UPDATE: Hawaii's Department of Education told The Huffington Post that the department has investigated the claims made in the video against the elementary school by Joshua Alameda Franklin, but found no official reports of bullying were made by Franklin, his sons or teachers. After Joshua Alameda Franklin, a gay father of two, found out that his 9-year-old son had been harassed, choked, and slammed to the ground during an after school program, he decided enough was enough. Franklin says he needed his community on the Big Island of Hawaii to know that violence and bullying his children over his sexual orientation should not be accepted, so he created the YouTube video above. His oldest son has also been bullied because Franklin is gay, the family says, noting year-old Alae'a had to switch elementary schools after continuous harassment from other students. In the video, Alae'a describes one incident in which a student slammed his face to the floor and gave him a black eye. Franklin says he alerted a teacher about the assault, but no official action was taken against the bully.
