Bullying sucks. Obviously, right? When I high school, during my very first leading role in a play, during my very first entrance in the very first performance, the lights went up and some douchebag yelled “yo, is she fat?” Also, I used to get punched and kicked and pinched by some asshole with a rattail in elementary school. It’s a tough life, you know? I’d never make fun of someone opening up about the pain they felt over being bullied.
But you know what I will make fun of? This stuff that Lindsay Lohan tweeted about being bullied in high school for starring in movies:
I was actually bullied @ my public school when i would leave to film. Whenever I came back… girls & boys would call me names.
They would also mock me because of my home situation, when people found out that my father was in jail..
they would yell things, try to trip me & more…I moved to home-schooling instead. In 11th grade. I stuck it out for a while.
This was all tweeted at Katie Couric, by the way, who just did a show on bullying.
This is the same as all the girls who say “no, you don’t understand, it’s really hard to be this pretty!” Obviously, the part about her home situation is a lot more understandable, but she will never, ever get any sympathy for being a movie star. Like, “oh, girlfriend, super sorry that you got to live your dream and become very rich and famous for being a pretty, talented, thin white girl!” That’s just not going to happen.
