Perhaps this was inevitable: 14 year-old internet star Rebecca Black revealed on ABC Nightline that she has been forced out of school by bullies. Whenever Rebecca walked by, her classmates would start singing “Friday” in a nasally voice or would taunt her with comments like, “Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?” Eventually, the teasing became so unbearable that she had to be homeschooled.
While I’m a little envious Rebecca’s status as a millionaire, I think I’d choose a social life and the general respect of my peers over her bank account any day. Nor will it end here. I don’t know how long people will remember “Friday,” but it’s bound to come up when she goes to college or walks into a job interview. (Oh wait, she won’t need a job because she’s a freakin’ millionaire).
