Demi Lovato was bullied growing up

Demi Lovato was among the millions of kids in middle school and high school that are bullied terribly each year. After seventh grade, her mom saw the condition to be too dangerous mentally for Demi and so she was home schooled all through high school. She later received her high school diploma in 2009, one full year ahead of her peers. Demi told People’s Magazine “I had a really tough time when I was in middle school. People would write ‘hate petitions’ [about me] and send them around to be signed. They’d have CD-bashing parties of my demos. They’d come to my house, stand across the street and yell things. It was a very emotional time for me, and all I wanted to do was get away,”. In 2012, Demi became the new ambassador for Secret’s “Mean Stinks” campaign, a movement that encourages young girls to “gang up for good” to help fight against bullying in schools.
