HomeNEWSGLOBALInternet model shuts down incredibly sexist tweet April 1, 2016 GLOBAL Internet sensation, singer and model Acacia Brinley, 18, has defended women rights after Vine star Taylor Caniff’s, 20, posted an incredibly sexist tweet a few days ago. Caniff’s sexist tweet, deleted after the back-and-forth argument between the young Internet sensations went viral, was there long enough for someone to screenshot it. Acacia Brinley, new to activism acts, called out the Vine star for his thoughtless posts, and encouraged all of her young followers to defend women rights and created the hashtag #IAmNotAProp. I had to re-read this several times to make sure you were actually that stupid. https://t.co/Ui6DtICaAJ — Acacia Brinley (@AcaciaBrinley) 27 March 2016 No but it’s called a fucking paid talented actress like the girls who pretend to like your arrogant ass. https://t.co/0TJdllu3Yj — Acacia Brinley (@AcaciaBrinley) 27 March 2016 #IAmNotAProp — Acacia Brinley (@AcaciaBrinley) 27 March 2016 With over 710,000 Twitter followers, Brinley used her social power in the best way possible – making more and more young people stand up, loud and proud, against prejudice and sexism. girls are not made for men to play around like toys in music videos! we’re beautiful, strong, educated, & independent women! #IAmNotAProp — shay (@vapormendes) 27 March 2016 girls will not be used for your needs and benefits!!! #IAmNotAProp — ㅤ (@artfuIashton) 27 March 2016 But as the common stance “the best defence is a good offence”, Caniff, instead of taking it all on himself and apologising, replied in the least distasteful way ever – by body shaming Brinley in true sexist form. Ladies, if you still like this misogynistic, disrespectful boy after this, I will be shocked. Actually disgusted. pic.twitter.com/56tKVW8jhL — Acacia Brinley (@AcaciaBrinley) 27 March 2016 And why in 21st century, after so many years fighting for women rights and equality, a young man is capable of saying something like that? Well, Taylor realised his mistake – when it was a bit too late – and eventually, but not directly, apologised for his unfortunate words. sometimes you just need forgiveness to make things right… Everyone deserve a chance to prove themselves — Taylor Caniff (@taylorcaniff) 29 March 2016 Hopefully next time someone, especially with so many young followers, will think twice before saying something as disrespectful. people like taylor caniff are the reason why we need feminism. #IAmNotAProp — satan,, 152 (@deadpoolmaIum) 27 March 2016 Natalia Kaluza Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window) Related Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
