Are you or were you a victim of school bullies?
If so, this viral video of 16-year-old Australian school boy, Casey Heynes who struck back against his bully will be an inspiring one.
In summary, here’s what the video was about, via a Casey Haynes tribute website:
The kids recording the incident were looking to humiliate what they thought would be an easy target. They thought, “We’ve done this for years. Why haven’t we made his humiliation reach a wider audience?” “Imagine how awesome our friends will think we are.” “This will be great! He won’t fight back, we are clearly his betters.”
But the gods were listening.
So they approached him, surrounded him. Thought to contain him. Their first mistake.
So it began in earnest. Taunting came first, it always does. What was it this time? “Ginger”? “Fatty”? Whatever it was, we know it now as “Their Second Mistake.”
The gods were listening.
I had been the subject of bullies for a brief period when I was in primary school and I know horrible it felt to get jumped upon, taunted and humiliated everyday for no good reason.
I know it’s not right to condone violence, but kudos to Casey for standing up for himself.
Bullies be warned.
You never know when the fat kid that you been ragging for ages will explode and pull a Casey Heynes’ Zangief move on you.
Ending off with a news report on the incident on Australia’s ABC News:
