Once Netflix releases the fourth season of Weird thingsThe series quickly became the hottest thing in the entertainment industry. Viewership increased, making the show The biggest English-language Netflix series of all time. There were a lot of reasons Stranger Things“The success, including poignant horror atmosphere, terrifying villain and climax in the legends of The Upside Down. Now, a month after the release of Volume 2, the internet is still ablaze. All kinds of weird fan theoriesIncluding One related to Mrs. Karen Wheeler.
However, fan theories aren’t the only ones Weird things– Relevant content is circulating online right now. Recently, Natalia Dyer (who plays Nancy Wheeler) became the recipient of some unsolicited beauty advice from a nurse practitioner on TikTok. completely undesirable, Miranda Wilson He suggested several plastic surgery options that would help improve Dyer’s appearance. There are many issues with virtual consultation, but here’s a good starting point: Natalia Dyer’s appearance has never been an issue.
Viral TikTok suggested slimming Dyer’s muscles (connected to her jaw), chin fillers (to make her chin more prominent) and lip fillers (to get a stronger frown). She even suggested Botox to lift Dyer’s eyebrows. The entire ‘consultation’ was designed with the goal of making the Dyer head more ‘heart shaped’ with more specific features. Immediately, Weird things Fans rallied to defend Dyer, describing TikTock as rude, offensive and unnecessary. Due to the backlash, Wilson removed his “advice” and Apologizing video released With a comment saying,
“#greenscreen in the hope of clearing the air I wasn’t suggesting that Natalia needed any of this work, it was just an example. Of course Natalia is absolutely amazing the way she is… That’s why she was so successful. Her photo was just an example. I’m sorry if considered People say that as mean or rude, that was not my intention at all.”
While Wilson’s apology may or may not have been accepted before Weird things Fans, this only proves her foolishness. Obviously, she was trying to take advantage of Weird thingsPopular in order to promote her own career. While some may consider this good marketing, it is ultimately problematic because it came at the expense of another individual. As of now, Natalia Dyer has not responded to TikTok, as she maintains a limited presence on social media, but the problem remains.
In fact, the problem is deeper than Natalia Dyer. Wilson’s “consultation” is really just a symbol of the unrealistic beauty standards that define social media. Lots of people (especially young people) spend countless hours trying to get the perfect angle, filter, and background for their statuses and profile pictures. It’s as if their Instagram/TikTok/Snapchat profiles are worth more than their actual lives. So, when someone—a plastic surgery specialist—suggests that a very successful movie star just doesn’t look good enough for social media, they go beyond the commercials. It affects how children see themselves.
The bottom line is that individuality should be celebrated, no matter what agenda social media is trying to advance. To try to fit everyone into some kind of supposed stereotype is to the detriment of the well-being of society and the self-images of individuals. People need to build, not demolish – and all too often, social media is used to promote an unrealistic and unnecessary standard. Luckily , Stranger Things Fans realized that Natalia Dyer. We hope the rest of your social media will take notice.
