Spirit Day is here, and Twitter is going purple! We’ve rounded up Tweets from celebs who are ready to go purple today to take a stand against bullying and support LGBT teens. From Ricky Martin to Emmy Rossum, these stars are showing their true spirit.
Shay Mitchell, one of Spirit Day’s ambassadors, has changed her Twitter pic purple to go with the day. She Tweeted:
Our own Ashley Rickards of "Awkward" fame also decided to purplize her pic. Remember when it was news when she went blond? Well, she’s going purple, baby! (Bonus points if you recognize her quote as coming from Gandhi!)
"You must be the change you wish to see in the world" Celebrate #Spiritday w/ me (tweet & wear purple 2 support) Be brave, be proud- be YOU.— Ashley Rickards (@AshleyRickards) October 19, 2012
Yesterday Lance Bass Retweeted this message to wear purple. Of course Lance was already on it, but the former boy bander must have wanted to give us all a friendly reminder:
Not only did "Phantom of the Opera" star Emmy Rossum let us know that she’s wearing purple today, she shared a pic with us. Now this is something to sing about:
Ellen Degeneres might not have specifically mentioned "purple" in her Tweet, but she’s keeping with the anti-bullying spirit of the day. Because, as much fun as it is to see how many shades of purple we go today, the real reason for this day is to give a big, loud "HELL NO" to bullying.
Rounding off our list (for now) is Ricky Martin, who gave everyone a heads up. He's living la vida purple:
