As part of its anti-bullying initiatives, Instagram has funded Un-filtered, a docuseries directed by Jonah Hill. Running four episodes, the unscripted show features the Hollywood mainstay interviewing people aged 13-25 about their experiences with bullying. The cast open up about a number of topics, ranging from body-shaming to online harassment.
“It was an incredible experience to direct this project,” the Hollywood mainstay said in a statement. “I tried to create an environment for young people to be heard and listened to. I wish there was a platform to hear other’s struggles and experiences when I was growing up. I hope that this will be inspiring for young people to share their stories and feelings and not feel so alone.”
This new docuseries amplifies Instagram’s anti-bullying message. In addition to the social media platform’s hiding of like counts, the app also tested two new features: a “comment warning” that will alert a user if they’re typing what seems like an offensive comment, and a “restrict” option that allows users to review comments before they’re published.
