Troye Sivan, DNCE, Jack & Jack Are Among The Celebs Speaking Up This Anti-Bullying Week
This week (November 14th-16th) is Anti-Bullying Week in the UK, and loads of our fave celebs have been getting involved in the campaign to show their support.
We spoke to stars including Troye Sivan, DNCE, Martin Garrix and Tinie Tempah to hear about their own experiences with bullying, as well as hearing what they do to deal with negativity in their lives.
DNCE told us that “life is too awesome for worrying what people think about you,” and we’re sure you’ll all agree that's some solid advice.
We also caught up with some of our Geordie fam, and they took the opportunity to talk about the awful sexist, racist and homophobic comments they receive (and have received in the past), as well as sharing advice with anyone who may be affected by bullied and are not sure what to do.
Our gal Marnie explained that "being different isn't a bad thing. When you're older, you'll see that it's actually very special and unique to be different so just remember that guys."
Nathan added that he sees people being nasty to him as 'jealousy', and that when people are being horrible, it means he's 'doing something right in his life' because it's 'making them mad'.
Wise words. So why not help us to spread the positivity and send a message of love and heart emojis to the people you think are awesome?
We love every single person who’s chosen to support Anti-Bullying Week, so thank you for being involved. For more info about what we’ve been doing here at MTV, just head to mtv.co.uk/theinternet.
