Eleven-year-old Logan Fairbanks wants to put an end to online bullying. 

He and his dad post YouTube videos of the two playing pranks on one another, but this video is far from their normal. Fairbanks asked his dad to help him record a video where he reads comments people posted on his videos. This is the first time that Fairbanks has seen any of the comments posted.

Celebrities have been posting videos of hurtful comments made about them online. 

His dad says his motivation to make the video is “to encourage other people to not bully” and to help people who have been bullied “to not let words hurt them.”

After the video was posted to YouTube, Fairbanks began receiving support from others telling him to "stay strong." Even though he has been getting mainly positive responses there have still been some negative comments.
