Cathy Hummels: Starts a storm with depression

1/5

German influencer Cathy Hummels started a storm with her post on Instagram.

Influencer Cathy Hummels (34) would probably not like to assume bad intentions. With a post on Instagram, the German wanted to encourage people with depression. In her snap, she looks into the camera with sparkly sunglasses and writes: “When you’re depressed, everything is often black and white. Meanwhile, the color is much nicer. But how do you get color into your gloomy thought carousel? One factor that can help is light. Sun. Let’s shine.” Among them, Hummels names a brand of sunglasses.

Not only did the post spark a storm of outrage among many followers, the German Depression League (DDL) also said: “We are appalled!” the organization announced.
