Social media is not an easy place for celebrities to be. They are constantly under scrutiny and the trolls linger in the shadows to pounce the celebrities at the slightest chance.
A lot of celebs have opened up on the practice of people trolling them on the social media platforms and Jacqueline Fernandez, who has time and again been trolled has done the same.
She told Bombay Times, “It has become tough being a celebrity today. It’s true that social media has opened up so many doors right now, but there are also a lot of people out there who are depressed and angry, and they use the platform to vent their own frustrations. It’s unfortunate that even they get the same amount of attention, as the good folks out there who just want to be heard. You can’t deny anyone that right.”
“I don’t take trolls or the people creating the memes, seriously. They don’t seem to be making a valid point or even expressing an opinion. They look like jobless people who have nothing else to do in life. I would be insulting myself by giving these trolls any attention,” she added.
Jacqueline said that she keeps things to herself as they can get misconstrued on social media platforms. "Things can get misconstrued on social media platforms. Certain things that we say or talk about are sensitive and we have to be very cautious. A lot of times, even if I have an opinion, I do not like to express fearing backlash. I feel it’s simply not worth the effort. It’s become so difficult, just to say or do one simple thing. I would rather not take up the daunting task of dealing with allegations, controversies and offending people. I can’t handle all that. If my opinion is going to create all this chaos, I would rather keep it to myself," she concluded.
Jacqueline Fernandez will next be seen in ‘Race 3’ opposite Salman Khan.
