Lady Gaga Films PSA for the ‘We Stop Hate’ Campaign
Lady Gaga is doing anything and everything in her power to help end bullying once and for all. She has already met with President Obama about the issue, and now the songstress is teaming up with WeStopHate.org in order to spread the campaign’s message of love and acceptance.
In a PSA Gaga filmed for the website, which was founded by 17-year-old Emily-Anne Rigal, she urges viewers to become familiar with WeStopHate.org and their campaign to build to “teen esteem.” In the video, Gaga says, “I love your website and I love everything that you do. Building teen esteem is one of the most important things that young people should focus on right now.”
Gaga, who is wearing a mint green hat and matching blazer, continues to speak about bullying and how it must stop, especially in the wake of so many teen suicides — she specifically mentions Jamey Rodemeyer, a 14-year-old boy who recently took his own life after being victimized and taunted by bullies with hateful, anti-homosexual remarks.
“I encourage everyone all over the world to come visit your website and learn how we can combat bullying and the obstacles young people experience every day … Keep pushing the boundaries of acceptance and tolerance. I am here to fight with you,” Gaga tells viewers.
Below the PSA ad on We Stop Hate’s YouTube channel, founder Rigal wrote a message to Gaga for her dedication to end bullying: “I don’t have the words to express my gratitude. God bless you. Thank you for all you do — our world wouldn’t be the same without you.”
