Come on here, let me guess sure. Hey welcome sir. What is your name? Shawn I don’t know if I can guess your age because from behind you look like you’re five so that makes it more difficult What do you think? Can I pick you up? Can I lift you? Throughout the day.

We’re all having fun Yeah As part of a show Angela we wanted to know who would speak up. What were you think? I think it’s abusive don’t listen I don’t like anybody being abused. Nobody likes anybody being verbally abused. I mean, I think that’s Ridiculous, but if you’re abusing somebody who really can’t defend themselves You’re just a nasty person and as the day goes on it’s not Kevin’s act that turns more heads. It’s Nick’s defenselessness We’re just having a good time What am I saying so hurtful you think do I owe him an apology but don’t you think it’s funny It’s part of a show a TV show called what would you do? Yeah, yes. How long were you gonna stay here? Probably for a while until either he walked away until he got an apology. So tell us what was going through your mind We’ve all been there at one point. We kind of just like need someone and no one really comes to our rescue Nik agrees too often, there’s no one there to rescue kids when they’re being bullied people just would stare and Laugh and actually try and like join in on the mockery type of thing But back on the boardwalk its moms to the rescue.

  1. Make me the PRESIDENT NEW LAW all Bully's going to PRISON , too many kids hurt themselves over this bullying

  2. 1:59 well I think hes one of those kids from middle school who thinks I'm too white and I'm not cool because of it…

  3. I remember going to six flags and trying the weight guessing game. I used to be a fat kid so the guy who ran the stand, trying to avoid making me feel bad, just gave me the prize and didn’t make me pay. I didn’t know why he did what he did until I got older.

  4. Its ironic that the people they showed laughing hysterically in the crowd would not find it funny if the tables were turned and jokes about the way they look were being made. That man cant help that hes short anymore than you can help your skin color. So to laugh at someone getting flamed over their height you better be able to take it when someone says asinine things about your race because "it's funny, issa joke"

  5. This actually happened to a friend of mine at The State Fair of Texas when I was like… 10. I went with my grade school pal, Eric (who used to be bullied hardcore for being a tad "overweight…") and his mom and dad. This fuck stick carny barker with a fucked-up mullet and the VERY SAME PERSONALITY as the barker seen in this clip, started really going in on my buddy, and his dad knocked the megaphone outta this prick's hand! (Presumably, trying to connect with his face…) I can still hear the droning feedback from when his megaphone hit the concrete! LOL!! #Itwasglorious #Childhoodmemories

  6. I do feel like the reason More people didn’t step up was because it was like a carnival where everyone wa more people didn’t step up was because it was a carnival where there were stalls everywhere and stuff going on (not an excuse I know)

  7. Laugh with people is cool and funny but making fun or someone and Putting them down because of whatever it may be is very hurtful and not cool

  8. That guy is right he does need a brain for Christmas There is difference between Having fun and then making someone feel bad about themselves

  9. I agree with that mom that who shame people for not standing up and making fun because what if that was them No one wants to be treated like that

  10. I feel so bad at laughing at “Thicc Nick, Thicc Nick”. I knew his intentions were mean, I wasn’t laughing at that. But the way he said it, UGHHH

  11. I like the one about the little person but I don't like the one about the 12 year old that one I wouldn't watch I'll be so mad what the little person doe jokes are super funny

  12. The videos aren't interesting at all. In the video the actors act in a way making them to do it psychologically like forcing them to do it. In reality people solve the problem with each other, hide it or not making any scenes in the public

  13. Some black people don't like when whites are racist to them but they're racist too but not all of them I believe that there's good and bad but those people who are racist

  14. "You need a brain for Christmas"

    I know he's an actor, but my guy does a better job than him 😂
