Everyone should be aware that Popsugar is okay with featuring an article that has an abusive couple in it and why you should reconsider patroning this app, and moreover, the Popsugar collective.
In one of their articles, they praise a notorious abuser and her relationship as "everything" and "a fairytale" when this claim couldn't be further from the truth. I know the truth because, unfortunately, for the last two years I've gotten to bear witness for the victim in this relationship - my sister, Hannah.
The regrettable relationship that Popsugar praises is an extremely abusive one that features screaming, name-calling, (suicide and violence) threats, intimidation, and commands for extreme isolation and control of the victim from friends and family. This relationship featured in their article is incredibly volatile, toxic, and abusive.
I implore Popsugar to do the right thing and pull their article that features the American brides wedding eloping to Iceland to make a stand against domestic violence.
What's even more disgusting is that I originally let Popsugar know this over a year ago, in addition to providing them with screenshoted evidence of the abuse, and they have failed to follow up with me or look more into it. I know there's been a pandemic going, but abuse is a serious issue and Popsugar has treated it as anything but. At this point, it's more than obvious I'm not going to get a response.
Dealing with my sister in an abusive relationship has been hard enough for my family, and Popsugars dismissive and insensitive response in which they are siding with my sister's abuser is demoralizing at best.
I tell everyone I know about Popsugar, their unacceptable journalism and conduct.
In addition, they've tried to delete and silence me multiple times when trying to speak out against this and their conduct. Shame on Popsugar. You're part of the reason people have an issue speaking out against abuse.
Below are examples of how my sister is forced to live with little control over her personal life. She is constantly beraded, blamed, and belittled for doing what would otherwise be innocent tasks (in this example running errands). Popsugar evidently thinks this is acceptable, or at-least not concerning enough to do anything:
