Katy Butler

A Michigan 17-year old, Katy Butler has begun a petition drive to convince the MPAA Rating Board to change the “R” rating that it has given Bully.  As of early April, 2012, the Change.org petitionhad garnered over 500,000 signatures and lots of public interest from celebrities such as Meryl Streep, Drew Brees, and Ellen DeGeneres.

WIVP worked closely with the filmmakers and the Sioux City Community School District during the making of the film.
