Dita Von Teese on Social Media
In her interview, Dita Von Teese talks about dealing with negativity on social media.
You have to stop reading the comments, because once you don’t read them and they don’t get a response, it doesn’t affect you. They get bored and go harass someone else. I cleaned up all my social media by not looking at it for the most part, and that’s unfortunate because I like to read what my fans say. Now I have my own official app, and it’s like a glamour club, and that’s where I engage with my fans personally.”
