John decides to post a selfie on his Instagram page because he is in a good mood.
Later that night, John checked his phone because he had multiple notifications from Instagram. When he looked at his post, he had lots of comments that said he was ugly and gay.
Why are they saying this?
For the next few nights, John pondered about why people hated him and called him those mean names. He didn't know if he should tell his parents or teacher about it or if he should keep it to himself.
The next morning, John decided to email his teacher. He told him what happened and that he didn't know what to do about it.
Later that night, John's teacher sent him an email that told him that when he comes to school he will address the problem to the principal, and that he will talk to the students that were bullying him.
Cyber-bullying is a big issue that happens on a daily basis. Lots of people don't know how to deal with it. If someone is ever being cyber-bullied, they should always tell a teacher at school or a parent about the issue.
