Vocalist Susan Boyle, who was teased and tormented by classmates while growing up in her native Scotland, admitted they targeted her because of her learning disabilities due to a battle with epilepsy.
Boyle told Daily Mail that "I was protected in cotton wool. They thought they were doing the right thing. They called me 'touchy.' At school I used to faint a lot. It's something I've never talked about. I had epilepsy. People in the public eye don’t have things like that. All through my childhood they'd say epilepsy is to do with mental function. And now I realize it's not. I was up against all those barriers. It wasn't easy."
Poor Su Bo! She is so amazing and so talented.
