A shocking video has emerged showing a raging driver cruelly throwing a young boy off a schoolbus – but there’s a twist.
The footage shot in the US shows the boy wearing a parka jacket with his hood up being hurled on to a pavement with a rucksack on his back as the driver screams “get off the bus, get off the f**king bus”.
An outraged woman passing the schoolbus flies to his defence and pushes the driver saying “he’s just a f**kin kid”.
As other witnesses rush to the child’s aid a man brings the boy to his feet before a woman shrieks “that’s not a kid”.
The ‘boy’ takes off his hood and it turns out he’s an adult with dwarfism.
The video has had almost 100,000 likes and 28,000 retweets on Twitter with people wondering if it was a genuine incident or a prank.
@4everNeverTrup said: “I mean… I’m going to assume that the adult pretending to be a child did something to be aggressively thrown off the bus.”
Many of them praised the woman who intervened.
@DarinMorris5 tweeted: “Love the woman running to the “kids” defense. If she was part of it she deserves an award and if she wasn’t part of it she deserves a different award”
@FredTJoseph tweeted: “There’s so much going on. But first and foremost, shout out to the first young woman ready to fight for what we all thought was a child.”
However others believed the footage was staged.
@Burniedankers said: “The cinematography is absolutely outstanding. The script is perfectly escalating. Just when you think you cant be any more on the edge of your seat, it goes the extra mile. And the performances are beautifully acted. Truly the best movie of the year,5 stars.”
@TomPaineToday commented: “Is that real? it feels like a bit for a tv show.”
@KitalaLaris tweeted: “Lol It’s a skit, they rented the bus and paid a few people to act as confused bystanders.”
Whether the 39 second clip its genuine or not is unknown but it’s certainly sparked a debate on social media.
