On October 24, Bella Thorne responded to the announcements that Instagram had banned “cosmetic surgery” filters after concerns that they negatively impact on people’s mental health.
Check out Bella's tweet below:
I "So proud of Instagram for removing the plastic surgery themed filters I have been saying this needs to be done for a while this is not good for our mental health and stability ❤️❤️."
This wasn't the first time Bella has spoken out about the use of filters on Instagram before. On Logan Paul's podcast, Impaulsive, Bella insisted that Instagram should ban all photoshopping on their platform.
I "I think with Instagram, they should really snap down on FaceTune and photoshop."
Bella's reasoning is that it "doesn't make sense" for her as the images are not obtainable, so why should people "keep preaching it"? In the end, Bella says that in the long run, there'll be a decrease in suicide rates.
However, fans' reactions to Bella's tweet are split.
One fan argued that filters are just like "make-up", and that some people like to "fix a few flaws that [make] them insecure to feel pretty in a [picture]". Others also said that it's entertaining to see themselves looking different.
Then there are those who believe that Bella was being hypocritical as she "allegedly" underwent surgery herself. These fans are pointing towards her rumoured breast implants, rhinoplasty and lip fillers.
However, there are many who are praising Bella for her stance. They agreed that filters were extremely damaging to mental health. They also revealed that once they used it, it felt as if they had to continue using it, even if they liked how they look in that particular photo.
Bella will be returning to her role as Allison for the sequel to the horror-comedy, The Babysitter (2017), titled The Babysitter 2. The story takes place two years later after the first movie and is expected to premiere in 2020.
