Student stabbed over his shoes stands up to bullying with his favorite rapper

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The Colorado Springs student who was put in the hospital with a collapsed lung after being stabbed in the hallway at school got a special surprise Friday.

Kyler Davila met his favorite rapper, Lil’ Flip.

Flip heard what happened to Kyler and what he’s doing now to prevent bullying, and knew he had to meet him while he’s in town for a show.

Kyler said he gets bullied because he can’t wear regular shoes, so he’s now collecting shoes to give to other kids who also get bullied for the shoes they wear.

“I had three pairs of shoes donated to me, because I was being bullied about my shoes and I really liked the feeling and I didn’t want other kids to get bullied because of their shoes and I wanted other kids to have that same feeling, so I started collecting them for other kids,” Kyler said.

Lil’ Flip said he’s going to give Kyler a bunch of shoes from his shoe line, so that he can do just that.
