Madelaine Petsch Talks About Shutting Down Cyberbullying

Madelaine Petsch is opening up about online bullying.

The 22-year-old Riverdale star offers solutions to shutting down haters and mean people on social media.

“I absolutely think there’s a solution. I think social media plays a huge part in it and I think a lot of it happens on social media,” Madelaine said. “I genuinely think that if there was a way to control or ban people who did any of those things (slut shaming, bullying, any of that stuff) or like lock their social media accounts, that would be a great way to teach them that it’s not okay.”

“The problem is that the people who are doing it are getting younger and younger,” she continued. “It’s so easy to hide behind a screen and that’s kind of what our whole generation does. They can hide behind a screen and say these awful things to people. They don’t realize the effect they have on others.”

Madelaine added, “Other than getting rid of social media, which is not gonna happen, I’m not sure how it can be stopped completely.”
