As I have written about before, The Originals actress Leah Pipes has been dealing with her fair share of criticism from both journalists and fans alike over her character Camille O'Connell. Leah recently mentioned this in a tweet to her fans.
While this may just seem like a general tweet there have been issues with this in the past, with fans speaking out about everything from her looks to her acting ability.
Leah had a positive message for the fans in response, truly grateful for the kind words stating
Holy feelin' the love! Sending some mushy goodness back to my fans. Your support means so much I can't even.
One fan in particular decided to take her support one step further.
She created the twitter account @klamilleislove to show her support for both the actress and her main pairing on the show, Klaus and Cami. Building onto that, after seeing the bullying, she decided to create a charity donation inspired by the fandom through actress Brittany Snow's charity, Love is Louder, which was "created to address the issues of bullying, negative self-image, discrimination, loneliness and depression." When asked about the inspiration the user stated:
"Bullying is in everyday life, but we can end it by bringing awareness and supporting 'Love is Louder'"
Fans have already raised $1100 and are spreading their love and support for both Leah and the fight against internet bullying.
Help join the cause and donate here:
Please note: Leah is not personally associated with the charity, this was done by fans in her name.
