Despite what T-Swift might tell you, dealing with haters isn’t always as easy as shaking it off. So what’s the best way to stand up to a bully? By following the lead of this quick witted 4-year-old, who delivered the pitch perfect response to a playground bully who called her ugly.
According to this plucky preschooler’s version of events, she was minding her own business at school when one of her classmates came up and had the gall to call her “ugly.” Rather than sinking to his level and returning the insult, she chose to rise above it all, because she is the embodiment of poise and grace.
“I didn’t come here to make a fashion statement,” she shot back. “I came here to learn, not look pretty.” BOOM!
That’s not all. When the bully continued to harass her by telling her she “looked bad,” she delivered a flawless retort: “Did you look in the mirror lately?!”
She ends the whole interaction with a very sassy “Buh-bye!” This girl is giving us hope for the next generation of strong women.
