Sometimes it’s comforting for bully victims to know that a star has also had a problem with bullying. Disney actress Demi Lovato, who has starring roles in “Camp Rock” and “Sonny with a Chance” has recently confided about her bullying experiences on the Ellen Degeneres show.
Bullying was so bad for Demi that she had to stop going to school and be home schooled. Demi told Ellen on her show:
I never really understood why [I was being bullied] until looking back. I had a different lifestyle then everyone else. I want to help with bullying,” she says. “Because there are girls who can’t just up and home-school and focus on their career.
Demi also has a message that she shared on YOU TUBE for victims of bullying.
Demi joins a long list of celebrities who are now speaking out about what happened to them during their childhood years and how bullying affected them. Hopefully their speaking out will help someone who feels alone in their pain from bullying understand that even famous people have had to deal with bullying in their lives.
