Teen Bully Video Fallout

Both Kids Suspended

3/16/2011 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's the video that has taken over the Internet -- an Australian kid, fed up with being bullied, viciously body slams his tormentor -- and TMZ has learned BOTH kids were reprimanded for their actions.   

Australian Bully
TMZ spoke with a family member of one of the kids ... who told us the bully was suspended for twenty-one days following the incident and the kid being bullied was suspended for 4 -- since he was violent as well.  

We're also told the kid on the receiving end of the vicious body slam did not suffer any serious injuries ... despite the fact he came off the ground with a severe limp.

  Sources tell us the kid who was being bullied is handling the media attention surprisingly well -- and is "very happy" he's received so much support.

Bullies are cowards and losers. They should be punished for inflicting mental and physical pain to their victims. Most bullies are psychopaths and need psychiatric treatments and jail time. Kids in school everywhere should rally against these bullies. Also at home family members can be bullies too. A father and a brother and a sister can be a bully. Call the police immediately if bullies attack you. Or call a lawyer and sue them. ENOUGH WITH BULLIES!

He shouldn't have been suspended since he was defending himself!

That little punk got what he deserved! Too bad kids don't realize how bad bullying affects others.


How's the limp...wimp?


My applause to the kid defending himself!!!

Good for you, kid. Sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands. You know the school wouldn't have done anything if he had reported the bullying except counsel the bully. I think he learned a better lesson this way.

Hey TMZ...


How about a voting box asking if others think the kid defending himself deserved to be suspended or if the bully got beat down enough??

Maybe the next time this bully is body slamed he will not get up grinning. Apparently, from his smiling face, albeit limping, he enjoyed the ride.

When I was a kid, you were expected to stick up for yourself. Given the disparity in size between these two, the idiot bully is lucky he walked away. Bravo to the picked-on kid.
