Rise of the social media Fight Club: Schoolgirl is forced to fight with her colleagues before the video is posted on Instagram and Facebook for likes
- A student from Perth 7 was forced to fight another student during a bully incident
- Some girls made a video of the fight and posted it on Instagram and Facebook
- The victim said the video was shared for likes and followers on social media
A girl from year 7 suffered facial injuries after being beaten by another student in a confrontational incident that was recorded for the amusement of others.
Hitting the 12-year-old student in high school in Perth was the last instance of schoolyard violence that was set up to be shared on social media later.
The incident recently took place at a school in the southern suburbs of Perth, but the name of the school was not disclosed.
Her grandmother said the school response & # 39; pathetic & # 39; had been in favor of banning telephones on school grounds to prevent such bullying.
The video of the alleged incident showed a group of girls who turn on the hunters.
A girl from year 7 started with an alleged bullying incident in which she was forced to throw punches at another student before the video was posted on social media for likes
& # 39; The girls started to say round 2 round 2, you must have two rounds, three rounds, & # 39; told the 12 year old student Nine news.
& # 39; I have blood lips and bruises. & # 39;
The student said the fight was filmed for later posting on social media sites.
& # 39; On Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook … like getting other people entertainment and followers, & # 39; she said.
The name of the school was not disclosed.
The video of the alleged incident shows that some girls urged the two students to continue fighting as they crowded and pulled each other
Earlier her tormentors photographed her in the toilets of the school and she does not know where those photos ended up.
& # 39; You have delinquents running around and governing the schools, & # 39; said the student's grandmother.
The grandmother was in favor of banning telephones in schools, as had happened in Victoria.
& # 39; It takes away their power to improve yourself, degrade other people, and take inappropriate photos & videos, & # 39; she said.
A WA Ministry of Education spokesperson said the school worked with the family to support the child.
& # 39; The family and the school did not worry about how they handle the situation, & # 39; said the spokesman.
Western Australia has the second highest number of home schooled children per capita, partly due to such violence.
& # 39; Bullying is one of the biggest reasons why parents decide to give their children a home school & # 39 ;, Saani Bennetts, member of the Home Education WA committee, told ABC earlier.
& # 39; They think their children are having a very difficult social time at school and that parents are now more aware of & # 39; we will no longer tolerate it & # 39;. & # 39;
The girl's grandmother described the school's response to the incident: & # 39; pathetic & # 39;
