About 180 million followers keep up with Kim Kardashian across her Facebook, Twitter and Instagram — and they don’t always have nice things to say about her. The “Mobile Mogul” attended the 2017 Forbes Women Summit where she opened up about the reality of online bullying.
“Absolutely it affects me… there could be one or two negative comments that really do affect you, and get to you. You know I’m human just like everyone else. Like things do hurt my feelings, but I think that I do have a really thick skin.”
Although Kim has thick skin against the vitriol that comes to her by way of anonymous “keyboard courage,” she says she worries about how social media negativity may affect others, like kids and teenagers. How does she handle it? Her late father and his encouragement to keep family close.
“We’re the only ones that really understand what it’s like. You can report about it, you can talk about, but no one has really been through it, unless you are going through it with us.”
