There has been a lot of media surrounding bullying lately, and especially that of kids who are homosexual. Lance Bass came out on the cover of the August 7, 2006 issue of People magazine, saying that he felt more liberated than he ever had been in his life.
But things weren’t always rosy for the singer. In fact, Lance has admitted on last night’s Larry King Live that he has bullied other gay students in a bid to fit in.
Lance said, “When you’re 13, 14, you just go along with what the other people are doing. You just want to fit in. You want to make sure that your friends like you. So yeah, you’re going to crack jokes, you’re going to laugh along with it. And when you’re a teenager, you’re not really thinking, ‘Oh, I’m being a bully by laughing along with it.’”
