Monte Durham Against Bullying

Hats off to Monte Durham for his advocacy on Bullying Prevention for TLC’s ‘Give a Little’ Campaign! He discussed his personal experiences with bullying and gave suggestions on what we can do to prevent it. As we know, Monte is dubbed the life of the party as a lively co-host of “Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta,” alongside Lori Burns Allen. However, this interview exposes a  more vulnerable side to counteract the familiarity of the TV personality.  When asked why he chose  bullying as a  topic to raise awareness, he responded, “Bullying is a sore spot for me because I’ve been a victim. From my looks to my mannerisms, I know what it feels like to be judged unfairly. But now I have this platform and I’m able to use my popularity to speak up for those who can’t speak up for themselves. I’m able to go out and say ‘This is wrong and it’s unacceptable.’ “

  Thank you Monte for your voice!

One thought on “Monte Durham Against Bullying

  1. Good on you Monte for speaking up against bullying. I was bullied by two boys in my class when I was little. It lasted a few months until one day I came home crying. My mom asked me what happened and I told her. Luckily my mom knew the boys’ moms because we all went to the same church. She marched me over with her to the houses of the boys where she told their parents what they were doing. Luckily, the bullying stopped immediately after that. However, with cyber bulling, I think it might be harder for parents to know what is really going on.
