Stage actress, singer and former The Voice contestant Naomi Price has called out the unspoken reason for the abuse faced by Sam Frost.
In a Facebook post on her fan page, Price pointed out the relationship between words and actions, writing: “When we make it okay to write insidious, highly critical, aggressive comments about women online, we make it okay for those comments to grow into spoken words.”
On Monday morning, Frost opened up on radio about the toll online bullying has taken on her mental health, sharing that it got to the point where she ‘didn’t want to be here anymore.’ Just last week, she posted a tweet to her almost 40,000 followers telling her trolls and bullies; ‘you win.’
To the fake accounts heavily trolling me online & into my personal life. If you wanted to break me.. Congratulations you have won. #broken ????
