>> exactly right. was there a final straw that finally led to the firing yesterday. >> it was announced last night harvey weinstein was fired last night. >> the board said they're continuing to learn about allegations about what harvey weinstein may have done to women, and i think his firing, by the way, does not really end that question. i think the question we all face now is what was the size and scope of this thing? what really happened in this situation, how come this behavior appears to have continued for decades, did anything including the board of the weinstein company try to stop it. >> that's what i'm curious about. if it had been going on for decades, why didn't the board know that it was allegedly an open see yet in hollywood? >> my colleague megan twohey has been investigating that question very, very hard. one answer to the question is legal settlements. we do know for sure harvey weinstein had women who complain of allegations of

8:15 am
it drives people to suicide. >> it does. charlie, i don't know if you're all aware that we now have a new word in our lexicon which is bullycide, which talks about the people who died by suicide as a result of bullying. and there are recent statistics have talked about how i think it's 20% of teen suicides have been related to bullying issues. and you all might have seen too we're at an all-time high in the last 40 years for young girls and people who die by suicide. >> so what to we do? >> well, with this campaign, what we are advocating is to click with compassion and there's three components of that. the first is thinking about before you post something online, think about what you're clicking. think before you click. what that means is think about the face test. would you say that to someone offline just as we're sitting here, and if not, then don't post it. next to that, re
8:16 am
bullying has the kind of the corn what fuels bullying is shame and public humiliation. so clickbait, which weer're always familiar with is also fueled by those same things so another way to click with compassion is to not click on clickbait that we're seeing so we can contribute to an algorithm which promote as culture of compassion versus a culture of humiliation. >> a large part is on cyber bullying of children. you talk about 40% of american adultings experience some form of cyber bullying as well. how can that be dealt with and is it different with how we deal with children who are bullied online? >> i think with children, of course, one of the areas of focus right now is called digital resilience, but i think that applies to adults as well. where i think there's a slight difference, we see a little bit less
8:17 am
particularly women and members of the lgbtq community experience more online threats and harassment. one of the things and sort of the click with compassion campaign is using your click to support someone who's a target of bullying online. it's very -- i can relate to this from a myriad of ways of even hearing from a stranger to show support to a target can actually really shift the situation and make sure that you don't feel alone, which is -- >> the kindless of strangers really makes a difference at a time like this. you talked about being bullied when you were in the sixth grade, monica. >> yes. >> talk about the difference between sixth grade to what happened to you back in 1998? >> i was lucky because the bullying in a sense in sixth grade was not as bad as many people have it, but it was certainly scarring for me. >> not everybody knew about it. >> not everybody knew about it. that's a really big issue.

internet. there's kind of no parameter how many people are laughing at you. i think what happened later on back in 1998, you know, was -- there was no role model, there was no playbook, no one else had gone through a public shaming online like what i had experienced, and so i was very blessed in terms of having an incredible family and friends, and i also heard from a lot of strangers, so -- which connects really to the other part of the campaign with it, #bestrong emojis which came from this experience i had of having gotten letters from strangers. some you wouldn't want to read on tv, but lot of them were letters of compassion and support and that really helps me through. sometimes that's what got me through the day. >> why should the support of strangers help? you should know you hav

monica. >> thank you, thank you. >> a lot of people pulling for you and wishing you well. why did the kindless of strangers matter so much when you had as you said a good support team. >>? >> you know, i think this comes from -- and this might get a little boo-boo, but i think it comes from -- i think that this kind of comes from our collective cohesiveness, you know, the sort of all-oneness and we are all connected and i know that especially in today's world we tend to focus so much more on our differences, but we really have so much more in common. and when you hear from a stranger there's a reminder that you're a human being and deserve some level of dignity. >> one of the things that's interesting about you and you may have said this in the t.e.d. talk was the idea you with going to insist on a different ending to my story. you were going to change the narrative in terms of where it was going. >> right. i think one of the things which is really important for any
8:20 am
online harassment or cyber bullying. >> or done something embarrassing. >> exactly, exactly. i think it's to know that we can take back our narratives, we can hold onto our narratives and as you said, we can insist of a didn't ending to our story. it's not always easy and it can be scary to step out and do that but i'm incredibly grateful i've been able to do this. >> is that part of what this is about? changing the narrative to your story? >> i think to me the focus is really -- you knowing there were many time over the last two decades when i wasn't sure i would make it, and so i can really relate in a way to how a lot of people are feeling in today's world even though it's for different reasons and now we have social media. so for me this sense of being able to use some of my experiences to help other people is --
