One 11 year old boy is currently making international headlines for his attempts to fight against the online bullies.
Bullying in real life can be quite catastrophic, especially for young kids, who are subjected to it on regular basis. Unfortunately, cyber bullying has become even more popular these days and it’s affecting kids worldwide. Mean comments and pictures coming from social media users can ruin your whole day or even have a negative effect on you on a larger scale. And negative comments in videos on YouTube are also seriously affecting the authors of those videos. In fact, they can be so mean and hurtful that one particular 11 year old kid has decided to stand up to online bullying and to fight against the cyber bullies.
Meet Logan – the 11 year old boy, who has become an Internet sensation after his father posted a video of Logan’s reaction to the bullies on YouTube. Many YouTube users have made hurtful statements regarding Logan’s looks. Some of them have called him a “piggy” and a “stupid fatso”, while others have even taken matters to a whole new level by stating they hope he gets cancer or dies. Logan’s dad, Josh Fairbanks, has uploaded videos of his 11 year old before and the comments underneath them are so heart-breaking that Logan has finally decided to join the fight against bullying. In the video, which is just over 2 minutes long, the boy explains how these comments have made him feel frustrated and how he wants to encourage others, who are suffering because of bullies, to feel better about themselves.
Logan’s video was uploaded on his dad’s YouTube channel on the 7th of July this year and it has already reached more than 169,000 views.
