Una Healy has opened up about the struggles of life online, as the singer revealed she had to block several accounts that were being rude.
Taking to her Instagram stories, the presenter shared her disappointment at seeing behaviour like this, especially on World Kindness Day.
As she wrote: “I’ve had to ‘block’ quite a few negative profiles and comments today of all days… ‘worlds kindness day’…”
The Tipperary native elaborated further in a follow up video.
Saying: “Hey everyone, good evening. I don’t come on here very often to divulge much about my life or my private life or try and preach or anything like that, but today, it’s World Kindness Day.”
“And the one piece of advice my mum passed on to me was, ‘if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say it.'”
“And that’s all I will say – just don’t say it, if it’s not nice keep it to yourself.”
It seems Una’s message resonated with followers as she shared an update, after her initial post, and revealed she had received an overwhelming amount of support after sharing her story.
Saying: “Well, I just want to acknowledge that the positivity to that message I put out has far outweighed the negativity tonight.
“I want to thank everyone for your lovely messages and just to know that we don’t deserve s*** being said about us or any negative comments.”
Once again, reminding followers to always be kind, Una ended with: “Like if you feel you want to say something mean to someone or if you think mean thoughts, just keep them within yourself and look after yourself but don’t put them out there because that’s a sign that you’re not feeling well in yourself.”
“Just look after yourself, but don’t put out that hate.”
