It's a well known the fact that YouTube is one of the technologies which attract all kinds of clips, no matter if they are created by experts or by ordinary users with webcams or mobile phones. Every time a registered member uploads something which is prohibited on YouTube, the matter becomes a little bit more serious. A recent video showing a schoolgirl fight in the locker room has some unexpected consequences for the main 'actors' as the clip was broadcast on TV. Katelind Lewis, 13-year-old now, but only 12 when the video was recorded, said she was embarrassed after the clip appeared on YouTube and she didn't want to go to school anymore.

"I didn't want to go to school at all. I was just scared what people would be saying to me. I don't even remember the whole fight because I was, like, blacked out. It's awful, you don't what to think when you see it. It's like, 'My gosh, I can't believe that's me'" Katelind said for WLWT Cincinnati. "Some people are like, 'Ha-ha, you got beat up,' and some people are like, 'My gosh, you got beat up?'"

Obviously, the video was already removed from Google's video sharing technology and the violent schoolgirl was sent to the juvenile court. In addition, she was already suspended from school for one week. However, Katelind's family was pretty outraged by the clip even if the video sharing service already removed it.

"She was just embarrassed and humiliated to the point where she felt that she could not tell us about it. It's just upsetting, it's just really, really upsetting. Your peers' opinions mean so much to you at that age, and it hurts me that she's hurting, and that she's actually afraid to go back to school", Katelind's sister (Shawna Wright) said for WLWT Cincinnati.
