“Tall Girl” star Ava Michelle, Britain’s biggest TikTok star Holly H and Canadian-Iranian Formula One racer Nicholas Latifi are among stars taking part in Cybersmile’s 10th Stop Cyberbullying Day global event.

With the impact of online abuse being felt by many internet users around the world, Cybersmile have revealed their latest activities for this year’s event to encourage a kinder more inclusive internet.

Holly H, Britain’s biggest social media influencer with her 16 million TikTok followers, has revealed in an exclusive interview with Cybersmile her personal perspectives on the current issues facing young internet users - especially on subjects including mental health, and how she deals with negativity online.

Nicholas Latifi, who was recently announced as an official Cybersmile ambassador, also shared his perspectives in a sit-down interview with the charity about the affects of online abuse, and his take on how to begin to address the issues around it.

With so many young Gen Z users connecting each day online, companies and brands have been seeking to support their communities with new tools and educational materials.

Urban Decay, which recently partnered with Cybersmile to help bring new educational resources to users, jointly announced today a new initiative with “Tall Girl” actress Ava Michelle and a host of influencers.

Earlier today, English Premier League football players including Jordan Henderson, Declan Rice, Harry Maguire, Kasper Schmeichel, Ben Mee and Jermaine Jenas took part in a powerful campaign to demonstrate the hidden impact of social media abuse on our emotions and overall wellbeing - illustrated through profile pictures that showed bruised faces. Cybersmile and Ten Toes launched the campaign to coincide with the launch of this year's Stop Cyberbullying Day event.

Internet users have also been participating in Stop Cyberbullying Day around the world by sharing their personal experiences and views on social media using the #StopCyberbullyingDay hashtag.
