Pretty Privilege – Golden Goose or Rotten Egg?
Emily Adonna, a California-based TikToker, has come forward to share the drawbacks of being beautiful, claiming that “pretty privilege” isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
It’s Not All It’s Cracked Up to Be
In a series of TikTok clips, Emily delves into the topic, acknowledging the potential hate she may receive for her statements.
She admits, “Pretty privilege is real, but it also has its downsides.”
The Sexual Harassment Is Constant

Being Taken Advantage
People often ignore her boundaries, and unwanted touching and even assaults from strangers have become a regular occurrence.
She Even Lost a Job Over It

Emily also notes that people’s behavior changes based on her appearance.
They Stop When She’s at Her Worst
She explains, “When I look disheveled, people keep their hands to themselves.”
TikTok Is Divided
Not everyone agrees with her perspective. Some TikTokers argue that harassment is not exclusive to those deemed conventionally attractive.
But Some Users Agree
Emily finds support from others who believe she’s onto something, “as a girl who doesn’t have pretty privilege and is friends with girls who are, it’s 1000% true people just touch y’all for no reason.”
Disgraceful Abuse on the App
Some commenters suggest that critics only hate because of her beauty, “Pretty = dumb I don’t think you’ve ever finished a book.”

She Was Groomed

Asserting her right to be free from objectification, Emily passionately states, “I should never have to feel disembodied, regardless of how I look.”
