So easy to pick on him
he wanted a Gun to kill himself.

But then the Sports Rugby Group
said he can walk out with them
that cheered up the lad.

It's nasty when kids get bullied especially over something they can't control, as usual the bullies are cowards if they have to pick on a innocent child like this.

As bad as I feel I'm always a little suspicious of stories like this. Does anyone remember something similar not long ago of a boy crying he was being bullied but it turned out he was the one bullying other and basically his class stood up to him and he tried to then play the victim?

No doubt this kid will probably bully somebody else, who is lower in the hierarchy to him. It's nature.

I haven't watched the video , I just heard it and thought about how nasty bullying is . Never crossed my mind it could be fake .

But I remember here in the UK some years ago a girl got attacked with a pencil sharpener to her face, scarred on the face had to go to hospital . And it was later revealed that she wasn't really much of a victim as she started a fight with racist abuse .

Heartbreaking this is.

The amount of high-profile celebs reaching out to him is so lovely though and I hope it continues and he gets some lovely opportunities out of this terrible thing.

I think he's definitely a child, there is no proof of him being 18 at all.
