Rebel talks about the late Hana Kimura and cyberbullying
“I had the most matches with Hana in Japan. So, I definitely bonded with her during that time I was there. It was devastating to hear she was going through such turmoil, and to hear what happened. It was definitely a sad day when it happened. She was beautiful and talented. She will be missed. (As for cyberbullying) I feel pretty blessed that most people are pretty kind to me, so I’m thankful for that. Second, I believe I have a pretty tough skin. Most of the people that I see tweet negative things or sexual things, I feel like I just look at them. I think, ‘You know what? This person must have a horrible life that they have to tweet something so negative.’ I just don’t put much value into the people who just don’t know me. A lot of them do it for attention. For me, I think that’s so pathetic they want this attention, and I don’t give that to them. When I see these tweets or posts or comments, they don’t know what they’re talking about. They may not be the sharpest tool in the shed. You don’t know other people’s circumstances. So, when people who don’t know me need to comment about me, they don’t know me. I try not to let it affect me. If people say you suck, I want to know why. I don’t mind constructive criticism. I’m always looking to grow as a person, as an artist. If you like something, just don’t say you suck. Say, ‘I didn’t like this because of this.’ We can take it and grow from this. Be better. Improve.”
