The stars came out in support of the film Bully in New York City last night. Victoria Justice, Joel McHale, Giuliana Rancic, Avan Jogia and Wilmer Valderrama were among those in attendance.

The Weinstein Co. is moving past the R rating earned by its documentary Bully and plans to release the film unrated.

The company announced Monday that “Bully” will hit theatres March 30 without a rating from the Motion Picture Association of America, meaning some theatre may choose not to show it.

Filmmaker Lee Hirsch said he declined to edit the documentary’s offensive language because it would diminish the painful reality of bullying. 

“The small amount of language in the film that’s responsible for the R rating is there because it’s real. It’s what the children who are victims of bullying face on most days,” Hirsch said.

Please, please go and see this film. Even if your eyes were open already to the bullying epidemic, this film will open your eyes just a little further.
