Nate Berkus, host of The Nate Berkus Show, says gay teens are increasingly being bullied on social networks.

The 39-year-old Berkus holds the distinction of being the first openly gay man to host a nationally syndicated daytime talk show. The interior designer became a television personality offering design advice to viewers on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

During an appearance on CNN's Larry King Live, Berkus advocated for parents to intervene on behalf of children who are being bullied.

“Everyone knows who the bullies are, Larry,” Berkus said. “Walk into a third-grade class and it takes you 2 minutes to identify who is bullying who.”

“You be that hero,” he added. “We have to intervene.”

And in a new interview with all-things-television website, Berkus said the Internet has allowed bullies to terrorize their victims at all hours.

“What I think a lot of people don't realize is that the methodology of bullying has changed because of technology,” he said, adding that bullying used to be isolated to the playground.

“Now, it's being posted on the Internet, it's going viral, it's on YouTube, it's on Facebook, it's in all the social media and … I don't know that there's anything worse.”
