It's no secret the Internet isn't the best place to turn to if you're looking for a boost of confidence, but do you ever stop to think about the far-reaching effects of critical virtual comments?
Fitness guru Cassey Ho profoundly illustrates how cyber-bullying can negatively impact one's self-esteem in a new video for her YouTube channel titled "The Perfect Body."
In the now-viral clip, the founder of Blogilates, who has been connecting with fans and sharing fitness tips for the past five years (her channel currently has over two million subscribers), snaps a selfie in the mirror and uploads the pic to social media, only to find herself being berated by followers, who were quick to judge her figure. Ho then "Photoshops" herself to create the "perfect body," slimming her waist, enhancing her breasts and booty, trimming down her jawline and even changing her eye color. The video ends with an image of Ho in her natural state, accompanied with the text, "What Would You Change About Yourself?"
