In a recent interview to promote her new film “From the Rough,” Toya was asked what she thought on the recent online bullying Michelle has been subjected to, particularly the long-trending Twitter hash tag #PoorMichelle.
According to LeToya, she was unaware of the tag, but goes on to call it “gross,” and says she wishes people would think before they use social media to attack people in the public eye.
“I just wish some people would really take time before they click on that comment and start rambling about someone they do not know. Think about how you would feel if someone did that to you.”
LeToya went on to say that Michelle tends to ignore the hate online, but as her friend, she finds it a bit harder to stand by and watch people come for her.
“People have to realize that these are people’s feelings and Michelle is such a beautiful person. As her friend, I’m like ‘Uh uh, don’t you do it. Don’t you come for her, not while I’m around.”
As for her own social media troubles, LeToya says she only occasionally gets hateful messages aimed at her, and acknowledged that like Michelle, she tends to shrug them off.
“I’m over it now,” she told Madam Noire. My faith keeps me grounded and feeling joyous in spite of what negativity may come my way.
LeToya also talked a bit about the cancellation of her VH1 series “Single Ladies.” According to Lady L, she is happy to see the show picked up by Centric, but like the show’s other stars, has yet to be asked to return.
