Child stands up to bullies, earns White House invite

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, Mich. (CNN) -

Eleven-year-old Logan Fairbanks is going to the White House because he stood up to his Internet bullies in a very public way.

In a video posted on his father's YouTube account, the boy from Michigan, reads a series of cruel comments that people have made about him online.

Logan, visibly shaken while reading each comment, says he wanted to highlight the negativity and face the comments head-on to "encourage people to not bully people online," and "to encourage other people that have been bullied to not let words hurt them."

Logan and his family are set to visit the White House on Monday.
