Here’s a little feel-good story to take you into the weekend.
South Carolina high school student Tae Moore noticed that another student was being bullied over his shoes.
“This kid go to our school named Eazy-T. He likes to rap and etc., he said he wants to be a rapper, just trying to chase his dream but kids at school like to bully him and pick on him and talk about the way he dresses and looks, so I went and bought him some Jordan’s,” Moore said partially in the post.
Tae Moore asked Taylor Bates (“Easy-T”) for his shoe size, and told him to meet back at the cafeteria the following day at the exact same spot. When Taylor showed up, Moore presented him with his own pair of Jordans.
In a follow up Instagram post, Taylor told his version of the story, thanking Moore for his kindness.
“He said, ‘I heard people have been bullying you, so I wanted to get you these to make you feel better, and when he said that I hugged him and I almost cried, and I cannot thank him enough.”

This guy's name is Tay, he goes to greenwood high school. Yesterday when I walked into the gym to get ready for lunch Tay asked me what size shoe I wear and I said "9, why", and he said "alright tomorrow I want you to show up at this exact spot, ok", and I said "alright man". Today when I went into the gym there was a small crowd of students around Tay who had a footlocker bag, when he saw me come in he pulled out a Jordan shoe box and he opened it and it had retro 1 jordans, and then he handed them to me saying "here you go man these are yours", at first I didn't know what he was talking about, but then he told his friends to put my book bag somewhere, while he laced my shoes, when they were on I asked him "I don't understand why are you giving me these", when he said "I heard people have been bullying you, so I wanted to get you these to make you feel better", and when he said that I hugged him and I almost cried, and I cannot thank him enough, and then he said "and if anybody bullying you, you let me know alright", and I said "thank you so much". #thereareawesomepeopleintheworld
