The truth about THAT 15-year-old human Barbie from South London who (with her mother's approval) has become a disturbing internet phenomenon

It’s all rather strange and a little bit disturbing.


Why do i get the feeling that the media is bullying her?

Because just like the Daybreak interviewer, they can't accept someone who doesn't follow the norm?

This is the UK Daily Mail. The newspaper that gave us "Ban This Filth!" about anime. The only big news about this is that she's got more subscribers the the DM. Laughing

They actually made an article where they openly said that anime should be banned?
That's actually an insult to people who love anime and manga, if they indeed made an article that says that anime/manga should be banned.

The media should stay neutral and they shouldn't be allowed to write their own opinions (at least not about topics such as culture). If they have negative opinions about something, they should keep it to themselves.

Since time immemorial, it might seem, it has been the modus operandi of the Daily Mail and similar periodicals to do precisely the opposite. One fathoms its readership quietly indulges in its evaluative slant.
