According to a report out of Ohio, classmates of a teenage boy with autism had him perform the ice bucket challenge for ALS, but filled the bucket with urine, feces, spit and cigarette butts.
We can all agree the Ice Bucket challenge for ALS is a fantastic charity event that has raised money for an excellent cause, but it was just a matter of time before someone ruined it with a vile, cruel prank. If this story reported is true, I hope the teens involved get jail time. According to Pix11.com, classmates of a teen boy with autism lured him into taking the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS and instead of freezing water, filled the bucket with feces, urine, spit and cigarette butts. The teen boy’s parents discovered the video on his cell phone and reported it to local police. According to the 15-year-old boy’s mother, who does not wish to be identified, the classmates videotaped the incident and then posted it to Instagram. Police are now investigating with the cooperation of the school.
You can never underestimate the cruelty of teenagers, but there is something especially insidious about kids who thought taking a fun charity event and coming up with this repulsive plot — plus including a teen with autism in their plans — was a good idea. I’m hoping the parents of the teens involved are happy they raised such disgusting human beings, and I hope there is some sort of criminal punishment towards these jerks once the police complete their investigation. I have no idea what went through their minds when they decided to pull this prank, and I have no desire to. It’s some sort of Carrie mentality going on here, instead of pig’s blood substitution human waste. I feel so awful for this family and this young man. Watching the mom is heartbreaking, and I hope this family gets justice for this crime.
