People kept posting hateful comments about this woman. This woman's family then started posting/messaging things to CH (someone was allegedly sending death threats).

    So IMO this is a case of her *trying* to address/fix something but due to not enough social media experience etc it went out of control.
    That whole incident was so dumb it beggars belief. Who in this day and age sends a child to school in black face?

    These situations get completely out of control when people aren't smart enough to understand the impact of their actions.

    CH addressed the issue of black face very well IMO. She did not blame or shame that Mumma. In fact, I think she was pretty clear about it being an innocent act of mum helping son honour his hero. But that a lesson was there to be learned.

    It was everybody else that went mental about it.

    I'm definitely not CHs biggest fan, but I do like her, she's so real, she 'seems' to genuinely want the best for people.

    There was a thread about black face recently. It may have even been because of that incident. Anyway, I think black face is one of those things where once you know better, you do better. It wasn't taught in schools, and I have had to explain why it's CA to several people because they were completely unaware of its history.

    Loathe CH. I think she is an ignorant nitwit. Her language is extremely offensive and most of her blogs are simply awful.

    Never heard of NM till now.

    I think Lisa was quite direct, but that appears to be her style ( I knew CH but not NM before this). I certainly won't say she was kind but I believe she made some really valid points about the whole cult like thing that is happening with CH and how destructive that can be on several levels. It seems CH attracts a certain type of personality; that personality can have many good things, but bad as well, as this is the result.

    I really dislike censorship except in obvious cases of racism, homophobia, pro-DV etc. I think the world has changed so much with the internet and I see so many cases of people that put themselves right out there social media wise, then get upset when people critique them. Like Rebecca Judd lol

    I guess I liken it to excessive force. If someone kicks you, you can kick them back but you can't stab them. NM while a little harsh didn't deserve what she got. A fair response would have been Hall putting together her own blog post addressing the discussion of NM with her own set of hard hits. Having literally thousands of people abusing and threatening Lisa? Nope I consider that 'excessive force'.

    As much as I dont love CH, I did agree with her stance on the child in blackface. The story basically went down - a fellow 'queen' mum posted on CH wall, applauding herself for her sons great blackface costume for bookweek. CH deleted it & didnt name & shame the mum, but explained (at a basic level) why blackface isn't ok & she couldnt accept that post on her wall. As PP said - when we know better, we do better. The mum cracked the sh!ts because CH didnt applaud her for painting her son black. Many ignorant people still had no understanding of why blackface isnt ok, & attacked CH. So even though I'm not a fan - I did agree with her on that one, very much so.

    I have a few friends that like CH. I read the things that popped up on my wall because they had liked them, and after a few, I told FB not to show me her posts. I don't get the hype. She seems very fake to me. Like she's trying too hard. And I personally don't think the relationship drama in her life needs to be aired in public.

    I though NM's blog was harsh though. But from what I read, CH commented on that post, and they talked it out and everything was fine. Then CH did her post about how she was on the bathroom floor having an anxiety attack over it and it exploded from there. If that is true, then I can't help feeling CH was unfair, and I would bet she knew what the outcome would be. If you have a disagreement with someone, work it out and shake hands, you then don't throw a sucker punch afterwards! So even less of a fan after this. But not a fan of NM, who I'd never heard of until now, either. That reeks to me of sour grapes. I mean love or hate CH, but she lumped her in with mass murderer!!
