    That's so sad, Cher shouldn't have been bullied, just because she's a pop star, she seems like a really nice person! And I think cyber bullying is very wrong, who would be so cold-hearted?

    i definatley agree with sambarose2. I also read in firstnews today that people bulied her because of her gipsy background, which is awful. I know a gipsy, and she is bullied quite a lot too, but I stand up for her because I belelive people shouldnt be bullied because of where they come from.

    that is so not fair because she has a gipsy background? i have a gypsy background too! and that does not make people better than you they are horrid people

    That's so sad,she's even famous and I bet that she's the only pop star that's been bullied,but I'm glad that she stood up for herself.I feel so sad for her but I say to the bullies stop otherwise all the people you bullied will bully you so watch out.Or I would say just stop otherwise people would now your a bully so the wont want to be your friend, so that's what I would say!Plus it doesn't matter if you have a gypsy background or you have a friend that's a gypsy,were all the same! That's what I think and I think everybody should think that!!!

  • Eve A (Age 12) wrote on Friday, 10 February 2012 @ 17:05

    So people are just so sad, Cher is a lovely person, why bully her?

  • Natasha M (Age 14) wrote on Friday, 10 February 2012 @ 17:27

    That's bad.

  • Liam S (Age 12) wrote on Friday, 10 February 2012 @ 17:40

    Quite right, Cher, it needs to stop. You ARE a great singer which you've shown. The bullies are jealous of your great talent.

    Good Story

  • Homirah S (Age 14) wrote on Friday, 10 February 2012 @ 18:49

    Cher is really nice she dont deserve to be bullied

  • Bella T (Age 12) wrote on Friday, 10 February 2012 @ 19:00

    That's terrible! Nobody should ever be bullied just because they come from a different background to most people. We're all humans, aren't we? Everyone's the same on the inside! Bullies and cyber bullies are just horrible, sick people.

  • Daniela S (Age 12) wrote on Friday, 10 February 2012 @ 19:05

    Don't worry Cher i think you are exelant!!!

  • Katie D (Age 16) wrote on Friday, 10 February 2012 @ 19:48

    I feel differently about this story to how I normally do about bully victims who are celebrities. Pretty much EVERY celebrity says they were bullied as a child. With many it probably isn't true and is a bid for the limelight, but I can tell it would happen to Cher because she's different, and I'm sure if we went to school with her before she was famous we would all think she was weird. We might not bully her but we might think she's strange. I'm glad that, unlike many other celebs, she is telling the truth and is actually doing something about it. :)

  • Joshua M (Age 16) wrote on Friday, 10 February 2012 @ 20:10

    Good on you Cher, I used to be bullied at school, so I know what that is like even if I didn't have to deal with the cyber aspect. I think it is wonderful what you are doing and I want to say good luck.

  • Hannah N (Age 11) wrote on Saturday, 11 February 2012 @ 13:20

    i think it is great that cher is sticking up for people that went through the same thing as she did

  • Maame A (Age 13) wrote on Saturday, 11 February 2012 @ 14:54

    it's really unfair and it should be made illegal

  • Aqsa . (Age 13) wrote on Saturday, 11 February 2012 @ 15:55

    What kind of world has this become? People treat others as if they are different. Why can't they accept that we're all the same? Since 1999 suicide rates have gone up by 60%. I wish the world can be a happy place, where everyone is the same as others. xx

  • Aletia S (Age 14) wrote on Wednesday, 15 February 2012 @ 18:31

    Cher Lloyd is my friends cousin and I have met Cher multiple times. She is a lovely person and i dont blame her for standing up to all these bullies. She shouldnt be getting threathened; no one should. She didn't become famous to be bullied, she became famous to show us her talent. Keep going Cher we are all behind you and so are your family. xx

  • Megan K (Age 13) wrote on Wednesday, 15 February 2012 @ 19:27

    umm :'( I've always liked cher lloyd and people only find reasons to bully her because there jeealous of how great her life has and had become x

  • Sasha J (Age 13) wrote on Friday, 17 February 2012 @ 08:24

    Cyber bullying is a horrible thing to do and is actually against the law! It doesn't matter where you come from we should all be treated equally!

  • Nicole L (Age 14) wrote on Friday, 17 February 2012 @ 12:34

    poor cher but she is a great singer and stands up to them so go team cher :)

  • Daniela S (Age 12) wrote on Friday, 17 February 2012 @ 14:29

    I LOVE YOU CHER!! we are your family!! XXX

  • Liam S (Age 12) wrote on Friday, 17 February 2012 @ 16:45

    schools need to teach more about standing up to the bully. The school could potentialy have them expelled. If the case is to serious they may even be locked up in a youth jail.

  • Hannah L (Age 13) wrote on Friday, 17 February 2012 @ 19:36

    Thats really sad, why would someone want to insult her like that???Its terrible when people are insulted for being different,Ive been there!!!And dont you think its a stupid idea to insult a CELEB?!?Wouldnt that make you, like,the most unpopular person in school?? Those cyber bullies should be ashamed, and not just the ones insulting Cher, but ALL of them!!!!!!!!!

  • Amirah A (Age 15) wrote on Saturday, 18 February 2012 @ 17:30

    No-one deserves to be bullied, regardless of their race, culture or character. I'm glad that Cher is doing something about her problems and helping others too, however, my opinion of her still hasn't changed. Just recently, she said on the radio that her ex mentor, Cheryl Cole, isn't a great singer and she would only duet with her if Cheryl could sing live, hence, implying that Cheryl relies heavily on autotune, which may be true, but why mention it in such a mean manner? I understand that no-one asks or deserves to be bullied but if Cher wants people to take her seriously she shouldn't kick them down and be rude.

  • Eva S (Age 13) wrote on Monday, 20 February 2012 @ 18:15

    even though I dont really like Cher Lloyd, i feel soory for her and all the people that have been bullied, mentally, physically or online.

  • Lucy W (Age 12) wrote on Tuesday, 21 February 2012 @ 16:28

    I love Cher sooo much and I think it is very mean and unfair that people bully. No one deserves being bullied and we should try our hardst to stop it!

  • William M (Age 11) wrote on Tuesday, 21 February 2012 @ 18:20

    one girl in my school got bullied and the next week she left school

  • Anna P (Age 13) wrote on Wednesday, 22 February 2012 @ 19:14

    thats so sad:( cher looks like an amazing girl- and no one deserves to be bullied- i have been once and its not nice. poor Cher must have felt so threatened not knowing where or who her bullies were

  • Evie B (Age 13) wrote on Thursday, 23 February 2012 @ 17:01

    No one should be bullied like that. She was on Panorama about that too. I feel so sorry for her.

  • Abby M (Age 14) wrote on Tuesday, 6 March 2012 @ 10:54

    we're all the same, regardless of what we look like, sound like, wear etc. and even if Cher had a gypsy background, so what? gypsies are really awesome! so back off, whoever was bullying Cher, cuz she's a great singer and ur just jealous that u cant sing as well as she can! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • Nikki C (Age 11) wrote on Saturday, 6 October 2012 @ 07:49

    They should not be bullying her she's a better singer than they'll ever be

  • Eleanor G (Age 12) wrote on Monday, 21 January 2013 @ 18:05

    Personally I think she has to go through a lot and still is on twitter. I read about it in my anual about her. I only knew she existed in 2012! LOL

  • Eden W (Age 12) wrote on Monday, 28 January 2013 @ 17:05

    Well i heard on the new-paper that she bullied a girl herself! Bullying is wrong and nobody should be a bully or be ashamed or been bullied- as long as you tell someone and dont let it bother you then try your est not to worry! :)

  • Shanthavi W (Age 12) wrote on Tuesday, 5 February 2013 @ 19:24

    I thought famous people were more unlikely to get bullied.

  • Saleka N (Age 13) wrote on Sunday, 10 February 2013 @ 19:06

    Any form of bullying is really,really awful no matter who it is. No-one has any right to bully others even if they are high in status cos everyone has feelings and only cos there pain is not visible that does not mean they dont feel anything. Plus if anyone who is being bullied and is reading this always remember : Be strong,stand to the bullies and dont let there words get to you. Remenber 'connect with respect'.

  • Liam S (Age 12) wrote on Tuesday, 19 February 2013 @ 15:41

    Cher shouldn't be bullied - Joe Bloggs shouldn't be bullied - no one should be bullied. BeatBullying. FULL STOP.

  • Anandita K (Age 14) wrote on Saturday, 23 February 2013 @ 11:03

    Online bullying needs to stop, it's simply unacceptable. Just because you are behind a screen does not mean that you can behave worse than you would in real life.

  • Luke C (Age 12) wrote on Tuesday, 5 March 2013 @ 10:24

    aww poor cher she is my favorite singer i cant believe someone would do something like that its horrible the bullies should be ashamed considering she is famous

  • Luke C (Age 12) wrote on Tuesday, 5 March 2013 @ 10:28

    I think bullying should be made a criminal offense

  • Denver D (Age 9) wrote on Thursday, 21 March 2013 @ 20:30

    Poor Cher who would bully Cher like that she can report it can she?

  • Kirsty R (Age 11) wrote on Monday, 25 March 2013 @ 17:50
