Putting white powder on your face isn't okay either.
That didn't make the news did it? I apologize if this offended you but you must understand it was not initially supposed to be perceived that way at all.'But now Greer - who claimed she 'is never embarrassed' and 'isn't afraid to speak her mind' on her ABC bio - is regretting being so outspoken on the social media platform.'The journey to love is filled with lessons and these lessons are also made on our journey of growth.
