Efron Laughs Off Bullying

Hollywood heart-throb ZAC EFRON has discovered the perfect way to stamp out bullying - by laughing at his aggressors.
The High School Musical star has witnessed the effects of bullying first-hand - his younger brother Dylan has been a victim of verbal harassment.
And Efron is determined to beat the taunts, insisting the best way to deal with the issue is to laugh it off.
He says, "I wasn't necessarily the subject of bullying, but I've witnessed it a whole lot. I still do at times in life. It doesn't stop happening at school, it can happen with adults.
"I have a younger brother, Dylan. There have been a couple of times where I've been out with him and someone has said a couple of words to him that were not nice, and I've had words back. Bullying is one thing I hate in human nature.
"Personally if I had to deal with it, it never got to a situation where it could be considered bullying because I would find some clever way around it. I tend to make a joke. I defer everything with laughter. Even when it's blatantly disrespectful, I would just laugh it off, to avoid all confrontation, and I still use that on a daily basis."
