Ronda Rousey, once again, has something to say about her haters.
It's unclear if the haters provoke Ronda or if Ronda provokes the haters. Either way, it's a vicious cycle of hate that probably will never go away any time soon.
I guess, we can trace all of this back to the moment she received a strong kick to the neck/head region of her body and was knocked out at UFC 193 by Holly Holm. In case you forgot about that, here you go...
Ronda isn't loving a lot of what you (the Internet) are saying
Here was Ronda's take on the Internet, which she expressed at a recent media event:
"I don't look at tags. I don't look at comments. People on the Internet are mostly evil, and I don't want to accept any of that negativity. I just use social media to put information out there, but I really don't use it to receive it because people are really cruel with that access.
"I don't want to allow them to have that kind of access to me anymore because they really take it for granted, and they don't look at you like a person. You're an event to them. I don't want to read people saying all the worst things they can imagine about me every single day. I just put what I have to put out there out there, and I don't look at anything else."
Ronda is looking to stay low-key these days
Although Ronda Rousey was on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and hosted Saturday Night Live, she claims that she's trying to lay low these days:
"I'm being purposely mysterious right now because I think people have taken my availability for granted. I'm kind of just wanting to disappear. Everyone is constantly keeping me under a microscope, and I just kind of want to be left alone right now."
So what can we (the Internet) do to support Ronda?
I'm sure that this post will yield some Facebook comments from those of you who don't believe she has a valid point, but I urge you to realize cyberbullying is a real thing. And even big celebrities aren't immune from it.
Let's all try harder to be nicer. I think we owe that to ourselves - and to Ronda.
