* According to NME.com, a Chilean TV station recently aired footage of a group of emos being attacked by skinheads.
* Several Peruvian bloggers have observed how the media tends to look down on emos including a “sketch of false cases” for a comedy program.
* A fifteen-year-old student was attacked and stabbed by a pair of his schoolmates in Bogota, Colombia. According to the mother of the victim, he was assaulted for being an emo:
“He dressed and had hair just like an emo. They said that he should stop being a chicken and fight like a man. But he always said that he wasn’t interested in arguing.” - [ed. Personal translation]
