Rebecca Black Pulled Out of School Because of Bullying
So, Rebecca Black has been forced to leave her high school in Anaheim, Calif. after being bullied nonstop for her hit single "Friday," says ABC News.
Black's mother is now homeschooling her to avoid bullies and focus on her career.
Since the Internet sensation's "Friday" music video went viral in March, the 14-year-old says she's been the target of school bullies who would tease her about the single. Added to the death threats, Black probably thought her non-sucky but boring follow-up "My Moment" would've been the answer, but it is not.
"It really sucks being bullied," Black says in a behind-the-scenes look at her new music video, "This is My Moment," last month. "But one thing that you can't do is let them stop you from doing what you want to do." "Primetime Nightline: Celebrity Secrets" airs the full interview with Black tonight on its special, "Underage and Famous."
