During Charlie Puth’s chat with Maney, he had a message for bullies. “You’ll be sorry!”

Charlie’s a good friend of the show. He did a Zoom with me to talk about his new album “Charlie” out October 7th. We talked about his long fingers, his home remodel and his new song “Left and Right” with Jung Kook from BTS. The thing that I loved our talk this time was when we talked about bullies.

My 4th grade son Dean, had just told me minutes before our scheduled interview with Charlie, that he was a victim of bullying. Apparently he and some other friends went to do some fishing near my neighborhood. When they got there, some middle school kids showed up and started swearing and saying not so nice things. I wanted to get Charlie’s perspective on the topic. It was still on my mind and I knew he would have good perspective for my son and others who are bullied this school year.

Charlie didn’t tell Dean to tell an adult. He didn’t say if you see something you should say something. We all know that much. He came at the whole bullying thing from a fresh and different perspective. He wonders why anyone would chose to be a bully? So what’s Charlie Puth’s message for bullies? “You’ll be sorry!” You’ll be sorry when you the person you bullied is your boss one day. Or maybe you’ll need a favor from that person. What will he or she remember about you? Perfect insight!

Such a great conversation. Check it out!
