Having a large following can be an amazing experience, but it can also potentially make you a target for bullies. Rising pop artist Maggie Lindemann is no stranger to this, and recently read some of her mean YouTube comments while telling us about her experience of being bullied and how she’s learned to overcome it.
“I wasn’t, like, a cool kid at all, and people didn’t really like me,” she says. “So I’ve always had to face bullying, but I think now it’s way different. Growing up, it was just always stupid things, like, ‘Oh my gosh, you are social media famous,’ but now people try to dig into your life and think they know you, and then they come at you for things that are really low blows.”
