Since becoming a star, Lady Gaga has always fought for acceptance and inclusivity.

She knows that people are the best versions of themselves when they don’t change for other people.

Recently, Lady Gaga found out that her friend’s daughter was being bullied at school, and she couldn’t just sit by and let it happen.

Instead, she took to her Instagram account to share a video with her fans, calling out the young bullies. She also encouraged the other students at the California elementary school to stand up to bullies.

Although she may not know these students personally, Lady Gaga hopes she can use her platform to encourage kids to be kind.

Alongside her video, Lady Gaga wrote, “A message from me to El Marino Elementary to be kind to my friend @joomees daughter Venice. No Child should have to sit alone at lunch or constantly be outcast. Let’s empower each other to be kinder and braver.”

Everyone has felt bullied or picked on at some point in life, but it’s particularly challenging when you’re just a kid.

As adults, we understand that bullies often come from a place of insecurity, but it’s a lot harder for kids to comprehend that.

In the video that Lady Gaga shared, she said:

Hi everybody at El Marino Elementary. This is Lady Gaga.

I’m friends with Venice, and I work with Venice’s mommy, Julie.

I’m really, really sad to hear that Venice is being bullied at school.

I work a lot in the space of anti-bullying and I have learned that this can really change the growth and happiness of children all over the world.

So, I encourage you all to be kind to one another and to search within your community for bravery.

Sometimes, it’s hard to stand up to the popular kids.

Be kinder. Be braver. Go and sit with Venice and have lunch. Be a rebel.

Another woman shared her own story, writing:

I have so much respect for you Lady Gaga. I love that you did this video.

I was bullied and beat up in grade school. I unfortunately didn’t have a mother that cared and none of my teachers did a thing about it.
