A high school bully tried to pick a fight with a blind student, but as one viral video shows he ended up learning a very important lesson.
Video of the fight was uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday and reportedly took place at Huntington Beach High School in Southern California. Though the video starts after the confrontation has already begun, viewers see one teenager attacking a blind student who appears to have no interest in fighting back.
After the aggressor lands a punch to the blind teen, he’s decked by someone who was standing just outside of the camera’s frame. The bully is sent crashing to the ground hard, though he remains conscious (and presumably filled with regret).
The teen who intervened checked on the blind student to make sure he was OK, then turned his attention back to the bully.
“Trying to f***ing jump a blind kid, bro,” he said, standing over the bully.
The video ends as the teen warns the bully to stay away from the blind student.
“I swear to God, if you f**k with this kid again I will f**k you up,” he said.
Video of the fight can be seen below, but be warned that there is some bad language and violence.
As so often happens, video of the bully getting a beatdown after trying to fight a blind student went viral after being posted to Reddit. The video was shared by a user whose brother attends the high school in question (and who appears to be the original uploader to YouTube), but he wasn’t able to offer any further insight into the incident, including when it happened or what sparked the original fight.
Many of the commenters praised the third teen, whose name was Cody, for defending the blind student. Others worried that he would likely be suspended by his high school under the now-ubiquitous “zero tolerance” policies.
The video of the bully getting decked for hitting a blind student proves that people love seeing bullies get their comeuppance. Every few months a video of this nature goes viral, including one from May of a bully following around a student inside a library, trying to spark a fight.
“Didn’t I tell you to walk away from me,” the teen shouted to the bully after unleashing a torrent of punches.
Video of the bully getting beat up after attacking a blind student is well on its way to going viral as well. The Reddit post has more than 5,000 user votes and the YouTube video, just a few hours old, is already nearing 10,000 views.
