Beroemde personen die vroeger werden gepest

Dit is een lijst van beroemde personen die vroeger werden gepest. Pesten is een groot probleem! Vroeger werd er heel weinig aan het stoppen van pesten gedaan. Er werd vaak gezegd dat je van pesten sterker zou worden?! Door onderzoeken van o.a. Rijks Universiteit Groningen (RUG) weten wij nu; dat dit allemaal niet waar is, dat je niets leert van pesten. Gelukkig is hier de laatste jaren meer aandacht voor, zodat wij kunnen beginnen met het stoppen van pesten.

Deze gepeste mensen hebben inmiddels hele succesvolle banen: Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Christina Aguilera, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Emma Wadson, Miley Cirus, Steven Spielberg, Presidenten Bill Clinton en Barack Obama, Kate Middleton, Prins Harry, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Chester Bennington, Tiger Woods, Pierce Brosnan en nog vele anderen. Hieronder tref je een overzicht van deze mensen.

Maar ook Bekende Nederlanders zijn gepest zoals Jan Smit, Albert Verlinde, Marlies Dekker, Anita Witzier, Jamai Loman, Fred van Leer, Froukje de Both, Charly Luske, Daphne Dekkers, Pauline Huizinga, Mike Weerts, Maurics Wijnen en ook vele YouTubers zoals: Don (Game Meneer), Rutger Vink (Furtjuh), Enzo en Milan Knol 

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga vertelde in een interview dat ze veel gepest werd toen ze jong was. Ze werd getreiterd met haar uiterlijk. Volgens de zangeres had ze een enorme neus, korte bruine krullen en was ze te dik. "Ze hadden veel om me mee te pesten," vertelt ze. Ook is ze meerdere keren in een afvalbak gestopt, arme Lady Gaga! Volgens haarzelf is ze door de pesterijen een sterker persoon geworden. Tegenwoordig strijdt ze voor gelijkheid en respect.

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay begon al vroeg als actrice. Door haar klasgenootjes werd ze veel gepest omdat ze beroemd was en in films speelde. Ook bracht haar vader het grootste deel van haar jeugd door in de gevangenis. Haar jeugd was dus niet makkelijk. Tegenwoordig zet ze zich in voor de strijd tegen pesters. Go Lindsay!

Selena Gomez

Hoewel Selena echt práchtig is, werd ze vroeger toch gepest om haar uiterlijk. Selena vertelde dat haar klasgenoten haar plaagden omdat ze klein was. Ook hoorde ze nooit ergens bij. Dat maakte haar vroeger erg onzeker en verlegen. Ondertussen is daar niets meer van over. Selena is een inspirerende, hardwerkende vrouw die de harten van velen onder ons veroverd heeft.

Justin Bieber

Ook onze man crush werd vroeger gepest door veel van zijn klasgenootjes. Had jij dat verwacht? Wij in ieder geval niet! Wat zullen de pestkoppen nu veel spijt hebben...

Madonna

The queen of pop was niet altijd zo zelfverzekerd en populair als tegenwoordig. Ook zij was vroeger het slachtoffer van vervelende pesterijtjes omdat ze er anders uitzag dan de rest. De meeste tijd bracht ze in haar eentje door en ze hoorde nergens bij. Tegenwoordig is daar niks meer van over, Madonna is een echte powervrouw.

Demi Lovato
 
Demi werd misschien wel het meest gepest van alle celebrities uit dit lijstje. Ze werd zelfs een keer uren lang opgesloten in de badkamer. Na dit incident besloten haar ouders dat het genoeg was en werd ze van school afgehaald. Tegenwoordig vertegenwoordigt Demi de anti-pest organisatie PACER die slachtoffers van pesten probeert te steunen en helpen.
 
Rihanna
Rihanna werd van kleins af aan gepest met haar huidskleur. Gelukkig liet ze zich niet tegenhouden door de pesters en is ze inmiddels één van de beroemdste vrouwen ter wereld.
 
Kristen Stewart

Kristen werd vroeger door haar klasgenootjes gepest omdat ze eruit zou zien als een jongen. Ze lachten haar uit om haar mannelijke kleding. Ondertussen is Kristen model voor Balenciaga en Chanel. You rock!
