Rebecca Black says she was being bullied so badly by other kids that she had to leave school.
Think of how badly the song Friday and its accompanying video were mocked on the Internet and late-night TV. Now imagine actually being Rebecca Black walking down the hall of her junior high and having that mockery happen in person, at the hands of dozens of mean teenagers.
It’s a nightmare the 14-year-old could no longer bear.
Rebecca Black says that the bullying got so bad that she could no longer focus on school, so her mother pulled her out and she is now being home-schooled.
“When I walk by they’ll start singing Friday in a really nasally voice,” Black told ABC News. “Or, you know, they’ll be like, ‘Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?'”
Wait, that’s it? That’s the bullying? If little comments like that affected her so badly, let’s hope the kid never Googles herself.
“Everyone has haters, I could donate all of my organs to children in need and I would still have haters,” Black told Access Hollywood.
“It’s just something I think that comes with all the attention, so I just have to deal with it.”
Rebecca Black’s mother says she is now home-schooling the singer, who recently made an appearance in Katy Perry’s video for Last Friday Night (TGIF), and that the move will help her focus on her singing career.
