Police are looking into attacks on ginger kids in Canada, after an “anti-ginger” group was set up on Facebook. It seems as if the group was inspired by the South Park episode about ginger kids. The group promoted an event called “National Kick a Ginger Day”, which led to several kids being beaten up at school. The attacks are being viewed as hate crimes because they were only targeted at redheads.
One student was quoted as saying, “I have a few buddies with red hair, you just kind of kick them lightly just as a joke but when it gets carried away that’s not cool.” So, apparently the consensus it’s only ok to lightly kick your ginger mates – anything beyond that is unacceptable.
