I was checking my emails a few minutes ago and I cannot believe my eyes when I saw an email from a person I do not know. Let's just call this person "UNSUB" (unknown subject) since I love Criminal Minds. The email was outrageous and really had me raise an eyebrow and seriously made my jaw drop. I was really contemplating on whether or not I should post about it but then I really want to answer that email and raise a few points as well. I just took screenshots of my mailbox so I can show you exactly what's in the mail. Just click on the pictures to enlarge them.
I had to blur the other emails for privacy. Excerpts from the email underlined and in bold and my response in bold and red.
"I CAME ACROSS YOUR BLOG WHEN I WAS LOOKING FOR REVIEWS FOR CERTAIN MAKEUPS. i CAOULDN'T HELP MYSELF BY SENDING YOU AN EMAIL BECAUSE I THINK YOU ARE ONE STUPID BITHC JUST LIKE ALL BEAUTY BLOGGERS."
- First of all, thank you for dropping by my blog. Back on topic - beauty bloggers are not stupid. It takes a lot of time to come up with just a single post and anything on that post has to be well thought of. Therefore, beauty bloggers utilize their pretty brains to think. And STUPID is a mean word. I firmly believe that this is a tight knit community full of beautiful people who only see the beauty in another person. I think you did not actually take the time reading all the blogs you have visited because if you have, you will, at one point or another see that our world do not revolve around makeup alone.
"TO BE HONEST I WANTED TO NOT THINK OF YOU AS A STUPID PERSON BECAUYSE YOU WRITE WELL AND IT SEEM LIKE YOU ARE EDUCATED BECAUSE YOU ALMOST HAVE PERFECT GRAMMAR. BUT AFTER READING ALL YOUR BLOGS, I NOW THINK YOU ARE JUST SHALLOW JUST LIKE OTHER BLOGGERS, BRAGGING ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY THEY WASTE ON MAKEUP, EXPENSIVE ONES. REALLY WHAT GOOD DO YOU GET FROM FLAUNTING THOSE BRANDED MAKEUPS YOU HAVE AND EVEN COMPLAINING ABOUT HOW THEY DO NOT WORK FOR YOU? WASTING YOUR MONEY ON SOMETHING THAT YOU DON'T LIKE IS JUST STUPID."
"THAT'S HOW I CAME TO THE ANALYSIS THAT YOU ARE A STUPID BITCH THAT IS ONE OF THE SUPERFICIAL AND VAIN STUPID PEOPLE ON THE WEB."
"DON'T YOU HAVE OTHER THINGS TO DO IN LIFE AND IS THIS ACTUALLY WHAT YOUR PARENTS RAISED YOU FOR? I SOUND MEAN BUT SOMEONE HAS TO SHED LIGHT ON YOU AND TELL YOU TO STOP THIS STUPIDITY WHILE YOU STILL CAN AND JUST WRITE ABOUT OTHER THINGS THAT CAN ACTUALLY BE OF USE TO THE WHOLE WORLD. WAKE UP CALL, BABY. SAYANG KA."
- No, my parents did not raise me up thinking that I will do beauty blogging as a profession. I do other things in life. I write things other than beauty-related stuff and that is what I do for a living. While I appreciate your "intent" to give me a wake up call, this kind of email is totally uncalled for and is outright rude and nasty. Well, product reviews from beauty bloggers are useful, yes! Especially to those who are starting out with makeup. What's wrong with wanting to look presentable? Check out MakeUpAlley where there are tons and tons of reviews that are useful to consumers.
I am wide awake, BABY! And please, if you have nothing nice to say to a person, might as well just zip it! Between the two of us, I think you are more sayang than I am because you actually call people stupid without knowing anything about them and more so, you took the time to send me a mean email. Happy holidays! :)
Whew! That was long. These are all I have to say to you, Mr./Ms. Stupidpeoplebuster!
