Rising Above the Snark—Part 5

With the advancement of technology it seems the rumor mill keeps churning as if it were powered by rocket fuel. However, we should take responsibility for ourselves to be civil and share words of encouragement as opposed to words of ridicule or hate.

This Wisconsin news anchor responded to a very critical and inappropriate viewer comment with precision and grace.

Jennifer Livingston

After being attacked by a viewer for her weight, Jennifer Livingston of WKBT News 8 This Morning responded on-air, ending with this inspiring statement:

“I leave you with this: To all of the children out there who feel lost, who are struggling with your weight, with the color of your skin, your sexual preference, your disability, even the acne on your face, listen to me right now. Do not let your self-worth be defined by bullies. Learn from my experience — that the cruel words of one are nothing compared to the shouts of many.”

Thank you, Ms. Livingston for showing us that self-worth comes from within; and for that, we are proud to present you the first ever “Snark Free Award.”

Snark Free Day is TOMORROW. Are you ready to take up the challenge to lose the snark for 24 hours? If so, tell us about it on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #losethesnark.

These celebrities had a clever response to some snarky, lurking paparazzi!

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield

Now this is a power couple if I ever saw one. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield gave the paparazzi something to talk about before they could come to their own conclusions. The signs say,

“We just found out that there are paparazzi outside the restaurant that we were eating in. Why not take this opportunity to bring attention to organizations that need and deserve it? www.wwo.org; www.gildasclubnyc.org Have a great day!”

Nicely done. What a way to shine some positive light and provide those snarky paparazzi with some real news!

Snark Free Day is a mere FOUR days away. Share with us on Facebook or Twitter how you’ve dealt with a snark shark, using the hashtag #losethesnark.

Today’s blog features Grammy Award winner Adele Dazeem and her epic response to critics commenting on her weight.

Adele

Speaking of Adele Dazeem, the real Adele kept her cool when responding to criticism about her weight by Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld in 2012. Lagerfeld commented that Adele was “a little too fat,” but the British superstar held her own, saying “I never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that.” Hey, if I had that many Grammy’s, I’d stick it to Lagerfeld too.

Snark Free Day is just FIVE days away. Don’t be a snark shark! Take the pledge to be snark free on October 21, 2014. Join in the conversation on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #losethesnark.
