LeAnn Rimes Performs at Anti-Bullying Concert, Gets Emotional on Stage

by at . Comments

LeAnn Rimes took a stance against bullying at the Friend Movement's Anti-Bullying Benefit Concert in L.A. Monday night, at times getting very emotional.

The country star was the featured performer at the concert, where she told the audience how she takes her fair share of bullying on social media.

She has two words for the haters, at the end of the day: "Screw them!"

LeAnn, who performed her hit "Can't Stop The Moonlight" and Elton John's "Rocket Man," is such an amazing talent. Rimes was introduced by Lizzie Velasquez.

Cruelly, some have dubbed Lizzie "The World's Ugliest Woman," but she overcame bullying - and an extremely rare medical disorder - to become a motivational speaker.

LeAnn later tweeted a picture of them together:

World's Ugliest Woman?

"Lizzie Velasquez is the most inspiring woman!!! So honored to have met her," she wrote of meeting Velasquez, who endured years and years of bullying.

Hopefully, we can all learn something from her example.
