The internet is buzzing this morning after the release of a video of teenage girls beating up a 15 year old girl in a Brooklyn McDonald’s. And while the fight happened, nobody tried to break it up and save the teen.
According to sources, the teen and her attackers who are believed to be in a vicious crew called, Young Savages from Crown Heights were going to straighten out their differences in the restaurant. In the video that was shot during the fight, the teen from Erasmus Hall High School threw the first punch which led to the fight. As the fight grows, many other teenage girls jump in and begin punching, kicking and slapping the girl. But the teen doesn’t back down and fights her attackers even stripping one of her hoodie.
As the teen is being beaten, nobody tries to break up the fight. One onlooker is heard saying, “She is dead, It’s a murder.” Some people can be heard cheering on the vicious attack. After the fight, the teen was hospitalized Monday night for two black eyes and multiple bruises. The teen had to be rushed to SUNY Downstate Medical Center Wednesday night after collapsing in her home.
The police are having a hard time identifying the teens because nobody wants to come forward and reveal who they are. The victim and her mother do not want to cooperate with authorities. Wednesday night, activist Tony Herbert spoke for the teen to not be afraid and help the authorities to bring the names of those who attacked her.
“We are asking that young lady to not be afraid.” said Herbert. Herbert also sent a message to the teens in the video,
“We have pictures. We have video of all these individuals. So save the taxpayers money and bring yourself forward.”

–UPDATE: According to this New York Daily News report, the victim, 15-year old Ariana Taylor, took to her Facebook account yesterday to brag about her newfound fame. She was met with rousing support from some, but sympathy and disappointment from others, who attempted to make it clear to the Brooklyn teenager that the reason she’s been in headlines nationwide is a regrettable one.
