“Social media is great, but it can also perpetuate a lot of hate,” the 19-year-old singer who appeared on several episodes of Glee, tells Radar.
“In fact, it is crazy but I still get bullied,” she says. “People are just plain out mean and jealousy causes people to do and say things they don’t mean. , so just keep doing your thing.”
