Chloe Lukasiak has inspired tons of fans after sharing an emotional YouTube video documenting her recent eye surgery. The Dance Moms star is now sharing why she's using her social media accounts to be open with her followers, and hopefully combat cyberbullying at the same time.
"My video was just sort of to say, 'Hey, this is what I’m going through and if you’re going through the same thing, that’s great,'" Chloe said in a new interview. "I got a lot of comments on the video, which were moving. A lot of people sort of said things that I didn’t know they’d be comfortable saying, and the fact that they’d be confident and comfortable saying those kinds of things—it's really great that I helped people come out of their shell in that way.
Chloe admits there are just as many genuine people out there who are learning about her story and sharing her own as there are bullies, so she wants to cater to them – without using her social media accounts to rant.
"There are mean people, but there are also nice people. And I think that when enough people say, 'Hey, that’s okay; don’t worry about that stuff,' people start to feel comfortable," Chloe shared. "I feel that a lot of people vent online and I know sometimes I wish I could, but sometimes (in my situation), it’s sort of hard to, other than in my video. When they have nice friends on social media, they can say nice things. It’s also easier saying them online than in person."
