FIF Anti-Bullying Week Special: "F**k The Haters"
Take a look at some of our fave celebs who have ever said "f**k the haters!" (probably).
HI THERE. Welcome back to “F**k It Friday - a weekly feature from MTV Breaks that’s all about saying a big “f**k yeah” to the most excellent people who’ve said “f**k it!” (probably) and taken a leap of faith to make big things happen.
Because this week is Anti-Bullying Week, we’re going to celebrate F**k It Friday a little differently. Instead of naming one FIF King/ Queen we shall list a couple of our fave celebs who have said “f**k YOU” to all those haters out there who tried to get in the way of their success. Because h8ers gon h8, and you can only succeed by being yourself and not giving a “f**k”.
Ok, these guys are great. The amount of hate they get DAILY from internet trolls is ridic, but they’re still out there recording those videos, doing their thing, and not giving one single f**k. Because, let’s face it, all of those big name YouTubers are succeeding more in life than most of us. (P.S. special shout-out to Marcus Butler, who was also picked on IRL for making YouTube vids. Cry him a river, h8ers, he’s got more than 4 million subscribers.)
If you’ve ever seen ‘8 Mile’ you know how much skepticism and hate Eminem had to deal with in order to break into his killer rapping career. He even goes so far as to say being hated on is a good thing – “You’ve got enemies? Good. That means you actually stood up for something.” If anyone can give you a lesson on how to “f**k the haters”, it’s Eminem.
Obama might be our fave person ever to (probably) say these words. At a bullying conference, Obama admitted that even he was bullied for his “big ears” and his name, and look where he is now! He doesn’t even have to say “f**k you” to his haters, as he became one of the most powerful people in the world as President of the United States, and was adored by the masses. No words necessary.
4. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga says she didn’t fit in at all at school, and was made to feel like a freak. But now she’s made a high-flying, award-winning career out of embracing her differences, encouraging her “monsters” to embrace their uniqueness, and basically saying a big old “f**k you” to all those haters that ever put her down for what made her special.
5. Leslie Jones
One of the most notorious recent cases of cyber-bullying happened to Leslie Jones. Why? She is a black female comedian and she starred in the ‘Ghostbusters’ remake, i.e. there were no actual reasons. The hate she received on Twitter was HORRIFIC and, although at first Leslie deleted her account, she came back online days later. She is a “f**k the haters” Queen, and she’s back to doing her thing now, thank goodness.
6. Nathan from Geordie Shore
Nathan from Geordie Shore revealed that he had been picked on for being “black Nathan” and later, when he was out, “black, gay Nathan”. In his shout-out for MTV, he tells us all about it and why we, too, should not give a f**k. All hail King Nathan.
LOADS of celebs were bullied, including Mila Kunis, Eva Mendes, and Justin Timberlake, but none of them listened to the hate that came their way. And thank God they didn’t, cos look where they are now.
HAPPY “F**K THE HATERS” FRIDAY EVERYONE!
