Moments ago, we posted the first interview with bullied teen, Casey Heynes.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Well, it turns out that Casey’s bully also gave an interview to show his side of the story.
12-year-old Ritchard Gale sat down with Australian show “Today Tonight”, saying that with those 40-seconds of video, he has now turned into the bad guy when he shouldn’t be.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â He says that what the camera failed to capture was Casey had provoked him. Ritchard says:
“He was like ‘go to class’ and calling me an idiot and stuff. And I didn’t like it. And he pushed me and stuff and ran down to the front of the office and that’s when I hit him,”
When asked what he’d like to say to Casey, the 12-year-old said he did not realise that Casey had been a victim of bullying.
“Sorry that I picked on him and I didn’t know that he’d been bullied his whole school life,”
But the question is…does that, among many other answers, sound genuine, or is this just a boy and family taking advantage of the media spotlight and trying to clear their name?Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Check out the interview below, and let us know what you think!
