Fifth Harmony Are VMA Winners, But Sexy MTV Awards Gowns Stir More Cyberbullying

Fifth Harmony singer Ally Brooke Hernandez is taking some sharp critiques of her fashion choices for the MTV VMAs on Twitter. While a lot of fans just loved that look, many others are sounding out, saying she needs a better stylist. Some were even calling Ally the “worst dressed,” according to Hollywood Life.

Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane Hansen, Camila Cabello, and Lauren Jauregui, were dressed to kill for MTV’s VMAs. The five eye-catching young ladies made quite an entrance, wearing five hot little black dresses by top designer Michael Costello.

Even though all the Fifth Harmony ladies were wearing black gowns to the VMAs, Ally Brooke Hernandez was singled out for critique because her dress was the most unique, or perhaps the most revealing. Maybe it is the fishnet mesh that some people don’t like. The dress was not figure flattering, according to some tweets. There were some comments that could have been interpreted as body shaming as well.

The Fifth Harmony girls were certainly a sight to inspire envy with their gorgeous curves and lovely black dresses. Maybe all those comments were rooted in jealousy. Still, there’s no sense being rude, and fans were quick to defend the silver-voiced pop icons from all the self-appointed fashion police.

Normani Kordel, Camila Cabello, and Lauren Jauregui were wearing long sleek black gowns, split up the side, with varying necklines. Dinah Jane Hansen was wearing a short black dress, while Ally Brooke was covered in fishnet mesh.

Fifth Harmony can’t let the fashion police get them down, though. They were the very first to receive a VMA Moonman last night for Song of the Summer. “All in My Head” was named the greatest song of the summer of 2016 according to Spin. The girls can certainly buy plenty of designer dresses after the awards, with the royalties from “All In My Head,” so why should they worry about what people say about one dress. Still, it is the cruelty that hurts.

Ally Brooke isn’t the only Fifth Harmony girl to be cyberbullied this month. According to The New York Daily News, Normani Kordei was so badly cyberbullied during the first part of August, she is currently taking a break from Twitter. The 20-year-old pop star explained to her Twitter followers that the attacks were of a racial nature and that they were unrelenting. She had to take a break. The tweets and accompanying photos were graphic, racial and could have easily been interpreted as threats.

It is believed that the hate mail on twitter was a response to Normani Kordei’s failure to name the best attribute for her groupmate Camila Cabello. It was a Facebook Live interview, and somehow Kordei found herself off guard and at a loss for words when trying to describe fellow harmony singer Camila. It can happen, and all the Fifth Harmony girls insist there is no bad blood between any of them.

Camila Cabello was quick to defend fellow Harmony member Normani Kordei on Twitter. She certainly clarifies her stance at the side of her bandmates.

“I stand by the words ‘love only,’ meaning I won’t tolerate on my timeline any kind of hate, racism, or discrimination towards ANYONE. You don’t have to hate on somebody else to support me – I don’t appreciate it and it’s not what I’m about.”

Fifth Harmony consists of five beautiful girls, still in their early twenties, sharing the joy of their music with the world. So it comes as a surprise to see so much hatred and animosity coming their way. Body shaming, racism and other mean comments aimed at stars amount to cyberbullying. Famous people have feelings too.

Fifth Harmony won the Song of the Summer VMA award, but some people are cyberbullying Ally Brooke and Normani Kordei on Twitter.
