Country legend Billy Ray Cyrus gave a big thanks to first lady Melania Trump for meeting with the family of a victim of cyber bullying.

Melania and the family of the victim met together at the White House on Monday. 

As Breitbart reports:

“What an honor to sit [with] The First Lady at the White House,” tweeted Cyrus on Tuesday. “@FLOTUS Your sincerity was truly inspiring. You/your team were so engaged to Channing’s grieving father & brother & brought ideas/strategy to make the world a safer better place for the youth in America.”

The tweet was accompanied by the hashtag, #JusticeForChanning, in reference to 16-year-old Channing Smith, who reportedly committed suicide in September, after he discovered that sexually explicit text messages he had exchanged with another boy from school were posted on social media by his classmates.

 

After learning about Smith’s death, Cyrus had performed at a memorial service for the teenager in Manchester.

“Highlighting online safety is one of my #BeBest priorities,” tweeted Melania Trump. “Yesterday, [Billy Ray Cyrus] introduced me to the Smith family to hear about the tragic loss of their loved one from cyberbullying. Teaching positive online behaviors can ensure a safer future for our children.”
