Kesha Opens Up About How Online Bullying Fueled Her Eating Disorder In New Essay

| Filed under: InspirationVogueKeshaMental HealthEating DisordersBullyingDepression

Kesha

In a new essay for Teen Vogue, Kesha pens an inspiring message about overcoming her eating disorder and finding happiness despite being bullied online.

The 30-year-old singer allowed herself to be vulnerable in the emotional piece opening up about being an "outcast" ever since she was young — but it was the cruel opinions of others, combined with anxiety and depression, that led to the TiK ToK artist's eating disorder.

Kesha wrote:

"When I think about the kind of bullying I dealt with as a child and teen, it seems almost quaint compared with what goes on today. The amount of body-shaming and baseless slut-shaming online makes me sick. I know from personal experience how comments can mess up somebody's self-confidence and sense of self-worth. I have felt so unlovable after reading cruel words written by strangers who don't know a thing about me."

Dani Mathers loses motion to dismiss charges.

We'll be seeing her in court!

Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers has lost her bid to have charges against her dismissed in her infamous body-shaming case, The Wrap reports.

As you'll recall, the model was widely criticized for posting a photo of a nude 71-year-old woman in the locker room of an LA Fitness gym and mocking her body with the caption, "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

The Snapchat post quickly went viral, with Dani's actions excoriated by the public. She was charged with invasion of privacy quickly thereafter.

On Monday, a judge denied the motion to dismiss those charges. Dani had previously argued that the charges were too ambiguous. How about being a horrible human being? Too ambiguous?

Mathers faces a possible six months in prison and a $1K fine if found guilty.

The next court date in the case is set for May 24.

Mother Of 8-Year-Old Boy Who Committed Suicide Says School Tried To Cover Up An Assault That Took Place Days Before

| Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadViolenceBullyingViral: News

The family of an 8-year-old boy who committed suicide earlier this year believes the school lied about the boy being assaulted in school days before he took his own life.

The mother of the Carson Elementary School student hired attorney Jennifer Branch to find out what happened before her son tragically killed himself on January 26.

The attorney told Fox19 the family is now aware of school security footage from Jan. 24 that shows another student camping out in the school bathroom and bullying fellow students.

In the video, Branch said the 8-year-old boy is shown walking into the bathroom and trying to shake hands with the bully, but the attacker forced the victim to the ground — and the boy allegedly "ends up on the floor, unconscious for seven and a half minutes."

The video then reportedly shows other students mocking the boy and kicking him before the assistant principal and nurse come to revive the victim.

But when school officials called the boy's mother, they allegedly gave her a much different story — and simply told her "that he fainted."

The boy ended up vomiting later that night, according to Branch, and was suspected to have the stomach flu after his mother took him to the hospital. So, he missed school the next day and returned to Carson on January 26 — the day he took his own life. Branch explained:

What. The. Actual. Fuck???

Two elementary school teachers in Opelousas, Louisiana have been arrested for allegedly bullying a young girl and encouraging their students to fight one another.

According to KATC, Ann Marie Shelvin (above, left) has been accused of threatening to fail students who did not fight one of their classmates, and telling the bullied student to "go and kill yourself."

After the 44-year-old teacher was removed from Washington Elementary School, Tracy Gallow (above, right) — the replacement teacher — continued to intimidate the student for ousting Shelvin.

The mother of the 11-year-old victim first told deputies Shelvin was bullying her child back in February, and was told to file a complaint with the St. Landry School Board. She returned to officials earlier this month to say the bullying had continued.

Sheriff Bobby Guidroz says police found students were being forced by Shelvin to start an altercation with the victim. One student claimed if she did not fight with the 11-year-old, Shelvin would refuse to help her with her classwork — just like she refused to help the victim.
