I just find those words, those terms… we’ve got to do something to make those words unacceptable cause those words are hurting kids.”
He added: “Someone else I talked to recently said that the words people use and the things people say about other kids online, it enters into their internal dialogue. When you’re a kid, it can change the way you see yourself and the way you think about yourself – the worth that you give to yourself. I think we really need to focus on what language we’re using and how we’re treating these kids.”
