Bullies can be ruthless. They often have a “hole” in their life that they try to fill with attacks on other people that boost their self-esteem. They like to pick on people deemed weaker than them. Bullies don’t want to pick on someone who fights back – they want a target that’ll roll over and take the violence. But, a cheerleader from California proved that she was not someone who should be messed with in a video that has since emerged.

“Nobody wants to fight,” the cheerleader tells the bully, who is another female, in the footage. “No one wants to fight with you guys.”

However, the bully was not about to roll over eighter. The instigator really wanted to fight that day, so the bully threw a punch at the cheerleader, hitting her in the face. The attack left the cheerleader reeling, but it did not knock her out of the fight.

In a matter of moments, the cheerleader regains her footing and launches her own attack on the bully. She throws one punch and then another, followed by a slew of other punches that eventually knock the bully – who is larger than the cheerleader – to the ground in victory.

With the bully knocked to the ground, the cheerleader knew that she had to finish things. She mounted the bully and began throwing more punches until she eventually subdued the larger girl and made her feel the pain of instant karma for throwing the first punch in an unnecessary fight.

The cheerleader’s older sister, Sierra Sprague, recorded the brawl and uploaded a clip of her sister besting the bully to Twitter.

“So my little sister got in a fight tonight, and I don’t think I’ve ever been more proud, with her phone in her hand & everything. Lmao THATS MY MF SISTER, LETS GOOOOOOO.”

After the fight went viral on Twitter, Sierra addressed people’s concerns about her sister having to deal with school authorities since she was in school uniform. However, Sierra told people on Twitter that her younger sister did not have to face any disciplinary action as a result of the fight with the bully.

Daily Mail readers shared the following comments about the brawl:

“What frustrates me here is that there are all these people around, and no one had the guts to step in before it came to this. People almost never stand up when they see something that is wrong anymore.”

“The aggressor thought she was tougher because she was bigger. Not the case.”

The moral of this story is that you should never judge a book by its cover. Just because someone appears to be weak or helpless, it does not mean that they do not have the strength to fight back when push comes to shove – as this cheerleader so perfectly proved. So, next time you’re thinking about picking on someone, think twice. You never know what they’re capable of – no matter how small or unassuming they may seem.
