NEW YORK - Teens and tweens are using YouTube, to ask the public if they are ugly or not. But the response has been less than positive.
Gossip website, Jezebe l, first reported on the trend that has taken off on YouTube.
The teens and tweens, mostly from ages 12 to 15, sit in front of the computer and tape their confessions of how they feel. The topics range from race, to beauty, to style of dress.
According to the Huffington Post , one video, posted in December of 2010 has received over 3.4 million views and 92,000 comments. "I just wanted to make a random video seeing if I was like, ugly or not? Because a lot of people call me ugly and I think I am ugly ... and fat."
The trend has parents concerned and some say they fear it will do a lot of self-esteem damaged to children.
