A before-and-after photo of Ashley VanPevenage who is  20 years old, was posted earlier in the year by a makeup artist friend, who helped show her how to cover up her blemishes. Months later, the photo was picked up on social media by users who reposted the picture with really nasty comments.

“I’ll spend time with her, as long as I never see her before 10 am,” wrote one person, while another suggested she was proof why men should take women “swimming on the first date.”

Ashley said that she learned the photo had turned into a meme after recently finding her photo on her Instagram feed with “thousands and thousands” of mean remarks. The picture also has been retweeted on Twitter thousands and thousands of times.

“They’re very disturbing and nasty comments,” VanPevenage said, responding to the critics in a YouTube video.


“I used to be entertained by many memes,” VanPevenage said, until she became the subject of one. The experience left her feeling hurt and shattered her confidence.

“I have never been one to be uncomfortable with going out in public in my natural skin and my natural hair until this picture was posted,” she said.
