There’s an interesting twist when it comes to TV, where even our most favorite characters can get caught up in bullying. Yep, those characters we adore for their funny habits, relatable problems, and awesome tales sometimes have to deal with the not-so-nice joke of being bullied in their make-believe worlds.
Will Byers (Stranger Things)
He is a gentle-hearted and creative boy who becomes the target of bullies due to his quiet nature and the mysterious events surrounding him in the Upside Down. However, fans have said Noah Schnapp is the complete opposite of the character he plays in Stanger Things.
Sam Winchester (Supernatural)
Despite his intelligence and loyalty, Sam faces relentless torment due to his perceived weaknesses, often struggling to prove his worth in a world filled with supernatural threats.
Eleven (Stranger Things)
Eleven’s past trauma and unique appearance make her a target for those who fear the unknown, adding to the challenges of her already complex teenage life.
Kurt Hummel (Glee)
Kurt is known for his fashion-forward style and powerful voice, making him a fan favorite. Unfortunately, Kurt’s identity as a gay teenager exposes him to bullying. Many teenagers in Kurt’s position have said they identify with him and, unfortunately, the bullying as well.
Archie Andrews (Riverdale)
Despite his wholesome intentions, Archie’s relationships are constantly tested as he faces bullying from peers and powerful figures in his small, seemingly idyllic town. Archie always tries to take the high road, and unfortunately, this often lands him in a mess.
Hermione Granger (Harry Potter series)
Renowned for her intelligence, Hermione endures mockery from classmates for her dedication to academics. However, dedication to her education often helps the trio move along in the series and helps make others look like fools.
Clay Jensen (13 Reasons Why)
Clay becomes a target of bullying as he seeks answers and grapples with the truth about their shared past. Clay is kind but, at times, very awkward. He is everything that a teenager appears to be, which is why so many fans of the show seem to identify with him and root for him.
Tyrion Lannister (Game of Thrones)
Tyrion’s dwarfism exposes him to ridicule and cruelty from his family and society. However, his wit and wisdom make him a fan favorite on the series.
Aria Montgomery (Pretty Little Liars)
Aria’s individuality attracts both admiration and jealousy, leading to bullying as she navigates the secrets of her tumultuous friendships. Fans have said they identify most with her passion and creative soul, making her seem like she could be friends with anyone.
Steve Harrington (Stranger Things)
Initially, Steve was the stereotypical popular jock, and fans did not like him! Many fans have even said early on in season 1 that they hoped he “was next.” However, Steve’s transformation into a caring protector doesn’t shield him from mockery, yet he evolves into a beloved character who defies expectations.
Rajesh Koothrappali (The Big Bang Theory)
Raj’s selective mutism and quirky personality sometimes make him an easy target for jokes among his friends, highlighting the challenges of social interactions. A fan said of Raj that he is the “nerd” that exists in all of us.
Chandler Bing (Friends)
Chandler’s self-deprecating humor masks his insecurities, stemming from a childhood marked by his parents’ dysfunctional relationship, which becomes a source of teasing. Fans easily identify with him because of his parent’s divorce, which was obviously sensationalized because it was done over Thanksgiving dinner. Still, there’s a little Chandler Bing in all children from divorced parents.
Raven Reyes (The 100)
Gifted with a brilliant mind and resourcefulness, Raven faces adversity and ridicule due to physical injuries and the complexities of surviving in a post-apocalyptic world. She is a fan favorite because she is a main character who is living with a disability and chronic pain but still manages to be “a badass,” said one fan.
Willow Rosenberg (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
A shy and bookish witch, Willow’s journey involves battling her own self-doubt alongside supernatural threats, highlighting her resilience. Fans can’t seem to get enough of Willow for her confidence and the “glow-up” she has a strong witch.
Finn Hudson (Glee)
Finn grapples with bullying as he navigates the challenges of his high school’s social hierarchy and the expectations placed upon him. Finn is a talented athlete and has a strong, powerful voice. He is often bullied because he’s a “jock” who loves singing.
