As a 16-year-old, a sophomore student at Lebanon High School in Tennessee was understandably blown away when a video she posted to YouTube quickly surpassed 150,000 views.
Emily Gipson recorded a free flowing, anti-bullying rant in one of the classrooms of her school after hours, then publishing it online.
Before recording the video, she recieved permission from two employees at the school, who are both coaches.
“I did record it after school hours,” Gipson said. “I did have permission by the teacher. It was a coach and another coach, and I approached them."
She was just trying to get her message out, and really didn't think much would come out of it, and she really didn't expect to get in trouble because of it.
