Bullying is topical because it can happen to almost anyone. It is also one of the most talked about mental health issues today. Bullies usually choose younger or weaker victims because they want to make sure they can exert the power they need over them. However, most people do not think of celebrities being bullied as children. According to heat Celebrity News published today, film star Jennifer Lawrence was bullied in school. “The actress has revealed that she was bullied so much that she was forced to change school ‘a lot’ to avoid the taunts. She said on one memorable occasion a bully made her hand out invites to the girl’s birthday party… A party Jennifer wasn’t invited to. "That was fine," Jennifer said. "I just hocked a loogie on [the invites] and threw them in the trash can." A loogie is a large glob of spit.
According to Inquistr, “Lawrence survived being bullied in grade school and she learned a few lessons from her experience. The actress even developed a life motto, “Don’t worry about the bitches.” She said,” “That could be a good motto, because you come across people like that throughout your life.”
Actress Jennifer Lawrence is best-known for playing Katniss Everdeen in “The Hunger Games” (2012). In 2010 she won an Academy Award and Golden Globe nomination for “Winter’s Bone.” Jennifer may be at the height of her career but states, I’m one of the most untalented people. Literally, acting is the only thing I can do — and I don’t know if I really know how to do that.”
According to Ambassadors 4 Kids Club, “Bullying is a form of child abuse and four out of 10 children will drop out of high school this year because they are being bullied at school or abused at home. Thirty percent of U.S. students in grades six through 10 are involved in moderate or frequent bullying - as bullies, as victims, or as both - according to the results of the first national school bullying statistics and cyber bullying statistics survey on this subject. School bullying and cyber bullying are increasingly viewed as an important contributor to youth violence, including homicide and suicide.
Jennifer Lawrence did not quit school but she changed schools several times to avoid her tormentors.
