Brice Lee Opens Up About the Bullying He Endure When He was Younger

In a 2020 interview with Taste of Country, Brice Lee recalled being bullied while growing up. “I went through a time where I was bullied really hard through middle school. A lot of it was mental. I’d get ganged up on because I was sobbing. They knew they had to come like 50 of ‘em. But it was scary.”

Lee Brice stated the bullying encounters inspired his singles Sons and Daughters as well as Lies. “So then, with Sons and Daughters, it was like I could see that happening via social media.”

While speaking about his oldest son, Takoda, and the effects of social media bullying, Lee Brice shared, “He’s just so sweet. He doesn’t understand why people would be mean or rude. He doesn’t comprehend it. It’s not his nature.”

Lee Brice goes on to reveal details about him even being bullied when he was older. “I remember I was opening up for Luke Bryan on the stadium tour. And somebody said something that was completely wrong. And really put a bad message out there about me and about my show. So I tweeted outright at that moment. I said, ‘Look dude, why don’t you come say that to my face. Come see me backstage and we can handle this.”

The critic notably responded to Lee Brice. “So he said, ‘Oh yeah, I’d love to come have a beer backstage.’ I’m like, ‘Nah, brother I’m not along about come here to have a beer.’”
