The Epic Ascent To Stardom

Barker’s Past Fame

Children should not use social media, without a doubt. Alabama Barker, who is only ten years old, has endured cruel online harassment. She received criticism for her appearance and way of life from well-known internet personality RiceGum, who has over 2 million YouTube subscribers, in June 2016. Alabama’s Instagram page was displayed to his fans in a video that he put on his YouTube channel.

He made note of the fact that Alabama doesn’t act her age, wears too much makeup, poses suggestively, and generally leads a lifestyle that is inappropriate for a child her age. Notably, he even mentioned that Instagram’s minimum age requirement for users is 13 years old.

Soon after he shared the video, his followers inundated Alabama’s Instagram account with derogatory remarks, with some even accusing her parents of being horrible parents. When Travis Barker threatened RiceGum in public by sharing a photo of him on his own Instagram account, things quickly got out of hand. Following suit, Shanna Moakler retaliated against RiceGum on his Twitter account for harassing and mocking her 10-year-old daughter.

In response, RiceGum merely stated that he wasn’t even nasty to her and was merely commenting on what he had observed on her public account. After a while, YouTube removed the original video that RiceGum had uploaded, alleging issues with bullying and privacy.

Shanna Moakler, Alabama’s mother, decided to film a documentary about the issue after becoming determined to stop cyberbullying. She traveled the nation and spoke with school administrators. Alabama said that she simply deletes hateful comments when asked how she handles them.
