John just posted a message on Facebook about Sandra. He told his friends she would be pretty if she wasn't so fat.
While Sandra and John are not friends on Facebook, they do have friends in common and Kelsey just sent Sandra the screen shot of what John posted.
Why would he post that?!
He has to laugh at me at school too?!! I just want to go home...
John doesn't know that Sandra has seen his post yet. Sandra doesn't want to be at school.
Last night's episode was so funny!
What was meant to be a private joke has deeply affected Sandra.
Mom, I feel sick can I stay home?
Sandy! Time for school!
What you said about Sandra was gross! You are a bully!
I never meant for her to see it! It was just a joke!
Kelsey confronts John in class after Sandra has missed several days.
Whether or not it was a joke, what you say has meaning. Make a better choice next time.
John is going to be suspended for a week because of what he said. Jokes between friends when put on the internet are actually public and what John said is considered cyber bullying. What you say affects people.
