The parents of the infamous "Star Wars Kid" are suing classmates who posted a humiliating video of their son on the Net, according to Canada's Globe and Mail.

 

Quebec teenager Ghyslian Raza was the target of worldwide mockery when a private video he made of himself practicing his lightsaber moves was uploaded to the Net by kids at his school.

 

Now his parents are claiming damages of $160,000 from the families of the four classmates who digitized and published the video. Ghyslain's parents claim their son was so humiliated, he is undergoing psychiatric care and may be marked for life by the experience.

 

Ghyslain's video was posted to the Kazaa file-sharing network in the spring. The two-minute video shows an overweight teenager fighting a mock battle with a golf-ball retriever doubling as a lightsaber. The teenager twirls the "lightsaber" ever more energetically while generating his own sound effects. It is obviously not for public consumption.

 

Ghyslain was so teased about the video, he dropped out of school and finished the semester at a children's psychiatric ward, according to a lawsuit filed in the Raza's hometown of Trois-Rivières, Quebec.

 

According to the suit, "Ghyslain had to endure, and still endures today, harassment and derision from his high-school mates and the public at large." He "will be under psychiatric care for an indefinite amount of time." The suit suggests that the ordeal may cause Ghyslain to be labeled as "mentally ill," and the stigma could make it difficult for him to enroll in school or get a job, and may force him to change his name.

 

Ghyslain's story was reported by media outlets internationally. Angered at the cruel remarks made about Ghyslain online, a pair of webloggers raised money to buy the teenager an Apple iPod.

 

Andy Baio of Waxy.org and Jish Mukerji of Jish.nu raised more than $4,300 from 421 separate donations. "The outpouring of support has been staggering, far beyond what I ever expected," wrote Baio on his site. "Geeks like us need to stick together."

 

A petition to get Ghyslain a part in the next Star Wars movie has been signed by more than 16,000 people.

 

None of the parties involved in the suit are speaking to reporters, according to the Globe and Mail. Wired News was unable to contact the Razas' lawyer for comment.

Yeah, but the kid's only 15 and likely a social outcast, IF. I certainly wasn't very sure of myself at 15, and something on this scale would have kicked my emotion's and ego's ass all over the place. I just don't think the kid can laugh at himself on a scale this large, which I find understandable.

see this is whats wrong with kids today. what the fuck, have any of you seen where someone started a paypal account and the money went to buying this kid an ipod? last time i read about it, he got alot more money that what the ipod costs and they sent him loot too. if he was smart, he'd make that shit into a dvd and really get paid, i wouldnt be surprised if he tried to blame it on george lucas in the end. we have all done stupid shit in our lives, if i would have known i could have got an ipod and money out of it, i would have uploaded it to a million servers on hotline, kazaa, limewire, and anywhere else that would host.

 

one greedy bastard.

there's something weird going on with all

these fucking fat ass kids these days..

i wonder when letting your kid become

a couch potato-video-game-addict-blob

with no social skills and zero self confidence

enters the sphere of child abuse.
