Hugh Jackman's Response to Girl's Video About Being Bullied

Hugh Jackman's Response to 10-Year-Old's Video About Being Bullied Will Warm Your Heart AND Soul

When a fourth-grader from Pennsylvania posted a video to Facebook trying to spread awareness about the pain of bullying, she probably didn't expect someone like Hugh Jackman to notice. But he did, and responded in a huge way.

In the video, Cassidy Warner, a 10-year-old girl who goes to John Adams Elementary School in Pennsylvania, held up pieces of paper describing the ways she's been bullied since the first grade. "One day during recess a group of kids grabbed my purse off of a teacher, and spit on it . . . and me," she wrote. "The group of kids always come up to me during recess, trying to fight me. They hit me, kicked me, pulled my hair, pushed me, stepped on me, spit on me."

After Cassidy posted the video, the school's district contacted Facebook and had her page shut down, according to her mom, Jenn Slater (Facebook requires users to be at least 13 years old), who then decided to share the video on her own Facebook page. "This does not stop here, I will be my daughters voice," Slater wrote. "I will share her story and I hope others will share too, this isn't about the shares or views or if it goes viral, it's about spreading awareness although seeing that smile on Cassidy's face each time the number of views and shares got larger was everything," she wrote. "She's upset she has to start all over but let's do this for her . . . please share her story. Let's put that smile back on her face!!!"

Since Jenn reposted the video, it has gotten millions of views and been picked up by multiple media outlets, which is where Jackman comes in: the Greatest Showman star not only helped Cassidy spread her message by sharing her video, but he also sent her a sweet message. "Hi Cassidy . . . I'm Hugh. I want you to know you're loved, special, and smart. You're strong, funny, and beautiful both inside and out. BULLYING IS NOT OK," he wrote. "Please never stop asking for help. You will find it from people and places you never thought possible. I'm your friend."
