Gawker – Karen Klein, the Greece Central School District bus monitor who was verbally abused by four vicious middle school children, capped a day of interviews with nearly every major news outlet by appearing on last night’s Anderson Cooper 360. On the show, Cooper read aloud the first statements of contrition issued by two of the boys involved in the June 18th incident. “I am so sorry for the way I treated you,” wrote one of the 13-year-olds, identified as Josh. “When I saw the video I was disgusted and could not believe I did that. I am sorry for being so mean and I will never treat anyone this way again.” Klein refused to accept Josh’s apology, saying “of course he’s going to say anything,” and noting that Josh is a serial troublemaker. “I just don’t think I would believe anything Josh can say,” she said. Klein rejected a similar apology statement from Wesley, another one of the four culprits, and said she is still waiting on real apologies but is not holding her breath. She did tell Cooper she didn’t believe the boys were bad kids, “not deep down,” but still felt they should be made to understand the severity of their actions, whether through suspension from sports for a year or through community service. Cooper then brought up the “vacation fund” set up for Klein by 25-year-old Toronto-based nutritionist Max Sidorov, which currently stands at nearly half a million dollars in donated funds. Though Sidorov said he will ensure the money will make its way directly to Klein, the 68-year-old remains skeptical. “I can’t believe it,” she said. “That much? I don’t know, I just don’t feel like it’ll come to me anyway, so I don’t think too much about it. It’s a nice gesture, but I just don’t know if it’s for real or not.”
Enough is enough. I can’t take it anymore with this fucking broad. Her donations are up over half a million dollars. People are offering her free trips to Disneyland. And now she’s holding a grudge and won’t even accept an apology from these 13 year old idiots and wants them suspended from the bus for a year. Hey Karen grow the fuck up babe. You’ve got HALF A MILLION DOLLARS coming your way all because some kids made fun of you. There are goddam fundraisers for double amputee veterans of war that won’t even raise a fucking fraction of that kind of money. There are probably Make A Wish kids out there who’s dying wish is now to become a fucking bus monitor so that they can get made fun of and get millions of dollars and free shit from everyone after the fact. You endured a few minutes of “you’re fat” jokes for an incredible amount of money you absolutely don’t deserve. This is the best fucking thing that has ever happened to you.
