Girlies, One Direction has a new anti-bullying campaign with Office Depot that we think is pretty great. As part of the partnership, the band recently released a series of interviews featuring each member talking about bullying. In the short but sweet clips, Harry, Zayn, Liam, Niall and Louis talk about and give advice for dealing with hate, both online and off, and why schools should be focusing more attention on efforts to end bullying.
“I think in a way bullying might be easier with the likes of social networking,” said Louis. “You will get some kids that get bullied that are a bit more feisty and brave and they can stand up for themselves, whereas other people are quite timid and are less confident.”
“So many of the people being bullied are scared to say that they’re being bullied,” Harry said. “It’s just important that people talk about it, because it is a problem.”
We’re applauding 1D for speaking out on such an important topic! Check out the videos below:
Plus, here’s a sneak peak at the band’s upcoming new single, “Best Song Ever.” It’s pretty cute!
