Kendall and Kylie Jenner Speak Out Against Cyberbullying
Kendall and Kylie Jenner encourage fans to "Delete Digital Drama." Kendall and Kylie Jenner and known for making some fierce fashion statements.
This time, however, the stylish sisters are letting the clothes speak for themselves.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars have joined forces with fellow celebrities such as Ashley Benson, AnnaSophia Robb, Kat Graham and Willow Smith to encourage fans to help put a stop to cyberbullying.
The initiative, fronted by Seventeen magazine, is called "Delete Digital Drama."
Readers are encouraged to pick up one of the campaign's colorful t-shirts, which reads "[delete]" and post a pic of themselves wearing it on Instagram with the hashtag #17delete.
In support of the campaign, Kendall and Kylie shared their own experiences with cyberbullying.
Kylie tells the mag that while it's tough, she tries not to read negative comments. "Let's say someone calls me fat-as a teen, people need to realize that if you call someone fat, you can have a million positive messages, but you'll only remember the negative one," she confesses. "Even if people put on a tough face, it still gets to you. I try not to read the negative things, and don't listen to them."
Sister Kendall takes a similar approach saying she takes immediate action to delete the drama in her digital space. "If I start reading something and it sounds mean, I just stop immediately. Just delete it or block the person. Try not to even look at it."
The "Delete Digital Drama" t-shirts are sold exclusively at JCPenney and all of the proceeds from the $10 purchase benefit STOMP Out Bullying, a national anti-bullying organization.
