We're so proud of this young man's perseverance, but it makes us ill that things like this STILL continue to happen!
Check out (above) 11-year-old male cheerleader Tyler Wilson, who is making headlines for being bullied so badly by his classmates that they broke his arm!
His mother, Kristy Wilson, explains:
"The first thing I wanted to make sure of, when he said he was going to join cheerleading, that he understood the possibility was there that he would get teased and made fun of and he was ok dealing with it. I knew that some of the kids where teasing him, and we talked about ways to deal with that. His first reaction was the tell them to shut up and get verbally combative, and I told him you have to let them know it doesn't bother you… I didn't find out until we went to the school after he was injured that things were starting to get aggressive before that fight even occurred. When I went to the school, about two days after it happened to discuss Tyler's story, the principal said there was an incident Monday and the Friday before, that the boy who started the fight had jumped on Tyler's back and tried to start a fight. I really wish the school would have let me know a lot sooner, so I could have dealt with it sooner."
The boys responsible for breaking his arm have been charged with assault.
Completely unacceptable! Those kids - and their parents - should be absolutely ashamed of themselves!
And Tyler, you keep doing EXACTLY what you're doing!
We know how hard it must be right now, but we PROMISE that in a few years, you'll be surrounded by peers and friends who support you regardless of what kind of sports you want to be involved in!
You've got the right, mature attitude! Don't lose that just because of a few ignorant bullies!
Oh no! If these horrific new details are accurate, this story is much worse than we originally realized!!
We're hearing EXCLUSIVE! new reports about what went on late last night/early this morning between Paris Hilton's younger brother & Lindsay Lohan -- NONE of it is good!
Apparently it all started when Barron Hilton ran into LiLo's model boyfriend at an after party located in the Miami mansion where Lindz was staying!
Sources say her BF started talking trash about Lindsay, about how she was crazy and how he couldn't wait to get away from her! Things really got out of control when the 24-year-old Hilton chimed in to agree!
LiLo's occasional bestie Gavin Doyle supposedly overheard Barron call Lindsay a "joke," which is when the you-know-what hit the fan and splattered all over everyone!
Sources say Gavin immediately ran over to the Mean Girls star and informed her of the trash talking. Lindz allegedly "instigated & orchestrated" the beat down that followed by ordering one of her thug to pummel the stuffing out of an unsuspecting Barron!
