Honestly, this area is one which needs highlighting and bringing to people's attention. Cyber-bullying is only going to get more prominent the more we use technology and the more children are exposed to it. And children are using technologies and social media at increasingly younger ages. Research has demonstrated the poor effect social media can have on one's mental health. Often we read about people, particularly young and vulnerable people, harming themselves or even committing suicide based on social media bullying. There cannot be enough work done to try and stop this, so for it to become a royal cause is important.
I'd be more inclined to take these two seriously if one of them did not have history of being a cyber-bully themselves. Sofia repeatedly bullied people via Twitter, such as her disabled teacher in New York, etc. Yet Sofia has since said that she has no regrets about her past. How on earth are we supposed to take her, or CP for that matter, seriously when they are guilty of perpetrating the hatred and bullying that they are fighting to raise awareness of and eradicate? The hashtag 'nejtillnathatet' is popular among celebrities in Sweden, and is having some impact in other countries, which is great but how many of those posting that hashtag realise that one of the founders of it was once a bully, and if the rumours of press leaks with bad press about Madeleine are to be believed, still is a bully?
If any member of the SRF should take onboard this issue, it's Madeleine. It ties into her interests with children's causes, and she could use her enormous experience of being bullied in Swedish media to help others who are suffering.
How anyone lets or advises CP and Hoefia to take on this 'fight' is either stupid, ill-informed, or are genuinely oblivious as to just how hypocritical Sofia is being. Even if she owned up to her past and accepted that she was once a bully, I would be sceptical.
yes. no regrets of past. anything to get you to the top of the tree, eh?
