Cassidy Lynn Campbell, the 16-year-old transgender student who was crowned homecoming queen on Friday, says some reaction on the Internet to her win has been negative.

The Huntington Beach, California Marina High School senior broke down crying when gold and blue balloons announced her as the winner during the school's homecoming football game.

“I think it really shows the progress of the times,” she told reporters afterwards.

But in a YouTube video posted the following day, Campbell said that some people reacted to her win with “negative and ignorant” remarks.

“Sometimes I wonder, is it even worth it; If I should just go back to being miserable, and just be a boy and hate myself and hate my life just so everyone can just shut up and leave me alone,” a tearful Campbell said in the nearly 9-minute video titled I should be so happy. “And I know I asked for this, I know I did. I know I wanted to run and I wanted to be nominated, but it's just so upsetting…”

“Because of my situation, I am just so hated on, just so judged. And I've had to deal with this my whole life, so I should know better by now. But I just wished for one day, for one day, I could just be happy and have everyone be happy for me, and it's never going to happen. … I just don't understand it.” (The video is embedded on this page.
