American singer Madison Beer, who was recently linked to Brooklyn Beckham, has stirred frenzy with her latest revelations. And, surprisingly enough it has got nothing to do with her rumoured romance.
Speaking to the Z100 Morning Show host, 18-year-old Madison made some shocking confessions about being the target of vile online trolls. While the budding talent understands that scrutiny is a part and parcel of being in the limelight, she, however, disapproves of the role played by social media.
"I wake up and have been told to kill myself like 30 times already; it's crazy!" the Youtube star tells radio host Elvis Duran about facing Cyberbullying. "It's definitely what comes with it, and a lot of people say, 'Yeah, but this is what you signed up for.'"
"I think that's such a shame to say. It shouldn't come along with me making music and following my dreams. It's upsetting those two go hand-in-hand now because of social media," Madison adds.
In the past, the aspiring artist had voiced her feelings about dealing with alleged verbal abuse in her former relationship.
And looks like, Madison remains firm on her stand against all sorts of bullying still now. In fact, she urges victims to not "brush things under the rug".
"I think everyone is allowed to defend him or herself, and remember the bullying and hatred comes from them. I always say when someone says something negative about me, it's really saying something negative about them. If you want to stand up for yourself, then go ahead!" she explained.
Most recently, the singer-cum-actress was in news due to her alleged relationship with the Beckham scion, Brooklyn. However, Madison soon cleared the air, suggesting that she and the 18-year-old photographer are just "friends".
"People are like, 'Oh no, you guys are definitely dating.' But he's moving to New York in two weeks — it's not really realistic... We're just having fun right now," she added.
