I HAD A TOUGH EX­PE­RI­ENCE WITH CYBERBULLYING: ZOE

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tor Zoe Sal­dana (left) says she has ex­pe­ri­enced her fair share of cyberbullying but in­sists that this won’t stop her from shar­ing things with her fol­low­ers. The 38-year-old ac­tor says de­spite be­ing a star, she isn’t im­mune to re­ceiv­ing hate on­line. “Of course, so­cial me­dia, as we all know, has a dark side. Cyberbullying is a grow­ing epi­demic (I’ve ex­pe­ri­enced my fair share). But no mat­ter what hap­pens, or what the re­ac­tion may be, I’m not go­ing to stop shar­ing,” she says. How­ever, the ac­tor says that she hasn’t learned a thing or two along the way. “I’m work­ing to re­shape the way I want to say things, and I know how im­por­tant it is to choose your words wisely. The truth is, we’re liv­ing in a sound bite era. Peo­ple aren’t in­ter­ested in the con­ver­sa­tions; they just want the head­line of it. So, that means that I have to be a lit­tle wiser in the way I ex­press my­self.”
