The beating of a 12-year-old redheaded boy this past Friday is linked to two of the favorite punching bags of those unwilling to directly blame the jerk kids responsible: Facebook and South Park.
The boy, who attends middle school in Southern California, is the victim of a beating that seems to stem from a Facebook page proposing "Kick a Ginger Day," which in turn is linked to a particular episode of South Park. The worst part? That poor kid was beaten up not once but twice, in the same day, by two separate groups of his classmates. Luckily it seems the kid was not seriously injured, though as of yet his attackers have not been arrested. As the proud coworker of two redheads, I hope the bullies get their asses kicked by a large Scottish man. [CNN]
