To be blunt, bullying is just really not cool. Bullying is something that most people have experienced in their life, whether it be giving or receiving. Many people believe bullying is a school yard petty activity but bullying can take place at work, at home, in sports teams or just basically any situation of interaction.
The thing about bullying is it can happen to anyone for any reason, no one is exempt, not even your favorite celebrities. And a Millie Bobby Brown has recently found herself in this position.
Recently Millie Bobby Brown, (Eleven from Stranger things), had to decline her invitation to the MTV Awards due to an injury, therefor pre-recorded an acceptance speech to play at the event. In the speech, Millie Bobbie Brown directly addressed bullying and in particular. "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all" "there should be no space in this world for bullying, and i'm not going to tolerate it, Neither should you."
You can literally here the roar of the crowd when Millie addresses bullying in her speech. I personally would like to thank Millie, using her celebrity status to share a message that can ACTUALLY BENEFIT PEOPLE is fantastic. If you are a bully or your friends are bullies, it may be time to reflect on what you can do to change that. If your a bully victim, remember your not the only one and often bully's are just expressing feelings that come from a place of unhappiness with in themselves.
