Between perfect ‘grams and snaps, it’s easy to forget the power we hold in the palm of our hands.

AT&T takes the infinite magic of connectivity seriously. While a tap or swipe can instantly deliver a “like” from your crush or BFF, it can also serve up unexpected hate.

I Never Meant to Troll

Things got kind of out of control.

It started when Haley brought a really ugly backpack to school. I showed my girl Kat and said,
“Oh that’s ratchet.”

Kat was like,
“I’m not surprised, she doesn’t even live here. She uses her grandma’s address.”

I didn’t really think it was weird, but Kat did and she’s the coolest girl in class, so I was like,
“Ew. She doesn’t even belong here?”

We started a group Gchat, then a text chain, and a Facebook group called “Haley’s Broke Life” where we posted secret photos.

Haley found out, and we got called into Principal Warren’s office. She said what we did was against school policy. We were suspended for two weeks.

While I was suspended I wrote a letter to Haley, apologizing. I actually always really liked her; it all just snowballed. Haley accepted my apology, and we’ve even started hanging out. I’m really lucky how it all turned out. I’ll be watching what I say from now on; even if I’m just joking.

How to Spot a Hater in their Natural Habitat

Chances are you’ve noticed a hater lurking online. Anyone is fair game, so watch your backs (and phones), and remember there’s an entire community standing up to negativity online saying #LaterHaters.

Facebook

Haters roam in broad daylight throwing shade. Nothing is safe. Your after school hustle, your social life, and even what you ate for lunch are all up for hating.

Instagram

Haters get real creative, finding a photo of you lookin’ a hot mess and then making a meme. No, you’re not being sensitive; they’re a hater.

Texts

Accidentally got sent a text talking trash about you when it was clearly meant for someone else. Dang, that’s a hater in your texts

Snaps

Someone took a screenshot of your embarrassing selfie then blasted you in a group message? Blow that ish off, because that’s definitely a hater.

Haters aren’t just behind a screen. They can live anywhere, you might even have a hater in your own group of friends. What starts out as a joke is no longer funny if the lol’s are at someone else’s expense. If things go too far, find an adult you trust to step in. They’re on your side no matter what and know exactly how to say #LaterHaters.
