11 year old boy beat up for being a cheerleader
Tyler Wilson likes to cheer. Tyler, a sixth grader in Findlay, Ohio, expected to get teased by some of his classmates once they found out he had joined the cheer squad over the summer. But he did not expect a broken shoulder and bruises.
Tyler’s mother, Kristy Wilson, is angry after a couple of kids beat up her 11-year-old son. She says they allegedly beat him up because he’s a cheerleader.
Tyler Wilson joined a cheerleading team in a league separate from his school. He’s the only boy on the team, but some of his classmates play football for that same league.
“They were saying I was a sissy cheerleader and called me a queer and stuff like that,” Tyler said.
