In a story that is becoming all too common, another 15-year-old high school student was videotaped being severely beaten by a fellow classmate - just for being gay.
The attack took place recently at Union-Scioto High School in Chillicothe, Ohio and a horrible video of the encounter was posted on Facebook for the world to see.
Now, the bullied student’s mother is speaking out.
In the video, you can see the bully waiting at the door for the young student to come into the classroom and once the student enters, the bully begins to pummel the younger boy.
The boy even asked while he was being beaten: "Why are you doing this?"
The bullied student's mother told WSYX news:
"For all those people that have hate in their hearts, they need to let it go because people are going to be who they are."
The student also says that the perpetrator wrote "Check out the definition of a faggot" on his Facebook page two days earlier.
The young student sustained a concussion and a chipped tooth and the bully merely received a three day suspension from school.
Sadly, bullying cases like this have become more common in recent years and it continues to be a stain on society.
