Rebecca Black

Yanked Out of School

After CONSTANT Harassment

8/10/2011 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rebecca Black Friday
Rebecca Black was getting made fun of at school SO MUCH after "Friday" came out -- that her mother decided to pull her out and began homeschooling the singer.  

Black just told ABC News ... students were constantly targeting her, explaining, "When I walk by they'll start singing 'Friday' in a really nasally voice ... Or, you know, they'll be like, 'Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?'"

Black's mom told ABC the move will also help the 14-year-old focus on her career.

She doesn't seem to grasp that she is only famous because people are laughing at her. It's a bit sad - but not.

American teenage girls, in general, are a nasty little bunch. Always backstabbing and gossiping.

She pulled her out of school because of THAT?!? Way to help her develop a thick skin. What is she going to do when music critics pan her album or she gets snubbed for a music award (assuming she gets that far) or celebs start making fun of her?

And TMZ sets up this 12 year old girl for yet another bashing. Why don't you all just leave her alone she is just a kid. Are Americans so twisted now that bashing a 12 year old is cool. You all need to get a life you bunch of F__KING life.

Pretty much the worst age for a girl to have something embarrassing go viral.

Obviously they shouldn't mock, but pretty predictable/understandable. Assuming, given the long term transience of fame, that an internet hit translates to a career seems optimistic and it'd be a safer bet just to do well at school/college. Bieber came from 'the internet' but unlike many of them has actual vocal talent (although I'd rather listen to test tones than his music because I don't like pop aimed at 13 year olds). I think, generally speaking, putting kids on the fame treadmill is a stupid thing to do and the idea of fame is a corrosive one.

Oh, the horror. If that is the worse of it, she should consider herself lucky. I believe this is a career move with Mom pulling the strings here.

she needs to toughen up if she plans to continue with this career choice. Instead of crying about it, she should have stood up for herself and bragged that she was on the radio, internet, tv, whatever and shot back at them that they are nothing special.
I don't like kids that are too in your face but she needs to stand up for herself regardless the situation
