Shanna Moakler is sticking up for her little girl!
According to Ms. Moakler, her precious girl Alabama Barker was viciously taunted by internet personality RiceGum. The 19-year-old had posted a video to YouTube criticizing Barker for her grammar, Instagram photos, and vegan diet.
Once the vid was shared, 3,000 plus commenters posted awful remarks about Alabama — some internet trolls even threatened her life. Sadly, the preteen read all the heinous messages calling her a "whore" and "loser".
Luckily for Alabama, she had the support of her family to get her through the trying time:
"My daughter read a lot of this vicious bullying and started crying. We had to explain to her that she was safe and these threats were from people who didn't know her. It has been so emotionally draining and damaging that I now understand why people commit suicide over cyberbullying."
Following the scarring incident, the model reached out to RiceGum to tell him how "wrong" the bullying was. Unfortunately, that just made the situation worse and compelled some fans to issue threats of violence against Shanna and Travis.
Now that the blonde has undergone this eyeopening experience, she wants to turn it into a positive teaching moment:
"There's been nonstop harassment. People think they can say anything because they are faceless, but their comments cause a lot of pain. I want to make a documentary about this. I want to travel the country and talk to school principals to help stop this in the future."
Shortly after S.M.'s candid interview, fans flooded Twitter with messages of support:
Blink and you'll miss them!
If you consider yourself a fan of early '00s pop punk… then chances are you're already aware that legendary rockers blink-182 are back with new music!
Travis Barker, Mark Hoppus, and Matt Skiba dropped their seventh studio album California on Friday, and we're honored to exclusively give you a sneak peek of their newest vid Brohemian Rhapsody… only there's a slight catch.
The guys singing in the clip aren't even part of blink-182… they're actually Mumford & Sons!
As it turns out, the two bands are very close after meeting at a music festival in Germany a few years back, so when the opportunity came to collab earlier this year, they decided to pull a prank on their fans!
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, after all.
Plus, if you like what you hear, you can get even more of their music RIGHT OVER HERE!!!
Ch-ch-check out the blink-182/Mumford & Sons mashup (above)!!!
Don't blink, or you'll miss their new music!
Blink-182 is one of the most iconic pop punk bands of the early '00s, but it looks like they're not ready to simply be another fondly remembered act.
But that's not the only good news we've got for you — we're also hearing that Blink will be going on tour with All Time Low, All American Rejects, A Day To Remember, and DJ Spider this Summer!
Plus, if you like what you hear, you can grab their seventh studio album California when it drops July 1!

Kim Kardashian West may be posting curvaceous naked selfies of herself, but that doesn't mean she's in love with her body these days!
In fact, Khloé Kardashian revealed she had to encourage her sister not to weigh herself so soon after giving birth — because apparently, her boobs alone weigh "like 50 pounds each"!
KoKo explained that she didn't really have a goal to lose weight, but saw more results when she used the gym as a "stress reliever" during her divorce. She said:
Hell hath no fury, right?
While the rest of the world was freaking out at Kim Kardashian West over her nude selfie, Shanna Moakler threw shade at the KUWTK starlet for a bigger crime — for having tried to sleep with her ex Travis Barker when they were still married. Oof!
The blonde beauty posted:
The drummer filed docs obtained by TMZ that accuse Moakler of neglecting their kids Landon, 12, and Alabama, 10, and misusing the $18K Barker pays in child support each month.
The 40-year-old voices concern that the former model has drugs and guns in the house, sends the kids to school without lunches, and lets their son "roam around" without knowing his whereabouts.
The musician is hoping to have his child support reduced to as low as $2,900 per month as he thinks the money isn't being spent properly — and he cites not making nearly as much as he did when the current deal was reached.
A source close to his baby momma says Shanna is devastated by the filing and doesn't understand why Travis is trying to "financially destroy" her.
Miz Moakler also just posted this cryptic quote to Instagram:
The Modern Family star surprised the crowd by taking a Taxi through the floorboards and bringing some extra hot salsa dancing to the stage!
