For Anti-Bullying Week 2020, SCREENSHOT is supporting the anti-bullying charity Ditch The Label in its mission to raise awareness of the consequences of bullying and online abuse through our campaign Not Just a Comment. SCREENSHOT partnered with six inspiring advocates standing up against online abuse by asking them to share with you the comments they receive and together raise awareness of the impact these comments can have.
It is time we tackle online abuse, because whether it was just for lols or actual hate, a comment is not just a comment. We invite you to share on social media a picture or a video and tell us in the caption the meanest comment you’ve received. Use the hashtag #NotJustAComment and we will feature your post on this page.
Read the facts, hear the comments, share with anyone who you think might be suffering from bullying and donate if you can to help support the incredible work Ditch The Label is doing. #NotJustAComment
Don’t get us wrong, we love the internet, especially social media. Just like you, we can spend hours scrolling through funny videos and inspirational posts. However, with the rise of social media platforms comes an increase in online bullying, and something needs to be done to stop it.
That’s why, for Anti-Bullying Week 2020, SCREENSHOT is supporting the anti-bullying charity Ditch The Label in its mission to tackle online abuse.
Our Not Just a Comment campaign features 6 inspiring change makers who know first hand what it’s like to receive hate online. They shared with us the worst comments they’ve ever received as they come together to highlight the impact that words can have on each and every one of us.
