If you’re against bullying, then you should know Benjamin’s this story.

Xavier proudly announced that he loves bullying Benjamin. He kicks Benjamin’s bag whenever he gets an opportunity and the table while poor Benjamin is writing. He also kicks the chair when Benjamin is sleeping and take pictures of him and make memes out of it.
They bully, Xavier, thinks that Benjamin is the fattest student in their school’s history. He claimed to have witnessed Benjamin finished off 3 sets of upsized McDonald’s Meal alone. And while Benjamin was eating, he and his friends went to disturb him. Xavier reminisce these moments and described it as ‘fun times.’
