Despite all of this, there are lots of celebs who have rushed to social media to support Shailene. Noticeably, it was none other than her close friends, Ansel Elgort and John Green.
And John revealed how much respect he has for her with his 140 characters.
It's pretty amazing what is all going down. And not just because she's getting support from the celebrity community but it's because they are speaking about it and bringing awareness to the issue. If it wasn't for Shailene, who is a famous face which gives her access to speak to thousands of people, then this issue that clearly holds a place in her heart would have gone completely unnoticed.
You do your thang, Shailene!
