Lady Gaga used Instagram on Friday to promote peace and friendship by supporting her friend’s daughter, Venice, a victim of bullying in an elementary school.
With her short clip, Gaga shared a message to Venice’s classmates but everyone can learn something from it:
“Hi everybody at El Marino Elementary. This is Lady Gaga. I’m friends with Venice, and I work with Venice’s mommy, Julie,” she started the message. “I’m really, really sad to hear that Venice is being bullied at school.”
“I work a lot in the space of anti-bullying and I have learned that this can really change the growth and happiness of children all over the world,” Gaga continued. “So, I encourage you all to be kind to one another and to search within your community for bravery.”
“Sometimes, it’s hard to stand up to the popular kids. Be kinder. Be braver. Go and sit with Venice and have lunch. Be a rebel,” she finished.
