"Breaking Bad" star RJ Mitte shares his experiences on being bullied as a kid

From CNN:

On Thursday night, “Breaking Bad” star RJ Mitte joined HLN’s Dr. Drew. Mitte has cerebral palsy.  He talked about how how he survived bullying while growing up.

“I was choked out when we were in P.E.,” he said. “Somebody [also] grabbed my sweatshirt and I had my hand broken. [There was ] name calling [as well].”

But Dr. Drew pointed out, “You haven't allowed anything about you to hold you back in any way. You're a famous actor and you have what would be thought of as a disability and you've turned that into a feature of your career.”

Mitte replied, “The biggest thing is being disabled doesn't mean you're disabled. You can do anything you want.”
