The power of a message can make anyone pay attention, Ellen DeGeneres on her show pleaded to STOP THE BULLYING. Ellen said she is ‘devastated’ over the death of Rutgers student Tyler Clementi, who killed himself after he was outed as gay over the internet.
DeGeneres made an emotional plea to stop teenage bullying following a series of teens committing suicide after having been teased or bullied. Ellen told her audience;
‘Something must be done…this needs to be a wake-up call to everyone: teenage bullying and teasing is an epidemic in this country, and the death rate is climbing. One life lost in this senseless way is tragic. Four lives lost is a crisis. And these are just the stories we hear about. How many other teens have we lost? How many others are suffering in silence? Being a teenager and figuring out who you are is hard enough without someone attacking you.’

Ellen pleaded to those who are still getting bullied that it will get better and she went on to say;
‘These kids needed us. We have an obligation to change this. There are messages everywhere that validate this kind of bullying and taunting and we have to make it stop. We can’t let intolerance and ignorance take another kid’s life.’
