Queen Latifah is urging mums and dads across America to get tough with the parents of bullies in a bid to end the trend of teenage torment which has led to a spate of school suicides this year (10).
The rapper-turned-actress has become the latest celebrity to speak out against bullying in schools, insisting parents need to look for signs that their kid isn't happy at school.
The Chicago star says, "I think a lot of times kids who are bullies get away with it because no one confronts their parents. Parents have to step (up) to other parents and say, 'Listen, your son or daughter is texting my son or daughter, or emailing, or tweeting, or Facebook-ing or talking about my child or pressuring them in some sort of way.
"They've gotta step in for these kids... We've gotta fight for our kids. It's a shame... No child should have to lose their life through a senseless killing and that's really just the saddest thing of all. No parent should have to be on TV explaining that."
Latifah, real name Dana Owens, reveals she was picked on at school because she had big breasts: "Later, I found that having big breasts was a really good thing, and people were paying for this."
