Glee season 4 is still weeks away from its return, but Cory Monteith is managing to keep himself busy during his break. The actor will appear on The Glee Project this week as a mentor to this week's contestants, and he also is taking the time to lend support to a topic that is near and dear to him and many others on the Fox series - anti-bullying.
This topic has gained more support and recognition in recent years. Bullying has been a problem in schools for generations, but some are now taking a stance and speaking out against it. Monteith said the following about the topic, according to The Hollywood Reporter:
"Glee has always advocated for things like this and anti-bullying is close to a lot of the people's hearts who run, produce and star in the show, myself and [co-creator] Ryan Murphy included. It's high on everyone's priority list to lend our support to make people more aware that this is happening to real kids every day."
It is nice to see Cory Monteith taking a stance and supporting something that does effect many kids in the school system. Bullying is not just a problem in the school systems though, but it is something that impacts many in life.
For kids, it is especially difficult to deal with. Kids can be harsh. Many surely have their own tales about moments of bullying, but it does seem things have escalated in recent years. Bullying is something that can be stopped though.
What do you think? Will you be tuning in to watch this week's Glee Project?
