As you know, One Direction have launched an anti-bullying campaign with Office Depot.


Now, the boys have released videos of themselves expressing their own indivivual thoughts on bullying.

The boys take the subject very seriously and they’re trying their hardest to raise awareness of bullying and help deal with it.

Speaking about bullying, Harry said:  “I think bullying is such a huge problem that I think so many people just overlook because it’s kind of always been there and it’s always been an underlying thing.”

“It’s almost like now the bullies aren’t going to say that there’s something happening and then so many of the people being bullied are scared to say that they’re being bullied. Even in terms of school they don’t want to say that they have a bullying problem, so it’s all kind of like a cover up.”

Harry seems very passionate about bullying, and the other boys are not much different either.

Louis said: “I think in a way bullying might be easier with the likes of social networking. You will get some kids that get bullied that are a bit more feisty and brave and they can stand up for themselves, whereas other people are quite timid and are less confident.”

And Zayn discussed how hard it is to speak up about it and actually address the issue in the first place: “There are always little things that you see and you felt like….. when you were in school and stuff…. that you maybe should have done something about it or said something about it but it can be quite difficult because you’re in your social groups….It is quite upsetting to see.”

Liam speaks about how bullying can go too far, and plucking up the courage to do something about it. Niall discusses how he can understand how these victims feel, being that he’s still young and he knows what goes on in schools these days.

Here’s the boys’ individual thoughts on bullying.

  • Sarah Payne

    Yay first comment

  • Sarah Payne

    So proud of our boys

  • Maddison Strubhar

    IT’s official….our boys have done everything….could they get more perfect?? <3

  • ツ Moon Malik ツ

    I’m glad the boys are doing this but honestly this isn’t going to stop or slow down the bullying. Because kids have the power to whatever they want with other kids. But if the kids that are bullied stand up for themselves because of the boys then well the boys and the victims will feel nice

  • becca

    I am soo proud of The boys doing this cos I know what it is like to be bullied and it nice to see that the boys are giving us so much support and advice to help to deal with the situation

  • sduffy

    • ♥Mrs. Emma Tommo♥

      Omg yeeess! Hahahahh

  • Ya$hika

    I feel so good that our lads are doing such stuff and I quite a lot appreciate their support towards anti bullying programs. I love them, they’re all so good at heart #AntiBullying

  • Josephine Gilmore

    These Videos of the boys discussing bullying has inspired me to speak up about bullying and I have been bullying all my life and I should have done this years ago

  • Stini2526

    so pround im for this because i was bulled in high school

  • Riel Whittle

    This posses the question: what is bulling? What’s the true definition? I feel as though I haven’t been bullied or really haven’t seen much of it personally but then again I might have bullying is such a broad term I think and because of it adults will not always help and when they do in some ways they make it worse

  • brianna horan

    Niall touched my heart

  • Ruchi

    The amount of times they all said like and you know. Touching

  • Laura

    It’s almost almost ironic that I only get bullied by people in this fandom.

  • Ailynnn

    So proud of them.I was bullied in high school and until now I still have that phobia of some people that has attitude towards other people.. Until now nobody knows about it that was a mistake.

  • Directioner ∞

    i thought liam’s video wouldve been the longest since he has experienced alot of bullying as a young lad

    • Isabella

      Sometimes it can be really hard to talk about that. I did notice his was one of the shortest ones, but it’s quite possibly because it can be so hard to talk about bullying. I know, because I’m the same.

  • Cassidy(;

    Yeah I’m so proud of them cuz they really encouraged me to be confident this year and stand up to the bullies. I’m always being pushed into walls and one girl even slammed my hand in a locker and sprained it. I’ve even been told to die and they even threatend to kill me and beat me up. I really am gonna stand up now I’m gonna stop skipping class sometimes and stand up to them.

    • NiallGirl23

      You go girl for standing up to those bullies I did the same and it really helped a lot and I told someone and then the bullying stopped completely.I`m proud of you.

    • Tildisen <3

      Who was it?! We Directioners can beat them up until they come crawling on all fours and apologize!
      Sorry I get upset, but who knows. It might work to bully the bullies? We can push them into an ice cold pool and force them to listen to Taylor Swift or The Wanted; ) Dead to the bullies!

  • 1Dlol

  • A’alyciaP._1D

    I’m glad they’re doing this because I get bullied a lot and literally without them, without me discovering the video diaries I honestly don’t know if I’ll still be here now, yes, I think about suicide all the time but then those 5 boys, those 5 boys who changed my life. Those 5 boys who make me feel worth it worth the air I breath. I wish I could tell them u guys saved my life :) I’m so proud of u guys. #together

  • A’alyciaP._1D

    A girl on instagram told me to go kill myself and to cut my jugular vain..I don’t know why I didn’t say anything got her to say that…I will never understand how people can sit in front of a human being and say kill yourself. Who could be heartless enough to do something like that

    • NiallGirl23

      A lot of people are that heartless sadly.

  • Paola Guerrero


  • Rylee Burgess

    It’s really nice to know that the boys understand what so many people go through. I’m just incredibly proud of these boys :)

  • Nicole Horan

    I’m strongly against bullying, I got bullyed for seven years straight. And I used to cut my wrist but I stopped because I suddenly got confidence. :) my story…

  • Chassity Varnold

    Bullying Is NOT OKAY! It Can Lead To Some Serious Problems.. Like People Cutting.. Or EVEN Suicide. Tbh My Sister Was Bullied… This Guy Pulled A Knife On Her…. Then I Defended Her.. Then The Guy Cut My Hand.. Cuz I Was Trying To Defend My Sister…

    • Tildisen <3

      Wow…. That’s really deep.. How you can sleep after that…??

      • Chassity Varnold

        I Didn’t Sleep For Days Because Of It.

  • Harry’s Cupcake


  • Miranda

    I couldn’t be more proud I get bullied all the time! And it’s for the stupidest things like I don’t have a lot of money I don’t wear the right clothes or even that I don’t have a perfect relationship! It hurt and it still hurts I cry myself to sleep and I wake up finding out I actually cried in my sleep it stings but I’m working my hardest to for get that he broke up with me and left in the army for 3 years! The worst thing is is that my parents don’t know what to do they’ve never been in my situation before so I have no one to talk to like I feel alone!

  • directioner4eva

    I really wish that the boys would do some work with schools for anti-bullying. I’m an Anti-Bullying Ambassador at my school in Crawley, England, and I really think that so many more people would be aware of ways to get help. It would give so many people in my school more confidence to speak up…

  • Jenna

    Niall’s biceps…….aaaahhhhhh!

  • Olivia Renaud 1D fan
