DAYTON, Ohio — A girl who donated 14 inches of her hair to “Wigs for Kids” says she is being bullied at her school.
WHIO reports Jetta Fosberg decided to cut her long hair and donate it for a good cause. But after getting it cut, the girl wanted it a little bit shorter, and that’s when things changed.
Jetta’s mother, Heidi, told WHIO that children at Jetta’s school told her she was ugly and said she must want to be a boy.
When the mother approached the principal about the bullying, Fosberg said, “He told me that he didn’t know of any child that had ever died from words, and that we needed to toughen up and deal with it, and he would deal with it how he saw appropriate which was obviously not the response we were looking for.”
The family has set up a Facebook page to support their daughter.
