Boy bullied for wearing same clothes to school, gets new wardrobe from classmates

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (KWCH) A freshman in Tennessee said his first few weeks of high school were a nightmare because he was being bullied for wearing the same clothes every day.

He was bullied over his clothes. So classmates stepped in.

Two football players noticed and decided to help out.

Michael Todd said his mom doesn't have the money to buy him clothes and he gets made fun of because he wears the same outfit every day.

An upperclassman noticed Michael getting made fun of one day. He said he felt terrible. So, he enlisted the help of his friend.

"He wasn't smiling or anything and I was like I think this is going to make you smile," said Kristopher Graham. "I told him we're in the same third period and I apologize for laughing at you and I want to give something to you to make it up."

Graham said he and his friend went through their closets, made a trip to the store, and surprised Michael with a new wardrobe this Monday at school.

"You guys are the best guys of my entire life," said Michael.

The upperclassman said their goal was to put an end to bullying in their school and inspire others to help those in need.

Now, people from across the country heard about their act of kindness and offered to send the freshman even more clothes.
