Baby Triggy, a teenage YouTube sensation, will be visiting to raise awareness about the harmful effects of Cyber Bullying.
According to Tracy Smith, correspondent for “CBS News Sunday Morning,” as many as 160,000 students stay home on any given day because they're afraid of bullies, this is a huge problem for American kids. It's estimated that since 1983, there've been more than 150 documented cases of young people committing suicide after being bullied. The Obama administration is aware of this national crisis and it is time to put an end to the bullying.
Baby Triggy, who featured, produced and co-wrote “My Jeans” music video has received over 14 million views in less than 8 months, is no stranger to Cyber Bullying. As a young person who has received media attention during his blossoming career, Baby Triggy has learned that not all fans can be friendly. Baby Triggy has found himself the victim of Cyber Bullying on a few occasions and has already assisted other victims who have been Cyber Bullied. The message is clear and the time is now, we must put an end to the Bullying.
Baby Triggy along with his management company, True Story Management. LLC, will be touring from state to state, talking with elementary and middle school - aged children in an attempt to educate the students on the harmful effects of Cyber Bullying. The goal is encourage the students to take a stand against the bullies and also to let them know they have people they can trust to contact. The prelude to Baby Triggy’s visit to the schools is a fundraiser in which 20% of proceeds go towards the awareness of Cyber Bullying.
In addition to speaking with the students at the schools, Baby Triggy will perform one his hit songs during the “DEATH to Cyber Bullying” presentation. Baby Triggy has proven his ability to identify with young students and being that he is a peer, the children listen during his influential speech.
“Being bullied over the Internet is hard for anyone to deal with. It's tormenting and leaves the victim feeling helpless,” stated Curtis L. Anderson, Father and President of True Story Management. LLC. “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can KILL. Kids today are committing suicide and hurting each other over Cyber Bullying, we need to do something.”
Cyber Bullying is the use of the Internet and related technologies to harm other people, in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner. As it has become more common in society, particularly among young people, legislation and awareness campaigns have arisen to combat it.
In most cases, these damaging statements are published on the Internet and may never be removed. These statements are detrimental to children and the Bullying often times will carry from the Internet to the school hallways. The DEATH to Cyber Bullying campaign will be speaking to the websites, to hold the sites more accountable for the content on their site and protecting the victims of Cyber Bullying. In most cases, the bully and the person bullied are both victims of Cyber Bullying.
Many States have penalties for the kids who are Cyber Bullying, which range from school/parent interventions to misdemeanors and felonies with detention, suspension, and expulsion in between. Some of these laws promote Internet safety education or curriculum that include Cyber Bullying.
