13-year-old Pennsylvania teen Nadin Khoury received an incredible surprise when he appeared on “The View” today.
Nadin was recently beaten by several classmates in a bullying attack caught on video tape. After the interview, three members of Nadin’s favorite football team, the Philadelphia Eagles, came on the program to meet him.
If you’re unfamiliar with the teen’s story, Nadin was kicked, dragged through the snow and then hoisted into a tree, allegedly by six classmates. When he tried to get away, he was hung by his coat on a metal fence. And if that isn’t all shocking enough, one of the accused students actually videotaped the attack on his cell phone.
During “The View” interview, Nadin said he was bullied because of his size and because his mother is African-American and speaks with an accent. “I was scared for my life,” he said.
After the interview, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson, center Jamaal Jackson and Todd Herremans came to meet Nadin.
Jackson had this to say about his bravery: “You’re brave, because this happens every day and people are not brave enough to stand up and take this on. Anytime ever you need us, I’ve got two linemen right here … my boys are ready to come down,” Jackson then took the jersey off his back, signed it, and gave it to the teen. He even made him an honorary member of the Eagles.
While I was already a fan of DeSean’s, he’s even more incredible now in my book! You can see for yourself on this video.
