Bella Thorne: “The World Can Be a Sick Place” After Molestation Revelation

Posted by Jeanne on December 14, 2017

Social media can be pretty horrible. People will lob things at each other without fully thinking of the implications or consequences. Sadly, Bella Thorne was targeted by a particularly mean tweet recently and her response shocked her fans and followers.

Thorne shared some pictures to Twitter and one of them prompted a user to comment: “What did Disney do to this girl?! I think she was molested.” Who says something like that, especially given the current movement of women finally coming forward and speaking up about sexual abuse?

In response, the 20-year-old actress/singer fired back by saying, “Yeah I was. So it wasn’t Disney.” After fans flooded her feed with supportive messages, she added, “The world can be a sick place sometimes.” She did not elaborate any further.

Fortunately, she’s got great support, it seems. Her boyfriend, rapper Mod Sun, wasted no time adding his own sweet message and wrote: “Love u mama ur the strongest person I know.”

Hopefully, this is a lesson to people who make thoughtless comments on social media without thinking about the fact that there are real human beings on the other side of the screen. It also might help open the dialogue for younger victims who were molested in addition to the women who have experienced sexual harassment as adults.

Stay strong, Bella!
