Taking a stand! f(x) star Amber has posted a long, emotional letter calling out online haters who constantly pick on her tomboy image.
The 22-year-old Los Angeles-born singer has long been the victim of harassment from trolls who pick on her boyish style and dress style.
She wrote in an a lengthy and emotional Instagram post alongside a simple black image:
“never want to be forceful but there comes a time where i need to put my foot down on something i strongly believe in. Due to recent events i want to address something: I’ve been a tomboy pretty much all my life and honestly, to put it short, it really sucks sometimes. Haters can and will hate, but insulting me in front my face is totally different thing. I personally believe girls and boys are not limited to one specific look. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. We are all different. If we all sang the same melody how can there be harmony? Dont judge someone just because they’re different. Hopefully we can all grow to respect each other’s differences.
Im always trying to stay positive and happy. I love my life, my work, and the people who are constantly supporting me. I am always thankful because i know i cant be here on my own strength. With every mistake, i analyze my fault and then try to better myself. I know i can’t be perfect but i will always try to be my best. In regards to that, i want thank everyone again for constantly encouraging me and believing in me.
To put it simply, love and help one another. And for people who are struggling, always be yourself. Being true and real to who you are is the biggest thing you can do for yourself. Love life, work hard, and chase your dreams.
Thank you again.”
It was a long letter by Instagram caption standards but perhaps an indication of how much angst Amber was building up all these years. Good for you girl!
