Emily Osment Speaks Out About Cyber-Bullying & Mental Health: 'Think Before You Speak'

Emily Osment, like many celebrities, has responded to the controversial Netflix series 13 Reasons Why — and she has a lot to say.

“I watched a few episode of ’13 Reasons Why’ this week and it reminded my of my own journey shooting Cyberbully in Montreal at nineteen,” she shared on Twitter.

“It was a grueling and emotional six weeks that will never leave me as long as I live. I went to work every day and sunk myself into a sorrow hole because I felt it was the only way to truly depict depression. I had to live it, and pulling myself out at the end was incredibly challenging, but ultimately a supremely rewarding experience.”

The Young & Hungry actress then pivots to talking about bullying itself.

“Cyber-bullying doesn’t have an age limit, even a [71] year old can be a bully. I still catch myself affected by what I read online in response to some of my more political or strident tweets.”

“Please think before you speak, let your words and your actions come from your heart and your heart only. And if no one has told you today, let me be the first to say you are beautiful and you are needed.”
