The Wanted's Nathan Sykes Offers Advice To Fans Who Suffer From Cyber Bullying

12 August 2013, 10:54

The 'We Own The Night' singer admits he has been a victim of internet bullies in the past.

The Wanted's Nathan Sykes has spoken out against online bullying and urged fans to "unfollow" people who troll them on sites like Facebook and Twitter.

The 'Walks Like Rihanna' singer admits he himself has received death threats online from other band's fans, and says having strong support from friends is the best way to deal with it.

"I'm in a position where I've seen hate from people who maybe don't like the band," Nathan revealed to The Metro this week. "I didn't know what I'd done, but then realised they associated me with the band.

"But the way they say things, the fact that people can hide behind a computer screen, they'd never say it to your face," they explained. "They have that power, almost of hiding behind a computer so they can be more expressive and a lot nastier.

"You can block these people, you can remove them from your timeline, you can unfollow them," he added. "You don't have to be 'friends' with these people and you can ignore them. That is the best way of dealing with it.

"Also, speak to your friends, keep  on interacting with them as ugh as possible and you will feel a lot better."
