We Thought It Was Funny, But It Was Cyberbullying

come home straight away after school. This is my best friend, so I had to go with
her because she wanted to tell me what she was so excited about. So we went to the nearest park. She took out this slip of paper from her bag which read out a
phone number. But this wasn’t any phone number – it was a phone number of the girl that she was in beef with. I gasped when I saw it. She’s like, “I know, right? We
have to text her.” And I wasn’t really sure about it because I didn’t want to get in trouble. We went to the nearest bench in the park and she started texting this number
saying, “Hi! It’s me, Jason, from school.” And he started asking her questions like, “Hey,
wanna hang out some time?” And really gross things like asking her for nudes.
The girl whose number it was was actually answering all this stuff, and
sent a picture of herself. When we saw this, we screamed so much and we
started rolling on the floor and laughing. It was so funny. My friend and I
kept running to the park every day after school to text this girl and to pretend
to be this boy from school. The girl kept on looking at the boy called Jason at school, twisting her hair at him like he was actually texting her. And every
single time she did this, we burst out laughing. It was so funny. But one day, she asked to do a video call and my friend was like, “What am I going to do? I’m
not Jason!” So she just made it that she was sick and that she looked a mess. But
this girl did not believe him, so she kept on ringing and ringing and ringing
on FaceTime to see if it was actually Jason. So one day at school, she went up
to Jason and said, “Hey, why can’t you FaceTime? You don’t look sick!” And he was just like, “What are you talking about?” My friend was watching this and she
laughed so loud. It was so obvious that it was her. The girl turned around and
gave her the dirtiest look possible. She knew it was her.
We were busted. She went and reported this to the school, and we were so so
scared. The police got involved because, apparently, this was called cyberbullying.
My friend got grounded, and so did I. But now I know that if one of my friends
wants to do this, I have to stay out of it or try and persuade them not to do it. We want to thank Wix for sponsoring this
