    If can’t mentally handle fame then don’t apply for the show . You take responsibility for your choices . But it’s sad what Happened to the people that lost their lives .

    'Dark skin' b please, she does not see herself as a black women. Halli Berry does more that she does. She thinks if she associates herself with Black concerns it will hinder her in her career. Well she can drop me right out with her ish, I'm not one for White approval. I'm all for diversity but I put my black women needs and concerns above all because at the end of the day we are the last on anyone elses.

      @Sacha MSP I was originally commenting on how she responded to the question. Nothing to do with what a White person said. I guess you'd like black women to know their place and not speak up on any issues any of us feel something towards.

      vanessa amber It’s not an assumption though, it’s more of a fact.. Every youtube video or instagram post I go onto i see a triggered black woman complaing about something a white person did, it’s annoying

    • vanessa amber

      @Sacha MSP first of all there is nothing ' typical' about me and that would mean you assume to know the norms and values of all black women you have encountered. If I put my needs first how am I a victim? Just because I don't seek White approval? When you make sure a wide assumption about many black women you just look like an arse.

    Has no one in the comments heard about Mike Thalassitis who killed himself after being on Love Island because he couldn't cope with life after it. Read up on it, many news media are trying to raise awareness to the mental disorders contestants get after being on reality tv shows.
