>Demi Lovato Tweets Against Bullying

>Disney Channel star Demi Lovato read about Jaheem Herrera's suicide and was personally moved to speak out. Herrera was the second 11-year-old to take his own life this month due to bullying and harassment using anti-gay taunts. Both boys were very young and neither was known to be gay.

Lovato started tweeting about her own experience with being bullied:

"I can't explain what I went through when I left public school to start homeschooling.. One day I will. But right now..."It honestly amazes me how schools refuse to take action in verbal abuse.. they SAY they do, but this what ends up happening. So, so sad.."
