Madison Beer Gets Real About Cyberbullying
These days it seems like nobody is safe from the spread of cyber attacks. From suburban middle school kids to celebrities, such as Lorde and Mika Brzezinski, it seems that everyone has dealt with online harassment.
On Monday, 18-year-old YouTube sensation (and rumored Brooklyn Beckham love) Madison Beer became the latest celebrity to share her experience with bullying. During an appearance on the Z100 Morning Show, Beer revealed to host Elvis Duran that she's bullied every single day.
"I deal with this every day; I wake up and have been told to kill myself like 30 times already; it's crazy!" she said. "It's definitely what comes with it, and a lot of people say, 'Yeah, but this is what you signed up for.'"

She continued, "I think that's such a shame to say. It shouldn't come along with me making music and following my dreams. It's upsetting those two go hand-in-hand now because of social media."
Beer explained that she thinks it's alright for people to stand up for themselves, adding that issues like these shouldn't be swept under the rug and ignored. "I think everyone is allowed to defend him or herself, and remember the bullying and hatred comes from them," she added. "I always say when someone says something negative about me, it's really saying something negative about them. If you want to stand up for yourself, then go ahead!"
