Madonna made a very bold statement during her appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres’ show.
She says she’s “incredibly disturbed and saddened” by the number of teens who are committing suicide because of bullying.
She also told Ellen that bullying someone because they’re gay is as bad as “lynching black people or Hitler exterminating Jews.”
She says she, too, didn’t fit in with any crowd when she was in school. She felt incredibly lonely and “like a weirdo.”
She says it wasn’t until a ballet teacher introduced her to dancers, artists and musicians that she learned it was okay to be different.
