Or, we could just not act like jerks.

I can’t “like” this enough! Frankly, I’m absolutely appalled at the intensity of the hate directed at this girl. It’s as if someone is not allowed to complain unless they are the perfect victim. I wonder if some of these people will look at someone having a heart attack, shrug their shoulders and say, “His Instagram feed shows him drinking lots of pop. He deserved it.”

We are humans. We make dumb decisions every single day. Sure, some of Talia’s financial choices may be questionable (may, because we truly have no idea), but that doesn’t mean she isn’t in a shitty situation and don’t deserve our sympathy.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
