The second most popular microblog post on Sina Weibo yesterday (the first was about popular Chinese variety show Happy Camp)…

From Sina Weibo:

@英国报姐: A first grade boy who was bullied and made fun of by his schoolmates got the protection of 45 upper older schoolmates…

"This child is named Danny, and he's in the first grade this year. Because of a speech impairment resulting from a brain hemorrhage not long after he was born and him often wearing a suit and tie, he has become a target of bullying and ridicule by some classmates."

"Several fifth grade older schoolmates learned of this and then organized 45 people to dress like Danny, to protect and support him."

"While being interviewed, one older schoolmate said: 'We saw that there were people bullying our younger schoolmate and we won't stand for it. We all love our younger schoolmate, so we should stand forward to protect him.' As he said this, he became emotional and shed tears."

"Danny's parents also say that Danny cried for a long long time that night before bed. Concerned, his mother had also asked him what was wrong, and he said he felt really blessed/happy to be so taken care of and loved."

Comments from Sina Weibo:

刘骜:

When I was in third grade, I was beaten up by a group of first graders, and in the end, it was a girl in my class who stepped forward to help me by chasing them away.

夜墨菌:

May I trouble people to stop making mocking or sarcastic jokes underneath warm [touching] microblog posts like this in the future? It’s really annoying.

呼风唤雨的Jewelry:

A person’s childhood is very important in shaping their personality. Look, right now, he has gotten a small bit of concern/compassion. When he grows up, he will magnify this small bit of concern/compassion that he originally received. We should all think about what role we play in other people’s lives.

不99说88:

Why does it feel like the one wearing red in the animated gif is the main character [of this story]? [黑线]

红烧茄子鸭:

All kind-hearted boys.

文壹路222號:

Other people’s older schoolmates.

生姜学长:

So it isn’t just me who thinks the one in red is pretending to be cool!

清明时节雨中归人:

Such a positive story and there are still people sneering [making negative jokes], are you people still human? [哼]

_Alzheimer:

I’m reminded of when I was small, when once I went out to play with my deaf little brother and then heard two brats behind us laughing at him wearing his hearing aid. I immediately became furious, had my little brother first go home, and then dragged those two kids to a corner of the school where I beat them up. Although I was an older student bullying younger students, it was still satisfying. [呵呵]

一起来吃茶叶蛋:

Every time I see something that is really touching, the comments will always have some comments by silly cunts. [拜拜]

Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.
