Michael Elliot "Mike" Epps is an American stand-up comedian, actor, film producer, writer and rapper. He is best known for playing Day-Day Jones in Next Friday and the sequel-to-the-sequel, Friday After Next, and also appearing in The Hangover, as "Black Doug". He was the voice of Boog in Open Season 2 (the sequel to Open Season), but was replaced by Matthew J. Munn in Open Season 3. As of 2010, Epps was the executive producer on a documentary about the life story of a former member of Tupac Shakur's Outlawz, Napoleon: Life of an Outlaw. He is also known for playing L.J. in Resident Evil: Apocalypse and Resident Evil: Extinction in 2004 and 2007 respectively.

Epps says he, like many children, was bullied when he was younger. He even admits to having been the bully at one point or another. Now he is speaking out to help bring bullying in schools to an end.

“I’m living proof that you can make it out of that,” Epps said as he told his audience about his experiences with bullying when he was growing up.

"Bullies are really scared and insecure themselves. They dont know how to be themselves and often want to be your friends so they pick on you because they dont know how to express themselves. I admit that I used to bully too because I was bullied and you have to remember that most bullies just used to be bullied. I think sometimes its as simple as giving the bully a compliment. It sounds crazy but a compliment can make the bully change their mind about you and think that they shouldn't bully someone like you who is willing to be their friend. I just want you all to know that I am just like you and I was just like you so I know what its like to have people jump you and chase you but im here. I made it out. I was poor living on food stamps while getting bullies but I made it and you can too."
