Tamra Barney is accustomed to negative feedback — it goes with the territory when you’re a cast member on The Real Housewives of Orange County. While the celeb is usually able to remain reasonably polite in the face of harsh criticism, she sometimes gives in to temptation and lashes back. She did just that the other day, shocking followers with a decidedly nasty post.
Reality stars have a love-hate relationship with social media. Yes, they enjoy connecting with fans and, of course, receiving plenty of Twitter validation whenever they post their perfect selfie pouts. Unfortunately, social media also provides plenty of opportunities for the haters to dig in with nasty insults.
Although her Facebook page is constantly under attack from critics, Tamra Barney typically manages to keep her online interactions civil. But the reality star couldn’t resist temptation the other day, when a follower said that she looked “gross” in her latest bikini selfie. Tamra responded, “This beautiful person wrote me a message under my bikini picture saying….’you look gross.’ I thought about deleting her until I looked at her face and I felt sorry for her. Give her some love!”
Although veiled in faux concern, this message is clearly an attack on a mean-spirited follower. While it’s obviously in bad taste to tell someone (reality star or otherwise) that she looks gross, Tamra’s response is just as bad. Of course, accused of sinking to the low, low level of her haters, Tamra claimed that her comment was justified, explaining, “now she won’t do it to anyone, ever.”
Did Tamra Barney go too far? Or did her Facebook critic deserve the harsh feedback? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
