A Black Woman Received Appalling Racial Abuse While Tweeting From @Ireland
This is the most fucked up thing, ever
Cyberbullying strikes again.
Blogger, Michelle Marie received a rake of racial abuse when she was given the @Ireland Twitter account to moderate for a week.
The account was created by Irish Central in 2012 to give a voice to the varied voices of Ireland, from within Ireland and across the world and has over 41,000 followers.

Originally from England, Michelle settled in Ireland and absolutely loves it here.
'It has my heart.'
Hours after she took over the account, the serious racial Tweets began.
Which she went on to address:
A few people are finding issue with me being black and running the Ireland account, so let me just address that for a minute...— Ireland / Barry (@ireland) August 22, 2016
I need a break. I'm trying to get to the ppl who are tweeting good, insightful things, who I want to interact with, but there's so much hate— Ireland / Barry (@ireland) August 22, 2016
Nevermind the facts. That genetically I'm quarter white British. Or that the 3rd world home I'm meant to f*ck off back to is England.— Ireland / Barry (@ireland) August 22, 2016
And the kind of replies she was receiving were V I L E.
She responded some positive advice.
Physical features don't define you. The number on the scales doesn't define you. Your clothes size doesn't define you. YOU define you.— Ireland / Barry (@ireland) August 22, 2016
And now, let's all move on. Please.— Ireland / Barry (@ireland) August 23, 2016
But seriously what the fuck is wrong with people?
Nobody should have to suffer through that kind of shit.
In conclusion, cop on.
