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.

That is such a bizarre comment
it is mind boggling.Is this some twisted view on her marriage to sweet Eddie Cibrion? She's bullied no-one & good for her for speaking out.SOME people though,should keep their baseless innuendos to themselves.

We need help. their mom is on a bypolar bullying rage. She is a beautiful person but her mom used to bully her. I cant get mad cause i know its not her fault. please help this family at all costs. i have had it to the point where i have suicidal thoughts cause there's no help, no way out. But there's gotta be, please someone.

Hey Sam,
Sorry, I misunderstood your comment & this is obviously your children's Mother.That must mean that this is what you & your child are dealing with full time.
Like you can't get away ever. My advice would be the same & you need someone else to witness this behaviour.I would get a friend or family member to stay with her so you can get out and get the process going.& keep son with you.This can be fixed.There is no shame in asking others to help you especially in a situation that is harming you &your son.

Dear Sam,
You need to get a restraining order on your mother.That means you need evidence of her malicious behaviour(tapes, video , phone or text messages)& present this to police & court.This is for the health of your mom & all of you.She needs to be placed under psychiatric observation. It sounds like she needs bi polar meds and Dr. supervision. You need to do this Right NOW for You & your child.She's not meaning to hurt you but I can hear the damage being done to you.I 'd also talk to a lawyer about the correct process to get this to decease A.S..A..P.
Good luck buddy.

Since you protest that nasty insults are not bullying you won't mind me saying that this sounds like the ramblings of a severely disturbed malcontent.
Good for LeAnn but SCARY that there are Blithering Simpletons just waiting to Yammer their rage out on Anybody.

Bullying of pop stars is an epidemic in the internet. Low class human garbage spew forth the most obscene comments. Just check out comments at sites like TMZ, Raderonline and others to see what I mean. You can also see it under you tube videos of pop stars.
