The former One Direction star wants people to "just be nice to everyone"
Niall Horan expressed his disgust with online bullies in a series of tweets this month.
On February 21, the Mullingar, Co Westmeath native slammed some online behavior as “disgusting:”
The way people talk to eachother online is disgusting. There’s no way you would ever say half of the stuff you do to someone’s face.Bravery behind the buttons of a phone. It’s a real shame as half the time , you don’t know the person you are talking to . Would anyone agree ?— Niall Horan (@NiallOfficial) February 21, 2019
He highlighted how most people don't even know the people they're harassing online:
People sitting on their phones talking to people they’ve never met from the other side of the world, calling eachother all sorts.— Niall Horan (@NiallOfficial) February 21, 2019
“People feel like they know you and they don’t,” the pop star said to his nearly 40 million followers:
I even see it when I come online . Because i go on stage , get seen on tv, get papped going for a coffee or whatever . People feel like they know you know and they just don’t. Just be nice to everyone and the world will be a much better place and social media is a good start— Niall Horan (@NiallOfficial) February 21, 2019
It’s not clear what prompted Horan to suddenly address the issue, but he insists that social media is a “good place to start” being kinder.
The string of tweets was far from Horan’s first time addressing cyberbullying. In November, he shared an anti-cyberbullying awareness post on his Facebook page:
We can make the internet a better place . Today is #StopSpeakSupport Day, part of #AntiBullyingWeek . Together we can...Publiée par Niall Horan sur Jeudi 15 novembre 2018
