Many people assume hurtful comments won’t affect famous people or people with a lot of followers, but Madison’s tweets show that bullying can be damaging to anyone, regardless of their status. While Madison said the bullying made her sad but she’d ultimately be fine, you can never know someone’s mental state or what’s happening in their life. That’s why Madison said she decided to speak out about the hate she receives. She said she refuses to get used to being bullied just because she’s famous.

“People always say just ignore hate and don’t interact, but this is why i do,” she wrote. “i have a short time on this planet as we all do and i hope to impact it in some way or another. if one less person doesn’t press send on a hate comment, i’m good w that.”
