Tormented Elderly Bus Monitor Gets $124k in Donations from Outraged Supporters [VIDEO]

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — More than $120,000 has been raised online for an elderly upstate New York bus monitor who was cruelly taunted and verbally abused by students.

The incident was captured in a 10-minute video posted to YouTube showing 68-year-old Karen Klein trying her best to ignore the stream of profanity, insults and outright threats directed at her.

“Why is there water on your face?” one passenger taunts in the video.

Klein responds, “Because I’m crying.”

The passengers then cruelly continue delivering jeers, profane insults and humiliating insults.

By early Wednesday, the video had gone viral.

Klein told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle that she “was just trying to ignore them and hope they would go away.”

The Greece bus monitor didn’t report the incident, but school officials notified police when they learned of it. An investigation has been launched.

By Thursday morning, the international crowd funding site Indiegogo.com had raised more than $124,000 to send the grandmother on a vacation.
