Zach Huston, the 15-year-old Ohio gay teen whose beating was caught on video and posted on Facebook, says school officials asked him to tone it down after the incident.

The video, captured by another student with a cell phone, shows a teen waiting for his victim in a classroom at Union-Scioto High School in Chillicothe, approximately an hour south of Columbus. When Huston arrives, he is repeatedly beaten as other students stand by and watch.

In an interview with WBNS, Huston said school officials blamed him for the attack.

“He basically said, 'There's a few gay kids in school and you're the only one they have problems with. So, what can you do to tone yourself down?'” he said.

While officials say the bully was reprimanded, they have refused to share any details.

The Ohio chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced it was representing the teen and is considering possible legal action against the district.

“The school district should have protected [Huston] and they failed,” James Hardiman of the ACLU of Ohio said. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
