Chris Jericho wants action to be taken after a family member was assulted on camera.
The AEW star took to Twitter Sunday night to share a video clip of his niece getting bullied by kids at Mulrennan Middle School in Valrico, FL.
Jericho informed that his niece had “been incessantly bullied for months” and that the school had taken no action despite repeated pleas from his family.
“Hey @HillsboroughSch- My niece has been incessantly bullied at #MulrennanMiddleSchool for months. Despite my families pleas, nobody did anything to help…and this was the result a few days ago. If u won’t take action, I’d love to discuss this on @abcactionnews & @wfla ANYTIME!”
Jericho added in a message to TMZ Sports that his niece is “physically ok. But mentally she’s hurting.”
“She’s scared to go to school,” the 51-year-old wrestler said. “This could’ve been avoided as the family approached the school a few times prior but nothing was done.”
“We need to spread awareness so that the schools do a better job of protecting our kids mental health and safety. ALL kids. Not just the ones with famous uncles.”
