Reality stars don’t usually make headlines for doing good deeds. More often than not, they’re getting press for breaking laws, wreaking havoc in public, and just generally acting like hot messes.

Occasionally, as Love Island’s Maura Higgins recently proved, a reality star will surprise us with a good deed.

Maura Higgins rose to fame during season five of the U.K. famous summer reality show, Love Island. During her time on the show, the Irish beauty was regarded as a kind-hearted girl’s girl. Even though she was generally well-liked, Maura faced online bullying when she left the Love Island villa in 2019.

The online trolls were so vicious that her mother spoke to the press, begging people to remember that celebrities are people too. So, it should come as no surprise that Maura herself went on to use her fame to protect her family from the unpleasant experience of bullying.  

Recently, Maura’s own nephew confided in his family that he was being bullied at school. This confession enraged the reality star, who decided to take a drastic measure to protect her nephew -- show up at his school!

Maura, 31, went along to pick her nephew up from school. As soon as she arrived, her car got mobbed by excited school children who were in disbelief that they were seeing one of the U.K’s  most popular reality stars in their own schoolyard.

Maura shared the school pickup on Instagram, writing: 'When you get a phone call to say he's being bullied at school you make sure you're on the school pick up today.' She followed up her post with a reminder: ‘Remember kids, be kind.'

Maura’s Instagram post reminds us all that we should be kind to those around us. We never know what is going on in someone’s personal life, and the idea that our words or actions could deeply hurt someone should be deterrent enough to keep us from bullying. We can’t all use our fame and fortune to fight bullying like Maura did, but we can do smaller actions -- they all add up!

But decades later it seems his past is coming back to haunt him. In a shocking interview, Jada Pinkett-Smith confronts Snoop about Tupac’s tragic death. She asks the questions no one dared ask: Why did Snoop and Tupac have a falling out? Did Snoop betray Tupac to save himself?
