The Blog Abroad’s Top 10 Hate Comments From 2017 |
Cape Town, South Africa

People, for the most part, suck. But most importantly, their sucking ways aren’t limited to a specific region, gender, religion, or mental illness cause.

As a blogger, part of my job is getting criticized daily by idiots strangers who have pent up anger from being the product of multi-generational incest, so they harass people online from their lover’s [aka mother’s], basement. It’s cute — in an Oedipus Complex kind of way.

So every year I like to compile some of my favorite and most creative insults and hate comments that are spewed my way via Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, or Twitter.

Feeling so distraught about my life after the keyboard ninjas attack! Someone, please save me from my misery! Preferably after I soak my feet in my private pool at my $20/night villa. Thanks!

I did one for 2016, 2015, and a special edition Huffington Post one which are still some of my most read articles on my site, which basically confirms you guys suck we all love a lil’ bit of drama.

Being so public with your thoughts, your writing, and essentially, your art, is one of the most empowering things in the world. But no doubt it’ll come with its slew of hate and backlash if you upset a precious snowflake.

Alas, pour a glass of wine [or ten — excuse the typos in advance] and enjoy reading how much the internet has tried to dim my shine, and how it’s only made me glisten even brighter. *wipes sweat, replaces with glistening cream*

My top 10 hate comments from 2017 were pretty cringe-worthy. But I survived! Share the laugh with a friend! Click To Tweet

“How do you combat online bullying?” they ask. Beer mostly. | Johannesburg, South Africa

1. In Response To: “2016 Highlight Travel Reel

Your dad must be rich.

-Bryan C.

What an original and kind assumption! My dad actually passed away one month before I took my first international trip in 2012, so there’s also that.

I love getting misogynistic comments like this from men, because it reminds me that patriarchy is alive and well — and unfortunately, so is Bryan.

2. In Response To: “My 10 Worst Travel Moments of 2017

Not trying to be a dick, but none of these seem that bad or dramatic *yawn*

-Alex B.

The irony of this comment is that it came from a travel blogger who is not only a lazy excuse for a human being a horrible writer, but has no type of substance or appeal to her brand, so she trolls on other bloggers for publicity. Her Facebook fan page has less than 200 followers so it makes sense she tries to use others to get ahead.

She couldn’t blow the janitor for a sponsored stay in a 20-bedroom hostel if she tried — and that’s being generous.

3. In Response To: “Why I’m Leaving America Indefinitely & What Happens Next

You questioning the greatest country on earth takes me aback and makes me question why I follow you.

-Alicia D.

Taken aback? How adare I!

I will say this a million times over, but you can love a country and still be critical of it. Furthermore, blind patriotism is the death of progress, and while America has the strongest economy in the world, we are severely lacking and behind in so many other areas.

From our presidency to our healthcare, to our virtually nonexistent gun laws, to our mass incarceration, to our failing public education, to our defunded mental health facilities. Shall I continue?

If you’re the kind to value mediocrity and question growth, this blog isn’t for you — and neither am I.

4. In Response To: “The Top 5 Countries to Visit in Europe as a Black Woman

I don’t get why negroes always traveling to white countries. Take your ass to Africa!

-Raheem H.

I wrote a post breaking down the biggest issues within the black travel community HERE and it’s gotten over 100,000 views and 2,000+ shares, as it’s filled with harsh truths and necessary dialogue, and it addresses this misogynoir-centered mentality.

By the way, what is a “white” country? America? Scotland? Portugal? The idea that these beautiful countries around the world with majority white populations are only to be enjoyed by white people is a lie from the devil himself and I rebuke it in the name of Jesus.

Let your coins dictate where you want to go [so Raheem, go travel to your backyard witcha simp ass] and tell anybody else to keep their poverty mentality far, far away.

5. In Response To: “The 5 Most African-American Friendly Countries

This is why I do not date black women they are absolutely dumb asses.

-Global T. (YouTube)

absolute***. Sir, have your preferences, but in order to claim you don’t want black women, you have to be desired by them first. And we don’t want ‘cha stank ass. Next.

6. In Response To: “Black Travelers: We Need To Have This Talk

Only a stupid person considers Google a source of education. I get my facts from real life. You could try getting education from a school. You know what a school is don’t you. Its [sic] the place where white people have to pay extra so that ‘some people’ can get in for a massive discount. Coconuts like you (brown on outside, white on inside) won’t survive one day among real black people in Africa.

-Brian S.

I’m offended that he couldn’t just call me an oreo [like most people] — because a coconut implies that I’m also hairy which I won’t deny in the winter.

This elitism about who’s traveled the Motherland the most extensively is wack.

It’s an argument that’s tired AF and needs to die in 2017 along with Brian.

Now if you’ll excuse me, *polishes degree*, I have some world domination in order.

7. In Response To: “People Around the World Ask An American About Donald Trump

What a bunch of bull$h!+ from an egoistical liberal idiot. I didn’t vote for Trump, but I voted. So many people who are mad, didn’t. They are world traveling, airbnbers, like this Gen-Y poop, but they’re not registered voters. Yet they sure complain when the person they didn’t vote for doesn’t get elected.


#WRONG #SAD #YUGE #FAKENEWS. A couple facts to get straight right off the bat.

Yes, I voted. #AbsenteeBallot #FullTimeTraveler #MailedItFromArgentina #SuckItBihhh

Yes, I love AirBnb.

Yes, I also poop.

I think that covers all grounds. Not sure whether people conceived from incest are capable of rational thinking, so I’ll assume no and keep it moving.

8. In Response To: “The 5 Most African-American Friendly Countries

A great many of fucking niggers need to be culled or sterilized to avert at least a modicum of further degradation of the human gene pool. Covert irradiation of nigger ghettos with hard x-rays or gamma rays.

-Ruslan N.

Okay, seriously — who gave Trump a YouTube account? I try so hard to lose sleep at night to creatures God made while tipsy off his water-to-wine rotations, but it just doesn’t work.

Ruslan, if “a great many” is still part of your everyday vocabulary, can you have a great many of seats? You will do us a great many of pleasures if you’d stop having a great many of sex with your sisters and cousins.

Please keep your incest-ridden failing IQ off the interwebs and checked into a facility.

Also, go to Hell, eat a monkey’s nut, blindfold yourself in traffic, nose dive in lava, spin off a cliff, step on a million leggos, you suck.

9. In Response To: “Black Travelers: We Need To Have This Talk

I’m tired of reading fluff, filled with pictures and comedy disguised as intelligent-free writing.

-JD R.

Oh! I’m sorry — don’t like fluff? Do you prefer cotton? Perhaps silk? Are my wool-like words not enough to make you feel enlightened from your perpetual state of faux wokery?

Sir. How can you possibly criticize humor when your whole life is a joke? NEXT.

10. In Response To: “Why I’m Leaving America Indefinitely & What Happens Next

Your blog is nothing more than a sponsored machine now where you just get paid to write about what companies tell you to. And you can’t label all of small town America. Since I’m “privileged”, I will just keep doing privileged things. #assumptions

-Caleb W. (He signed off as “A Parting Follower” to be specific, lulz)

I wonder if he majored in drama. “A Parting Follower”. Am I meant to chase after someone I never catered to in the first place?

He later deleted his comment once the “READ” [slang def: verbal annihilation] got too deep for all that white, male fragility.

As a “parting follower”, I sincerely hope he didn’t skip over the part where I mentioned how little I cared about losing the eyes of those who are blinded by their privilege, let alone in denial of it. Again, I’m not here to make you guys comfortable.

It has never and will never be my job to coddle or comfort people’s privilege. White America does that impeccably already 🙂

I’ve touched on my own privilege in the past, so if you can’t recognize yours at this point, your ignorance isn’t my burden to bear.

I can almost see a trail of fucks to give. Almost. | Paris, France

When my blogger friends tell me they don’t dare browse the comment section of their syndicated articles, I get it.

Kim Kardashian plastic, inflated, silicone Buttttttttt — I honestly think it can easily be flipped into cheap entertainment at best and humbling critique at worst.

You have to remember that the very people sending these messages are likely projecting all the failures, insecurities, and micropenis syndrome side effects onto anything within typing distance.

And just because I write these articles every year, it doesn’t mean I ignore the 95% of you all who throw so much positive, encouraging, and empowering energy my way daily.

That’s why I never let the good get to my head or the bad get to my heart.

I take it all in, process, absorb, and allocate it where it belongs, then move on with my life.

At the end of the day, if the content I produce and the stories I share are accurate reflections of my life, experiences, and travels, then the validation of others isn’t needed or necessary.

If people can relate, then that’s just a plus! But ultimately, I write for my sponsors self 😉

So now that the fun is over, I’m gonna finish up this bottle of Moscato [again, please excuse the typos, will review in the AM] and freeze the tears of my nonexistent sadness to ice my next glass of champagne.

And shout out to all of you for sticking in my corner despite being a “rich, dumbass, unpatriotic, egotistical, liberal, stupid, fucking nigger!

Whew! I think I’ve just found my new Instagram and LinkedIn bio. Cheers!

*Disclaimer: All egos demolished in this post remain bruised until further notice. Blogger in question is unaffected and still living her best life.
