Remember that lightsaber swingin' guy they called the Star Wars Kid?
He was one of the first viral video sensations, one of the first people to get the meme treatment, and one of the first to discover how trolls and cyberbullies can ruin your life with their hateful words.
The Star Wars Kid's real name is Ghyslian Raza, and ever since his private video went viral after classmates uploaded it back in 2003 his life has never been the same, but mostly in a bad way.
Ghyslian was mercilessly mocked, lost all of his friends and says he was told he should “commit suicide” on a daily basis, but he overcame it all and grew up wanting to help others who have been bullied online.
Ghyslian is now an attorney specializing in cyberbullying, an area of law sorely lacking in legislation and legal representation, and he excels in this field because he knows what it's like to have your life ruined by the internet.
