The We R Who We R singer is taking a stand against online trolls
Kesha has backed a powerful campaign that aims to end online harassment and trolling.
The pop star has signed up to the #HackHarassment movement – which was founded by Intel, Vox Media and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation.
The campaign aims to make the internet a more inclusive, accepting and supportive environment that everyone can feel secure in.
We R Who We R singer Kesha features in two Public Service Announcement videos – aimed at teens and young adults.
One video show the star standing in silence as a series of slurs and insults written in graffiti appear across the screen.
The second video shows the singer encouraging fans to speak up against online harassment.
Taking to Instagram, Kesha explained she is “honoured” to be part of the project.
“This issue is near and dear to my heart, as I have been bullied online for many years,” Kesha wrote on Instagram of her decision to get involved with #HackHarassment,” she wrote alongside a selfie on the social media app.
“I know I’m not alone in that… The internet and social media can be so helpful in many ways, but one downside is that some people feel it’s okay to hide behind a screen and be hateful to others. I, for one, believe no one should be subjected to harassment online,” she added.
