Chris Jericho stepped up for his niece in a big way recently. The AEW star put an entire school system on blast by sharing a video of his niece being relentlessly bullied. She has now expressed her gratitude to her uncle for taking a stand.

Jericho called out the Hillsborough County Public School district in Florida for failing to act on the problem. The Wizard threatened to go to the local media about the issue if something was not done. Jericho meant business with his tweet, and his niece is thankful that he stood up for her.

“thank u uncle chris”

In the video, bullies can be seen pummelling Jericho’s niece. The AEW star could not believe that nothing was being done. A huge group of kids stood by as she was ruthlessly thrown down to the ground and pounded.


Having a former world champion for an uncle appears to be serving Jericho’s niece well. There is no doubt that local media would have a field day ripping the school apart. Fortunately, Chris Jericho is not a man to be trifled with.

Hopefully the school district finally takes action to sort the problem out. Bullying is a major problem that too often gets overlooked. Kudos to Chris Jericho for standing up to this ridiculous behavior.
