This scene proves that Sunset Shimmer and Starlight Glimmer have opposite reformation arcs.
Sunset had to face post-bully bullying by those she harassed and people were quick to believe she was her former vile self.
Starlight moved to an entirely different location and nobody gave any second thought to a quasi-fascist dictator.
If this is the reason why kids hate Starlight, than they have got a good and logical reason to loath her appearances.
