The 'Ugliest Woman Alive' Is Thanking The Bullies Who Gave Her That Name

Edited By

Anyone who has ever experienced bullying knows how devastating the cruel remarks can be, and how they can stick with you for years to come. But 26-year-old Lizzie Velasquez was born with a rare genetic disorder that impacts nearly everything about her -- her face, muscle tone, brain, eyes, heart and her ability to gain weight. At only 5'2'' and 63 pounds, plus the aged appearance caused by her disorder, Lizzie stands out, making her a target for bullies for nearly all of her life. But Lizzie is living proof that big things can come in small packages! And what she now has to say to her most vicious bullies might just surprise you.



It wasn't until Lizzie started kindergarten, and the other kids shied away from her, that Lizzie first realized she was different. The kids were scared of Lizzie, and often didn't want to sit by her or play with her. She describes it as a "big slap of reality for a five-year-old."

But her parents cheered her on, and Lizzie forged ahead. She worked hard to make friends. She was active in school activities, including cheerleading and the school paper. Things were going well. That is, until she came across a video of herself on YouTube.

It wasn't the video itself that hurt -- it was only 8 seconds long. It was that the video had been titled "The Ugliest Woman Alive." And it was that the video had been viewed 4 million times, and a slew of mean comments filled the bottom of the page. Comments calling her saying her parents should have aborted her. . .that she should be killed with fire. . .that she should do everyone a favor and end her life. And to add insult to injury, all of the comments were mean.
