• Lana Reacts To Being Called A Prostitute
During a recent interview with TV Insider, RAW Superstar Lana talked about the mean things people say to her on Social Media.
Below is what The Ravishing Russian said:
“It has been eye-opening to me how mean people are and what type of bullies people are in the world. I can’t express enough of how mind-blowing it is.
People don’t have to agree with my decisions in life, that’s fine, but if they don’t agree with me that doesn’t give them the right to come on my Instagram and call me a wh*re or a sl*t.
I’ve been called a prostitute on there. What are you even talking about, really? That I’m ‘ugly, fat, the worst human.’ Cyber-bullying is incredible. I knew it existed, but I never really thought it was to this extent. It’s really wrong.
I just want people to make a stand and say that is wrong. Just because you disagree with someone’s lifestyle doesn’t mean that you should come and be mean to them in life or on social media. Go talk to your friends about it if you are criticizing, but don’t come on my social platform and talk about it.”
