Jenny Slate's Social Media Trolls Advice: 'You Can Decide Whether Or Not They're Real'

Jenny Slate is opening up about how she deals with social media bullies!

“There is no one way to be. The only decorum that there is is face-to-face decorum,” the 35-year-old Gifted star told SheKnows. “That is the morality and the system of manners that should be employed online. It isn’t, because people can hide and they act weird. They succumb to that temptation. I just think feel like everything is face-to-face, use that same rule when you go on the internet. No, I have never been driven to delete [my social media] because I control it. I can’t control other people, but no one’s in my house.”

“The fact is that there are many, many people who feel alone and isolated and want somebody to be speaking so that they can speak as well,” Jenny added. “The positives far outweigh the negatives. Maybe people will be mean to you on the internet, but they’re not at your front door. They’re not at your dinner table. You can decide whether or not they’re real characters in your life. I think the more that there is solidarity and a feeling of energy, the more that will become magnetic.”

“It’s just this is what bullies do,” Jenny continued, “They tell you that what you say doesn’t matter. They make you feel embarrassed for trying. That’s just the thing to identify and work around.”
