Halsey Parkerson Forces Bully To Apologise After 100 Facebook Friends Turn Up To Support Him

A high-school bully has been forced to apologise to a boy he accused of having no friends after 100 people held a rally in support of the victim.

Incensed, Parkerson's aunt took to posted a message on the Facebook page of a car club she runs.

This prompted 50 vehicles - some driving from as far as Vancouver - containing around 100 people to bring the school parking lot to a stand still.

Parkerson said: "It's just unbelievable. I now know whenever I get bullied I'll raise my head up and say, 'Sorry, I have too many friends to think I'm being bullied."

When Parkerson and his rather large group of followers confronted the unnamed bully, he was given an apology and a high-five.

He said: "I apologise and I take it back."

The school's principle, although initially alarmed at the sudden influx of cars, decided to let the event pan out.

Parkerson added: "If you're being bullied, stand up and express yourself.

"This is one glorious day."
