Justin Bieber & Johnny Depp: Anti-Bullying Buddies

Posted Wednesday March 14, 2012 5:30 PM GMT

They’re both major worldwide superstars, so when Justin Bieber and Johnny Depp both threw their support behind the anti-bullying film “Bully,” everyone took notice.

The “One Less Lonely Girl” singer and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor are the latest to sign on for the cause to assign “Bully” a PG-13 rating rather than R.

They say that changing the rating will allow more kids to see the important film, and Michigan high schooler Katy Butler has begun a petition that already has 300,000 signatures.

Additionally, Miss Butler, a victim of bullying herself, has 26 members of Congress supporting the initiative, as well as Oscar winner Meryl Streep.
