KORN frontman Jonathan Davis has launched a two-week t-shirt brand campaign with Merchful to help those that are suffering from bullying or suicidal thoughts.Davis explains: "As you know, bullying is something a lot of people have to deal with, and many times that type of harassment leads to suicide. "Let's help shine a light on this crap, let's be weird, let's be different, but always be yourself. "Let's see how many people we can get behind this movement." Get your official "Freaks Do It Better" shirt at Merchful.com. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the non-profit organizations the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention and Stomp Out Bullying. Back in 2014, KORN released a song called "Hater" — the lead single off the band's world tour edition deluxe reissue album, "The Paradigm Shift: World Tour Edition". Directed by Yarvo Productions, the accompanying video featured fan-submitted video clips where they shared personal experiences of being a victim of bullying, abuse or hatred and how that affected them. Davis told Loudwire of "Hater": "I think it's for everybody. I don't understand what's going on with society today where it's to the point where kids are getting bullied to the point they blow their fucking heads off or people hate on people because they have stuff that they don't have. Somebody needs to go out and take a belt and whip those kids' asses like they used to back in the day. Something fucking happened, something switched and everyone thought it was funny and okay, so I just wanted to do … a self-empowering kind of song."
