Beauty standards are deeply engraved in our society whether we like it or not. Although there are revolutionary activists who are trying to alter these kinds of cultural aspects, it is difficult to disregard others’ perceptions of beauty.
Just as when Cambodian Facebook user Lucy LuvElla tries to break the Western standard of beauty, some netizens seem to fail to understand the context of love without limit and boundaries.
Lucy posted on her Facebook account a series of her family photos. Netizens threw their mixed reactions upon seeing Lucy’s husband who is reportedly a black-skinned man. People are calling him ‘lucky’ for being able to capture Lucy’s gorgeous beauty.
Aside from the compliments, other netizens seem to be sarcastic. Others are accusing Lucy of staying with her husband because of his money.
