Halsey Parkerson

A high-school bully decided to apologize after 100 Facebook users showed up to rally behind a boy he had accused of having no friends.

South Salem High School Junior Halsey Parkerson got a huge surprise [], when more than 50 cars showed up at his school to help him stand up to a local bully.

KATU reports that [], Parkerson’s aunt had stopped by his school to have lunch with him. That’s when a bully began taunting Parkerson and saying it didn’t matter because he “didn’t have any friends.”

Parkerson told his aunt that it happened “all the time.” In response, she reached out to an online car club she belongs to on Facebook and asked people to show up to the school for lunch.In response, more than 50 cars showed up, carrying at least 100 people. And KATU’s Erica Nochlin was there as well with a camera crew in tow.

“It’s just unbelievable,” Parkerson told KATU. “I now know whenever I get bullied I’ll raise my head up and say, ‘Sorry, I have too many friends to think I’m being bullied.'”

And the story just gets better from there. When Parkerson and his new friends approached the unnamed bully, he offered Parkerson a high-five and an apology.
