Drew Carey offers $10K reward to find students who pranked boy with autism
BAY VILLAGE, Ohio -- Actor, comedian and game show host Drew Carey is responding on social media to the horrific ALS bucket challenge prank that left a boy with autism covered in feces and urine.
Carey, a Cleveland native, offered to donate $10,000 as either a reward to find the bullies or to autism advocacy organization Autism Speaks, he announced on Twitter.
Video of the unthinkable act was released at the request of the 15-year-old’s parents to raise awareness.
The autistic student thought he was taking the ice bucket challenge to join the thousands raising money for ALS research, but his classmates dumped a bucket of human waste and cigarette butts on him instead, his parents said.
The cruel prank has sparked outrage across the county.
