The uproar of #NoToBullying and #NeverTolerateBullying campaigns and posts erupted on social media after a video of a junior high school student assaulted another student. The said bully cornered the student in a comfort room and punched him in the nose which started bleeding.

Organizations condemn bullying.

Joaquin has a black belt in Taekwondo which he uses in harassing other students. In a recent statement, Philippine Taekwondo Association condemned “any form of misbehavior which includes harassment, bullying, and acts of violence.”

Malacañang even spoke up about the issue and expressed their concern about the incident. Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo urged Ateneo to investigate.

“I think they should investigate why there was such a one-sided fight given the fact that the one who mauled was much smaller… Dapat talaga imbestigahan. The school should investigate and do something about it.”
