Selena Gomez opens up about her past struggle with bullies in a recent interview with the New York Post.
The 18-year-old singer and actress revealed she was taunted by her middle school classmates because of her job.
“I was definitely picked on in school. I was definitely made fun of for being in the [entertainment] industry,” Selena shared, adding that homeschooling helped but she’s still being bullied today.
“I get criticized by adults who say awful things about me on the Internet, things that affect me that I try not to read,” she said.
To address the widespread bullying problem, Wizards of Waverly Place‘s new season, which kicks off November 12, will feature an episode where Max (Jake T. Austin) finds himself being pushed around at school.
