Maybe that’s why Justin Bieber was so outspoken during his efforts to reduce the rating from R to PG-13 for documentary ‘Bully’.
He admitted it himself during a chat with Showbiz Tonight, “I was bullied. I feel like most people in their lifetime have been bullied at some point,” he said. “I think it’s about time that people start making a change. A lot of times principals just let it go, teachers let it go, other students just let it go. But I think this movie is powerful and can help change a lot of lives.”
Not only was Beiber part of the successful campaign to get MPAA to lower the rating for ‘Bully,’ his song, ‘Born to Be Somebody’ has also been used in trailers for the documentary. He previously said, “I think that ‘Bully’ can serve a purpose and there is more to it than the curse words. Thirteen-year-olds can handle a few curse words. It’s really powerful. It should be rated PG-13.”
Now that the rating for the documentary is PG-13, kids under the age of 18 would be able to watch the movie without a parent, potentially exposing the film to a much larger audience of young people. ‘Bully’ comes out on April 13th, so don’t miss this powerful documentary.
