Lilly Singh calls for an end to girl-on-girl hate with YouTube challenge

YouTuber Lilly Singh may have 7.4 million subscribers, but she knows the vast majority—6 million—are women, and is challenging them to end girl-on-girl hate with a new video.

“Together we can show the world how lame girl-on-girl hate is, and how awesome it is to support one another and build women up,” said Singh in her latest clip.

Singh called on her fellow female YouTube influencers like Grace Helbig, MirandaSings, Hannah Hart, and Kandee Johnson to be part of her video to encourage the #GirlLove Challenge. They’re encouraging women to post a compliment to another woman on social media with the hashtag #GirlLove to spread the message, and to share the original video. Singh pledged the money her video raises from advertising revenue to the Malala Fund to support educating girls worldwide. 

“Girl-on-girl hate sucks, so let’s stop it,” Singh concluded. It already has more than half a million views.
