Past Teen Choice Awards Winner Bella Thorne is Boycotting This Year’s TCAs

By  | 

Looks like SeaWorld isn’t the only thing Bella Thorne is boycotting.

Though the 20-year-old Disney Channel alum has been to the Teen Choice Awards on multiple occasions and has even been nominated over 10 times — including THREE TIMES this year (once for Choice Drama Movie Actress for her performance in Midnight Sun; once for Choice Movie Ship, also for her performance in Midnight Sun opposite Patrick Schwarzenegger; and once for Choice Drama TV Actress for her performance on Famous in Love) — she has decided NOT to attend the 2018 ceremony.

The young star expressed her distaste in the production, calling it “gross” on Twitter:

She soon clarified, saying:

“The fact we are even voting against each other is …. it f*cks w kids heads like a beauty competition […] I’m #boycottingteenchoice besides it being rigged it’s just f*cked up.”

She then suggested the following:

“Vote for the hottest is so gross
How about smartest?
Or a charity category? How about we hype people up for doing good things not being hot”

Bella, herself, was actually nominated for Female Hottie twice, in 2014 & 2016, but lost to Selena Gomez & Kendall Jenner, respectively. She also received nods for TV Scene Stealer, Style, Snapchatter, Summer Movie Star, as well as Movie Villain, which she won in 2015 for her performance in The DUFF.
