Casey Heynes Tied To Pole With Duct Tape: Photos And Video

CASEY Heynes, Anorak’s Man of the Year who sparked a meme, for his apparent retaliation against one Ritchard Gale (not a typo) remains in the news. Ritchard’s mum, Tina, tells new media that her son’s a scrote who had it coming and the hard lesson will enable him to live a life of honour and positivity. Well, sort of. What she actually said was:

“We don’t need this posted everywhere. I would like him to apologise.”


“I was actually shocked because I always brought my three children up to walk away from fights…”


Says Casey’s dad:

“There’ll be reprisals from other kids in the school and he still has to go to school somewhere. He’s not a violent kid, it’s the first time he’s lashed out and I don’t want him to be victimised over that.”

Both parents seem to agree on one thing: the behaviour of both youths was out of character.

A classmate of Casey’s tells media:

“People pick on him every single day, they hit him around and stuff, and he just got sick of it and let out the anger.”

Says Casey Heynes on the telly:

“Two weeks prior to that he and others would come up to me and slap me across the back of the head and tease me and all of that. They said, ‘You’re a fatty’ and, ‘Lose some weight’.”


“They put duct tape over my eyes first and taped me to a pole.”

The last word is with his older sister Tiania:

“When I saw the video I said to him, ‘I know I shouldn’t be saying this, but high five!’ felt to me like he had defeated something that had been troubling him for years. He is a hero to other kids. He’s an icon.”

Not sure about that. But he is a meme…
