Wil Wheaton responds to bullies who pick on nerds
DENVER, Colo. (Derek Drake) -- "The truth is... It hurts," Wil Wheaton responds to a young audience member's question on bullying at the 2013 Denver Comic Con.
The video above was taken at the Denver Comic Con last year, but is going viral now after being picked up by social media and Reddit.
The video is of actor and writer Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation) responding to a question at a panel discussion from a little girl in the audience.
The little girl asks, "When you were a kid were you... Were you called a nerd, and if so, how did you deal with it?"
Wheaton's response to the little girl and how he describes those who bully is what's sending the video viral. "We don't choose to be nerds. We can't help it that we like these things. And we shouldn't apologize for liking these things."
