More Brony Bullying in North Carolina

3376979_GWell Bronies, the bullies are at it again. Yet again, in North Carolina too. What is up with the bullying of My Little Pony fans in N.C.? First Michael Morones, now: Noreen Bruce, the mother of nine-year-old Grayson Bruce says that her son is being pushed around for bringing a MLP backpack to his school. The school has asked Bruce not to bring the bag to school anymore as they claim it triggers the bullying.

His classmates exclaim that My Little Pony is something that is just for girls.

“They’re taking it a little too far, with punching me, pushing me down, calling me horrible names, stuff that really shouldn’t happen,” Bruce told WLOS News13, an ABC News affiliate in Asheville, N.C. “Most of the characters in the show are girls, and most of the people put it toward girls, most of the toys are girlie.”

Bronies have been showing their support of Grayson Bruce. The nine-year-old even has a following on Facebook, after one of his friends created a page to support him. Yet, why aren’t the bullies at the school being punished?

Grayson’s school has declined to speak publicly about this matter but recently put out a statement, “an initial step was taken to immediately address a situation that had created a disruption in the classroom. We take bullying very seriously, and we will continue to take steps to resolve this issue.”

More on this story as it develops…

    I’m a teacher and this is putting the blame on the bullied not the bullies themselves. I know they were trying to resolve the issue an easy way quickly and schools usually have ridiculous ludicrous and long steps they take with these things. (The movie Bully shows this first hand if anyone wants to see what I am talking about. )

      Bully was a pretty good movie.

    This makes me sick, kid needs to stand up for himself. Just as much of this happens to kids in South Carolina.

    Little man needs to stand up for himself, grow a pair and fight back! I didn’t see anything mentioned on how his father felt about the issue. Not that it would solve everything… but… I do think he needs some positive male influence. I to live in NC and I’m a US Army RANGER (Scroll and Tab) with my lovely GF and her two daughters. I was introduced to MLP and now I wear my Rainbow Dash cutie mark loud and proud. I got your back little man. Stay strong!

    I wasn’t able to find his support page… can someone post it… thanks.

    Kid has a reason to stand out, nopony stays the same. In fact I support you all the way, I take a rainbow dash hoodie to high school and I don’t care if I look awkward, I am proud to be a brony and nopony can tell me otherwise!

    • TheMightyDekuWarrior

      I had a couple of little kids trash talk me today and they…they got chewed out. Let me just say that they had no more words to say after I got verbally finished with them.

        What happened to love and tolerance?

        • TheMightyDekuWarrior

          It flew away.

    The bullies have obviously not been introduced to the elements of harmony. That’s all they need!
