The story of how former Packers cheerleader Kaitlyn Collins responded to cyber-bullies with a YouTube video is getting attention all over the country. Collins fought back, but that isn't an easy thing to do.
Cyber-bullying is more common and often does more damage than in person bullying. Many victims, especially those in high school don't know how to handle it.
"My advice would be to talk about it with a trusted friend or a trusted adult," says Barbara Dorff, Executive Director of Pupil Services for Green Bay Area Schools.
Don't try to be tough.
"You will have feelings about it, so acknowledge those feelings. And try to talk to yourself and talk to yourself about how I'm really not that way and that's not who I am."
Dorff says you aren't the problem, it's the bully who has the issue.
"Many of the people who are cyber-bullying, and there's been research done, they are bullied themselves."
For Collins, her strength came from family and friends.
"I was able to brush it off because I have such a strong support system and so that's really what helped me," says Collins.
She took a stand and told the cyber-bullies to back down. Now, she's an inspiration for others to do the same.
