God, kids can be so mean!
Lauren ‘Lulu’ Williams suffers from a severe scalp condition. She was left humiliated when boys from her high school filmed themselves ripping off her wig.
Such cruelness – all for a $5 bet.
But Lulu has shown her brave and determined spirit by opting to completely shave her head.
The 16-year-old’s horrible ordeal was filmed in the middle of the hallway at Franklin High School in Tennessee on Friday.
The distressing video was shared on Snapchat with the caption ‘weave snatching’.
The footage shows a male student ripping off Lulu’s wig before running away down the hall.
Authorities and officials from Franklin High are investigating the disgraceful incident.
The school district said they would prosecute the person responsible to the fullest extent of the law.
Lulu’s devastated mother Myckelle took to Facebook to publicly share the story.
She claims her daughter called her ‘screaming and crying’ over the incident.
‘Lulu has a scalp condition that causes severe dryness and hair breakage and loss.’
‘She has been so ashamed of her appearance that she had taken to wearing wigs in an effort to still feel beautiful.’
‘We all know how easy it is to feel insecure at age 16,’ she wrote on Facebook.
‘These kids not only tore her wig off in the middle of school, but video taped it.’
‘They followed her to the bathroom as she screamed and cried and proceeded to tape her OVER the stall as she cried and begged for her wig.’
‘Later I had to take her to the hospital for abrasions and whiplash.’
Following the traumatic ordeal, Lulu bravely decided to shave her head in a bid to stop the bullies from winning.
‘She was not wanting to feel controlled by her hair any longer, and take back her control,’ Myckelle said.
‘I admire the strength and beauty of my little Lulu and know that she will inspire many others even through this difficult time in her life.’
In a statement, Franklin High School said they started investigating the incident immediately after it was reported to them on Friday.
‘This type of behavior can never be tolerated at school. In addition to school discipline, Williamson County Schools prosecutes delinquent behavior to the fullest extent of the law,’ it read.
