Thank you everyone for telling me how to flag those videos, I’ve sent them my report, linking my post on my blog, hopefully Youtube will come to understand my reasons and delete the videos soon! *fingers crossed*
Thank you so much again for your support!
You know what, I’m so fed up of this uploader thinking it’s ok to upload a video of me without permission and not listen to my reasons why to remove it, and some of the commenters thinking it’s ok to lightly comment on my personality or how I look and I have had enough of being scared of these people, and the BBC, so to hell with being little Miss Nice girl, I’m just going to spill it out for everyone about this show. (I cannot explain how much anger I’m feeling right now, and thats finally making me want to stand up for myself for once!)
So there’s a video with a make over show that involves me and my mother, called Hotter than my daughter, which the mother claims she’s hotter than her daughter, and they both get judged by a jury and in the end get make overs. (Sounds awful doesn’t it?)
Now I wasn’t aware that this video was released till someone linked me to it on Facebook, that’s when my anxiety panic started to reel in, and I had to request the person who uploaded it, to remove it, and that person did, bless their heart, after explaining why. This show has given me and my mother horrible and offensive comments in the past, when talk of this show died down I was starting to get my confidence back, but now that I was aware this video was out I started to get panic attacks.
The reason I’m not ok with this video being out is because mainly of the offensive comments, the talk of me being autistic just because of my shyness, people saying that I needed plastic surgery in the past, and others just getting annoyed because I was soft spoken. Which is plain ridiculous but that’s how many stupid and awful people there are out there. Since then it’s played a horrible effect on my anxiety and how I feel about my looks, thinking I was ugly to an extent.
This show also gives me too many awful memories of the people involved in this show (not the girls in the picture above, it is a evidence of a photo showing that is me in this show), the amount of promises they said they would do but failed to, the lying behind getting us on it in the first place, (we weren’t willing to go on this show in the first place), they also made us say things we where extremely uncomfortable with (if i had ever kissed anyone, which was asked by the camera man alone in a room, which I felt incredibly uncomfortable with in that situation), my mum was also forced to say literally that she was hotter than me, for the sake of the show, she was also uncomfortable with that idea aswell. And lastly which was the worst of it all, the bleaching they did in my hair, which went in my eyes, that caused me to have eczema around my eyes for a year, which also made me to miss out a year on college. (the picture below is just the phew of the medicines I had to take to reduce it)
I even had to go to hospital at one point to get better help to heal it before it worsened, my eczema didn’t heal thanks to the amount of stress I had being involved in this show and missing my college. My mother also received awful comments to being perceived as a bad mother, when this show removed and mixed allot of footage (from the auditions they said they wouldn’t use in the first place), which made her look really unsupportive and negative to how I dressed, which understandably angered allot of people, and made them say awful things about her, this has also hurt me, and I don’t wish to see that again. This show basically ruined my life and my confidence with people. So just when I’ve finally moved on from it, it suddenly comes back again in my life, I have been getting panic attacks really badly thanks to it, and dealing with snide and awful comments like that in the picture, are coming back, it just does nothing but hurt me and make me feel awful.
I’ve managed to ask other people on Youtube to delete their copies after explaining this to them, and they’ve cooperated and where nothing but understanding, which I’m so grateful for, but this uploader has been ignoring my messages, which is leading me to contact the BBC to remove the videos hopefully.
(If the video cannot be removed by the BBC by any chance may I please ask if anyone knows if I have any rights to flag this video? it will be greatly appreciated, thank you,)(UPDATE! I found out, and reported it thank you everyone!)
But for future reference, if anyone sees this video, please if you cannot report it to me, or try sharing it as well, it causes others to share the video file and receive more views.
Please understand that this video has real people, with lives, reality TV is nothing but manipulation to get normal people to go on and embarrass them on live television, for their own selfish gain. We could’ve sued the people in management for this show, but one time I called to make a complaint, one of the people who managed it, cried on the phone as I told her off, I couldn’t find it in my heart to sue them after hearing her cry, because she basically had a job that she was afraid to lose, and I couldn’t be cruel to her for just doing her job.
So to make this past be past, I ask you please do not distribute that video and lightly comment without knowing us or the people who are working for it, the people who created this show and in management are to blame. Also a pre warning to mums and daughters who might be approached by this show, do not go on this show, the people in this show are absolute liars who are only interested in using you to boost ratings, I repeat, DO NOT go on this show.
Thank you everyone for understanding.
