James Woods, other national figures react to 11-year-old’s viral reading of bullies’ cruel comments

An 11-year-old found out that there’s nothing like the anonymity of the Internet to bring out the cruel jerk in some people, but also that fighting back is powerful as he scored mountains of backing — including social media support from conservative actor James Woods and his legions of followers.

Heck, even the White House noticed.

Logan Fairbanks and his father Josh, 30, of Hartford, Mich., often post YouTube videos of their hijinks together, but when Logan started seeing a lot of hateful comments directed at him he decided to take action by making a much more serious video.

He said he made the video “to encourage other people who have been bullied to not let words hurt them.”

Logan read the hurtful remarks calling him fat, stupid, ugly and some going even lower with comments like “I hope he gets cancer” and “I hope he dies,” for the better part of the 2 minute video.

The wise beyond his years 11-year-old ended the video with no words of anger or hatred like those directed at him, but simply told his tormenters that he hoped they didn’t bully anyone online anymore and told bullying victims to not let words affect them.

Here’s how Woods took up his cause.

And here’s how Woods’ followers responded.

At 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., someone brought Logan’s work to the attention of Valerie Jarrett, the Obama senior adviser who knows a thing or two about bullying herself, since she and her boss try to do it so much.

Naturally, the Fairbanks are taking her up on it.

Any “future occupant” of the White House with guts like Logan will be a welcome change, indeed.
