My First Hater

As a beauty blogger, I knew I'd eventually come across negative comments and trolls.  Earlier today, I found the following comment in my Formspring inbox:
As you can see, I responded.  Ha ha!

Don't worry...  I am not upset, just amused.  It's amazing the things people will say while hiding behind the safety of their monitors and monikers.

Thank you to all the wonderful ladies who sent sweet and supportive tweets my way after learning of my hater!

Don´t pay it attention girl, you´re a great person, just keep on the great work in your blog and don´t let this kind of things affect you, :) You are a very cute girl and if that person doesn´t like you then why is checking your blog and formspring??

Take care girl, and keep on smiling, life is short and we can´t spend it on that kind of comments :D xoxo!! btw, I like your blog!!

That's just sad. And makes me want a pop tart. Good on you for not taking it seriously :)

libbeh ♥ said...

I love your attitude! If I had a hater, well, I wouldn't deal with him/her as gracefully as you have, so BRAVO!


P.S.
Your posts are so upbeat & funny that I think I have a little blog envy going on :-\

And burnt pop tarts are the shizzz, yo! So the joke's on the hater! HAH!

Katie said...

Lol cute you and your husband :D
Haters are just a plain ridiculous topic, like why would they spend their time doing this kind of dumb stuff? You didn't do anything wrong! Maybe theyre just having a bad day, maybe theyre just jealous, who knows :P
Nice comeback! I think it's sad when people are just mean to their haters.. like just stooping to their lame level.

lol! gurl your one gorgeous burnt poptart lmao. my haters thing ima slut club whore. its all good lol

Jen said...

ppl have no life! WOW they just wasted 2 minutes of their life typing that. you have way more people that love and adore you so HA! great comeback. i love it!

can you send me the 8x10 glossy and life size cardboard cutout of you? i'd love to hang it in my room. LOL

That is just sad. I know everyone has a right to their opinion, but haven't they ever learned "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all"??? I agree, people can be so terrible behind the safety of their computer screens, but in real life, they are probably really unhappy with themselves and just jealous. You're gorgeous and don't let anyone tell you otherwise! Glad you dealt with it so well though. I would be really hurt/pissed =[

Bombchell said...

smh what an idiot

Cheryl♥ said...

All you can do is laugh it off. It's probably an obese, unemployed, idiot with nothing better to do... lol

em said...

oh god why do people bother?! it's sad that somebody actually took the time to write that :S screw the haters!

xx

Alyssamae. said...

What a stinker! Honestly, who ever wrote this has too much time for their own good, I like your response tho ;) Just shrugg em haters off =P

Agnes said...

How rude! But you handled it well, some girls would get upset because of it. I just think that it's sad that someone tries to make another person feel bad on purpose, nobody is interested in their 'opinion'!

aisyah De Cullen said...

Wow, I agree with you. Talk about being a huge coward with no life.
Hey, you should screen-cap all the comments here and show that person..(well, I'm sure she/he reads your blog to know what kind of face you made).
And good for you on not taking it seriously! =D you are beautiful!

Celia said...

you're the shit for that response, you sexy burnt pop tart you.

Party Box Design said...

Janine aka J-Ezzy @ *La Dolce Vita* said...

I'll take the poster!! Sent it my way, seriously, I'll hang it at my desk!! I hang pics of my friends kids, family and wedding at my cubicle :)

Dag on trolls, always trying to steal one's treasure!! haha, get it? okay maybe not =/

xoxo

Polish and Pearls said...

Yum, now I'm wanting a burnt pop tart, lol!

Glad you handled it so well- love ya!

GorgeousMommyK said...

WOW! that person is so pathetic!!
Pay them no mind gorgeous!

Sue said...

I know how you feel! I have a You tube channel and there I have received about 4 to 5 hater comments. Thank God in my blog, I haven't received any.

This is just someone who has nothing to do with their time.

I got several nsty comments on youtube. I just delete and block. End of story

Nicole said...

Glad to see such a positive take on this! You know you're gorgeous (inside and out)!! Have a great day love!

Did you enter my AVON give-a-way? It's for the Brazil Beat perfume...which smells amazing!! Great summer scent!

I got my first hater last week - just ignore that silly person, your gorgeous and all your followers obviously agree with me :)

sophia said...

Ewww I can't believe someone took time to write that! how are people filled with so much negativity that they take time to write to people they don't even know! Nice job for blasting 'em ^_~

M. said...

Judging from the hater comment, her maturity level was about the same as a 5 year old. Loved how you handled that!

Hollywood said...

I am so going to kill her....

NYCSh0paholic said...

Ewwww how nasty and rude. For someone to really take the time out of their (obviously boring and event-less day/life) to make a comment like that only shows how they are so insecure about themselves that they need to focus their negative energy on someone else. So disgusting. OH, and BTW, you're awesome! =)

Meeka said...

I find their comment rather hilarious because it's just so absurd. You have such a great sense of humour, I love that you don't take things like that seriously!

Samantha Dietz said...

I cant believe you have a hater!!! YOu're so adorable and bubbly and sweet and funny. Wow. People will hate on anyone. That stinks.

Tina Marie said...

Screw haters! We've all dealt with them one way or another. You're way too gorgeous to let a single hater bring you down. Hope they learn their lesson! <3

Beautygirl24 said...

Wow, what a beeyotch! I cant beleive someone would write that! Well you handled yourself very well =)

Kate Gene said...

You ladies are THE best! Thank you SO much for your kind and supportive comments.

We beauty bloggers are a force to be reckoned with, aren't we? ;)

raeissuchadoll ♥ said...

hahaha you are sooo bad ass for this :)

Laura - Emerald Green 88 said...

What a weird insult... burnt poptart??? But anyway, good on you to laugh it off! You're gorgeous and it's not your fault they're projecting their own ugliness onto everyone else!

Marie said...

It's good that you don't get offended and just laugh it off! Not worth any of your time!:D

Glad to be following your blog, have a great week!:D

Miss*Kimmy said...

Ahhh yes, haters.
I'm waiting for my first bite of hate on here also. I've been lucky so far, I had a blog a couple years ago and got some truly NASTY hate mail. Low lifes.
In all honesty, if people are staring at your pics long enough to take in every tiny detail, you're obviously hot to begin with. But you know that!!!
Too funny how you published their pathetic dig on here .. bet they feel like a complete failure in their attempt to get you down.
Anywhoooo ... just wanted to throw in my two cents =)

Jenn said...

WDF your gorgoreous..ignore that fool..

Hardcore Makeup Junkie said...

Wow, people can be such haters. Glad it doesn't phase you, and it shouldn't. You are gorgeous doll, truly! =)

Thanks so much for the sweet comment! I'm loving your blog too...new follower! Can't wait to read your posts.

XOXO

Liana said...

Irene said...

Good for you for not letting some crazy hater get under your (gorgeously tan btw) skin!

Sending some <3 your way girl! :)

Really Petite said...

WOW is all I can say! This person has some serious issues! And guess what? You know you are doing something right when you have haters! And people have NO LIVES! It's amazing how many haters out there!

So glad you are confident enough to not let it get you down! I have haters too and I say screw them!

You are absolutely GORGEOUS and STUNNING and its apparent that these "HATERS" have nothing better to do than to write mean things! We all love you!!!! I gave you a shout out on my recent post as one of my favorite beauty blogs!!! :)-

DSK Steph said...

lol your reply was hilarious! I'll take the cardboard cut out! :P

Andee Layne said...

oh my gosh i cant believe people who write stuff like that! so lame!

MK said...

i'd rather eat a burnt pop tart than pop tart full of shit.

islandmakeups said...

slap that biatch. luv your style gyrlie :)

April said...

Oh Kate those type of people are so jealous of you! You are fabulous! I love your tan--don't let them take that away because it's gorgeousness!

Natalie said...

LOL WHAT THE HECK!? "A burnt pop tart" Who the heck thinks up of stupid crap like that? And lmao @ the picture of "my adorable hubby and me". And "I don't think you're pretty" Wth!? Shes not even saying "you're not pretty" she's saying "I don't think you're pretty". Who freaken cares what "you" think!? I've had some hater action lately too. Someone wrote on my blog that I look like a black girl with liver disease. I just replied by calling her a filthy whore. I wasn't in the mood to think of anything clever to write back.. lmao

But anyway, that Kate Gene is one piece of ace *saying in Chris Farley voice from Billy Madison* LOL

But really, don't let anyone get to you. The older I get, the more I don't care what people say. It's so elementary. And you are gorgeous and you're an awesome girl with an awesome sense of humor! You always say something funny I laugh at in your posts. :)

Ariel said...

Your sense of humor is hilarious, and I actually want a poptart now! xxxx

chola said...

OMG! What a hater! I think you look more like a burnt piece of sourdough toast! LOL. What a loser!

Jessica said...

I love poptarts! Yum! You're hilarious :) xo

J-ezzy said...

i love your response! i've had two haters (chat box) recently and to be honest, i was actually taken back, i hadn't received any hate comments in a looonnng time (it's so high school). you took it with humor and that's admirable. i wanna punch someone in their tits =/ LOL
