Abstract

Social Media platforms are giving open access to everyone. Everyone is getting the power to write something in someone’s post hiding behind the monitor. However, the problem is that people are trying to carry their offline identity to the online platform and they are trying to impose misogynist hegemonic masculine power on women by bullying them. As celebrities' lives are very public, they are often being the victim of bullying and online harassment. Especially, women celebrities are the victim of online bullying and harassment more in comparison with male celebrities. Moreover, perpetrators think that they can say anything about them as it’s not possible to identify them or there are no strict laws against cyberbullying. Because of these situations women celebrities are the victim of misogynist internet objectification, cyberbullying, and online harassment. After following the content analysis method, it’s been noticed that they are being bullied for their personal life, dresses, or age. Some people are also trying to impose their thought on them regarding their matter. Women celebrities are just praised for their beauty. The appreciation regarding their work is not that noticeable among followers’ comments. This study will provide a deep insight into how embodied experiences or offline identities of misogynistic people are carried away to online platforms like Facebook and how they are trying to defame women celebrities and establish power over them. The lack of proper knowledge regarding digital security is increasing the objectification of celebrities and women on social media platforms.
