Demi Lovato is the New Ambassador for Anti-Bullying Campaign

By on September 21, 2012

Demi Lovato is continuing her mission to help end bullying!

The X Factor judge officially announced that she is the new ambassador for Secret deodorant’s “Mean Stinks” anti-bullying campaign, which encourages girls to “gang up for good.”

Demi tweeted:

“So excited to be Secret’s new @meanstinks ambassador!!! #gangupforgood”

It is no surprise for Demi to be extremely excited about the opportunity because she was once bullied. She told PEOPLE magazine:

“I had a really tough time when I was in middle school. People would write ‘hate petitions’ [about me] and send them around to be signed. They’d have CD bashing parties of my demos. They’d come to my house, stand across the street, and yell things. It was a very emotional time for me and all I wanted to do was get away.”

She said that the bullying was a pretty big contributing factor in her ending up in rehab for an eating disorder and cutting.
