Check out the second video of our three-part “Act’n Up” series with Colton Haynes from “Teen Wolf.” (The first vid was posted last week.) This week, he tells us about his work with MTV’s anti-bullying campaign Love Is Louder.
“I was not Jackson in high school. I was not your jock who was the popular kid…especially when I was younger,” said Colton Haynes, who play’s Scott’s bully in “Teen Wolf.” “So I dealt with things that a lot of kids deal with in high school: bullying, name-calling and things like that. So this specific movement spoke to me.”
Haynes is referring to Love Is Louder, an MTV campaign launched in partnership with Brittany Snow and The Jed Foundation last fall in response to increased reports of LGBT teen suicides. Love Is Louder asks supporters to take a stand against bullying and hate by uploading their messages of love to your.mtv.com or tweeting the message @loveislouder. In addition to Haynes, the campaign is backed by celebs like Demi Lovato, Vanessa Hudgens, Pink, Drake, Trey Songz, Kellen Lutz and “Jersey Shore”‘s JWOWW, Snooki and Vinny.
