Millie Bobby Brown was bullied so much she had to switch school

Millie Bobby Brown was bullied so much she had to switch school
Stranger Things star Mille Bobby Brown is a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador, and she specialises in helping children deal with bullying and social media abuse. Sadly, this isn’t just a concern of her, she’s experienced it herself.
She’s now been speaking in an interview, and revealed that she was bullied so much at school she was forced to switch to a different one: “I was bullied at school back in England. I actually switched schools because of it, it created a lot of anxiety and issues that I still deal with today”, she said in Glamour. “I have dealt with situations both in real life and online that are soul-breaking and it genuinely hurts reading some of the things people have said.”
This is why she is using her fame to help: “Young people’s lives are increasingly under pressure. First of all, I want to make sure that children are protected from violence and exploitation… I also want to combat the negativity on social media – I have experienced it – it’s like a disease. It’s negative hate that is genuinely so horrifying to me. Climate change is so important too.”
In real life, you can’t psychically throw someone through a wall. :(
