Category: Celebrities Who Were Bullied

Ellen DeGeneres

“I don’t like to make fun of people, it’s a form of bullying. I’ve been the butt of jokes before, a punch line, and that just gave me more fuel to say I’ll never do it.”
 Ellen DeGenres The Grammys

Suzanne Somers

“I believed wrongly that if I could just be perfect he, my father, would love me enough to not have a drink. At night when alcohol made my Dad especially violent, we would all get hurt physically or emotionally. The booze made him act viciously and say terrible things; “You’re stupid, hopeless, worthless, you’re nothing, you’re a big zero.” Sadly, his rants became my reality. I believed I was what he said.”
  Suzanne Somers People Magazine

Tiffany Haddish

“I was told everyday I’d never be nothing. Now I look in the mirror and say, Tiffany Haddish, I love and approve of you,  and it was all worth it. (She used to laugh to keep from crying. Whether it was her mom, or bullies at school.) If I could make them laugh, I was less likely to get beat. I used humor like magic- I felt like I was a little Harry Potter.”  People  Magazine

Julianne Hough

“I got bullied in high school big time. I had just come back from London and was the new kid. People looked at me like, she thinks she’s all that. And because I didn’t know how to talk to them, maybe I did come across that way? I don’t know. I got asked to prom by a guy, and he ended up ditching me that day because the girls told him to do it. They made up rumors when I was on a choir trip that I did naughty things. And then I got invited to a party when I was 15, and my dad took me there because I couldn’t drive –but it was an abandoned house. I was like maybe they’re in the back, and my dad was like I don’t think they are sweetheart.” Red Book Magazine
