LeAnn Rimes Gives Us The Finger In New Ad

By: Amanda Crum - June 4, 2013

LeAnn Rimes is part of a new ad campaign against bullying, and the country singer isn’t afraid to be brash about it.

Rimes said last summer that she admitted herself into rehab in order to learn how to “cope” after her husband’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, and her friends began tormenting her over the phone and using social media to bully her. The women have had quite the feud since Rimes married Eddie Cibrian after they began an affair on the set of their Lifetime movie when he was still married to Glanville.

The country star doesn’t seem to have any qualms with showing a little attitude in the new ad, flipping up her middle finger to show she doesn’t tolerate bullying.

“LeAnn’s a great friend of mine and I’ve seen over the years how she’s been bullied in the press, so I asked her right away to be a part of Friend Movement’s anti-bullying campaign,” said Vice President of Brand Development for Friend Movement, Marco Gonzalez. “Her photo is definitely one of our most powerful images! I think her photo and the message behind it will resonate with many around the world who have been bullied.”

Several other celebs have gotten in on the movement, including Rumer Willis and Adam Lambert. The cause was “created to help show positive anti-bully images through art and media”, according to their site.

    That is great that she doesn’t tolerate bullying. Even better that Brandi Glanville doesnt tolerate lying, cheating, homewrecking whores. Leann and her piece of trash Eddie are selfish, horrible people, and hopefully they will spend their lives remembering how they got together. Once a cheater, always a cheater! She needs to stop trying to get on every magazine cover, hoping for redemption or respect from the public, because she is never going to get it

    You are one messed up whench Mandi.
    LeAnn is no homewrecker.
    That marriage was doomed from the moment that slut started airing out Eddie’s personal life with her on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
    All the women who does those shows are whores, and the ones like Brandi who have kids, are even worse role models.
    I guess you are stupid like the rest of society though and support that.
    Stop believing everything you read in the tabloid articles that Brandi Glanville lies in, and get a life.
    You don’t have the right to judge anyone, and will just end up looking stupid.
