Saoirse Ruane’s Mum Calls Out Online Trolls For ‘Negativity’ On Social Media
Saoirse Ruane’s mum Roseanna has called out online trolls for spreading ‘negativity’ on social media as she urged people to ‘be nice’.
Galway native Saoirse became a household name on the Late Late Toy Show last year when she bravely opened up about her battle with cancer.
Saoirse and the Ruane family, along with her mother and little sister Farrah Rose, share an insight into their everyday uplift on Instagram.
However, Roseanna took to the saoirseandmamma page on Saturday to make followers aware that sending cruel messages online is ‘not acceptable!’
“Thank you so much to everyone for the beautiful supportive messages. We don’t respond to silly nonsense and negativity here, but we believe it’s important to let people know it’s not acceptable either!
‘None of us are perfect, we just try our best. If someone doesn’t like what they see here, they are well within their rights to tap, or even unfollow. We are not harming anyone,” Roseanna wrote.
Explaining that the page is about their life after childhood cancer, living with a second diagnosis of childhood cancer and advocacy for childhood cancer and limb loss, Roseanna said they ‘live with a constant fear of what the future may hold’ .
She added: ‘But we also try to bring a positive feel-good factor to our page which also helps keep us going! For Me (Mom) it’s the dressing up and the roles as it excites me and I love creating content!
‘For Saoírse, it’s to show people how she’s progressing with her recovery (but it’s always on her terms and with her permission)! For Farrah Rose, it’s greeting you every day, which we know helps so much to get through difficult days. We are so grateful to have such amazing followers because without you there would be no point.
‘So let’s be nicer and think twice before sending private DMs here. And to the Marys and Karens (and whoever) who have their own issues, we wish you peace and happiness and hope you find the Instagram accounts that match your values! Merry Christmas Everyone.’
The comments section was full of praise for the Ruanes who continue to spread positivity on social media through their wholesome content.
One person said: ‘Well said beautiful ladies and papa you do it and make us all smile and look forward to the positivity and reality every day.’
Another added: ‘Your two little girls brighten up so many days. Saoìrse is the bravest little girl and I have no doubt that her story has helped so many people.’
While someone wrote: ‘It’s a shame you even have to explain this in a post. If everyone would just stay in their country and think before they speak, practice a little kindness we would all be better off!’
Talk to Extra.ie Last month, Roseanna opened up about how the page has impacted not only her family, but the public for the better.
‘Every day we get messages from people who say it made them think about things in a different way. Farrah-Rose comes on every morning and tells people what day it is, it just helps change people’s morning from a bad one to a good one.
‘This is all positive feedback, we will not tolerate anything negative. When she got sick again in May, the support was just incredible. We can’t thank everyone enough,” she admitted.
