Casey Heynes’ Body-Slammed Bully Ritchard Gale Says He’s The Real Victim
It turns out becoming the Poster Child for Brawling Bullies Worldwide is no trip to Six Flags.
Casey Heynes, 16, became an online folk hero last week when he body-slammed Ritchard Gale, a puny seventh grader who relentlessly tormented the teen with punches, slaps, and weight jibes for much of the school year. Perhaps not surprisingly, Gale’s mother, Tina, now claims that her son is the real victim in this case of modern-day schoolyard bullying and she’s demanding an apology — from Heynes himself. Not only has Ritchard become the subject of international scorn since video footage of the body-slam heard round the world went viral, he and his parents argue that it was Casey who actually started the argument that prompted Ritchard’s heckling.
And you may be surprised to hear Ritchard say that he isn’t sorry for targeting Casey.
