July 2008: Cyberbullied Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato
Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato were the new girls on the Disney block in 2008. Gomez made her Disney debut on Hannah Montana as a competing pop star before getting her own series, and her lifelong best friend Lovato was set for a leading role in the TV movie Camp Rock with the Jonas Brothers. Instead of becoming a unified trio, however, Cyrus fueled rumors of bad blood by posting a video on her YouTube vlog – in which she and dancer Mandy Jiroux mocked and parodied the newcomers. Cyrus and Jiroux later took the video down and apologized.
