She makes a good point.



Storm Keating has called numerous dictionaries out on their definition of the word ‘bully’.

The star took to Instagram to highlight the issue in light of Anti Bullying Week.

She shared screenshot of what many dictionaries use as the definition of the word.

“A person who uses strength or influence to harm or intimidate those who are weaker.”

Explaining her issue with the definition she said: “Bullies aren’t strong and the bullied aren’t weak. This is the current dictionary definition of “bully”.
She then called out numerous well know dictionaries to change the meaning: “These dictionaries need to change their definitions:
@CambridgeWords @OxfordWords @OED@MacDictionary @MerriamWebster@google, Well done @Dictionarycom & @CollinsDictfor agreeing.”
