Negative comments are a part of the Internet social experience, but the effects of cyber-bullying can be life-altering. Willow Smith and Ashley Benson aim to delete the drama from everyone’s timelines!
The offspring of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith has decided to take action against any type of online attack by teaming up with Seventeen Magazine’s “Delete Digital Drama” campaign.
The 12-year-old singer will be one of the celeb activists behind the initiative, alongside Ashley Benson, to empower young women to disengage from cyber-bullying by deleting harsh and mean comments they see on their Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages. The announcement comes a few days after her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, released a lengthy statement about online bullying towards young celebs via her Facebook page. As technology has grown, the threat of cyber-bullying has moved many to fight against the method that has taken over the traditional after school 3:30 black top fight.
Fashion designer Nanette Lepore has designed trendy tees and tank-tops that have the word “Delete” across the front to keep those aware that cyber-bullying is alive and well. All proceeds from the shirts will benefit, STOMP Out Bullying, a national anti-bullying organization.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner, AnnaSophia Robb, Bridgit Mendler and Ariana Grande are a few others who will be taking part in the campaign, which seeks to empower young women to eliminate cyber-bullying in their lives.
