At first, Candace commented on her family photo and said, “Wow- I post a family photo and you all find everything you don’t like about it or can make fun of. Do better than that. Please.”
Then, she decided to post something on Facebook about the whole situation.

In a Facebook post, Candace started out by saying, “I posted my family Christmas photo and sadly, there were so many unkind comments.”
She then questioned, “Do you think it’s funny to criticize someone’s children? To make jokes about them?”
“To critique our poses? The direction in which we are looking? Our physical appearance and facial expressions?”
“I wished blessings upon everyone as I shared it in the spirit of a happy new year, yet so many of you came back with jokes about our appearance and criticism of what you thought would have been a better photo,” Candace continued.
“Shame on you. It doesn’t matter if you’re 10 or 90 years old, rude is rude. Be better than that. I’m praying for humanity.”
“Manners and respect. If you don’t like something, just move on. There are people and real feelings behind every screen.”
Candace added a P.S. to her post, concluding everything with, “Please don’t tell me to ignore the “haters.” There were plenty of well meaning people who thought it would be funny to point out things and share their commentary, “with love.” Umm… that’s not love. That’s rude.”
“Try kind. It looks good on everyone.”
