“My fans are always up for supporting a great cause. It’s one of the things I’m most proud of as an entertainer. I hope they see 'BULLY' with their friends and help start the conversation so we can end bullying.”
Justin Bieber is among the mega-list of celebs supporting our new-favorite documentary. Over 13 million teens will be bullied in the U.S. this year. What the what? We couldn’t believe it either. Or the fact that 160,000 young people skip school every day because of it.
Directed by Lee Hirsch, “BULLY” adds a human face to these shocking stats. The film follows five teens (and their families) who are tormented daily by their classmates—documenting every painful, real life moment.
After some FIERCE petitioning, the film is now rated PG-13. (Woot Woot!) This means it can now be shown in classrooms.
“BULLY” debuted March 30 and will hit theaters everywhere April 13. Want to put an end to this cycle of violence?
