Anti-Bullying Video: The Power Of Cruel Words (WATCH)

Posted: Updated:

Intertwining music and powerful images, this short film by Everyone reminds us of the humanity and individuality of teen 'losers' who are bullied and picked on -- and how damaging even a single cruel word can be. Lady Gaga, who just launched her own anti-bullying foundation, has spoken out on the effect that bullying has had on her, and is now working to make bullying -- which she describes as a "hate crime" -- illegal.

The video is a call to action for teens: think twice before you call someone a 'slut,' 'faggot,' or 'fatass,' and just as importantly, don't stand by and watch while someone is labeled with hurtful words. You have no idea what impact your words might have on someone. Watch another powerful video from Holland about LGBT bullying:
