LANTANA, FL – As if public shaming and bullying isn’t bad enough, recording it and posting it online adds insult to injury.

That’s apparently what someone did after a student in Florida was beaten up while walking home from high school.

The video shows the student being repeatedly punched and not fighting back. The video was posted to the website worldstarfights.com and now the victim’s mom says her son will be home-schooled.

“He is embarrassed. He is afraid to walk down the street because he thinks everyone is judging him now because he didn’t fight back,” says the victim’s mom.

It’s unclear what led up to the incident, but the victim had to be taken to the hospital, and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is looking into it.
