“[All the hate] makes me feel like I don’t deserve anything,” said Dixie as she struggled to contain the emotion. “I’m trying to do everything I can to better myself, and it just gets worse. They break up every single thing I do and make it a negative thing.”
For example, she described an incident where someone posted a clip of her leaving the gym, and people criticized the way she looked. “Everyone picks apart every single thing I say and do and the way I look. I know it’s just people’s opinions, but it hurts so much.”
Charli also touched on the issue in a separate scene, saying, “I don’t know. I feel like it just gets more difficult every day. This is why I don’t go out. This is why I don’t want to walk to anyone,” while breaking down in tears.
Fans reacted to the first episode by showing their support on social media, claiming it broke their heart to see them cry, and they can’t imagine what it’s like to be in that position.
There will be many more emotional scenes in subsequent episodes. However, there will also be plenty of heartwarming ones too.
After all, it’s supposed to capture the ups and downs of their lives and show fans what it’s like. And the first episode did that perfectly.
