Kylie Jenner has revealed being famous has come at a cost like being bullied on social media at every given opportunity by anyone and everyone.
During an appearance on an upcoming episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 18-year-old discussed her anti-bullying campaign ‘I Am More Than’, and how she has had to deal with ‘hate’ as the result of her fame.
“I started an Instagram campaign called I Am More Than,’ Kylie said. “I’ve been bullied my whole life, whether it was by my peers or comments on Instagram, or Twitter, whatever, and I never talked about my story really.
“I feel like I’ve kind of accepted it ’cause I realize that that just comes with the territory, so I kinda was online and just finding other girls and boys my age who have been bullied, and have kind of overcome it and just done something amazing with it, who inspire me.
“So I kind of wanted them to just use my platform and post their stories on Instagram to hopefully inspire my followers too, because they inspire me so much.”
Kylie’s campaign has spotlighted the likes of plus-sized model Erica Schenk and anti-bullying activist Lizzie Velásquez, who has been diagnosed with a rare congenital disease that prevents her from accumulating body fat. It most recently featured French artist Audrey.
