California Mayor Tells Bullied to “Grow a Pair”

One California Mayor is facing some backlash after making comments that have been called “controversial” about bullying in schools.

“I mean, I am against bullying, but I am getting damn tired of it being used as a mantra for everything that ills the world when all most people have to do is a grow a pair and stick up for them damn selves.”

Porterville, California Mayor Cameron Hamilton made the controversial comments during a city council meeting where an initiative to establish off-campus safe zones citywide for teens who are being bullied after school was brought up.
