Madison Beer is opening up about dealing with negative reactions online.
Beer, 18, stopped by the Z100 Morning Show and in her interview with host Elvis Duran, the singer talked about dealing with online bullying.
“I deal with this every day; I wake up and have been told to kill myself like 30 times already; it’s crazy! It’s definitely what comes with it, and a lot of people say, ‘Yeah, but this is what you signed up for’,” she admitted.
“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 continued.
For the YouTube star, her goal is to show her fans that they should be able to stand up for themselves and not ignore those bullying them. “I think a lot of people would say ignore it, move on, and don’t pay any attention to it. But, I always think it’s OK to stand up for yourself, you shouldn’t have to ignore things or brush things under the rug,” Beer said.
Beer believes everyone is entitled to defending themselves and not to feel responsible for being bullied. “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!” she explained.
