I didn't realise pretty privilege was such a thing until I got different treatment from grim men because of how I look | The Sun

A GLAMOROUS TikTok user has revealed how she discovered that “pretty privilege” existed for her for the first time.

Bombshell @lexiihilll said moving to LA was eye-opening and she’d often have uncomfortable encounters with “grim” men who would treat her differently.

Speaking in a video that has racked up 130,000 likes, she said: “I never really knew how big pretty privilege was until I went to LA.

“Obviously it exists all over the world, but I live in Canada and it’s not nearly as much as when I went to California.

“It’s so wrong, particularly when we went out. 

“We pulled up to a club at about 1.30 in the morning and we were waiting in the line to go in.

“The shade, it actually made me feel so disgusting.
