Twitter User Kerat Apologised For Her Tweet
just a general tweet which was in no way or manner meant to attack girls in the way they dress or post pictures. my aim was towards people who post a revealing pic and go public to chase clout but even in that sense I understand how it could be offending. and for that i apologize

We, as a society, have a tendency to jump to quick and very vocal judgements in the name of propriety. One area, where this has been painfully obvious for decades is the public shaming of women and men, who wear clothes that are ‘revealing.’ The Twitter user did apologise for her tweet, but it is important to note that fashion is a form of self-expression and our sense of personal style grows over time. There is nothing to be embarrassed about the clothing one choose to wear.
