DULUTH, Ga. (WXIA) -- A bullying video posted online by a Gwinnett County boy who wears a turban is approaching 1 million views -- people around the world seeing and hearing some of his fellow classmates taunting him, calling him a terrorist.
Gwinnett County Schools released a statement Wednesday saying that the students were calling each other names; it does not say the boy was bullied.
The Duluth Middle School students were on their school bus. The 12-year-old boy who recorded the cellphone video is a member of the Sikh religion. The turban he is wearing is called a patka, common among Sikh boys.
He sits facing forward in his bus seat throughout the video, which lasts less than 45 seconds. He simply holds the cellphone up to show his classmates sitting in the rows behind him; he does not himself turn around to face them.
