Miss America stands up to bullies on social media

Miss America is not going to let the haters stop her.

Georgia’s own Betty Cantrell posted a message to Instagram on Thursday encouraging children to stand strong against bullying. 

The post includes a photo of Cantrell surrounded by the words "poor speaker," "not pretty," "average singer"  "too big," "too skinny" and "not smart." At the bottom of the photo are the words “100% unstoppable.”
