JLS star Aston Merrygold reveals bullying ordeal

JLS singer Aston Merrygold has revealed how he was bullied when he was younger because of his race. Aston stated that he felt terrible about himself because of the bullying ordeal and lost all of the confidence he had in himself.

Merrygold explained, “I know what it feels like to be bullied. When I joined my school football team aged 14 I was abused because of my race. I was the only black kid on the team and some of the others picked on that. I am mixed race, half black and half white, but they would call me 'Paki' because they thought I looked Asian. They would say things like 'you little black b******'. Looking back now, it was disgusting.”
He added, “I lost all my confidence while I was being bullied. It makes you question everything about yourself; your appearance, how you act, where you're from. It becomes harder and harder to talk to someone even though talking to someone is the right thing to do. Things are even tougher for young people today because of cyber-bullying. When you are getting bullied online it can feel hard to escape.”
Aston continued, “I think what happened to Cher Lloyd was awful. She's an amazing singer and a great talent but she was tormented by internet trolls. That probably made her not want to do this job anymore. But look at her now; she's grown into a fantastic, beautiful, strong young woman. She shows you don't need to give into the bullies.” Aston Merrygold was one of the famous faces to take part in the anti bullying campaign, The Big March yesterday.
