Bullied Bus Monitor Update
Remember Karen Klein? She's the bus monitor that was tormented and bullied on camera to the point of tears. An outpouring of support from total strangers raised thousands so she could retire or take a vacation and now here's what she's going to do with the money.
Karen Klein says that she's going to take 100 thousand dollars of the 700 thousand dollars that was raised to start the Karen Klein Anti-Bullying Foundation.
She said she thought that starting the foundation would be an excellent resource for bullying victims. Karen told the Today Show that it's not just for kids. Karen says, "When you’re a kid being bullied, you should talk to an adult. When the adult is being bullied, I don’t know who the heck they can talk to. That’s why I want to help.’’
Karen says she never intended to be a spokesperson against bullying, but embraced her new role after the 10 minute video of her being tormented by the kids on the bus went viral. Karen says she had no clue they were taking the video as they were hurling insults, curse words and slurs at her, but she says she's glad it happened.
Karen hits the road for the No Bully Tour with the new Miss Teen USA Logan West October 5.
