Myckelle Williams received a phone call from her daughter Lulu recently.


The teen was "screaming and crying on the phone" and wanted her mum to collect her from school.


According to a post shared on Facebook, bullies viciously pulled Lulu's wig off her head, causing "abrasions and whiplash" - all for a fiver bet. 


A video of the incident was then posted on social media.



The 16-year-old suffers from a scalp condition that causes dryness and hair breakage, and wears a wig to make her feel better.  


"Lulu has a scalp condition that causes severe dryness and hair breakage and loss, and had been so ashamed of her appearance that she had taken to wearing wigs in an effort to still feel beautiful," Myckelle wrote on Facebook.


"We all know how easy it is to feel insecure at age 16."


"These kids not only tore her wig off in the middle of school, but video taped it.


"They followed her to the bathroom as she screamed and cried and proceeded to tape her OVER the stall as she cried and begged for her wig."



Rather than let the bullies win, Lulu decided to take back control and so shaved the rest of her hair off - something her mum is incredibly proud of. 


"Lulu later decided to shave her hair off and not let these bullies win," the mum continued. 


"She was not wanting to feel controlled by her hair any longer, and take back her control. I am only posting this with her permission but yesterday our entire family was angered and in tears about the way she was treated."



Following the incident, Lulu's mum wants to encourage parents to tell their teen that they are strong and beautiful. 


"Teen suicide rate has now DOUBLED and bullying has played a HUGE role," she wrote. 


"If you have a teen in this situation, continue to uplift them and let them know that they are strong and beautiful and can own their insecurities and take control rather than being controlled.


"I admire the strength and beauty of my little Lulu and know that she will inspire many others even through this difficult time in her life."


What an inspirational young woman.
