AAB Founder Louise Burfitt-Dons warns of new online hazing targeted at eleven-year-olds.

Act Against Bullying is asking heads of all schools to be vigilant to an online bullying campaign. #anti2010 began in France on TikTok and had over 40 million views before removal. They’ve also been reports of it taking off on Twitter. The idea was to encourage older students to insult and harass younger children starting in their secondary school this year.  A form of online “hazing”.

We know that cyberbullying can be very frightening. Please be aware of any similar “copycat” campaign beginning in the UK so we can raise awareness before it takes root.
