Sadly, we still live in a time where people think it’s okay to publicly ridicule others for their appearance. But people like Kerry Whittaker, a supermarket worker shamed for her makeup, are making a big difference by speaking up about it.

Whittaker posted on Facebook about an experience she had at work. Whittaker, who also does makeup on the side, has since removed the post after it went viral — but the words she shared should still be heard.

Whittaker’s second point is pretty amazing, and oh so true.

By openly mocking someone in public, the woman in question is pretty much teaching her daughter that bullying is okay.

As for her third point, good for her. A lot of people feel confident by wearing makeup, and Whittaker definitely seems like she’s a pro.

In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if people contacted her after her post went viral to set up appointments.

One thing’s for sure — Whittaker definitely gained a lot of fans. People who read her story posted words of support on her Instagram.


We definitely applaud Whittaker for making this encounter public. Judgment and discrimination both need to go, and her self-confidence about the situation makes her even more beautiful.
