Although Chinese actress Gulinazha (古力娜扎) of Uyghur ethnicity is known for her beauty, the 28-year-old has received a lot of criticism and hate throughout her time in the industry. The non-stop bashing online has inevitably brought her unnecessary pressure and impacted her mental health negatively.
In the Chinese variety show, Hi! Relax <亲爱的请放松>, Gulinazha shared her experiences of being cyberbullied. She disclosed that she used to reflect on every hurtful message that she received. She said, “I had no confidence during that time. I despised that stage in my life. Every little thing I said had to be thought out carefully. I had to consider if what I said at that moment would be questioned or wrong. It felt like everyone hated me.”
She recalls it was the darkest time in her career and she felt so lost. There is even an old clip of Gulinazha bursting into tears on a variety show, and she refuses to relive that moment again by watching it. “I thought everything was going smoothly, but then for some reason, I became really weak when my father passed away. I remember a netizen commented that I cursed my father to his death and that I will be seeing my mother in the mortuary next soon. I thought it was so cruel. You can yell at me for being ugly or a bad actress or anything else.”
As a result of cyberbullying, Gulinazha’s stress has caused her to experience hair loss. Her mother shared, “Her hair started falling everywhere. Our floors would be covered in hair.”
