BTS & Unicef’s Exclusive Global Campaign Video
BTS’s exclusive global campaign video focuses on students tortured by their fellows in and around school. The video starts with a school boy chased by five other students and one of them has a wooden stick in his hand. The next clip shows a student being beaten in basketball court. A female student is crying in a public washroom while trying to text someone. An African-American student is leaving the school building, crying.
These incidents happen everyday in the schools. Though the campaign started in 2017, recent incidents and murders prove we need this campaign the most right now. Violence is everywhere. From 17- Year old Instagrammer Bianca Devins’ murder to MS-13 gang’s victims in San Fernando, the murders and violence shock you to your core.
UNICEF and @bts_twt are calling on young people to spread kindness on #FriendshipDay with the release of a new exclusive video from the global super stars to help #ENDviolence in and around schools. Press Release: https://t.co/Bw7PZKFf8l https://t.co/R48qokmmlg
