Social media is an unforgiving place. Anything people remotely find amusing, goes uphill in no time. What many fail to understand are the negative effects that may follow.

When a reporter asked a group of teenage girls about the weather in northern areas, which was pretty cold, the girl replied: “We are proud of you”. The video went viral within seconds and the girl became the latest victim of social media bullying.

Standing up for her, Ushna Shah, the Oye! Kuch Kar Guzar actor, slammed those who made fun of the teenager.

Ushna posted this video:

There were rumors of the girl thinking to commit suicide and leaving college. However, recent reports suggest that the girl’s teacher clarified that she was fine and would be expressing her viewpoint in a television show soon.
