Chris Colfer’s Voice Once Got Him Bullied, Now It Gets Him Bank!

Chris Colfer admits that in high school he was bullied because of his sexuality and his voice specifically.

“Absolutely, yeah,” he said. “I was teased every day, mainly because of my voice. They said I sounded like a chipmunk! Now everyone likes to remind me how they used to be my best friend, but I have a very good memory – that wasn’t always the case.

I was really intense at high school because I knew what I wanted to do. I was in a small town in the middle of nowhere and everything seemed impossible. People liked to feed off that and make me feel as if it was impossible.

I love stories like this where the trait that the person was mocked for goes on to become the trait that skyrockets the person to fame and fortune.

In other words, “TAKE THAT BITCHES!” That’s why people should remember to embrace every single thing about themselves, no matter what people say. One day, you’ll come into your own.
