>>> HELLO, EVERYONE, WELCOME TO BUILD, THE MORNING SHOW WHERE WE TALK ABOUT THE LATEST TOPICS IN ENTERTAINMENT.

>> I'M BRITTANY JONES COOPER.

>> I'M SHANNON COFFEY.

>> I’M KERRY JUSTICH.

>> I'M LUCAS THIMM.

>> WE'RE TALKING ABOUT BTS AND THEIR HISTORY-MAKING MILESTONE. ASHLEY GRAHAM'S NEW SEXY CLOTHING LINE. AND WE HAVE A FIRST LOOK AT THE NEWEST TRAILER FOR THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED FANTASTIC BEASTS MOVIE. PLUS FOUNDER AND CEO OF STOMP OUT BULLYING, ROSS ELLIS JOINS THE TABLE. VERY EXCITED.

>> BUT FIRST LIKE A SCENE OUT OF ONE OF HIS ACTION MOVIES, WILL SMITH CELEBRATED TURNING 50 BY SUCCESSFULLY BUNGEE JUMPING OUT OF A HELICOPTER NEAR THE GRAND CANYON.

>> WHILE THE STUNT WAS A CHALLENGE FROM THE YES THEORY, A YOUTUBE CHANNEL THAT MAKES VIDEOS OF PEOPLE DOING ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE OF THEIR COMFORT ZONE, IT ALSO RAISED MONEY FOR GLOBAL EDUCATION. LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT HOW IT ALL WENT DOWN.

>> FIVE, FOUR, THREE, TWO, ONE.

>> I WOULD HAVE BEEN SCREAMING LIKE A --

>> SWEAT IS COMING OUT OF ME JUST WATCHING OUT.

>> IT'S AN ADRENALINE RUSH FOR ME.

>> WHEN HE DROPS BACK UP FROM BEHIND THAT ROCK, I WAS LIKE, OH, SHIT, THAT IS SCARY.

>> THE GRAND CANYON WAS NOT THE PLACE TO DO THIS.

>> HE'S THE ONE THAT CAME UP WITH THAT. YOU WATCH THE VIDEO AND HE ACCEPTS THEIR CHANGE, LET'S DO THE GRAND CANYON.

>> WHY ISN'T IT A GOOD PLACE?

>> YOU'RE ABOVE ROCKS. DON'T YOU USUALLY GO ABOVE WATER?

>> IF YOU HIT WATER THAT FAST, IT'S AS BAD AS ROCKS, IF YOU'RE GOING TO DIE, JUST DIE.

>> THAT'S TRUE.

>> I'M WITH YOU, DIE AT THE SEVENTH WONDER OF THE WORLD, MORE MEANINGFUL.

>> IT'S A MENTAL THING. I HIT WATER. DIE ANYWAY. THE ONLY THING, WHEN I DID THE TOWER OF TERROR FOR THE FIRST TIME, SIMILAR, RIGHT? THAT FEELING YOUR STOMACH GETS, YOU'RE LIKE --

>> IT'S LIKE, YEAH --

>> LIKE A LITTLE -- IT'S RIGHT HERE, YEAH.

>> I'M GOING TO GO MIDWEST ON YOU. I USED TO GO TO WORLDS OF FUN GROWING UP IN KANSAS CITY. NOPE, NOBODY? JUST ME. COOL. THEY HAVE THIS THING CALLED THE RIP CORD, THAT'S THE CLOSEST I'VE COME. YOU'RE IN CHARGE OF YOUR OWN FATE. WHICH IS REALLY HARD FOR A 15-YEAR-OLD TO GRASP.

>> I WOULD NEVER PULL IT.

>> YEAH, I PULLED IT, I DID IT.

>> YOU HAD TO PUSH OUT OF THERE. I WOULD HAVE TO GET PUSHED.

>> CRYING, CRYING. YOU FALL.

>> DON'T YOU LOVE WHAT HE'S DOING WITH HIS SOCIAL MEDIA? DO YOU FOLLOW HIM ON INSTAGRAM?

>> I THINK HE'S THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO YOUTUBE BECAUSE IT'S SO UNEXPECTED THAT "A" A CELEBRITY WOULD BE A BIG HIT. MOST OF THE TIME WHEN SOMEBODY GOES TO YOUTUBE, THEY'RE NOT SUCCESSFUL, EVERYBODY'S BORED BY THEM, THEY'RE LIKE, IT'S OVERFABRICATED AND VERY CORPORATE. HE IS SUCH A GENUINE, REAL PERSON. BUT ALSO, IT'S REALLY GOOD BECAUSE THERE HAVE BEEN OTHER CELEBRITIES TO MAKE IT ON THE PLATFORM, BUT THEY'VE BEEN YOUNGER. AND YOUTUBE HAS ALWAYS BEEN LIKE THAT'S FOR YOUNG PEOPLE. OLD PEOPLE GET OFF OF IT. THIS OLD ASS MAN IS MAKING IT HAPPEN. HE'S SUPER COOL, AND IT'S WORKING.

>> THE DAD THAT YOUTUBE ALWAYS NEEDED.

>> YEAH.

>> SORT OF LIKE, YEAH, A 50-YEAR-OLD CAN BE COOL. THE PRODUCTION VALUE OF WHAT HE DOES IS VERY POLISHED, BUT NOT TOO POLISHED. HE HAS A SMART TEAM BEHIND HIM, BUT HE'S STILL AUTHENTIC. ANYBODY LOVES WILL SMITH.

>> YEAH. HE'S DOING INSTAGRAM AND YOUTUBE BETTER THAN ANY 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL I'VE EVER SEEN. HE IS A TWEEN-AGER AT ITS BEST. BUT HE'S AWESOME. WILL SMITH, IF YOU REMEMBER, WAS HAVING A LOT OF BOMBS AT THE BOX OFFICE AND WAS LOSING HIS CREDIBILITY IN TERMS OF A MOVIE STAR. THAT WASN'T WORTH THE BIG PAYCHECK. WHAT'S INTERESTING IS THAT HE'S TURNED TO NEW MEDIA TO REHABILITATE HIS IMAGE AND HIS PERSONA. THAT NOW I'M EXCITED TO SEE HIM IN WHATEVER HE DOES. HE IS SO LIKABLE AND GENUINE ON THESE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS THAT I THINK IT'S GOING TO HELP HIS MOVIES AS WELL. IT'S CHANGING THE NARRATIVE AROUND HIM AS A PERSON.

>> AND HE'S GOING TO PLAY THE GENIE IN THE ACTION VERSION OF ALADDIN, WHICH IS GREAT. AS FAR AS WHO'S AVAILABLE, THAT IS A GOOD CHOICE.

>> TOTALLY.

>> HE'S SO ANIMATED AND LOVED, AND GENUINE. I THINK IT WILL BE --

>> HE WON'T PLAY IT THE SAME, REALLY.

>> RIGHT.

>> LIVING HIS BEST LIFE.

>> HE REALLY IS.

>> OTHER CELEBRITIES TURNING 50, LUCY LIU, VERY SURPRISED ABOUT THAT, SHOCKED. I DIDN'T THINK SHE WAS ON EARTH THIS LONG. I THOUGHT -- YOU KNOW, COOL, SHE LOOKS GREAT.

>> AWESOME.

>> LUCY LU, HUGH JACKMAN, ANDY COHEN.

>> GOOD 50-YEAR-OLDS.

>> BACK TO THE SMITHS, I WONDER HOW MUCH THIS IS PART OF THEIR -- THEY MUST HAVE THE BEST BRANDING STRATEGY BEHIND THE FAMILY. JADA PINKETT SMITH IS SHARING A LOT OF PERSONAL STORIES WITH WILLOW AND HER MOM. THEY'RE ALL THE SUDDEN THE SMITH FAMILY IS SUPER RELEVANT AGAIN.

>> THEY REALIZE THAT PEOPLE WANT TO BE BROUGHT INTO THE HOMES OF CELEBRITIES. THAT'S HOW THEY REINVENTED THEMSELVES.

>> I WANT TO -- THEY ARE SCIENTOLOGISTS.

>> NO, THEY'RE NOT.

>> I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THAT.

>> THIS IS ALL BIG LIKE REHABILITATING THE WHOLE THING.

>> I NEVER HEARD THAT.

>> THEY'RE SCIENTOLOGY ADJACENT. I THINK THEY MAYBE DABBLE BUT THEY BOTH SAID, NO, WE ARE NOT --

>> THEY HAVE THEIR OWN IDEOLOGY.

>> KIDS DON'T BELIEVE IN TIME OR SCHOOL OR BIRTHDAYS.

>> I THINK THEY'RE SO SMART FOR THAT. BECAUSE TIME IS JUST A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT WE CAME UP WITH. SO WE SHOULD ALL TREAT IT LIKE NOT A BIG DEAL.

>> YEAH, BUT --

>> BUT IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN SCHOOL, YOU ONLY LEARN AT A CERTAIN PLACE. THAT'S NOT WHAT SCHOOL IS DOING, IT TEACHES YOU 2 PLUS 2 IS PLUS IS 4.

>> THEY'RE BREEDING SHEEP. THERE'S SOMETHING IN THERE, YOU'RE LIKE OKAY, I GET IT, THE ORIGINAL THOUGHT IS IMPORTANT, ORIGINAL THOUGHT IS ALSO EASIER WHEN YOU GO UP A MILLIONAIRE, WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO COLLEGE AND GET A NORMAL JOB LIKE NORMAL PEOPLE.

>> THEIR COMMENTS GET TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT A LOT. I THINK WHAT THEY WERE SAYING IS THEY DIDN'T FEEL CHALLENGED ENOUGH.

>> AND SO WILLOW IS WRITING HER OWN BOOKS BECAUSE SHE FELT LIKE SHE HAD READ PRETTY MUCH EVERY BOOK THERE WAS TO READ IN SCHOOL.

>> SO CRAZY. BUT THAT'S -- SHE PROBABLY DIDN'T READ EVERY BOOK. DID SHE READ THE ODYSSEY --

>> SHE'S LIKE BELLE FROM BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.

>> STRAIGHT UP BELLE. WHAT I WANT TO DO ON MY 50th, I HAD A FORMER BOSS WHO RAN A MARATHON ON HER 50th. AND SHE WAS INCREDIBLY IN SHAPE. I WANT TO HAVE A BIG PARTY AND DO MINIMAL WORK AS POSSIBLE.

>> GET DRUNK.

>> JUST DRINK AND HAVE A BIG PARTY.

>> THE MARATHON THING MAKES SENSE. I'M STILL ACTIVE AND STILL DOING IT. IT'S NOT AS DANGEROUS AS BUNGEE. I DON'T WANT TO DO THAT.

>> YOU WANT TO DO THAT?

>> I WANTED TO GO SKY DIVING AND HAVEN'T DONE IT YET. MAYBE I'LL JUST WAIT UNTIL 50.

>> I HAD THE WORST EXPERIENCE WHERE I WAS READY TO GO SKY DIVING. IT WAS -- FORD WAS PAYING FOR IT. I WAS SO EXCITED. I SPENT THE ENTIRE DAY SITTING THERE WAITING FOR -- ALL SUITED UP, READY TO GO AND THEY'RE LIKE, OH, LAST MINUTE, THEY'RE LIKE, THERE'S CLOUDS. YOU CAN'T GO. AND I WAS LIKE, I DON'T CARE. THROW ME OUT THERE WHEN THERE'S CLOUDS. SOUNDS BETTER.

>> I HAD TO GO ONCE AND A GUY CANCELLED BECAUSE OF WEATHER.

>> IT'S A ONCE IN A LIFETIME -- I'M NOT GOING TO ATTEMPT TWICE. IF IT DOESN'T WORK OUT --

>> YOU TAKE THAT AS A SIGN.

>> WALK AWAY FROM THE PLANE. WILL SMITH BELIEVES IF YOU HAVE FEAR, YOU SHOULD CONQUER IT.

>> YES.

>> I DO LIKE THAT. IT'S A COOL PHILOSOPHY MOTIVATED BY FEAR. THAT'S A REALLY COOL THING. I RESPECT THAT ABOUT HIM A LOT.

>> DEFINITELY.

>> A DIFFERENT MESSAGE CAME FROM K POP BAND BTS AS THEY STOOD BEFORE THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO ADVOCATE FOR SELF-LOVE AMONGST THE GLOBAL YOUTH. IT WAS PART OF THE CAMPAIGN WITH UNICEF ENTITLED “LOVE MYSELF.” ONE OF THE BTS MEMBERS ADDRESSED THE ASSEMBLY STATING NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, WHERE YOU'RE FROM, YOUR SKIN COLOR OR GENDER IDENTITY, SPEAK YOURSELF, FIND YOUR NAME, FIND YOUR VOICE BY SPEAKING YOURSELF.

>> WHEN YOU WERE READING THAT, IT MADE ME THINK OF BACKSTREET BOYS, I DON'T CARE WHO YOU ARE, WHERE YOU'RE FROM.

>> YOU'RE SAYING BTS IS NOT THE FIRST?

>> BOY BANDS ARE ALL THE SAME, I'M JUST SAYING.

>> OH.

>> TROLLED BY A LEGION OF K POP PEOPLE. I LOVE BTS, LIKE ME.

>> NO, I LIKE BTS. BUT BOY BANDS, THEY SHOULD SHARE GOOD POSITIVE MESSAGES. THEY HAVE ALL THESE LOVING FANS AND THEY'RE GIVING IT BACK TO THEM. THAT'S SORT OF WHAT I'M SAYING. DON'T CONFORM.

>> RUTHLESS.

>> THEY'RE TAKING IT ONE STEP FURTHER. OBVIOUSLY, THEY HAVE GREAT MESSAGES AND I FEEL EMPOWERED WHEN I LISTEN TO THEIR MUSIC. BUT NOW THEY HAVE A FUND WITH UNICEF AND THEY'RE WORKING WITH THE U.N. AND ACTUALLY ACTING ON IT.

>> YOU CAN TAKE THE STORY AND TREAT IT LIKE IT WAS A JOKE. IT'S EASY TO TROLL IT. WHEN I WATCH THE VIDEO OF THIS WHOLE SPEECH, I ACTUALLY FELT REALLY TOUCHED AND I GOT EMOTIONAL AND I THOUGHT IT WAS BEAUTIFUL. YOU HAVE THIS IMAGERY ABOUT HOW, YOU KNOW, ONCE HE WAS LIKE 9 YEARS OLD HE STARTED REALLY CARING TOO MUCH ABOUT WHAT WE'RE PEOPLE THOUGHT ABOUT HIM. HE SAID HIS EYES CLOSED AND HE LOST HIS NAME. AND I'M LIKE, THAT'S BEAUTIFUL. AND I DON'T THINK WE REALIZE HOW MUCH OF OURSELVES WE ACTUALLY LOSE WHEN WE CARE TOO MUCH ABOUT HOW WE'RE PERCEIVED BY OTHERS AND PLEASING THEM. AND HONESTLY, FOR A BOY BAND AS SUCCESSFUL AS BTS TO GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO SEND THESE IMPORTANT MESSAGES, IT IS SUPER IMPACTFUL. IT WILL HELP SO MANY PEOPLE. AND NOT JUST YOUNG PEOPLE. I THINK OLD PEOPLE SHOULD START PAYING ATTENTION TO THIS MESSAGING. OLD PEOPLE ARE JUST AS FUCKED UP AS YOUNG PEOPLE.

>> THEY'RE ALL YOUNG GUYS. SOMETIMES THAT'S HARD TO HANDLE. I FEEL LIKE MAKING MOVES LIKE THIS AND MAKING SURE THEIR INFLUENCE IS ACTUALLY DOING SOME GOOD PROBABLY FEELS GOOD TO THEM TOO, THAT THEY'RE NOT JUST THIS BOY BAND SINGING SONGS. THEY'RE ACTUALLY CONNECTING WITH THEIR FANS AND IMPROVING THE GENERATION, BASICALLY.

>> IT'S DIFFERENT BECAUSE YOU SEE SO MANY BOY BANDS IN THE PAST, PEOPLE JUST FOLLOW THEM BECAUSE THEY'RE HOT AND THEIR MUSIC'S GOOD AND PEOPLE ARE OBSESSED. I THINK THAT'S A HUGE POINT.

>> YEAH, PEOPLE LOVE THEM BECAUSE THEY'RE MAKING THEM LOVE THEMSELVES.

>> YEAH.

>> AND I ACTUALLY THINK THE CELEBRITIES WHO HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH THE U.N. PLAY A PART IN WHATEVER MESSAGES THEY WANT TO SPREAD AND ACTUALLY ARE SELECTED FOR A REASON. ANGELINA JOLIE WAS -- FOR REFUGEES AND WHATEVER, EMMA WATSON FOR UNICEF, OR U.N./GOOD WILL AMBASSADOR. THEY ARE INFLUENTIAL FIGURES AROUND THE WORLD AND IT HELPS THE U.N. TO CONNECT TO PEOPLE THAT PERHAPS WOULDN'T PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT'S HAPPENING, WHAT THEY'RE DOING ALSO, AND TO GET THE MESSAGE OUT. I THINK IT'S GREAT.

>> IT'S NICE WHEN THEY FOLLOW THROUGH. THEY DO THESE BIG FLASHY PRESS CONFERENCES AND THEN THEY OVERGENERALIZE REALLY IMPORTANT ISSUES, AND NOTHING ACTUALLY GETS DONE. THE U.N. IS SORT OF KNOWN FOR THAT FROM TIME TO TIME. THERE'S NO ACTION BEHIND IT. I HOPE THIS IS SOMETHING THEY CONTINUE TO DO AND THEY CONTINUE TO SPEAK OUT AS THEY TRAVEL AROUND THE GLOBE, SHARE THIS MESSAGE AND IT NOT JUST BE THIS ONE EVENT AT THE U.N.

>> ONE GOOD THING I FEEL LIKE A LOT OF CELEBRITIES ARE PICKED FOR SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGNS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. BUT THE CELEBRITIES AT THE U.N. DOES CONNECT WITH, THEY KIND OF -- THEY LIVE THESE MESSAGES, IF THAT MAKES SENSE.

>> YEAH.

>> AND APPARENTLY BTS, THERE HAS BEEN A CAUSE OF THEIRS SINCE THEY STARTED. THEY'VE ALSO BEEN VERY AWARE OF THE MUSIC THEY'RE CREATING, THE MESSAGE THAT THEY'RE SPREADING. SO --

>> YEAH.

>> MORE POWER TO THEM.

>> YEAH.

>> BUT ALSO, PRESIDENT TRUMP TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRY A STAND-UP ROUTINE. DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THAT IS THIS.

>> WAS THAT IT WAS?

>> EXCUSES NOW, HE MADE A SPEECH AND HE SAID THAT NO ADMINISTRATION IN HISTORY HAS DONE MORE FOR THE UNITED STATES THAN HIS ADMINISTRATION, WHICH DREW A LAUGH, THEN HE SAID WASN'T EXPECTING THAT AND IT DREW EVEN MORE LAUGHS. AFTER THAT HE SAID HE'S JOKING AND NIKKI HALEY IS SAYING ACTUALLY THEY'RE LAUGHING HOW MUCH THEY RESPECT HIS HONESTY. IT'S A GREAT, GREAT TRUMP MOMENT. FOR THE FIRST TIME I ACTUALLY AGREE WITH HIM. I WISH I DIDN'T HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO WASN'T THE LAUGHING STOCK OF THE WORLD. HE SAID THAT ABOUT OBAMA, IS ALL COMES BACK AROUND.

>> I LOVE WHEN THE U.N. IS MAKING NEWS. FOR WEIRD REASONS.

>> WEIRD REASONS. CAN WE TALK ABOUT GLOBAL FAMINE AND WOMEN'S RIGHTS AROUND THE WORLD?

>> I WISH WE COULD. I WISH WE COULD.

>> ANYWAY, FROM TRUMP OVER TO SUPERMODELS, MODEL ASHLEY GRAHAM HAS DEBUTED A NEW BODY INCLUSIVE COLLECTION. IT'S NOT ONLY SEXY, BUT ALSO AFFORDABLE. CREATED WITH UK BRAND PRETTY LITTLE THING TO HELP WOMEN OF ALL SIZES FIND FUN IN EFFORTLESS, ON FRIEND STYLES.

>> WHOO!

>> I LOVE HER.

>> YEAH.

>> I LOVE HER. AND I LOVE THIS BECAUSE PRETTY LITTLE THING IS LIKE ONE OF THOSE KITSCHY INSTAGRAMS. I THINK OF THEM AS THOSE TINY LITTLE GIRLS. I PROBABLY CAN'T WEAR WHAT YOU'RE BEARING. NOW THAT I SEE ASHLEY GRAHAM IN IT, I'M LIKE YES, GIRL.

>> SHE'S DONE SO MUCH FOR BODY POSITIVITY. IT'S A REALLY SMART BUSINESS MOVE FOR HER. DO YOU KNOW WHAT FASHIONOVA IS, IT REALLY CATERS TO WOMEN OF COLOR, WOMEN WITH CURVIER BODIES AND KIND OF SEXY STYLES. IT HAS BLOWN UP. IT'S WORTH A BILLION DOLLARS NOW. AND THEY'RE REALLY THE ONLY ONES REALLY TRULY CATERING TO THAT MARKET. TO SEE HER STEP IN AS A BUSINESSWOMAN AND TAKE CONTROL, I THINK SHE'LL MAKE SOME FAST MONEY.

>> ONE THING SHE SAID ON INSTAGRAM, I LOVED, SHE TALKED ABOUT HOW IT'S ABOUT BEING SIZE INCLUSIVE, NOT LIKE THEY'RE COMING OUT WITH A PLUS SIZE COLLECTION. I KNOW PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENT OPINIONS ON THAT, WHETHER THAT MATTERS OR NOT BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE CALL IT PLUS SIZE, I DON'T CARE, THAT'S WHAT IT IS, BUT I LOVE THAT IT'S JUST LIKE FOR EVERYBODY.

>> IT'S SO NICE.

>> AND IT'S RARE BECAUSE WOMEN'S SIZING SUCKS.

>> IT'S SO INCONSISTENT. EVERYWHERE YOU GO, SOME PLACES I'M A SIZE 8, AND OTHERS I'M A SIZE 10. AND I'M LIKE, I CAN'T -- THERE'S SOME STORES I CAN'T EVEN GO INTO BECAUSE MY BODY DOES NOT FIT INTO THE SHAPE THEY'RE TRYING TO --

>> MANNEQUIN MODEL.

>> YEAH.

>> WE'RE PRETTY TALL WOMEN TOO. SO IT'S JUST LIKE AN EXTRA STRUGGLE. I HATE TRYING ON CLOTHES. IF THIS IS AN OPTION, I LOVE THAT I CAN HAVE MORE RANGE. WHEN YOU GO INTO STORES IT'S SO LIMITED SOMETIMES.

>> AND ASHLEY GRAHAM IS JUST THE BEST.

>> SHE'S FROM NEBRASKA. THAT’S WHERE I’M FROM.

>> DO YOU GUYS LIKE HAVE --

>> WE DIDN'T KNOW EACH OTHER. WHEN I MEET HER CAN WE BE FRIENDS, BECAUSE GO HUSKERS.

>> SHE HAS TO SAY YES, RIGHT?

>> SHE HAS TO YES. IT'S IN THE BY LAWS.

>> YOU HEAR ABOUT THOSE BLOOD LOYALTY OATHS IN NEBRASKA.

>> IT'S REAL SERIOUS.

>> THEY SIGN EVERYTHING IN CORN, IT'S DEEP, YUP.

>> FROM CORN TO MAGIC— THE FINAL TRAILER OF THE UPCOMING HARRY POTTER PREQUEL AND SPINOFF IS HERE, THE NEW LOOK INTO THE FILM REVEALS BIG SURPRISES LEAVING FANS SPELL BOUND AND COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS TO NOVEMBER 16th WHEN THE FILM HITS THEATERS. LET'S TAKE A LOOK. \M\M

>> A TIME IS COMING WHEN YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO PICK A SIDE.

>> I DON'T DO SIDES.

>> BE SOMETHING.

>> NEVER MET HIM ONCE THAT YOU COULDN'T LAUGH.

>> LET'S TAKE HIM. \M\M

>> THAT'S YOUR BROTHER?

>> I THINK THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN THE BEST -- OF MY LIFE.

>> OOH. LUKAS, GO.

>> I'M REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS MOVIE. IT'S A TWO-PART OF FIVE, TALKED ABOUT BRIEFLY BEFORE. IT'S GOT NAGINI, THE WOMAN WITH A BLOOD CURSE WHO TURNS INTO A SNAKE. WE LEARN HOW SHE BECOMES THE EVIL SNAKE. WHO GETS THE ELDER WAND.

>> 15 MORE SECONDS.

>> I'M REALLY PUMPED FOR THIS. THIS IS GOING TO BE GOOD. I'M NERVOUS, I'M REALLY EXCITED, LET'S MOVE ON.

>> DID THAT GO OVER ANYBODY ELSE'S HEAD? I'M SITTING HERE LIKE WHAT --

>> I LOVE YOUR PASSION FOR THE HARRY POTTER FRANCHISE. IT'S A BIG MOVIE FOR FANS.

>> J.K. ROWLING IS WRITING THE FILMS. IT'S CONNECTING TO THE LARGER POTTER UNIVERSE INVOLVING YOUNG DUMBLEDORE, AND THE GREAT DARK WIZARD GRINDEWALD PLAYED BY JOHNNY DEPP. WE'VE TALKED ABOUT “STAR WARS” AND DISNEY IS SPACING THEM OUT MORE. RELEASING ONE A YEAR. I'M CONCERNED WITH “HARRY POTTER” FATIGUE. I DON'T WANT THAT. BUT THESE FILMS HAVE BEEN SPACED OUT EVERY TWO YEARS, WHICH IS POSSIBLY A LITTLE BETTER.

>> ARE THEY AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL MOVIES?

>> YOU KNOW, ONLY ONE HAS COME OUT.

>> NOT AS GOOD AS PRISONER OF AZKABAN.

>> THAT'S A GOOD MOVIE. THAT'S WHEN HARRY POTTER GOT A LITTLE DARKER. I DON'T THINK IT EVER TOUCHED THE EMOTIONAL LEVEL THE ORIGINAL FILMS GOT TO. THESE ARE NOT ORIGINAL. THEY ARE SPINOFFS. BUT WE'LL SEE.

>> ALSO, MAYBE PEOPLE ARE ATTACHED TO THE BOOKS. SO WITH SOMETHING LIKE THIS, IT'S A SHOT IN THE DARK BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE SO OBSESSED WITH HARRY POTTER FROM THE BOOKS THAT IT'S LIKE HOW LONG --

>> IN THE DARK AFTER AN $8 BILLION FRANCHISE. SHOT IN THE DARK. IS THIS GOING TO WORK? THEY BUILT A CASTLE IN FLORIDA. BUT I -- THE STORY IS --

>> YES.

>> BUT THE FACT THAT SHE IS WRITING THESE FILMS KIND OF -- THEY'RE PROBABLY PAYING HER A TON OF MONEY.

>> PEOPLE STAN HER --

>> THEY TRUST HER. THIS IS PART OF THE CANON OF HARRY POTTER.

>> I'M A FANTASY FAN. THIS SEEMS LIKE SOMETHING I WOULD BE INTO. BUT I DIDN'T HEAR ANY HYPE FOR IT, NONE OF MY FRIENDS WERE TALKING ABOUT. SO I AM KIND OF WONDERING IF IT'S WORTH IT. YOU SEEM TO LIKE THE FIRST ONE. YOU NEVER BROUGHT IT UP TO ME IN CONVERSATIONS. I'M LIKE STILL -- THE ONLY THING I HEARD ABOUT THIS, AND I WAS SHOCKED TO SEE JOHNNY DEPP IN THIS NEW MOVIE, WAS PEOPLE ON SOCIAL MEDIA BEING LIKE DO NOT PUT JOHNNY IN THIS MOVIE BECAUSE OF ALL OF HIS PERSONAL DRAMA. SO I'M JUST SHOCKED. ARE THEY GOING TO KEEP HIM FOR ALL FIVE MOVIES? THAT SEEMS LIKE A CHOICE. AND I THINK IT MIGHT AFFECT, YOU KNOW, VIEWERSHIP.

>> I ACTUALLY AGREE. I JUST FELT LIKE, YOU KNOW, HARRY POTTER FILMS, THEY CAST REALLY WELL-KNOWN BRITISH ACTORS, BUT NOT HOLLYWOOD ACTORS. LORD OF THE RINGS WAS THE SAME WITH. GOOD ACTORS, BUT NOT FAMOUS. I DON'T THINK THIS SERIES NEEDS FAMOUS ACTORS. WHEN THEY CAST JOHNNY DEPP, THAT WAS UNNECESSARY TO PUT HIM THERE. EVEN JUDE LAW AS DUMBLEDORE. CAN I DETACH HIM FROM THE MOVIE I WANT TO LOVE?

>> THAT'S THE PROBLEM. EVERY MOVIE JOHNNY DEPP GOES INTO, HE IS PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, CAPTAIN JACK. HE IS ALL THESE OTHER THINGS. IT'S HARD FOR ME TO DETACH AND MAKE A NEW ORIGINAL CHARACTER. HE ALSO OVERACTS IN THESE ROLES.

>> MOST OF THE CONTROVERSY SURROUNDING HIM AND THE -- WHATEVER. BUT YEAH, NO, I AGREE WITH YOU. I THINK INTERESTING, TOO, WITH HARRY POTTER, FANTASY, YOU HAVE "GAME OF THRONES," A DARK, KIND OF GRITTY, MORE ADULT FANTASY WITH DRAGONS, BUT ALSO THERE'S A LOT OF NUDITY AND THERE'S LIKE MOTION AND SEX AND ALL THIS STUFF. HARRY POTTER IS NOT THAT. SO MAYBE, YOU KNOW, FANTASY COULD BE GOING A DIFFERENT WAY. SO WE'LL SEE. IT'S GOING TO BE A TEST.

>> YEAH.

>> I'M TAKING KERRY WITH ME BECAUSE SHE LOVES FANTASY MOVIES SO MUCH.

>> I LOVE DRAGONS AND THINGS.

>> THIS MORNING KERRY WAS LIKE I DON'T CARE ABOUT DRAGONS, WHY DO THEY PUT DRAGONS IN "GAME OF THRONES".

>> I DON'T GET IT. I'M THE ONLY PERSON SITTING HERE, I HAVEN'T EVEN WATCHED "GAME OF THRONES," I KNOW I'M A FRAUD.

>> YEAH.

>> YOU'RE NOT A FRAUD.

>> BUT I CAN'T GET ON THE DRAGON BANDWAGON.

>> IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT DRAGONS.

>> DRAGONS SHOW UP.

>> THAT'S ALL I HAVE --

>> YEAH, THERE'S SO MUCH MORE. I PROMISE THERE'S MORE. THE DRAGONS ARE SIDE CHARACTERS. THEY HAVE ZERO LINES. HONESTLY, I THINK THEY SHOULD HAVE MORE LINES. I THINK THEY SHOULD HAVE THEIR OWN STORY LINES.

>> WHAT'S THAT SHOW WITH THE TALKING DRAGONS?

>> "DRAGON TALES".

>> I MIGHT TAKE IT BACK. BECAUSE I FREAKING LOVE "DRAGON TALES."

>> YOU'RE A FAN. IF YOU WANT A DRAGON WITH TWO HEADS, AND THEY WERE BROTHER AND SISTER. SO YOU WANT TO TALK TO ME ABOUT FANTASY.

>> UH-OH.

>> YEAH, AND ALSO, I JUST CAN'T -- YOU CAN'T EVEN HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT THESE PEOPLE BECAUSE I DON'T -- LIKE, WHAT ARE THEIR NAMES?

>> OKAY, OKAY, OKAY. FANTASY IS OUT OF THIS WORLD TO -- BUT TO A NEW WORLD THAT TEACHES YOU MORE ABOUT YOURSELF AND THE WORLD YOU'RE LIVING IN, TO EXAMINE LIFE IN A NEW WAY, WITH MAGIC AND WIZARDS AND BATTLES.

>> YEAH. IT'S ESCAPISM.

>> I NEED TO ESCAPE. I NEED TO -- I NEED IT. I NEED TO ESCAPE.

>> HE WAS JUST SCROLLING THROUGH HIS TWITTER FEED THIS MORNING. HE NEEDS IT.

>> POLITICS, POLITICS, POLITICS.

>> FANTASTIC BEASTS, I HATE YOU.

>> WELL, NO ONE ESCAPE JUST YET. BECAUSE IT'S TIME FOR OUR GUEST ROSS ELLIS IS THE FOUNDER AND CEO OF STOMP OUT BULLYING, AN ORGANIZATION THAT WORKS TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BULLYING, CYBERBULLYING AND OTHER FORMS OF DISCRIMINATION. UNDER MS. ELLIS' RELATIONSHIP STOMP OUT BULLYING HAS HELPED OVER 5 MILLION YOUTHS IN RESOLVING BULLYING SITUATIONS. IT'S ESTABLISHED A 24/7 HELP CHAT LINE FOR YOUTHS WHO HAVE BEEN BULLIED AND ARE AT RISK FOR SUICIDE. LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT A VIDEO THAT CHRONICLES SOME OF HER MANY ACCOMPLISHMENTS.

>> THANK YOU ALL FOR COMING. IT'S A PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU ALL HERE TO HELP US CELEBRATE OUR 12th ANNIVERSARY. THE MISSION TO STOMP OUT BULLYING IS TO EDUCATE CHILDREN, KIDS AND TEENS, TO CREATE AWARENESS, REALLY CHANGE THE CULTURE. EMPIRE STATE REALTY TRUST WHO HAS LONG SUPPORTED OUR WORK TO END BULLYING, CYBERBULLYING AND TO CHANGE THE CULTURE. FOR OUR 12th ANNIVERSARY, THEY LIT THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING BLUE.

>> I THINK USING THE ASSET OF THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING AUTOMATICALLY CREATES AWARENESS BECAUSE WE ARE ILLUMINATING THE ENTIRE SKYLINE.

>> OUR SECOND AWARD HONORS CAST OF TONY AWARD WINNING MUSICAL “DEAR EVAN HANSEN,” THE SHOW'S MESSAGE OF “YOU WILL BE FOUND” IS SO PROFOUND FOR ALL THOSE YOUTHS WHO FEEL THEY DON'T FIT IN.

>> CONTINUE TO SPREAD THE MESSAGE AND CONTINUE TO EMPOWER PEOPLE. AND RESURRECT SOMETHING THAT'S INSIDE OF THEM THAT'S SPECIAL.

>> EVERYONE PLEASE GIVE A WARM BUILD BRUNCH WELCOME TO ROSS ELLIS.

>> THANK YOU.

>> WOW, SO 13 YEARS, THAT IS A HUGE, HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT. COULD YOU JUST TELL US, LIKE 13 YEARS AGO, WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL INSPIRATION FOR THIS?

>> I HAD NO PLANS FOR THIS, NONE. I HAVE A CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION ORGANIZATION AND ALL THE SUDDEN I STARTED HEARING RUMBLINGS ABOUT BULLYING AND CYBERBULLYING. IT DIDN'T HAVE A NAME. WE BETTER PUT IT ON THE WEBSITE. TWO DAYS LATER THE WEBSITE CRASHED. I KNEW WE WERE ON TO SOMETHING. WE FIXED THE WEBSITE. AND 10 MILLION PEOPLE WHO WOULD VISIT OUR WEBSITE AND ALL THE CELEBRITIES THAT HAVE HELPED US AND EVERYONE, IT'S BEEN AMAZING.

>> DO YOU GET FEEDBACK FROM SOME OF YOUR TEENS OR ANYBODY? WHAT ARE STORIES THAT HAVE REALLY TOUCHED YOU?

>> YOU KNOW, IT'S -- SOME -- ALWAYS THE ONES WHO ARE AT RISK FOR SUICIDE. THAT IS THE WORST. AND WHEN THEY READ ABOUT IT ONLINE, THEY GET MORE EXCITED AND THEY'RE LIKE, I WANT TO DO THIS BECAUSE MY BULLYING WILL END. THEN I SAY TO THEM, OR PEOPLE SAY TO THEM, IT WON'T END. YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THIS IS ABOUT. AND THE SEVERITY OF IT. SO WE REALLY -- WE REACH OUT TO SO MANY KIDS. IT'S BEEN SO WONDERFUL.

>> OVER 13 YEARS I BET YOU'VE SEEN HOW IT'S EVOLVED IN SO MANY WAYS FOR GOOD AND BAD WITH TECHNOLOGY. CAN YOU POINT TO SOME OF THE OF COURSE NEGATIVES THAT HAS HAPPENED OVER 13 YEARS, ALSO SOME POSITIVES THAT COME OUT OF TECHNOLOGY AND ALL THESE DIFFERENT --

>> RIGHT. I MEAN, THE THING IS THAT WITH CYBERBULLYING, YOU'RE HIDDEN. EVERYTHING IS SILENT AND IT'S HIDDEN. AND SO YOU CAN BE JOHN DOE AND SOMEONE WILL THINK YOU'RE JOHN DOE, BUT YOU'RE REALLY NOT, YOU'RE A 50-YEAR-OLD MAN TALKING TO A TEENAGE GIRL OR YOU'RE A GIRL FROM YOUR SCHOOL WHO KEEPS ON SAYING YOU BETTER GO KILL YOURSELF. PLEASE, IF ANY OF YOU ARE LISTENING, DON'T LISTEN TO THAT.

>> IT'S -- I DON'T KNOW WHY ANYONE WOULD LISTEN TO THAT WHEN SOMEONE SAYS GO KILL YOURSELF.

>> ARE THERE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS YOU'VE SEEN THAT ARE MORE HURTFUL THAN OTHERS OR YOU SEE MORE TROLLING?

>> YEAH, SOME. I MEAN, TUMBLER IS NOT A GREAT ONE, ASK FM, DON'T KNOW IF THEY'RE STILL AROUND ANYMORE. BUT I THINK THEY ALL HAVE THEIR HIDDEN DANGERS AND KIDS NEED TO BE REALLY SAVVY ABOUT BEING ON SOCIAL MEDIA, WHO THEY'RE TALKING TO, IF THEY SEE A NEGATIVE POST, DELETE IT AND BLOCK IT. WE HAVE A PROGRAM, OUR SECOND YEAR, NOVEMBER 7th, AND IT'S NATIONAL BLOCK IT OUT DAY. WE'RE TELLING KIDS BLOCK IT OUT. TELL YOUR FRIENDS TO BLOCK IT OUT, START A CHAIN REACTION SO THAT EVERYONE BLOCKS IT OUT. AND LAST YEAR WE REACHED 250 MILLION PEOPLE.

>> WOW.

>> WOW.

>> AND THAT WAS THE FIRST YEAR WE DID THAT.

>> IT'S SO CRAZY YOU EVEN SAY CYBERBULLYING DIDN'T HAVE A NAME WHEN YOU FIRST STARTED.

>> IT DIDN'T.

>> THAT'S THE FIRST THING I THINK OF NOW. THEN I ALSO FORGET ABOUT BULLYING THAT'S TAKING PLACE IN SCHOOLS STILL. HOW DO YOU THINK MAYBE CYBERBULLYING, DOES IT FUEL BULLYING IN SCHOOLS? DO PEOPLE START BEHIND THE SCREEN?

>> IT'S TOTALLY SEPARATE. IT REALLY IS. THE WEIRDEST THING CAN HAPPEN IN SCHOOL. YOU CAN BE WALKING DOWN THE HALL, YOUR BEST FRIEND CAN COME OVER TO YOU AND JUST SAY SOMETHING HORRIBLE. WE HAD A TEEN AMBASSADOR WHO THAT HAPPENED TO WHERE HIS BEST FRIEND BROKE HIS ARM.

>> WHOA.

>> WHAT?

>> YEAH, IT'S --

>> NOT A GREAT BEST FRIEND.

>> YOU CAN'T MAKE THAT STUFF UP. SO YOU REALLY HAVE TO BE DILIGENT. WHAT WE'RE SAYING TO KIDS IS IF YOU ARE BEING BULLIED IN PERSON, USE COMEBACKS. DON'T IGNORE IT. THAT'S NOT GOING TO HELP. IF YOU USE COMEBACKS LIKE SOMEONE WILL LOOK AT ME AND SAY, OH, YOU'RE FAT, I'LL LOOK AT THEM AND SAY, YEAH, WHATEVER, I WALK AWAY, I DON'T HAVE A CONVERSATION. I'VE TAKEN AWAY THE BULLY'S POWER, AND I'M NOW EMPOWERED. SO WE'RE TEACHING THEM THE COMEBACKS AND THEN TO DELETE AND BLOCK ON INTERNET AND SOCIAL MEDIA. BUT ALSO IF IT'S SOMETHING REALLY BAD, TELL AN ADULT. IT'S SO IMPORTANT BECAUSE IF YOU'RE BEING THREATENED, THAT'S CRITICAL.

>> ABSOLUTELY.

>> YEAH.

>> WE'VE SEEN A LOT OF CELEBRITIES GET BULLIED THESE LAST COUPLE YEARS. WE TALK ABOUT THAT ON THE SHOW A LOT, HOW THEY REACT TO IT. WE'VE SEEN PEOPLE DELETE THEIR INSTAGRAMS AND STUFF AND THEN WE SEE OTHER PEOPLE, LIKE JONATHAN FROM “QUEER EYE,” WHO BUCKLES DOWN AND GOES IN. DO YOU THINK IT'S BETTER TO COMMENT BACK, OR TURN OFF YOUR COMMENTS INSTEAD OF DEACTIVATING?

>> I THINK NOT ANSWERING IS THE BEST THING. I KNOW A LOT OF CELEBRITIES WHO ARE PUBLIC SHAMED AND THEY SPEAK UP. BUT HONESTLY, THESE TROLLS OUT THERE DON'T CARE.

>> RIGHT.

>> SO FOR ME, I WOULD TELL THEM, DON'T ANSWER. BUT EVEN SOME OF OUR CELEBRITIES ANSWER.

>> YEAH.

>> YOU KNOW, BECAUSE IT'S A TERRIBLE THING TO BE PUBLICLY SHAMED.

>> YEAH.

>> SO, YOU KNOW.

>> IT'S HARD ON SOCIAL MEDIA WHEN SOMEBODY WRITES A LIE ABOUT YOU, IT'S HARD NOT TO DIVE AND BE LIKE HOW DARE YOU SAY THAT ABOUT ME. I'VE KNOWN THE ONES WHO DON'T ENGAGE WITH THAT, THEY DO HAVE THE POWER.

>> THAT'S IT. YOU'RE EMPOWERED. YOU'RE A WINNER. YOU KNOW? NO ONE CAN TAKE THAT AWAY FROM YOU. AND THIS IS WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO TEACH THE KIDS. WE'RE VERY FORTUNATE IN THAT WE WORK WITH CELEBRITIES WHO GO TO SCHOOLS WITH US. WE HAVE A PROGRAM WITH THE NEW YORK JETS. WE'RE ACTUALLY LIGHTING THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING BLUE ON OCTOBER 2nd, WHICH IS SO EXCITING.

>> SO COOL.

>> I KNOW. FOR FOUR YEARS ALREADY THEY HAD BEEN OUR PARTNER AND IT'S BEEN AMAZING. BUT WE HAVE A LOT OF CELEBRITIES THAT WORK WITH US TO HELP US GET THE MESSAGE OUT. AND THAT HELPS.

>> SO IT'S ONE THING TO BLOCK OR TO WALK AWAY. BUT THOSE THINGS STILL STAY WITH YOU AND CAN BE HURTFUL.

>> OF COURSE.

>> WHAT ARE YOUR TIPS FOR KIDS AND TEENS TO JUST STAY POSITIVE OR TO MAKE SURE THEY'RE STAYING UPLIFTED?

>> BE WITH FRIENDS WHO ARE POSITIVE, HANG OUT AT PLACES THAT ARE POSITIVE, GO TO OUR WEBSITE, OTHER WEBSITES. AND LISTEN TO THE CELEBRITIES WHO SEND OUT POSITIVE MESSAGES BECAUSE THERE ARE A LOT THAT DO.

>> I FIND THINGS LIKE JOURNALING AND MEDITATING, THOSE ARE THINGS I'VE DONE THROUGH THE YEARS WHEN I'M FEELING ANXIOUS OR STRESSED AND I FEEL LIKE KIDS ARE LIKE, OH, THAT'S NOT COOL. BUT WRITING DOWN YOUR FEELINGS IS GOOD.

>> IT'S GREAT HEAD SPACE. I DO JOURNAL. I HAVE A GRATITUDE JOURNAL. AND EVERY DAY I WRITE AT LEAST ONE THING I'M GRATEFUL FOR.

>> THAT'S HUGE.

>> IF WE COULD GET KIDS TO DO THAT, THAT WOULD BE WONDERFUL.

>> YEAH.

>> THE ONE THING I'VE ALSO SEEN IS I FEEL LIKE IN MEDIA THIS CONVERSATION IS BEING PORTRAYED LIKE BULLYING IS ALL OVER AND YOU SEE IT IN PLOTLINES AND THINGS LIKE THAT. HOW DO YOU THINK IT'S HELPING OR EVEN HURTING TO HAVE IT DISPLAYED EVERYWHERE?

>> SOMETIMES IT HURTS AND SOMETIMES IT HELPS. WHEN A SUICIDE IS REPORTED, AND THEY -- THE MEDIA STARTS REPORTING HOW, HOW THEY DID IT, I HAVE TOLD MANY PEOPLE DON'T DO THAT BECAUSE KIDS COPY IT. SO THAT'S NOT A GOOD THING TO DO. BUT IF YOU SHOW LIKE OUR VIDEO OR OTHER PEOPLE'S VIDEOS THAT ARE REALLY IN THE SPACE THAT ARE DOING GOOD WORK, IT JUST SENDS SUCH A POSITIVE MESSAGE. I MEAN, KIDS COME TO US. WE'RE HELPING OVER 5 MILLION KIDS. THEY KNOW THAT WE CAN HELP THEM AND WE WILL ALWAYS BE THERE FOR THEM.

>> DO YOU EVEN THINK FICTIONAL PLOT LINES ABOUT IT ARE ACCURATE, LIKE "13 REASONS WHY".

>> I'M NOT A FAN OF "13 REASONS WHY".

>> WHY?

>> IT'S PAINFUL TO WATCH. YOU HAVE A SUICIDE. YOU HAVE RAPES, DRINKING AND DRUGS AND ALL OF THAT. IF I HAD A KID, I WOULDN'T WANT MY KID WATCHING ALL THAT. THE NEW ONE "INSATIABLE," I STOPPED AFTER THREE EPISODES.

>> OKAY.

>> YOU DON'T WANT YOUR KIDS WATCHING THAT STUFF.

>> WHAT ABOUT THE FILM "EIGHTH GRADE".

>> I HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET. I HEARD IT'S WONDERFUL.

>> IT IS WONDERFUL. GOING THROUGH MIDDLE SCHOOL, I DIDN'T HAVE INSTAGRAM AND TWITTER AND FACEBOOK. HOW INSECURITY BUILDS UP. WE WERE TALKING ABOUT BEFORE AND HOW THAT LEADS TO BULLYING AND STUFF.

>> I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT.

>> EVERY YEAR, THIS IS OUR 11th YEAR DOING THIS, WE HAVE WORLD DAY OF BULLYING PREVENTION. WE ASK EVERYONE TO WEAR BLUE. I WOULD HAVE BROUGHT YOU T-SHIRTS, BUT WE SOLD OUT.

>> WE'LL WEAR BLUE AT LEAST.

>> EVERYONE WEARS BLUE, AND IT'S GIVING THE KIDS A VOICE TO MAKE THAT THE DAY THAT BULLYING PREVENTION IS HEARD AROUND THE WORLD. WHEN WE SOLD OUT, I WAS LIKE, OH MY GOD, ALL THESE KIDS CAME AND THEY'RE LIKE I WANT A BLUE SHIRT, I WANT A BLUE SHIRT, I'M SORRY, WE SOLD OUT. THEY CAN WEAR THEIR OWN BLUE SHIRTS. IT'S THE SOLIDARITY THAT WORKS.

>> IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, DO SOMETHING SORT OF PHILOSOPHY.

>> EXACTLY.

>> IT ENCOURAGES THAT. YOU HAVE TO BE A WITNESS TO BULLYING.

>> IT'S EXCITING. WE'VE BEEN DOING THAT PART FOR 11 YEARS ALREADY.

>> AMAZING WORK. I LOVE THAT.

>> THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE. AND EVERYONE, MAKE SURE TO BLUE UP ON OCTOBER 1st. AND THANK YOU, KERRY, FOR JOINING US TOO. WE'LL SEE YOU ALL TOMORROW, SAME TIME, SAME TABLE.

>> BYE, GUYS!
