Jules Lund unites celebrities to tackle online trolls

2Day FM Breakfast host and anti-bullying advocate Jules Lund united with celebrities Ricky MartinLily AllenShane Warne and Samantha Jade to spread the #ZeroTrollerance message in a special show on the Today Network last night.
Jules, who recently launched his #ZeroTrollerance campaign, was heard from 10-11pm across the country in a one-hour program which highlighted the adverse effects of online bullying and trolling. 
In addition to interviewing a line-up of personalities, Jules also spoke to the culprits, trolls both current and reformed, in an effort to shed light on what drives them.
#ZeroTrollerance encourages people to remove power from abusive social media users by immediately blocking them. Jules has been calling on all social media users to take a stand against trolls and believes that, like any form of bullying, the power lies with the bystander. 

Jules Lund said: “Unfortunately many people make the mistake of trying to win the trolls over, or worse yet, engage in a heated battle of words. We’ve learnt that giving attention to trolls in any way only gives them power, and our message is to take joy in blocking. By supporting #ZeroTrollerance, we’re saying that we will no longer stand by, but stand up.”
Jules has used the power of radio and social media to spread the #ZeroTrollerance message in an effort to silence cyber bullies and trolls.
