WATCH: Beauty Blogger Bares Skin to Reveal Ugly Truth About Online Harassment

Em Ford is a 20-year-old beauty blogger from London who does an amazing job of applying makeup and showing others how to do it online.

She also suffers from adult acne (which some say makeup might exacerbate) and decided she should reveal all to her viewers on YouTube to show that even people the world considers beautiful have flaws.

The amount of ugly hate and vicious name-calling her revelation drew is shocking and depressing to behold. Anonymous commenters called her "disgusting," "revolting" and said, "I can't even look at you." It speaks volumes about why women feel they have to hide behind a mask of makeup, which by the way, they are also criticized for. 

The whole thing raises the question, again, wtf is wrong with people?

Watch her heartbreaking, eye-opening piece:
