Betty White Will Go Purple With Spirit

With GLAAD’s annual Spirit Day just about a week away (Oct. 17), more personalities are throwing their support behind the anti-bullying movement—including America’s sweetheart! In fact, Betty White is getting into the spirit and renaming herself “Betty Purple” for the day.


Betty and her Hot In Cleveland cohorts join a growing list of famous friends, including Ke$ha, Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi and Jenni ‘JWOWW’ Farley, basketball player Jason Collins; the cast of Degrassi, WNBA player Brittney Griner—and of course your favorite magazine, Instinct!

GLAAD and Toyota Financial Services have also launched the “Go Purple for #SpiritDay powered by Toyota Financial Services” apps for iPhone and Android. The app provides users with anti-bullying resources, calls to action and a tool that can turn photos purple and share to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The free app is now available in the Apple App Store and on Google Play. To download, visit

Head over to the official Spirit Day webpage and take the pledge to go purple with us on Oct. 17. (You’ll even be entered to win a trip for two to Vegas!)
