How you doing good, alright wait who’s? Who – which one are you Christopher, Christopher Michael time, Michael Antoine? Okay? So whose idea was this idea? Your idea isn’t that okay, so you saw that this is obviously the beginning of the school year. Yes, ma’am just started. Did you know, Michael no ma’am, I didn’t know nothing of much. No, you just had had you seen him getting bullied, or did you hear about it? So what happened was we was in the same class like when school had first started the first week.
I was still on a temporary schedule and they was making jokes of him, and I was also laughing alone and then, like once. I used to just gohome and think about it. I wanted to apologize to Mike, but I wanted to give him something in our policy right. Okay, so then you talk to Antoine about this, and Antoine said I want in. I want tohelp right, okay, and how do you all know each other? We we play football together, play football together. Okay, so y’all are popular. Well, you play football all right, and so so, Michael all of a sudden, these two guys that you don’t know, walk up and decide to give you brand new clothes. How did that feel? I was surprised, shocked, happy trying to give a sherry face instead of show him a smile uh-huh. It was the best day of my life because I was buoyed, yeah us boy, so you were bullied your whole life and suddenly out of nowhere. The kindness of these guys – and you didn’t really want to film it, but somebody just because you didn’t do this – to get attention who filmed this well, some! Well, we have a friend he always had his fun out walking around. Of course, stuff around school he’s saying is walking. Tour is Mike a third period class. You are, he stopped. He was like which I are doing and we was like we’re been reinstated. We just pulled Michael out of class, then people started coming out of class.. You know I had posted it to Facebook. I didn’t, I wasn’t expecting it to go viral dude. I want to do to make a difference to make people stop bullying right right and it did because it was viewed so many times by so many people and that’s why you’re here, because not only did I respond a lot of celebrities. Looked at this and said this is amazing We want to reward these guys and and point this out shine a light on you.
