Bethany Mota Opens Up About Being Bullied & Accepting Her Body in a New Interview

Youtube star Bethany Mota‘s new memoir, Make Your Mind Up (watch the announcement here), delves into both her ups and her downs over the years, and in a new interview, Bethany gets real about some of the struggles she has been through.

“It was when Myspace was around,” the 21-year-old recalled to Entertainment Tonight in a Facebook Live interview, revealing that when she was young, bullies made a Myspace page identical to hers but “all of the photos had mean captions.”

She was only 12 at the time.

“I was never like, ‘Oh maybe I need to lose weight, maybe I need to go on a diet,’” she said, “Those thoughts had never crossed my mind until that point so that’s kind of when I lost that innocence.”

Reliving all of that pain to write the memoir was difficult for her: “I started feeling those feelings again and I started just remembering exactly what that felt like and it wasn’t a good time, it was a dark time and it was a little scary.”

Fortunately, she overcame her demons — in terms of both bullies and pressure to look a certain way to be accepted — and now she is focused on being healthy and strong.
