I think we can all agree that hate comments, nasty comments, mean comments, whatever you like to call them are: the worst. They are horrible to read and completely unnecessary. I want to take this moment to highlight my favourite YouTube "intro" person, which is, MannyMUA. You can watch the intro in a 24-sec clip below. I subscribed to him around the time his palette with Makeup Geek came out and I have been loving all of his videos. He is a fucking delight, I highly recommend him and agree with the sentiments he shares at the start of every video. If you don't like someone don't fucking watch them, don't read their posts or stalk their Instagram pages, why would you?
It honestly makes no sense, but we can all scream until we are blue in the face but haters are gonna hate whether you like it or not. I am sure you've all heard it a million times but the best way to deal with negativity is ignore it. Make like Taylor, and shake it off and that goes for all the noble people out there that see a hater's bullshit comment and fight fire with better fire. Don't do it. Do not feed into their crap. When you fight with a pig you both get dirty but the pig likes it. It just gives that person the attention they wanted. That is all they are doing it for: attention. And the really sad thing is that it works, the amount of YouTubers that respond to negative tweets etc. is ridiculous. In some ways, negative comments should be taken as a compliment because it shows you've reached a certain level of "fame" for lack of a better word, but it can still hurt. Just remind yourself of all the love out there because the love always massively outweighs the hate and that is the most important thing.
This was an extremely short post, by my standards, but I hope you enjoyed it. I would love to know how you deal with negativity and what kind of stuff really affects you, please share your thoughts in the comments. I read them all!

Have you personally dealt with hate online, how do you cope?
