High School Bullies Dumped A Deaf Student's Backpack In The Toilet

Alex Hernandez, a deaf student at Burke High School in Oklahoma, was the target of some awful high school bullying last week. In the photo above, you can see the contents of Hernandez’s backpack in a toilet. As you might have guessed, it wound up in the bathroom after bullies dumped it there. The photo has gone viral in a show of support for Hernandez and other victims of bullying.
CollegeCandy discovered that the contents of his backpack included “his tablet, homework, school supplies, his debit card, and his cochlear implant.” Most of that stuff sounds pretty expensive.
As for what happened to the backpack, Hernandez explained that it was taken from him while he was at lunch. When he told the school security about his missing bag, they discovered from CCTV footage that two d*ckheads had walked off with his bag. Hernandez claims he doesn’t know either of the boys.  “Those students think it’s OK to bully a deaf student, but it’s not. It’s not OK to bully someone who is disabled, deaf or hard of hearing. Or anyone for that matter.” Hernandez told the Fox affiliate.
Sadly, this isn’t the first time that he has been bullied because of his deafness, but we’re hoping that it’s the last. As for the backpack? A GoFundMe has been set up in Alex Hernandez’s name, and at the time of this article, the site has reached its goal of $800.
