Cyber bullying is quite new in the town with respect to others and it’s the one which is destroying lives. People don’t bother to think before posting stuff and intentionally or unintentionally hurt other people. Now a days people love bashing others on social media and the choice of words is worst. Mocking others on thier looks, dressing, religion is so common today on social media and people because of freedom of speech are just speaking ill. Mostly celebrities and politicians become the victims of cyber bullying. On the other side people getting into DMs on social apps also cyber bully others by sending explicit content, blackmailing others etc. The consequences of bullying can be severe.

Bullying needs to stop. Making people feel bad about themselves need to stop. Start respecting people’s feelings even if it doesn’t mean anything to you. It means everything to them.
