Shawn Mendes Recalls High School Bullying In Instagram Post
Shawn Mendes opened up about how he was bullied in high school. He posted an inspirational message for others on Instagram.
With a photo of him on stage, Mendes wrote, “I’m thinking about being in 9th grade right now. The day after I posted one of my first covers onto YouTube back in 2014, at school walking down the hall straight into a group of older guys yelling out ‘Ssing for me Shawn sing for me!’ in a way that made me feel absolutely horrible... made me feel like a joke, like what I was doing was just stupid and wrong.”
He continued, "It’s not [a] joke to me. To make someone feel bad about doing what they love... every single person deserves to do what makes them feel alive.”
In spite of being bullied, Mendes' family and friends refused to let him give up on his dream.
