Lynelle Cantwell was sitting in math class when she found out the boys in her class had posted a poll asking who the ugliest girl at their school is. And Cantwell's name was on the list.
But, rather than let the bullies get to her, the teenager from Torbay, Newfoundland, spoke out.
"Just because we don't look perfect on the outside does not mean we are ugly. If that's your idea of ugly then I feel sorry for you. Like seriously? Get a life."
Cantwell's post has now gone viral, with more than 2,500 shares of her post and a slew of messages praising her for standing up.
"I'm so proud that you spoke up to let people know how cruel people can be," said one commenter. "If people need to put you and these other girls down in a vote, then they obviously have some really bad self esteem issues."
"I wanted the person who posted it to know what they did doesn’t affect me. I wanted to let them know they don’t know me as a person, they don’t know what I’m about, they’re not going to bring me down by one anonymous post."
