Personalities slam Miss Namibia semi-finalists body shamers

Namibian celebrities shut down internet trolls.

Celebrities this week came to the defence of Miss Namibia finalists who were insulted online for their looks. Shortly after the finalists’ profiles were posted online some cyberbullies started a campaign calling for sitting Miss Namibia Selma Kamanya to continue her reign for “a second term” claiming the finalists were too ugly.

Some bullies even dared so far to compare finalists to the ailing state of the Namibian economy. These attacks were annoyed some celebrities. Songbird and Namas Female Artist of the Year winner Monique English said she was ‘disgusted’ and that she knows how it feels to be dragged down on social media.

“Do you really think, talking so foul about these girls on social media will get you more likes or followers?”she asked.

She however feels doing it behind their backs wont hurt them.
“They dont have to see this because it hurts guys,” English appealed.

Actress Hazel Hinda also came to the girls rescue and said that people dont know the background of the girls, what they can and cannot afford.

According to her with the right amount of resources anyone can be made to look beautiful.

“There are no sponsors that come on board until you reach a certain level in the competition. For me it is about seeing the potential than polishing it to shine as best as they can, to get there,” said Hinda.
