IF you were ever picked on at school, then you'll know how the cruel nicknames can haunt you for years after.
TikTok star Lily Thompstone is one person who knows ALL about this.
Earlier this year, the 18-year-old, from Manchester, posted a viral video where she revealed cruel bullies had picked on her "paper" lips at school.
The clip opens with a photo of what Lily looked like as a schoolgirl – with natural hair light brown hair and minimal makeup as she smiles for the camera during a meal out.
Giving an example of what bullies said about her, Lily used the vomiting emoji and captioned the photo: "Don't invite her."
The video then jumps to a clip of what Lily looks like now that she's left school – with highlighted hair, long lashes and a fuller pout.

"I got bullied at school for having naturally fuller lips," one replied. "Fish lips = now everyone is paying for them. People will always bully no matter what."
"You look beautiful both ways," another added.
That said, others said the video made them "sad" that Lily felt the need to alter her appearance.
Jumping to her defence, a third wrote: "People bully others into changing and then bully them for changing. It's gross."
