A bullied boy stood up to his tormentor and made him publicly apologize after getting the backing of 100 Facebook strangers.

Halsey Parkerson was able to face up to his intimidator — who regularly told him he had no friends and no one cared about him — after his aunt launched a campaign on the social networking site.

KATU.com reports that the teen was having lunch with his relative at Salem High School in Oregon on Thursday when she heard him being taunted by his nemesis.

Furious after being told "it happens all the time," she wrote about the incident on Facebook.

Calling for her friends and car club members to come and help her nephew square up to the bully, more than 100 people showed up at the school the following day.

Rolling deep, Halsey walked up to the boy and demanded an apology. He promptly received it.

"I will now know that whenever I get bullied, I'll raise my head up and say, 'Sorry, I have too many friends to think I'm being bullied,'" Halsey told KATU.

"This is one glorious day," he added. "If you're being bullied, stand up and just express yourself."

Halsey revealed that his tormentor said he would "take the abuse back" and even gave him a high five before walking away.

"I got so much joy to know how many people really stand up and care for people being bullied," he added.
