Bullying seems to be pervasive and even stars like Lindsay Lohan aren't immune to it.
The Liz and Dick star opened up about her own experience after Katie Couric's interview with Whitney Kropp, a high schooler from Michigan. The 16 year-old was nominated for her school's homecomoing court as a prank and then she discovered her local community and supporters beyond her town supported her.
Lohan Tweeted, “@KatieCouric I think what you did today on your show for #WhitneyKropp was lovely. It had me crying. I’d love to meet her. #stopbullying.”
She added, “I was actually bullied @ my public school when i would leave to film. Whenever I came back… girls & boys would call me names.”
“They would also mock me because of my home situation, when people found out that my father was in jail."
Lindsay continued to open up: “They would yell things, try to trip me & more…I moved to home-schooling instead. In 11th grade. I stuck it out for a while.”
“So I can relate to the girls that you spoke with on your show today. I appreciate you reaching out to them. xo.”
