When Do Pranks Become Bullying

  • When do pranks cross the line to become bullying?
    Pranks cross the lines to bullying when other people are psychically or emotionally being harmed due to the nature of the prank. In the case of the two football players Jonathan Martin was emotionally being harmed from some of the things being said to him therefore it has gone on too long. Pranks shouldn't turn into harmful things, they should just be done for a few laughs.
    • Have you ever been the victim of a prank that felt more hurtful than funny?
      I can honestly say I've never been a victim of a prank that that felt more hurtful than funny. This is coming from a kid who got milk dumped over his head in middle school. I cannot relate to what Jonathan Martin is feeling because I've never been a victim of such a harmful prank. 
      • Have you ever committed a prank that might have crossed a line? Did you apologize or feel regretful?
        I have committed a prank that may have crossed the line but I never actually hurt anyone. I didn't call anyone names, I didn't physically hurt anyone. The person honestly just took it too far and got pretty heated about it. I did apologize but the person didn't accept my apology but I don't feel regretful for the prank.
