NEW YORK, NY, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - BullyVille Inc., http://www.BullyVille.com, the Internet's first anti-bullying social website and media platform is excited to announce their new partnership with NFL player Bret Lockett!
Lockett will be joining the list of recent BullyVille celebrity spokespeople including: Dj ASHBA (lead guitarist for Guns N' Roses and Sixx:A.M.), Becca Tobin (Glee) and John Dodson (UFC fighter) to help put an end to bullying globally.
Lockett, who in the past helped the New England Patriots reach the Super Bowl and has just signed a new 2013/2014 season contract with the New York Jets, had this to say in a statement to the press upon revealing this new partnership: "I am extremely excited to partner and lend my voice to such an important website and cause. I have experienced bullying first-hand growing up, and I couldn't be more proud to join in and lend my voice to ending this terrible trend within our society. People wait for someone to set an example instead of being the example set for others. There are already tons of followers but we never have enough leaders. All I want to convey through my words and by joining BullyVille is to not be timid. If you witness something, speak up and report it. It is never too early and never too late to stop a bully and potentially save someone's life."
With Lockett, the bullying just doesn't stop with humans. He recently stripped down for an anti-fur and animal abuse campaign alongside People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), and has spoken-out at various events across North America about living a healthy, active and successful lifestyle without the means of bullying through his Looking Forward Foundation with rapper Snoop Dogg.
James McGibney, a former US Marine and founder/CEO of BullyVille.com, couldn't be more impressed with Lockett's actions stating, "Individuals such as Bret who put others first and care more for the greater good are a rare find. We are excited to have him join our BullyVille mission and if anyone knows about coming together as a team and winning the battle, in this case bullying, it's Bret Lockett!"
