Emily Osment Talks Online Bullying for New Film ‘Cyberbully’
Emily plays Taylor Hillridge, a high school student who’s pushed to the edge when she becomes a victim of online bullying while visiting a popular social media site. Osment, who fell in love with the script after reading it, has an important message for those who are bullied:
“You are not alone,” says the young starlet, “You can find help—talk to a friend, family, a teacher or an adult.”
With a strong support system like that, the ‘Lovesick’ songstress won’t have any problems dealing with bullies in college come fall!
But if you’re worried about missing out on new Emily Osment music—don’t! She assures Celebuzz that despite her commitment to pursue further education, she won’t be packing up her microphone—or leaving our TV sets—just yet.
“Hopefully, I’ll be able to do all three,” says Osment.
For now, you can catch this triple threat on Cyberbully, premiering July 17 at 8 PM ET/PT on ABC Family. Check out the trailer below!
