He is only 12 years old, but Vlogger Theo Chen‘s rant against bullies has struck a major chord online, going viral with over 80,000 views in just a day. The video, titled "Gay", sees the opinionated student telling off anonymous posters who leave abusive and vulgar messages on his YouTube videos. In the video, Theo shares his feelings over getting bullied both online and in school by school mates who call him a ‘fag’ or ‘gay’ because he dances in his videos.

No stranger to controversial subject matter director Xavier Dolan’s work is always fierce and distinguished. And with his new music video for Indochine’s College Boy he’s causing a stir in France. The black-and-white video stars actor Antoine Pilon as a high-schooler bullied by his classmates. The video takes us from his tortured time in the classroom to his life at home where he acts out his more violent impulses in the comfort of his bedroom. Again we see him back in school where his peers continue to taunt him, beat him up, and urinate on his face—culminating in his being crucified and shot at in the school yard.

Dolan and Indochine are using these heavy images to make a strong statement about bullying and they seem to be more specifically making a point about homophobic bullying. However, French TV has already censored the video and it’s caused an outcry amongst other channels as well. Speaking to Le Figaro, Dolan responded to the video saying, "It seems absurd to me that the clip is censored. Is it really more violent than all the movies that arrive on our screens every day? The question shouldn’t be – did I go too far? It should be – what’s stopping a group of teenagers from going this far, given how powerful the gun lobby is in the U.S."
