The 15-year-old was callled the R-word while he was playing Pokemon Go. Ty Swartout was in an Arizona park playing the online game, when two men (who appear to be Arizona State University students) stomped on a bottle of BBQ sauce, squirting it all over him, and called him the R-word. This was posted on Facebook by his sister.


The post went viral, and on July 31st, dozens of Pokemon players showed up to play the game with Ty. They even brought him gifts!
“I’m so grateful. I’m just so grateful because if this wouldn’t have happened, we would still be hiding in our house like a lot of families like ours do. And I just can’t thank everyone enough,” his sister told ABC 15.
