Karen Klein, School Bus Monitor, Harassed By Mean Kids; Internet Responds With Paid Vacation

by at . Comments

This video encapsulates the best and worst of human behavior.

Yesterday, the world got to see a group of idiot 12-15 year-old kids verbally abusing a 69-year-old bus monitor in Greece, N.Y. named Karen Klein.

Like, really badly. To the point that she cried.

The worst comment one kid made? "You are so ugly, your kids should kill themselves." Klein's son apparently did take his own life 10 years ago.

Depressing as it gets. But now, the redeeming part.

According to Mashable, irate users on Reddit, 4chan, YouTube and elsewhere decided to support Klein ... and not by offering bullying services to give the kids a taste of their own medicine (although we'll get to that in a moment).

Not even 24 hours later, more than $9,000 has been raised online to send the harassed Karen on the vacation of a lifetime! How great is that?

Enjoy it, Karen ... and get ready to reap what you sowed, kids.

There's already a Facebook group dedicated to opposing them, and local police are considering stationing officers outside their homes for fear of retribution.

UPDATE, 6/22: Klein has received a staggering $440,000 in donations - not a typo - and more importantly, an apology from two of the bullies.

My kids would be spitting their teeth out!!! I know that kids behave different when away from their parents BUT doing that is completely wrong!!! Its not just the `parents` fault though, its society as a whole! Look how crupt our world is, I know I may get some `heat` for this comment, but I dont care.


Cant believe these kids are supposed to be our future, see what happens when you take corporal punishment out of schools?


WHO raises kids like this?!?! I am shocked that children would talk to anyone like that, much less an elderly woman.Yeah, the police probably should station officers outside the houses of these kids. I'll bet there are a lot of people who want to beat the hell out of those little punk ass bitches, and that is exactly what they are. Anyone who can only feel good about themselves by making an elderly woman cry is nothing but a little bitch.


What kind of people raised those little ignorant beast... You see most likely they have parents who will not force there children to take responsibiliy for those nasty actions. We as a society are raising or allowing very violent children to thrive. Parents do not expect them to have any consequences. Many times there parents are just as bad and show the same disreguard for authority and respect to other humans. Gone is kindness, compassion, empathy, and respect with the new generations...


Fuckin' snot nosed ghetto porch monkeys. Those are kids that will end up in jail and/or prison.


this is just awful. how rude can you be if your are disrespecting an ELDER??!! these kids deserve to be expelled


I want to be a bus monitor for that school. I'll be the fuck out of the little shit heads, even if I would end up in jail. I hope that there is a way to get back at them,


Where Is the bus driver?


These kids should kill themself


Lindsay--there are mean people everywhere. If he does extracurriculars, eventually a bully will cross his path. Sad world we live in. If this bus monitor had disciplined these little dears, she would be reprimanded. What kind of brat would feel good watching her cry. Sickening!
