The woman, 28, has a 16-year-old sister called Mia. The big sister said, “Mia’s being bullied by a couple of kids. We’ve tried everything, but the school is not cooperating. My parents have suggested moving, but Mia refuses, so we’re trying to support her.”

A couple of days ago, the woman’s mother received a call from the school to explain what had been happening. They showed the woman’s mother a video that Mia had recorded and then uploaded to social media.

In the video, a boy is being filmed, and he is clearly upset. He is crying a lot, as though he was suffering from a panic attack, as a teacher comforted him. They knew that Mia had recorded the video as she did not try to deny or hide that she had.

The Boy Wasn’t A Bully

Overall, Mia seemed quite unbothered about the situation. Had this boy bullied Mia himself, the woman would have given her sister the benefit of the doubt. But the boy in the video had not been bullying her.

It transpired that the boy was dating one of the girls that have been giving Mia a hard time, though she admitted that he was never around whenever she was bullied. So, Mia doesn’t actually have anything against this boy.

The Older Sister Had Concerns

The woman said, “While I do want her to stand up for herself and for the bullies to get a taste of their own medicine, I don’t want her to take it out on someone who isn’t involved and has problems of their own. Besides, this boy is well-liked, and she just dug a bigger hole for herself.”

Recently, the woman picked her sister up from school and noticed that Mia looked more upbeat than she usually did, so she asked what had happened. She discovered that rumors were going around the school that the boy would not return until the next year, as he was being sent to a mental health facility.

The woman then asked her sister why this was good news. Mia explained that he is essentially the center of attention for their whole friend group. If he is not there, the group would practically fall apart. She thought this would give her ‘the upper hand.’

Mia Asked If She Was Proud

The older woman asked if that was what Mia really wanted, “She said herself that the boy’s actually pretty chill. But she answered yes; he never said anything to her, but guys like him need to be put down a bit. She then asked if I was proud of her.”

She Was Disappointed

The older sister replied that she was not and was actually very disappointed. Mia got quiet after hearing that before saying that she was just frustrated. She knew that nobody would actually be mean to him, and this was why she decided to film his breakdown and upload it onto social media.

The woman told her sister that she had messed up, at which point Mia got mad at her, saying that she expected her sister to be on her side. The older woman said she was but that she was not proud of her actions. Mia called her sister a jerk and has not spoken to her since.

The woman then asked whether she was in the wrong for what she said. She knows that the situation is not fair; however, she acknowledges that her sister’s actions were wrong and that the boy was simply an easy target.

People Responded

One internet user said, “The solution to bullying is never more bullying. What she did to that poor boy was just as bad as what was done to her, and she is completely in the wrong.”

Another commented, “Yeah… I kind of understand, but I definitely don’t condone Mia’s behavior. Obviously, what she’s done is out of line, but a kicked dog will bite, and it feels safer to lash out at someone who isn’t the bully. I hope she takes her sister’s assessment of the situation seriously. I hope the boy gets the help he needs.”
