  1. If this video would have shown white hands forcing a young black girl into a painful situation, a claim of racism would have been made. Why would these young girls hold down someone who is obviously in severe pain and begging for it to stop?

  2. Some schools just want money not the kids to get good grades, like this one 'If you can do the splits then well force you to!' Just stupid some people are just horrible.

  3. As a competitive cheerleader even I agree this is wrong. This is how people get injured, ligaments and muscles are torn. Sometimes surgeries are needed to fix it and the effects of this can last a lifetime. If the coach was properly trained he would know not to do this. It disgusts and disappoints me that the coaches would do this. It's not something to be forced, it takes hours and hours of practicing and stretching to get to that point.

  4. You want to be that way then you got it. so, why do you complain? go home and to be a normal girl is the best. Go to N. Korea, Kim Jong Un will send you to the Kung Fu class before you joy to the fun.

  5. How the fuck is she gonna sit there and film that happening to her own kid? If that were me I wouldn't have been standing there like an idiot filming my own child being tortured! I'd have been whipping that coaches ass up and down the gym. Believe that!

  6. Lets abandon sports in high school all together, it is far too painful and demanding. Substitute it for walking in the garden and picking delicate flowers. Lol, punks and sports really do not go together, therefore, if you have low pain tolerance or afraid of a lil pain then you might want to stick to home-economic classes like baking. This dumb bitch had no place being in a gym class. China and Russia are laughing at the punk bitches coming our of Amx.

  7. NO. They assaulted her!! You don't put your hands on someone and FORCE them to do anything with THEIR BODY that THEY are not comfortable doing!! That is the definition of assault!!! It's NOT OKAY to BULLY further!! This CHILD is the victim already!!!

  8. Realize that the ones forcing her are non-white, if this was the other way around there would be riots and protest over this

  9. wtf when she say stop that mean stop not just keep going like put it this way if that were if the coach was on the ground and he was saying stop there just going to keep going like wtf maybe this worls is fuckin messed up anyway like wat the fuck people dont even use there Brian anymore like principal coach ir whoever the fuck lives there fuck go to hell and if i was there and i was one of the fuckin cheerleaders he would've been dead once i see them doing that like fuck u now let us try letting u do the splits mother fucker wat the hell u think u are like wtf people common sense👿👿

  10. What an idiot coach I been practicing for one year to do splits not all way there but it really hurts you have to stretch and train long time
