Viral Video of Girl Being Bullied

A Viral Video of a Girl's Encounter With Bullies Is Causing Controversy

When Sarah Cymbaluk learned that her daughter Annie was being bullied at school last December, she advised the 9-year-old to tell a teacher or the principal. When the incidents continued, however, she took matters into her own hands. The Minnesota mom posted a video to YouTube that features her daughter tearfully describing her encounter with bullies, including being told she would "die by suicide." In the video, Cymbaluk asks her daughter how these instances make feel her feel, to which Annie replies, "Sad and scared."

The video, which has since been removed from Cymbaluk's page, eventually made its way to Fosston Schools Superintendent Mark Nohner, who told CNN he was not aware of the bullying prior to Cymbaluk's posting. Though he believes the issue could have been resolved without resorting to social media, Nohner is concerned about this case, and others like it, falling through the cracks.

"We need to review our procedures and policies and maybe do a better job of articulating to the parents what we're doing," Nohner says. Watch the video and tell us, did Cymbaluk go too far?
