Facebook Friends Turn Out in Droves to Show Support For Bullied Teen [VIDEO]

It’s a good day when a kid who’s been bullied can stand up to his attackers, and Halsey Parkerson did just that with the help of his aunt, and about 100 Facebook friends.

When she joined her nephew for lunch last Thursday, Parkerson’s aunt overheard a bully telling him that he has no friends, and that no one cares about him. She was appalled, and decided to do something about it. The word went out on Facebook, and members of the woman’s car club showed up the next day to demonstrate that Parkerson does indeed have friends — a whole lot of new friends.

Salem, Ore. TV station KATU was there as the cars created a bit of congestion on the school’s grounds. Then Halsey shared a bit of advice for anyone who gets picked on.

“If you’re being bullied, stand up, and express yourself.”

After seeing the show of support, Parkerson’s aggressor had a change of heart.

 “I apologize. I apologize. I take it back.”
