The other day, the Daily Mail ran a piece by Samantha Brick that wasn’t titled – but should have been – Women Hate Me Because I’m Beautiful. It’s now gone viral, prompting another essay from Brick herself.
To sum up the original piece, though it’s best if you read it for yourself if you have time (and patience) to spare, Brick is basically saying she’s so pretty that every woman hates her.
Female bosses have constantly set obstacles in the path of her career, friends have ditched her because they wrongly assume their husbands fancy her, and women in general have nothing but hate for her.
Men, on the other hand, love her. They love to pay for stuff for her, to open doors and offer small tokens of their appreciation, she wrote.
Ms. Brick even offered examples of the many advantages she has in life for being so incredibly beautiful (photo attached), and they range from having the captain of the plane send champagne to her seat to bartenders refusing her credit card because they want to pay the bill themselves.
We’ll not interpret Ms. Brick’s words in any way, which is why it’s probably best if you read the piece and make up your own mind about it.
The bottom line is that it went viral: over 5,000 people commented on it over at the Mail, it registered over 1 million hits, and sparked an insane debate on Twitter and Facebook.
According to most, Samantha is deluded and she’s so arrogant it’s a wonder she can still fit her head through the door when she goes to work every morning.
Others believe that it’s not her beauty that pushes people away, but her insufferable attitude.
In a new essay, Ms. Brick herself says the outpour of “vitriol” has done nothing but confirm for her the obvious: people do hate her because she’s pretty.
She also compares herself to Angelina Jolie and Victoria Beckham. This piece too is a must read.
“While I’ve been shocked and hurt by the global condemnation, I have just this to say: my detractors have simply proved my point. Their level of anger only underlines that no one in this world is more reviled than a pretty woman,” Samantha Brick says.
