LAUSD Kids to Watch Special Screening of 'Bully'
LAUSD kids will get schooled today in the serious consequences of bullying as 6,000 of them attend a screening of the movie "Bully" at the Nokia Theater this morning.
KTLA reports that the event, sponsored by the LA Fund, will also be attended by a couple of Disney stars (because how else would they get the youth to pay attention), Mayor Villaraigosa and LAUSD superintendent John Deasy.
The screening will be followed by a town hall discussion.
"Bully," a documentary that follows children who are tormented by their peers, has been in the news for months due to the ongoing dispute about its rating. The MPAA originally gave the film an R rating, meaning that kids wouldn't have been able to see it without their parents.
After the film's creators and a number of outspoken Hollywood types -- as well as some bullied kids from across the country -- actively protested the rating, the MPAA agreed to drop it to PG-13 in exchange for a few choice edits, which included eliminating several uses of curse words.
Today's screening will start at 10:00 a.m.
