Kaendi spoke on Social media about being bullied on-line
“To be honest I wasn’t so surprised when random people walked to us last night and showed us all these candid pictures of us that have been posted the whole evening. It happened to us before, same time last year and all the nasty comments left me nothing but worries and tears”
“This year though, on the other hand, Thorsten and I, unexpectedly, are so thankful and overwhelmed by the storm of your huge support. We never meant to try to be under the spotlight and all.”
They even have their own official Facebook group.
