Kandi Burruss Discusses Internet Trolls Bullying Daughter Riley

One of the downfalls of being in the public limelight is the onslaught of criticism usually directed at people who happen to be famous. Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV star, Kandi Burruss knows this all too well. The former Xscape vocalist told People in an exclusive interview how infuriated she feels that fans have attacked her daughter’s weight issues and “it boils my blood.”

The online bullying and the comments directed toward her 20-year-old daughter Riley have been “really terrible” and she hates that people do so. Being in the entertainment industry for over 20 years has given her tough skin, but she doesn’t want the criticism directed at her children.

“I despise it. It bothers me so much,” Burruss tells People. “Everybody already knows that Riley dealt with her weight issues growing up in the public eye. People would make comments on her body and say things about her personal look and it really boils my blood.”

“You can deal with anything for yourself, but you don’t want your kids to be bullied online. It’s just really terrible.”

Burrus isn’t the only reality TV personality who is seeing her child being attacked online. Garcelle Beauvais‘s son has been recently talked about in the realm of cyberspace and Bravo had to put out a release chastising those who feel the need to speak ill of and toward him.

“We are shocked and appalled at the social comments directed at Garcelle’s son. We urge our viewers and social followers alike to refrain from targeting our cast and their families with hateful rhetoric.”

Burruss also stated that she has contacted Beauvais about what she and her son are also going through.

“The people who watch our show and who are on our show, sometimes they take things too far, and it’s not cool. It’s crazy. This is a TV show at the end of the day.”

“Words definitely matter,” she says. “I’ve seen one of my kids definitely get bullied multiple times.”
