'Internet bullying contributes to disordered eating'

On first instinct you might think it would completely amazing to look like an actual celebrity, but one person who's come forward with the darker side of being a celeb doppelganger is Keitra Jane, who just so happens to look a lot like Taylor Swift.

Keitra, who you might recognise for starring in Alex Boye's music video for 'African Hipster', gets stopped just about everywhere by fans thinking she's the singer: "The last couple times I traveled I had my cat, Marissa Cooper with me, and a bunch of girls thought that it was Taylor's cat, Meredith," she told Seventeen.com.

Explaining that the YouTube comments under Alex's music video were hurtful about her appearance, she continued: "My friends kept sending me photos of these comments that would say just inappropriate things like 'Taylor with a bigger rack/boobs. One comment caught my eye. It said 'a fatter Taylor Swift.'"

Although Keitra is healthy and happy now, she has suffered with body dysmorphia in the past and argued that people on the internet should really be more careful with the words they post: "Internet bullying contributes to disordered eating. People need to understand that nothing on the internet goes unnoticed, and when you publicize your comments or suggestions you aren't just writing on a wall, you're writing to a real person."

Well said.
