Keegan Allen can’t stand bullying — so much that he unfollowed almost everyone on Twitter.
The Pretty Little Liars actor ran into a fan who was the victim of cruel bullying by her so called friends. The girl ran into Keegan outside the Lucille Lortel Theater where she told him about her friends, whom he followed on Twitter, calling her ugly and fat.
“It troubled me so much that I just unfollowed everyone on Twitter,” Keegan told W magazine. “I don’t want to be a reason for somebody else feeling inadequate. I’m not going to contribute to bullying. I told her, ‘I’m going to do this for you.’”
Now, he only follows his friends and a few other news outlets.
“This is what the play [Small Engine Repair] revolves around, this inability to recognize how one thing can change and really impact everything just because of social media and the lack of empathy now where we no longer see the effects of this,” Keegan added.
