And in walk the trolls who have to attempt to belittle and bemoan every facet of Sailor’s existence. They have criticized her looks, saying that she’s never going to be as good as her mother or sister, they’ve criticized her choice of college, and they just tear down every single thing she puts out there. While Sailor normally ignores these absurd comments, she just couldn’t take the hate anymore, and shamed the trolls with one single Instagram post. You can read what she had to say to them next!

Fed Up

Alright alright. This is going to be super long and super rant-y. Im sorry in advance. So, I usually never read the comment section under any stupid article about me.. And when i do i usually never take the comments to heart.. But i am so fed up. First of all- everyone needs to stop putting me and my siblings and me and my mother in competition. I believe comparison will kill you. Comparison to others is toxic and unhealthy.. As long as I am happy healthy and kind to others why should i care if i am not as ‘pretty’ as someone else ? Let alone not as ‘pretty’ as my own blood relatives? Secondly- Pushing down the school i worked my ass off for 4 years to get into, saying its for do-nothing trust fund babies, is not only stereotyping a scholastic community but is just plain incorrect and rude! I know many kids enrolled in Parsons who are the most hard working and passionate students in all of new york. And lastly.. The subject i have been meaning to touch on publicly for years- stop. comparing. me. to. my. mother. Believe it or not I am my own person with my own beliefs and own thoughts and my own face! Eyes smile teeth forehead! All mine! The whole shabang! Yes i am so fortunate that my mother is my mother.. And she will always be an inspiration to me… But being constantly compared to her 50+ years of success at only 18 years old? And being told I could never amount to what she was and what she looks like? Doesn’t feel great. I just will never understand these people who WANT to make me feel badly, who WANT to tell an 18 year old girl she cant follow her dreams because if she does she WONT BE AS GOOD AS HER MOM WAS. I’m just a person figuring out what i want to do and what makes me happy. Leave me alone. My one wish is that these people can get off their computers, go chase a sunset, kiss someone they love, pursue one of their dreams and STOP making an 18 year old girl feel constantly inferior and hurt. Lets just fuckin spread love you guys. And pleaseeeee stop trolling me. Thank u??

Don’t mess with Sailor! She’ll shut you down. In her awesome Insta-rant, Sailor calls attention to the issue of internet bullying saying that “comparison will kill you.” She addressed one commenter who claimed that her school was just for trust-fund babies, and she said that his assertion was “incorrect and rude! I know many kids enrolled in Parsons who are the most hard working and passionate students in all of New York.” And she says that as much as she loves and admires her mother’s decades of work, she is not her mother. “I’m just a person figuring out what I want to do and what makes me happy. Leave me alone.” We’re right behind you, girl!

Christie knew that one day her daughters would have to deal with these haters and advised them about how to handle it. “I tell all my kids: When you achieve any level of success in your life, no matter what it is, it will come with the haters. All you can have is pity for the person who spends all day writing [negative things] and you certainly can’t take it personally. It’s a universal issue. It’s not just aimed at you. Everyone from everywhere is affected by this.”
