Jennifer Aniston Wins July Cybersmiler Of The Month Award

It’s about time somebody told the press to sort themselves out, Jennifer completely deserves this award – well done Jen!

This month we have another worthy winner of the coveted crown for changing peoples lives in a positive way. Last month we crowned (no pun intended!) non other than Prince William himself for being the first member of the UK’s Royal Family to appear on the cover of gay publication Attitude.

This July we are awarding Cybersmiler of the month to the AMAZING Jennifer Aniston for her brutally honest post titled ‘For the Record’.

After enduring an unbelievable amount of public scrutiny and speculation about her personal life Jennifer decided enough was enough and spoke up publicly about the constant shaming of women in the media, going all-in with some brutal truths such as being “fed up with the sport-like scrutiny and body shaming that occurs under the guise of “journalism”, the “First Amendment” and “celebrity news” also adding “The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing.”

“From years of experience, I’ve learned tabloid practices, however dangerous, will not change, at least not any time soon. What can change is our awareness and reaction to the toxic messages buried within these seemingly harmless stories served up as truth and shaping our ideas of who we are. We get to decide how much we buy into what’s being served up, and maybe some day the tabloids will be forced to see the world through a different, more humanized lens because consumers have just stopped buying the bull….”
