Journalist Samantha Brick ridiculed on Twitter for complaining she is too pretty

Samantha-Brick Samantha Brick, 41, bemoaned her lack of female friends, constant amorous attention and jealousy at the hands of strangers in her bizarre confessional, in a bid to explain why her “lovely looks” cause her such misery.

Posing the conundrum “why women hate me for being beautiful”, Brick complains her female acquaintances viewed her as a threat, stating they “find nothing more annoying than someone else being the most attractive girl in a room.”

Her article, published by the Daily Mail, has now opened up a storm of mockery online, as commentators took to Twitter to express their disgust.

The term “Samantha Brick” was used so many time it has become a trending topic, and even appears to have made it into rhyming slang.

“Erm, am I missing something??” one reader asked. “Is this some new cockney rhyming slang? As in ‘she sounds like a complete Samantha Brick if you ask me’?”

Another concluded: “Please rest assured that I would place you somewhere between ‘plain’ and ‘ordinary’, and would not give you a second glance”.

The Mail’s own website has already been flooded with more than 2,000 comments from outraged readers, mocking her “fantasy world” and expressing their own candid feelings about her “tall, slim, blonde” appearance.

One said: “Is it just me, or is this woman actually not nearly as attractive as she thinks she is?”

Another added: “From that article alone, I can think of 15 reasons to dislike Samantha Brick. Her intimidating beauty isn't one of them.”

Many have taken to personally abusing her looks, pointing out aesthetic flaws based on the photographs attached to the article.

Even fellow journalists have joined the discussion, with Sunday Times columnist India Knight commenting: “Late to the party but HAHAHAHA Samantha Brick. Oh dear.”

DJ Lauren Laverne said: “Why do people WRITE articles like this? And why am I reading it?” and the Times’ Janice Turner wrote: “I think only valid response is colossal eye roll then silence.”
