Boy bullied for carrying My Little Pony backpack

NORTH CAROLINA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Bruce Grayson says he's being bullied for carrying a My Little Pony backpack.

"They're taking it a little too far, with punching me, pushing me down, calling me horrible names, stuff that really shouldn't happen," said Grayson.

The North Carolina 9-year-old feels the cartoon emphasizes friendship to children.

But he says his interest is causing him to be bullied by his classmates, who tell him his favorite toy is for girls.

Now Grayson's school has asked him to leave his bag at home because officials feel it's a trigger for bullying.

His mom disagrees and feels the school needs to punish the bullies for their actions.
