The boy, obviously wasn’t aware of what was going on. Someone the pranksters got him to strip down his boxers and instead of ice, poured a bucket of feces, urine, cigarette butts, and spit on him. The video was recorded on a phone and uploaded to Instagram. The family, though extremely upset, has chosen to share this video so others can see what has been done.

The boy’s mother, Diane, hopes the video will bring attention to the issue of bullying “I want these kids held accountable for what they did to him and they targeted somebody who just didn’t really understand what was going on,” she said, “The [Ice] Bucket Challenge is supposed to be raising awareness for this disease and now they’ve turned it into a sick joke.I just can’t understand why kids would do something this cruel.”

Celebrity, Jenny McCarthy decided to join Carey, and donate another $10,000. “That makes $20K!” she announced.

But the celebrity activism doesn’t stop there. Donnie Wahlberg has also chosen to front $10,000 as well.

Bay Village Superintendent, Clint Keener released a statement saying the school will also do it’s part to “take all appropriate action available to us in terms of disciplinary action once the investigation is complete.”

The town has also put together it’s efforts, hosting rallies and raising money for ALS and Autism Speaks.

The police are said to have a strong suspicion as to who the pranksters might be, but it could take weeks  to file charges.
