What exactly is the definition of beauty? Is it somebody’s skin colour?  flawless skin? or perfect body shape?

Beauty is one of the words that have been greatly misunderstood and distorted. People have formed images in their heads of what they want beauty to be.

Aileen Audrey has become an object of cyber bullying after  winning the hotly contested Miss Maseno pageant which was held on 23 March this month. Her crime? Not being “beautiful” enough to be the face of Maseno University.

Some netizens took to social media to troll and created mean memes to humiliate her. It is so sad that those humiliating her opted to use her skin colour as the reason as to why she didn’t “deserve” the title.

The event judges however made it clear that their decision was based on professionalism purely and not mere looks.

A number of influencers have since taken to social media to offer her support through hash-tags such as #IstandwithMissMaseno and #blackisbeautiful. The supporters also cautioned netizens against bullying her or anyone else online as cyber bullying is one of the major causes of depression and suicide.
