Bus monitor Karen Klein finally received apologies from the middle schoolers who bullied her. We’re definitely happy to hear that! Read on for more details.

Finally there’s a semi-happy ending to this heartbreaking story.

After a video of upstate New York bus monitor Karen Klein being verbally bullied by middle schoolers sparked outrage across the country, the kids have come forth with an apology.

“I am so sorry for the way I treated you,” one of the kids named Josh said in a statement released on Anderson Cooper’s show on June 21. “When I saw the video I was disgusted and could not believe I did that.”

Another Athena Middle School student, Wesley, said he feels bad.

“I wish I had never done those things,” he said in a statement. “If that had happened to someone in my family, like my mother or grandmother, I would be really mad at the people who did that to them.”

However the 68-year-old told Anderson she isn’t sure if their apologies are sincere.

“It’s a nice gesture, but I don’t know if it’s real or not,” she told Anderson. “It sounds too good to be true.”

The video of her being bullied is absolutely awful and heartbreaking. We sure hope their apologies are sincere and that this never, EVER happens again.
