Washington, Feb 14 (ANI): American actor Zac Efron has revealed that he has found a perfect way to get rid of bullying - by laughing at his aggressors.

Efron, who witnessed the effects of bullying first-hand when his younger brother Dylan became a victim of verbal harassment, is determined to beat the taunts and insists the best way is to laugh it off.

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, Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

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, he added. (ANI)
