On the heels of yesterdays sad news of another teen suicide due to bullying, [lastfm link_type=""]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] is stepping in.
She has started #MakeALawForJamey trending on twitter. She is setting up a meeting to make bullying a hate crime.
“”Jamey Rodemeyer, 14 yrs old, took his life because of bullying. Bullying must become be illegal. It is a hate crime,” she tweeted.
Gaga also spoke of how his death had personally impacted her. “The past days I’ve spent reflecting, crying, and yelling. I have so much anger. It is hard to feel love when cruelty takes someones life,” she wrote. Jamey killed himself on Sunday only a few months after he had posted his own “It Gets Better” video in an effort to support other teens who, like him, were being bullied at school.
