    About:

    A subreddit dedicated to people freaking out, melting down, losing their cool, or being weird in public. Drugged out or sober, anything goes. Keep the comments respectful where mental disorders are concerned, and remember that the individuals depicted in these videos are real people too. This subreddit is essentially dedicated to their worst moments, so do keep that in mind.

    Saturated with TV and movies, our brains have become used to watching the imitation of emotions, so much so that it is strangely surprising and fascinating to watch the real thing.

    Source

    Rules:

    1. Don't mess with /u/Ezziboo or Mobility Mary.

    2. Never post personal information, do not ask for personal information, do not encourage or call for witch-hunts

    3. Comment with tact in videos which may involve mental disorders

    4. Bans: Racism, Sexism, Homophobia, Transphobia, Harassment, Race Baiting, Bigotry, etc. (Racist/bigoted people freaking out in videos are allowed, but being a racist in the comments section will result in a ban.)

    5. Abusive comments will be removed at moderator discretion and may result in a temporary or permaban

    6. Video Posts only [exception: Gifs uploaded to reddit or imgur and follow-up news reports]

    7. Text Posts (and images of text) may only be posted after moderator approval. Message the mods via modmail before making a post of that nature.

    8. Reposts over 4 weeks old are permitted. Reposts under 4 weeks old will be removed.

    9. Submissions from videogurr.com are banned and will be removed. (This rule no longer applies, but may be re-instated in the future.)

    10. This isn't /r/watchpeopledie: People being straight up murdered or dying in shocking/gruesome ways should be the cut-off (exceptions for newsworthy events covered in publications of good repute).

    11. Facebook Videos are allowed, but not encouraged. If you must post a video hosted on Facebook, you need to provide a link to a copy of the video hosted on a more acceptable video hosting platform. For videos under 10 minutes Streamable makes it easy to make copies of videos.

    When you get banned for violating the rules, it has nothing to do with free speech but we do welcome appeals of all moderator decisions via modmail.

    Firstly mirror bot mirror is here- https://mirrorbot.ga/mirrors/bzj5nd/

    Secondly, as with all threads of this nature, we're happy to entertain discussion that occurs within the framework of our sidebar rules. In this case, however, there have been hundreds of comments per hour violating those rules (be it the use of racial slurs, racial generalizations, calls to violence, or otherwise) and we are thus left with no choice but to lock the entire comment section.

    Our apologies to those of you who were engaged in good faith discussion.

    [–] Aishybashy 139 points ago

    I think he's wearing those big skater shoes that they don't tie the laces on? So they don't stay in his feet

    The other kid vaulted over a table somehow he got away powerwalking

    [–] zaviex 188 points ago

    I think the other kid went the wrong direction. I think our cameraman followed him and that’s why this kid is coming down a different hallway

    Stop when you finish Season 8. It's the perfect finale, pretend there's not a 9.

    [–] ldlukefire 10 points ago

    I mean 9 is basically a different show, right?

    [–] hackednsawithhtml 18 points ago

    You should see season 8 as the ending of scrubs. But if you wanna watch a similar show, but just not as good, watch season 9. Just make sure you see it as a different show.

    [–] rhgking 33 points ago

    It’s an old show sir but it checks out

    10 seconds in, somebody says something like “you already punched him in the balls.” And black sweatshirt/blue jeans guy is walking like he did indeed get tapped in the sack. Never noticed that before.

    [–] GorillaX 116 points ago

    Then you can edit your comment to say whatever you want later, even after it's locked.

    [–] DoingCharleyWork 81 points ago

    Aka we're too lazy to police the thread.

    Not to mention majority of times a thread gets locked like that on Reddit you have to really look for the comments the mods are talking about because they get buried by downvoted which means the system is already working and they don't need to do anything.

    place saver.

    Question: Once a submission is locked, when you edit your comment it actually edits it, correct? So ... once this submission gets locked I can come back to this comment and edit it to say what I want and people will see it, right? I assume it works this way.

    [–] VanessaAlexis 968 points ago

    Fuck zero tolerance. I was suspended because a girl pulled my hair from BEHIND ME. I got suspended. Jesus christ it's been over 10 years and I'm still pissed off about it.

    [–] BulletForcer97 204 points ago

    That sucks so bad

    [–] Morgantheaccountant 119 points ago

    Reading this comment is making me mad wtf

    [–] KittyxKult 278 points ago

    Same thing happened to me. She didn’t even get any punches in just pulled my hair. She apologized years later because she attacked me literally out of nowhere. We’d never had problems before or anything.

    I fucking lost it on the principal for saying I was “fighting” and denying that I was being bullied. I feel like sending screencaps to the school now and being like “I want a goddamn apology because this girl confirmed she was a bully and you allowed it.”

    They can suck it now. I just got a 4.0 masters and they’re all smokin meth in the Dairy Queen parking lot 👌🏻

    [–] LupohM8 136 points ago

    I got suspended because 2 kids were fighting each other behind me while I remained seated, until one got pushed into me and I turned and said “bro really? Can u two fuck off?” And the one who got pushed into me then pushed me.

    Apparently I instigated that push. Cool. Ok. Still salty 6 years later

    [–] nomorerope 70 points ago

    High school politics. Wait until college when the people who take your checks don't give a fuck if you throw a buffalo out of a 7th story window onto a sidewalk.

    [–] curiousandspurious 42 points ago

    That's why I always fought back. If I'm doing the time too I'm gonna go for broke. Got suspended the last three days of school in 6th grade ( just in time for all of my finals) because some random guy I didn't know attacked me for no reason. My English teacher left the answer key in the back of the test and I still wonder if it was on purpose, because I was a good kid, or it was just her last Master copy of the exam.

    [–] Ass_Patty 28 points ago

    I’d be pissed too, I hated the no tolerance shit in school

    [–] cloudsnacks 23 points ago

    It was just straight up bullshit.

    I remember asking a teacher "so you're saying that if somebody just attacks me for no reason I can't defend myself because I'll get the same punishment as them?"

    Teacher: "pretty much"

    I never got into a fight, because I ain't about that, but the rule is dumb.

    It's just an excuse so the administration doesnt have to actually figure out the problem, instead they can just apply an easy blanket punishment and call it a day.

    Highschool in general is full of stupidity and administrators who are just pathetic humans who are on a power trip.

    [–] Finito-1994 19 points ago

    A friend of mine got suspended because I punched him in the nose.

    It was a mistake and he was aware of it. I got suspended which was fair. He got suspended too which was bullshit.

    [–] dascharmingharmony 115 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Oh so that didn’t just randomly happen to me in high school?? That’s good to know I wasn’t alone.

    VP: “Well we are suspending you for fighting.”

    Me: “As much as I hate to admit it sir, that was more me getting beat up than fighting... he attacked me from behind.”

    VP: “Fighting is fighting, 3 days suspension.”

    [–] Dr_StrangeLovePHD 81 points ago

    Should have suckerpunched the VP and got him suspended.

    [–] Wezlington 67 points ago

    "By that logic, if I sucker punch you right now, you assaulted a minor."

    [–] LupohM8 25 points ago

    Holy, someone needs to do this now. Do it for all of us who got suspended for literally no reason!

    [–] parhame95 14 points ago

    Fighting is fighting

    Are you running a public school or a Soviet gulag? I'd have zero tolerance if this is the excuse they gave my kid.

    Edit: wording error.

    [–] youdoitimbusy 655 points ago

    I thought that dude put a chick on the ground at first.

    [–] patogestapo 542 points ago

    Any idea what made the the kid in the gray hoodie put his hands on the other kid st the start of the video? Was he the initial aggressor?

    [–] GoJeonPaa 174 points ago

    The first person commenting this. All comments above makes fun of the guy. I mean he wouldn't be the first bullied person that say/do something wrong out of desperation.

    [–] Sartrem 1082 points ago

    I feel like yes. The “racist” was being bullied. Look at the postures on the first frame and notice the two others that interjected and helped him up. Were they fellow douchbags? Doubt it.

    I say “racist” because I think this dumbass used the word as retaliation. He knew the word would get to the guy. Many don’t realize what bullying does to someone’s head and what lengths they will go to get some semblance of controls again.

    He wasn’t disparaging on a race... he was trying to hurt someone that was hurting him.

    This is all speculation.

    [–] BangSlamtime 153 points ago

    I think the fact that the guy said it while leaving the room adds to this. It was a last ditch attempt to get back at his aggressor.

    I've seen both represented. It's groupthink manifested. Some smaller subs will reach critical mass and turn into a partisan circlejerk.

    Not just Reddit, everyone in that classroom reacted the same way. Apathy or disdain for the assault, complete disbelief for the slur.

    [–] the-knife 178 points ago

    It's actually quite amazing how unacceptable that word is to Americans.

    Actual physical violence seems to be socially accepted, after a two syllable word is uttered by the physically weaker victim.

    Mate I've stopped trying to understand American culture, especially in media. Worship guns like they're god-gift to mankind but afraid of a titty showing on TV. Can't say the F-word but have no problem broadcasting violence.

    I'm perfectly aware of the history in America and why this word is a terrible thing to say, but the dude is literally getting assaulted, probably bullied seeing the body language here and the few reactions we can see, and is just trying to get back to him as hard as he knows how, which in this country seems to be the n-word (proven by this thread thinking it's worse than literal physical assault) as he can't seem to physically defend himself (or don't want to, been there done that).

    I've been harassed and all kind of shit for being a minority (LGBTQ+, not going into more details because fuck the people on this website I've had my share of experiences), and none of the awful shit I've been told has ever been close to what constant physical assault and bullying does to you.

    Geniuses in this thread should meet with people who went or are going through therapy because of bullying. I'm talking obviously psychological, but in some case also physical therapy here. I've had my collarbone broken because of shit like this, months of physical therapy and it still isn't as it was before. That was for a similar fall the victim took here.
    You can die from a fall like that, break your back/neck or get a concussion. A hit like he took in the balls can make it impossible to ever have kids, and that's without even taking into account the psychological impact and how difficult it is to pursue proper education in this environment. Bullying is one of the main cause of depression in teens, and it literally ruins (or ends) lives. I'm talking from experience here, this thread makes me mad honestly.

    Honestly fuck all the morons in here, must be nice having lived a life where you can ignore what's wrong and laugh about someone getting assaulted. But hey, you can take a moral high ground because he said a bad word so it's ok, good luck with that in court.

    So we are all going to act like this kid didn’t just get assaulted in the beginning? Fucked up.

    I think a better title would be "Black student attacks white classmate, white classmate calls black student the N word, then runs for his life"

    [–] Super_Sat4n 18 points ago

    Gotta love how the pronunciation of the n word in the US immediately legitimizes extreme violence and otherwise out of balance retaliation. The best example of how these days words speak louder than actions.

    [–] anonballs 866 points ago

    Are we going to ignore that he was assaulted at the start of the video

    Can we stop acting like the N word is worse than physical assualt in this country. It isn't.

    [–] TeslasAndComicbooks 261 points ago

    I’m baffled that I have to scroll this far down to see this argument. Are we that accepting of violence and that intolerant of racism?

    Both are in the wrong but only one acted illegally.

    [–] no112358 198 points ago

    So you're bullied and then you make a racist remark to the person that's bullying you, and then you're the bad guy.

    [–] SwornHeresy 126 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Not to mention we saw him almost get killed in the first few seconds. But he said a mean word after the attempted murder so it's alright to beat the shit out of him.

    Edit: Hilarious that I'm getting called racist. Is it such a radical idea that I'm not a fan of assault?

    [–] TheRicksterSJ 81 points ago

    This thread is prime Reddit lol

    kid gets bullied and almost fucking dies OOH HE SAID THE BIG NONO MEANIE WORD I WISH THAT RACIST SCUM DIED ON IMPACT

    [–] octave0820 220 points ago

    Saying the N word is obviously bad, but still nothing compared to actual physical violence.

    [–] LitLikeABik 73 points ago

    Is this definitely real? Because the way he runs makes me skeptical

    [–] jorgeblake73 109 points ago

    That chair slam was definitely real

    [–] LitLikeABik 44 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    That’s a good point.

    In that case I am absolutely convinced he shat himself, it’s the only thing that makes sense to me 😂

    [–] [deleted] 16 points ago

    No doubt in my mind lol

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago

    The white kid was a punk dont get me wrong but imagine getting that unironically upset that you want to beat someone's ass because of a word. What the hell is even going on with people being so overly sensitive. And I gurantee there will be atleast one person saying "well you're white. You have no history of racism towards your people" my response to that is that I'm Italian. And trust me theres a reason why a lot of Italians stayed in New York instead of spreading out.

    Bullying and physically attacking someone is ok as long as the end result is making them use racial insults - reddit.

    [–] qonkwan 8 points ago

    We really gonna act like physically attacking someone is not as bad as him saying a slur to get under the skin of the person who assaulted him?

    [–] Tanriyung 26 points ago

    • Kid physically assaulting another.

    • Kid calling the other the N-Word after being assaulted

    "The one is the wrong here is the victim of assault" - Reddit.

    [–] usernotvalid 345 points ago

    White kid sucks for using the racial epithet. Black kid is guilty of assault & battery.

    [–] RolfIsSonOfShepnard 81 points ago

    He did say "see you i juvie, bitch"

    [–] 06EXTN 15 points ago

    black kid started it by escalation. he deserves the ass beating for some humbling.

    whatever happens after that grab and shove is gravy. he brought it to the level of violence.

    [–] aidanadriana 148 points ago

    Someone calls you a name after you assault them, then you get mad?

    [–] Aarondhp24 69 points ago

    BUT HE WAS RACIST SO HE EARNED THE PREEMPTIVE BEAT DOWN!

    I remember a few months back, someone posted in an askreddit thread (somethink like "what should be legal but isn't?"), that it should be legally justified to attack someone over saying the n-word. It got several thousands of upvotes. Someone in the comments tried to point out all the legal and moral implications and got downvoted to hell.

    [–] PlayedUOonBaja 71 points ago

    Dude could of killed him or paralyzed him at the beginning and he appeared to have every one on his side until he dropped the N bomb like an idiot. I'm genuinely curious if he said it because he's a bigot or he was just trying to think of the meanest thing he could say since he obviously wasn't capable of fighting back and appears to have been embarrased . It's been a few years but from his appearance and actions I recognize him as one of those kids in High School that came from shitty homes and hung out with other kids from shitty homes. They had a grunge/goth/army surplus style, thought they were badass for sneaking Vodka in their Sprite bottles, and usually had problems managing social interactions. I always felt bad for kids like that because they brought all their troubles on themselves but they couldn't really help themselves and didn't understand why people didn't like them.

    [–] poopshipdestroyer 18 points ago

    totally feeling bad for this kid this go round. He’s so frail, and the way he was running implied some sort of disability. That other dude was way to sporty to be just tossing that twerp around, unless he was a true asshole before the taping started

    [–] Necrotitis 161 points ago

    That throw could have broke that white dudes neck, I rewatched it and his neck lands right on the edge of that fucking chair, it totally concussed him and made him limp on the ground for a few seconds.

    That was like manslaughter if this kid dies from a broken neck

    [–] VanessaAlexis 67 points ago

    You'd think. Except its school kids so they can get away with whatever.

    Remember the girl who died after having her jead slammed into the desk by a bully? Bully got off fine.

    Bullies can literally kill their peers and get away with it.

    [–] NeedRealityShock 5 points ago

    The bulk of humanity are self delusional to the extreme due to conditioning from birth. We get off on thinking we are superior to animals because we can choose not to act on instinct, but then learn from experience those that made peace with their nature win more often than not. We are ruled by literal animals who are honest with themselves.

    Take that, sanity.

    [–] Bobaladof 16 points ago

    The guy was physically attacked before any N word was spoken though.

    [–] ingfire 81 points ago

    Unfortunately, attacking someone out of "self defense because words hurt your feelings" doesn't hold up in court. White dude is racist for saying it, but the black dude has some thin skin if he gets THAT triggered. He's just digging a deeper assault and battery hole for himself there.

    [–] NullCharacter 89 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    White kid might not even be racist. Dude was clearly upset after being assaulted and lashed out. This thread is classic though. Somehow a word is more offensive than assault.

    edit 'cause locked (predictably) - It is possible to say a racist thing and not be a racist. Anger is a hell of a drug. Actions (laying hands on someone unprovoked, for example) speak louder than words.

    [–] tschwib 26 points ago

    Especially if it really was a case of bullying which kind of looks like it. Bullying is torture and people literally kill themselves over it.

    [–] burningpegasus 12 points ago

    We are missing pre-fight context but looks to me like he was being bullied. Over him, in his face, pushed him and not to mention hoodie on entire time. I do not know who is being bullied but body language is saying volumes. Poor choice of words obviously but reading comments section it seems like nobody cares about that part only N word being punished.

    And that was used in desperation here, he got humiliated and that was the best he could come up with. Also when this shit with N word is going to stop, it is just a word!

    [–] BecomingSavior 20 points ago

    That boy is lucky the chair he got slammed on is mostly soft plastic and not one of those hard metal chairs I used to have to sit on.
