I came across this video of Em Ford, a London beauty blogger who runs her own YouTube channel My Pale Skin.

Ms. Ford suffers from acne. She was bombarded with hateful comments whether she was wearing make-up or not, after posting a tutorial on how to conceal blemishes. It seems that her honesty and desire to promote her “you are beautiful no matter what” message brought out the worst in viewers.

Ms. Ford created this film to show how social media can set unrealistic expectations on our looks and encourages us to join the discussion on her blog using the hashtag #YOULOOKDISGUSTING.
