Derek Jeter, Von Miller, Danica Patrick, And Other Athletes Stand Up To Cyberbullying
Some of the biggest names in sports are banning together to Stand Up against cyberbullying.
The Players’ Tribune gathered Derek Jeter, Von Miller, Danica Patrick, Michael Phelps, and Karl-Anthony Towns for a video featuring the athletes reading hateful comments directed at them, and discussing the broader implications of poisonous words. Then the athletes vow to “stand up” and celebrate diversity in all forms, even in the face of hatred.
“Don’t ever let anyone tell you what you can’t do, what you can do. That’s not for them to judge. That’s for you to judge,” Towns said.
Here’s the video:
The Players’ Tribune will roll out additional videos over the next few weeks featuring different athletes (like Joel Embiid, Brandon Marshall, and Abby Wambach), who address other important social issues.
Stay tuned, and in the meantime, don’t hide behind a keyboard and dispense hate.
