Burger King Makes a Commercial about Bullying That Will Pierce Your Soul

Oh my gosh, this is a touching video.  Bullying is a terrible thing, but you don’t expect a restaurant to make such a great video about it… especially a fast food restaurant.

But watch this and tell me you don’t tear up just a little bit:


Here are some facts about bullying:

11 Facts About Bullying

  1. Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year.

  2. Approximately 160,000 teens skip school every day because of bullying.

  3. 17% of American students report being bullied 2 to 3 times a month or more within a school semester.

  4. 1 in 4 teachers see nothing wrong with bullying and will only intervene 4% of the time.

  5. By age 14 less than 30% of boys and 40% of girls will talk to their peers about bullying.

  6. Over 67% of students believe that schools respond poorly to bullying, with a high percentage of students believing that adult help is infrequent and ineffective.

  7. 71% of students report incidents of bullying as a problem at their school.

  8. 90% of 4th through 8th graders report being victims of bullying.

  9. 1 in 10 students drop out of school because of repeated bullying.

  10. As boys age they are less and less likely to feel sympathy for victims of bullying. In fact they are more likely to add to the problem than solve it.

  11. Physical bullying increases in elementary school, peaks in middle school and declines in high school. Verbal abuse, on the other hand, remains constant.

Hopefully, Burger King’s video will remind us to do something if we see anyone getting bullied.
