I must admit that the last week or so i have been glued to my chair watching the antics of the housemates in “Celebrity Big brother” while I have no interest in the counterpart “Big Brother” there is something about the celebrity version that has me hooked.
It’s just the inquisitiveness part of me that just wants to know what these people are really like. The truth not just what we read or hear about them in the media.
So when I heard that Deirdre Kelly aka white dee was entering the house i was so excited i could have wet myself.
Since Benefit Street was shown I have loved this lady. While others saw a benefit scrounger I saw a lady with so much compassion.
I really admired her courage entering into the big brother house not knowing how she was going to be received.
I also knew that finding herself on show could have really affected her depression but give it up for the lady she wants to better life for her and her children so she walked up those famous steps.
I have loved watching the show, there are characters i am already loving to hate, James for one. Honestly if that man says “let me explain how it was” once more i may scream and surprise ones that i have taken to my heart, George for example. But the front runner and still my favourite is Mrs Kelly.
I love that lady.
So imagine my disgust to come across tweets laughing at her sadness that was shown on last nights episode.
The lady may or may not ( I can’t speak for her) seems to be finding herself on a roller coaster of emotions. Missing her kids, wondering how she got there and generally fighting the evil of depression.
I have seen tweets finding this funny.
Tweets accusing her of faking it for the money
And the worst ones saying that depression is the biggest con of all time.
I wonder what is going wrong in this world when people can say such things.
Why do some thing its ok to tweet such vileness?
Tweet with kindness it won’t kill you.
I only hope that Dee’s children are not reading such crap and are watching the television being super proud of their mom.
I think the world needs an education regarding depression, I have heard it quoted as “rich persons syndrome’. “Benefit scam” and a lot worse.
Depression is a devastating illness which can and does rob life from many.
As for those tweeters i hope everyone unfollows you and that way you can stay being sad and horrid in your own little world.
While i believe and advocate for the freedom of speech I do not believe that people need to be so cruel.
It’s not just about Big Brother its about so much more.
The fact that we have so many turning to social media to breed hate rather than love.
It’s just wrong.
As for me I will be ignoring such crap and will be rooting for Dee to win Celebrity Big Brother and hope that the millions of viewers get to see what I see, one damn fine lady.
I will also being trying to share love and kindess from now on.
[Tweet “Tweet kindness or don’t tweet at all “] is my new motto.
