Lady Gaga recently took social media to share her stance against the anti-bullying speech Melania Trump gave in Philadelphia last week. “@MELANIATRUMP to say u will stand for “anti-bullying” is hypocrisy,” she wrote, “Your husband is 1 of the most notorious bullies we have ever witnessed.”
During her speech broadcasted by the CNN, Trump brought in an example of her relationship with her son. Then she specifically stressed on the harm cyber bullying can have on children. She promised to make the issue one of her main issues should she become the First Lady.
“Technology has changed our universe… Children and teenagers can be fragile. They hurt when they are made fun of or made to feel less in looks or intelligence,” she began.
“This makes their life hard and enforce them to hide in retreat. It is never okay when a 12-year-old girl or a boy is mocked, bullied or attacked … in the playground. It is absolutely unacceptable when it’s done by someone with no name hiding on the internet.” Then, she called out to “find a better ways” to talk to each other, to “disagree” with and to “respect” each other.
“We must find better ways to honour and support the basic goodness of our children especially in social media. It will be one of the main focuses of my work if I’m privileged enough to become your First Lady,” she concluded. Ironically, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, her husband, has regularly used his Twitter account to launch personal attacks against people and his rivals.
Lady Gaga, who is a Hillary Clinton supporter, has founded an anti-bullying non-profit institution called the ‘Born This Way Foundation’ with her mother.
