- Emily Osment: 'People Feel Very Entitled To Say Something Negative'
Emily Osment wears her [delete] tee proudly as she arrives at the Delete Digital Drama Rally held at The Americana on Thursday afternoon (July 14) in Glendale, Calif.
The 19-year-old actress/musician was joined by several other ABC Family stars including Daren Kagasoff. Emily also performed her new song “Drift,” which is featured in Cyberbully.
When asked about celebrities getting bullied on the internet, Emily told press, “People do feel very entitled to say something negative as if that is their job, or if they have any reason, or as if they know that much. They usually don’t. So, find it kind of funny, honestly. And, that’s how I deal with a lot of things, and that’s how I would deal with a bullying situation, is that I would try and find humor in it.”
“But, everyone has their own way of dealing with things and I’ll be talking about that at our Delete Digital Drama rally on Thursday at the American, is you have to have three ways to deal with a bully,” Emily continued, “And it’s different for everyone. Whether it be my ways, is just finding good humor in it, or whether it be option ‘B’ which is to say something, or option ‘C’ is just walk away, or get some help. You just have to have a way in your head of getting out of this situation before you’re even in it.”
Cyberbully premieres SUNDAY, July 17 @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC Family.
The Pretty Little Liars co-stars came out to show their support for the campaign, which brings awareness to online bullying and encourage Millennials to take action!
Shay, who had to leave early, tweeted, “I’m so sorry for not being able to stay longer at the #deletedigitaldrama rally but I had 2 go back to work! Huge thanks 2 every1 who came!”
