Toronto man raises $200K for elderly bus monitor bullied by students in viral video
Toronto’s Max Sidorov has never met Karen Klein, the 68-year-old bus monitor mercilessly bullied by schoolchildren in a viral video, but because of him, she’s poised to receive thousands of dollars to go on a luxury vacation.
The video, shot on a bus in Greece, New York, records middle school students peppering the grandmother with insults, calling her fat, taunting her for sweating and asking her if she has a sexually transmitted disease.
“I really felt almost heartbroken to see that people would do such a thing to a nice lady,” Mr. Sidorov, 25, said in an interview with the National Post. “So, I just thought I had to do something about it.”
