If you’ve ever had to remove a negative comment from one of your social media streams, then you know how pungent the effects of cyberbullying can be. Willow Smith has decided to take action against these kind of online attacks by teaming up with Seventeen Magazine’s “Delete Digital Drama” campaign.

The 12-year-old-singer will be one of the celeb activists behind the initiative which seeks to empower young women to disengage from cyberbullying by deleting harsh and mean comments they see on their Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages. This announcement comes just days after her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, released a lengthy statement about online bullying towards young celebs via her Facebook page.

You can check the rest out over on Essence. Perhaps this is the reason why Jada started talking about online bullying – kind of pre-promoting Willow’s latest endeavor.

Have you or anyone you know ever been cyber bullied?

    I think what people/kids don’t realize is the different between cyber-bullying and real life is that on the internet you have the CLEAR OPTION TO DISENGAGE. This is not a real life person following you down the street talking ish and throwing rocks at your head. These people are not “real”. You do not have to delete the comments, acknowledge the crazy and IGNORE THEM! And when someone IS walking down the street talking ish and throwing rocks at your head, turn around and crack them in the mouth.

    Will someone look at this child’s tblr and tell me why she has pics of people smoking, knives, a person with what looks like an acid stamp on their tongue, nudity ( art, I guess), and the list goes on. Is this real? I don’t have fb, Twitter, or instagram, so can someone let me know how this works?

    Yes, I see it all the time. I commend the Smith kids for getting involved in things like this and not just being typical spoiled rich kids. I’m sure a topic like this is a no-brainer, especially for Willow, because I’ve seen grown folks go in on that child a lot over the last few years. It’s definitely become quite a problem when even adults like Keri Hilson are being cyber bullied. Every state needs to put some laws on the books to deal with this. Because in the suicide cases we see (too late) how out of hand the bullying can get.

    Some of these folks KILL me with their antics. I wrote a comment one time on a music video saying that I only liked the first 1:30 seconds of a particular song and it was like WWIII up in that bish! People dead told me to “kill myself,” called me a b— and even the F word that rhymes with maggot. I couldn’t help but laugh cause they were absolutely ridiculous and going in on me! Granted, it was for a My Chemical Romance song, but they should be happy I liked ANY part of ANY song of that rock/metal ish! Lol
