Jaclyn Hill Claps Back At Those Harassing Her On Twitter

What is happening in Texas is truly devastating.

Hurricane Harvey has had catastrophic effects on the people, animals and entire community. The depths of this particular storm are greater than we are able to truly imagine, and the road to recovery for all those affected, and the state of Texas, will be a long one.

Having said that, we are truly inspired by the outpouring of support that humankind has shown in this disaster. People are quite literally taking boats out onto the flooded streets for no reason other than the fact that they want to help people who are stranded, and that’s honestly a beautiful thing.

We’re not going to lie, we’ve shed a few tears reading about all the ways people have been coming together in Texas.

That being said, there have also been an inspiring amount of generous financial donations from celebrities that are highly needed and appreciated.

The fact that people are donating at all is a beautiful thing, but we feel the need to point out something that seems to be becoming an unfortunate trend on twitter right now. People are borderline harassing various celebrities and Influencers via social media in an effort to know how much they have donated to help relief funds.

Now we know what you’re going to say, that people in financial power should donate more. We’re not going to disagree with you there, but ultimately they are not obligated to donate at all if they don’t want to.

Of course the generous and humane thing to do is to offer help to those in need, especially if you are in a position to do so more than others. Despite all of this though, it’s a little discouraging to see people feel as though they are being bullied over whether they did or did not donate. Even more so, over the amount that they donated.

Jaclyn Hill for example took to twitter yesterday to express her own distaste for the amount of harassment she has been receiving over wanting to know the exact amount she donated to the Hurricane Harvey relief fund.

At this point, every donation counts, and while it is also important to be reminding people to do so if they can, it’s also important to remember that some might want the details of their donations to remain confidential or anonymous.

Our thoughts are with everyone in Texas.
