos people posted. Some people posted photos of their makeup matching cheesecake and others had their outfits matching cheesecake. Either way, everyone looks glamorous. I look like a cheesecake and I’m proud of it!
