Mom changes daughters name due to bullying

Mom changes daughters name due to bullying

Amazon’s Alexa first came out in 2013. Prior to that, I don’t think anyone could have imagined that naming their child Alexa would ever be a problem, but sadly that is not the case. A woman has changed her teenage daughters name because the teen was being bullied for her name and was asked what the weather was, and shouting demands constantly. The teenager and other Alexa’s are speaking out about the things people say and it has caused them great harm, even up to the point they don’t want to introduce themselves. The teen who changed her named moved away and changed schools along with her name to escape the bullying. Amazon has replied that they “are saddened to hear of these girls experiences”. They stated they named the voice assistant to reflect qualities they value in people – empathetic, compassionate, smart and inclusive. You can check out more of the story by clicking on the link here…
