Dancing With The Stars: Constance Hall Shares Cyber Bullying Heartbreak In Emotional Video

Constance Hall has revealed in an emotional video that she chose to star in this year's 'Dancing With The Stars' to combat cyber bullies.

The blogger and mum-of-four, who has often found herself in the firing line of trolls and nasty social media users, opened up about the detrimental effect that cyberbullying has had on her mental health.

“I have had every hateful comment written about me that you can imagine and I’ve spent the last three years pretending that it didn’t affect me,” she said.

 “The truth is it has affected me in ways that I can barely explain. I have been in tears, I have been depressed, I have been almost suicidal, I have wanted to stop writing, I have wanted to hide away and never show my face again.”

Following the news that she would be starring in the realityseries, Hall revealed that she had once again been bombarded with horrible comments from trolls.

“I wanna read about her in The West Australian obituaries,” one wrote, with another saying, “You’ll be able to smell her through my TV."

“She looks like a walking venereal disease that needs to invest in a bra... She looks like she needs to be bathed in a flea bath," she continued.

"I want the people who are being bullied to know that for an adult to stand here and say don’t listen to them, it doesn’t mean anything, you are better than that, I understand how you can’t take that on board, because it f**king hurts, it hurts me so much that I can’t sleep, some days I can’t eat because of the way I get spoken about constantly.”

Constance, however, is determined to not let the haters get to her, adding that by partaking in Dancing With The Stars, she'll have the chance to bring attention to the charity Rafiki Mwema in order to raise funds to help children who are victims of abuse.

“I might come last, I might be voted out first like everybody is saying that I will or I might f**king win the show, but what I am dancing for is every single one of you, every single young person who has to go to school every day or has to catch that train, or has to go to work where you’re bullied and treated unkindly and I’m dancing for you and I want you to know it’s not okay.”
