The girl was constantly trying to rile him up, and even though there were so many people witnessing the incident, no one did anything, till he hit her back.
Bullying has been a constant issue, not just in schools, for centuries now, but that's something that hasn't really changed. There are a lot of reasons why someone becomes a bully, but that doesn't really justify their behavior. A lot of kids go through horrible teasing, name-calling and in some cases, violence from their peers. According to the National Center for Education Statistics and Bureau of Justice, as many as 20% of students aged 12-18 experienced bullying in 2017. When a child goes through bullying, it really affects their physical and mental health. They are more likely to go through depression and anxiety, have decreased academic achievement and increased health complications. Despite the devastating effect bullying can have on kids, adults and teachers fail to appropriately intervene and help the victims, or sometimes, they tend to pick sides and misjudge the entire scenario, thus leaving the bullied victim a lot more bruised than they initially were.
Recently, a video of a fight that broke out in a school ground went viral and it shows us what's really wrong with the system. The video shows a girl constantly harassing a boy, who is trying to back out of the situation, but she keeps following him, trying to provoke him and get a reaction out of him. However, she shows no signs of leaving and as the taunts keep increasing, he retaliates and hits her back.
How everyone gon be mad at him??? If they didn't want him to eventually hit back they should've stopped it sooner 🤨🤦♂️ pic.twitter.com/M7Ymx1ETk0— Best Fights (@FightCentralTV) August 31, 2019
Now, that's not what's disturbing about the video. When the girl was obviously harassing the boy, there were a lot of people around, but no one intervened or tried to stop her. However, the minute the boy retaliated, everyone came in and pulled them apart. How is that fair? The boy involved in the video took to Twitter to share what exactly happened: "Didn’t mean for me to make it go down like this but here is the full story on how it started.

So basically me and my friends talking and we hear her say that the school is dumb ass s**t for running a dance after the tragic we had this morning and my friends said that the school can we whatever they want and she didn’t like that and she said that “everyone that goes to that dance need to get shot and put into a grave” and me and my friends were like this b**ch crazy and she started yelling at my friend and I started to laugh and she said she will “smake that smile on my face” and I said ok whatever and she said “you think I’m playing games.
Nah man, you did defend yourself. Know that is the truth. This is what sucks about society, everyone defends the women despite them being the agresor.— SlasherTheMod (@SlasherTheMod) September 2, 2019
I continued to say whatever and she was like ok after class you will see. I said ok and we got out of class and I walked out of the 2000 building and she said “hey pussy we’re are you going” I then turned around and looked at her and then she started yelling in my face and she started to get close to me and that’s when the video started. I walked back all the way to the vending machine and her friend dropped her bag like she was about to do something so I dropped my bad and then I continued to say back up I don’t wanna get mad.
I’m a mom 2 a 13 yr old daughter & SHE KNOWS if she had pulled this kind of shit & the guy finally stood his ground that she’s going 2 b told, “U got exactly what u deserved, he should have done it sooner.” Absolutely no pity 2 a girl being a bully 2 a guy & gets owned 👏👍— Christy Smith (@Christy05525504) September 5, 2019
Then she swung at me and then I said ” last time do not touch me” and then she started yelling in my face again as I’m still trying to get her the f**k away from me and then she swung again so then I slapped her with an open hand and then her friend grab and rips my t-shirt and I turn around and hit her, then she come back and then I hit the crazy b**ch again then a teacher split as up. What I did was f**ked up and I wish I could change it, but I didn’t want to turn my back to her and have both of them behind me so that’s why I did what I did."
You done wat had to be done you were protecting yourself, I say Self Defense, girls or guys cant and shouldn't be putting there hands on one another thank God you finally hit her she More less begged you to so hell wat would any normal human do. The same dam thang. Dont feel bad— Melyssa (@Melyssa51325286) September 3, 2019
He later posted an update: "All 3 of us got into trouble, it is unknown how long I’m suspended. I do not know what happened to the other girls yet and I don’t know if I will ever know. But the school is still “investigating” the fight and they do have the full video. I do not know what is taking them so long to give me a date for how long I’m outa school but I will keep everyone updated. And when the girl yells don’t touch me ever again, I was putting my hand in between us so she can’t get any closer to me, but she kept getting closer and my hand was touching her chest and I continued to tell her to back up."
Just advice. Grammer, very important. However good shit, don't let these fake ass bitches walk over you and don't let the faggots in football mess with you too. They are in the wrong assuming you're the instigator— Nebula (@TheDarkOrigins) September 2, 2019
