Karen Klein is a sixty eight year old widow and grandmother of eight. She is also a school bus monitor in New York.
A group of junior high boys taunted her on the bus earlier this week. They called her fat, asked her where she lives so they can urinate and defecate on her house, talked about stabbing her, asked her is she rapes little kids and told her that her family should kill themselves. Ms. Klein’s son committed suicide ten years ago, and that comment drove her to tears.
One of the boys recorded the whole incident, and put it on Facebook. It has gone viral, and people are reaching out to console Karen. People have donated more than $600,000 to sent Ms. Klein on vacation. You can see the comments on “Kindness for Karen“.
School officials are investigating the incident. Ms. Klein says she has no plans to quit her job. She simply wants an apology from the boys involved.
