Raini Rodriguez Opens Up About How Cyberbullying Got To Her & How She Turned It Around Into A Teachable Moment (Exclusive)

Cyberbullying is a huge issue right now and something that we need to tackle head on – and that’s exactly what Raini Rodriguez is doing.

If you’re a fan of the former Austin & Ally actress, like we are, you’ve probably noticed the ugly comments on her social media and you’ve noticed her lack of a reply. But there’s a reason for that.

“This has been happening since November of last year, but I didn’t say anything because I don’t like to give trolls their power by responding,” Raini tells JJJ when we caught up with her recently.

However, something changed between November and now – she had had enough.

“I saw what happened with Millie Bobby Brown and Kelly Marie Tran from Star Wars and both of them quit social media because of bullying and harassment and it really bothered me because somebody has to say something!” Raini added. “I’m not some HUGE star to say, ‘Every bully in the world stop!’”

“But for the people who are doing something to me, I said, ‘Stop! You do not have control over me and my thoughts and my positivity that I choose to spread. So I’m going to take this and make it a positive thing and continue posting what I want to post and living my best life and spreading my positivity to whoever likes to receive it because I’m not going to live my life according to you.’”

She continued, “When I saw that other people were letting it affect them, I understand it’s so hard. Especially when they make you feel like it’s all of them against you, one person against the entire Internet. That can be scary until you see people saying, ‘I support you, I love you, you’re amazing’ in your own support system, then you feel like you can conquer anything and you really can! You can’t let other people have the ability to control your life because it’s your life. You have to be who you want to be!”

Raini also spoke to us about how cyberbullying is taking over the internet and her advice for those affected by it.

While we all thought that season 10 would the end of the hit ABC show, it looks like Modern Family could get a season 11.

Series co-creator/executive producer/co-showrunner Christopher Lloyd shared that “We are very open to it. We have expressed that to ABC. I thunk it’s a complicated discussion, and that discussion is taking place.”

Although there is season 11 talk, if season 10 was the end, that would be okay, too.

“We [just] need to know relatively soon because if it’s the last season we need to know it’s the last season so we can to both recognize the show but also recognize the people been together for 10 years,” he added.
