15-year-old Casey Heynes had enough. After being bullied by a fellow student one too many times, the Australian teen says he ‘snapped’ and body-slammed his alleged bully. Video of the incident has gone viral, making Heynes the face of the anti-bullying movement.
During an interview Sunday on Australia’s “A Current Affair” Heynes admitted to previously contemplating suicide because of the bullying.
Both Heynes and his bully have been suspended because of their school’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding fighting.
