DeSean Jackson supports bullying victim

New, comments

Philadelphia Eagles players DeSean Jackson, Todd Herremans and Jamaal Jackson made a surprise visit on "The View" today to show their support for Nadin Khoury, a 13-year-old student set upon last month by seven teenagers who beat him and hung him from a tree while one of them videotaped it.

Khoury said he was beaten because he is small and his mother is originally from Africa. I have seen no mention that sexual orientation was an issue here, but bullying is horrific regardless of who it is directed at. Jackson and his teammates made a surprise visit while Khoury and his mom were on "The View," with Jackson literally giving the youngster the jersey off his back. It's quite touching. Video:
