ABC’s hit comedy “Modern Family” was honored by GLSEN at the event for portraying a diverse American family, and show star Jesse Tyler Ferguson revealed that antagonization by his childhood classmates reached a fever pitch in eighth grade – forcing the actor to switch schools in order to escape his tormentors.
“I was bullied all through school… It was very difficult — I felt very lonely,” Jesse told Access. “I didn’t have the resources that a lot of people have today. I just kept reminding myself that the world was way bigger than high school… I had my eye on getting out of Albuquerque, New Mexico, I had my eye set on pursuing a career in the arts, and I knew that it was going to take another year of me kind of turning a blind ear to bullies.”
