Celebrities including boyband The Wanted have come out in support for a new campaign to stamp out online bullying.

The I Found You hitmakers have thrown their weight behind the LOLz not Trolls initiative by young person’s charity vInspired to help protect their fans from being abused online.

The boys said in a statement, “Through the years we have met a lot of fans, ranging from all ages around the world. It would be horrible to think that these young people are becoming the victims of trolling, or are even trolling themselves.

“We’d like to encourage people to sign up to the Do Something campaign and show that you can make a difference.”

Caroline Flack, who received death threats from One Direction fans over her relationship with Harry Styles, said: “If someone walked up to you in the street and said ‘You fat ugly s**t’, that wouldn’t be cool, right?

“Why should trolling be any different? I pledge never to troll, why don’t you join me?”
