Comedian, radio host and social media star Tanya Hennessy has recounted the self-esteem-crushing moment she discovered there was an online hate page about her.
In an interview with Stellar magazine, the 32-year-old said she learned about the page a few years ago when she was the host of a Hit 104.7 breakfast radio show in Canberra. The creator’s aim, she discovered, was to get her axed from the program.
Disturbingly, it was on R U OK? Day that the “awful” page was made. It was the same day that the host had opened up about her struggles with her listeners.
“I’d been talking very honestly about how hard it was moving cities, and how much social-media bullying affected me,” Hennessy told reporter Saskia Tillers.
“Then I found the hate page had been made in response to this.”
