Maybe we didn’t know Imogen Anthony as well as we thought. Known for her shocking hair, outrageous outfits and lively social media accounts, she’s surprised us once again by announcing she’ll be supporting the Reword campaign against cyber bullying. “There’s no such thing as freedom of speech if it is unwarranted hate and is at the detriment of someone else’s feelings. Be a human and think about it,” Imogen says.
So, why is she speaking out now, how hard is it managing your social media when you’re in the public eye – and why is she so passionate about cyber bullying?
“What a lot of you don’t know about me is that I was the subject of heavy bullying in primary school and again as late as high school. I bet a lot of you are saying “who wasn’t” right? Truth be known, bullying is as common as dirt.
I left school and moved on with my life, thinking that was finally behind me and was excited to work on becoming the person I wanted to be.
