Gay man gets apology text message from his former bully
ChadMichael Morrisette from Los Angeles received a text message from his high school bully, twenty years after he left school.
He posted on Facebook: “During junior high and high school I was bullied for being who I am. I was bullied for being gay. I was bullied for being little.
“I was bullied for every reason someone is bullied. It was awful. I couldn’t even walk to classes without an adult escort or friends with me.”
He then posted a photo of the text he received: “I was recently talking with my ten year old daughter about bullies. She asked me if I ever bullied anyone and sadly I had to say ‘yes.’
“What came to mind is how shitty and mean I was to you when we were in Jr. High.
“I want to apologize.
“If we lived in the same state, I would apologize to your face.
“I don’t even know if you remember, but I do and I’m sorry.”
Mr Morrisette replied: “I’m quite moved by this. Thank you, and [I] accept your apology.
“In 20 years you are the only person to apologize for being a bully to me when we were younger.
“I hope you can proudly tell your daughter that you’ve apologised and we’re good.”
