A 13-year-old girl has met one of her rock idols as a result of an anti-bullying video she posted on YouTube, KARE-TV reports.
Chloe McCarty posted the video after being bullied at school over her medical disorder Trichotillomania, which causes her to pull her own hair out.
The music in the video was a solo piece from Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx. Sixx was reportedly so touched by the video that he arranged for the two to meet before the band's concert with Kiss Wednesday night at the Minnesota State Fair.
McCarty is the latest Minnesota teen who has stepped up efforts to make the public aware of bullying in schools. In May, an Edina teen debuted his anti-bullying film "Minnesota Nice? A Documentary on Bullying in Minnesota Public Schools" at a local theater. Edina High School found 18-year-old Alec Fisher's film to be so strong that they were considering on making it part of the school's curriculum.
Most recently, an Osseo teen took to Twitter to begin a national anti-bullying initiative through social media.
On the state level, a state force on bullying has issued a report to Gov. Mark Dayton that recommends Minnesota toughen up its anti-bullying laws.
See the video McCarty made below that grabbed the attention of Sixx, which led to this week's special meeting.
