Sarah Ferguson slams social media

Sarah Ferguson has slammed social media, contacting it a “sewer,” in an job interview with Australian Women’s Weekly.

The Duchess of York, who was married to Prince Andrew from 1986 to 1996, expounded her views of social media with unfiltered candor. “Women are pitted versus other ladies,” the 60-12 months-outdated former royal proclaimed. “Trolling on the net is vicious and hurtful. We have to stand in opposition to it.”

The children’s reserve writer referred to as for these using social media to “be kinder” and “treat every single other a minimal more carefully.”

Ferguson — who shares daughters Eugenie, 30, and Beatrice, 31, with her ex, Prince Andrew — speaks from her personal personalized working experience on the subject. Ferguson’s daughters have frequently been the subject of vicious online commentary, exactly where they have been mocked for their appearances and trend perception.

Talking of household, Ferguson was just lately photographed alongside her daughter, Princess Eugenie — the pair is self-isolating collectively — acquiring a big cargo of pastries which they intend to send to the workers at London hospitals.
