It Chapter Two’s Jack Dylan Grazer (Eddie Kaspbrak) is STOMP Out Bullying’s latest Global Ambassador, an organisation known to be the 'most influential anti-bullying and cyberbullying organisation in America."
First of all, check out what Jack wrote in his Instagram post:
I "Hey everyone, hoping you’ll be joining me and Standing Up against bullying. See the official announcement of me now being a Global Ambassador for the cause."
After this sentence, Jack inserts the announcement.
Here's the gist of STOMP Out Bullying: It's a leading anti-bullying organisation for children and teens in the US and “educates against homophobia, LGBTQ discrimination, racism and hatred” while promoting equality for all.
So what exactly will Jack be doing this year?
Basically, World Day of Bullying Prevention is on the first Monday of every October, and this year, the date lies on 7 October.
On that day, Jack will be leading his high school's “Blue Shirt Day” - a day where students all over the world unite by wearing the colour blue to speak out for bullying prevention.
This isn't the first time Jack supported STOMP Out Bullying.
Jack previously released limited design merchandise, ranging from T-shirts to hoodies priced between $26-43 with a portion of the proceeds going STOMP Out Bullying.
For National Bullying Prevention Month, Jack released the ‘I’m a Lover’ Apparel (most likely referencing It Chapter One (2017) where his character, Eddie Kaspbrak, wore an arm cast that spelt out "Lover".)
I "Hey guys! I created this limited edition design just for you to show my love for all of your support! It's National Bullying Prevention Month, so remember to always be a lover and not a fighter!"
And for ‘Superhero Day’, (most likely referencing Shazam! (2019), where Jack played Freddy Freeman who later became a superhero).
I "Hey guys! This Superhero Day, help me spread awareness and stand up against bullying! Let's find our inner superpowers!"
Which other celebrities spoke out for STOMP Out Bullying?
Previous celebrities include Spider-Man: Homecoming’s cast, Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), Zendaya (MJ), Jacob Batalon (Ned) and Laura Harrier (Liz), as well as Chloe Grace Moretz and Avengers: Endgame’s Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda / Scarlet Witch).
We love that these celebrities care about preventing bullying, and who else is thinking how great it would be if more schools and businesses participated on the day? Maybe one day, bullying will become a thing of the past.]
But for now, let's remember to wear our blue shirts on 7 October. Who's with us?
