After a recent performance at the legendary Hollywood Bowl, national treasure Mariah Carey, 47, celebrated with her boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka, 34, at Mastros Steakhouse in Beverly Hills.

While toasting the diva’s masterful performance, Carey and Tanaka posed for a photo at the dinner table and it was posted to her Instagram. While the photo should have received positive comments about the loving couple, instead, the trolls came out and attacked Carey and her cleavage-accentuating gown.

After the show it's the after party 🎉 @mastrosofficial

cb_Mariah: you need to lose some weight cause you're starting to look like a whale
mehpeykerdz: You better cover those airbags, you're not young anymore, it"s gros
just_me_vivki: You seriously need to get some clothes that fit you look so uncomfortable in every picture you take
queendre_81: She looks like she can't breathe
stem82: Ill fitting dress

Why in the hell do people write nasty, sexist comments to celebrities on social media? A recent study found that trolls have high levels for two traits: psychopathy and cognitive empathy. Which basically means they don’t care much about other’s feelings and they are “adept at recognizing what will upset someone.”

The good news is that for every nasty troll online, there are plenty of good-hearted people who don’t feel the need to make insulting comments. After seeing all the trolls popping out of the woodwork, Carey’s fans sprang into action, telling her she looked gorgeous.
