says it’s a ‘trigger for bullying’
Bruce likes the show because it promotes friendship.
But some of the students at Grayson’s school picked on him because they think the show is made for girls.
“They’re taking it a little too far, with punching me, pushing me down, calling me horrible names, stuff that really shouldn’t happen,” he told WLOS ABC 13. One student even told the 9 year old to go kill himself.
One day the bullying became too much, said Bruce’s mother Noreen Bruce.
“He didn’t want to get out of the car because kids were being really mean,” she told USA Today. She called the school counselor to get help.
“One of her suggesti tiffany uk ons was to hide it,” Noreen said. “She said that if you have something like this you’re asking for trouble.” Later, the principal of the school called and told her to keep the bag at home because it was a “trigger for bullying.”
“Saying a lunchbox is a trigger for bullying, is like saying a short skirt is a trigger for rape. It’s flawed logic, it doesn’t make any sense,” Noreen said. She told the school, “You’re missing the picture here. You’re telling him that it’s OK for them tiffany uk to make fun of him.”
Noreen Bruce is now homeschooling Grayson tiffany uk . She has created a “Support for Grayson” Facebook page that has over 37,000 likes. People have been submitting messages of support for Grayson on the page, which he has been reading, according to one of the posts.
The school has not commented directly on the situation, but Jason Rhodes, the communications director for Buncombe County Schools, said this in a statement:
“First and foremost our schools take any allegations of bullying seriously and work diligently in all cases to resolve the issues in the best interest of students. We have programs in place to prevent, report and interv tiffany uk ene to keep our students safe and protected.”
