An English-speaking man in Lithuania asked Lithuanian-speaking people to translate a message for him. According to the video, he found the message on Facebook, yet he could not understand its meaning in Lithuanian. After enlisting the help of a select few who could also speak English, he got some unsettling responses based on the nature of the message. Practically everyone was hesitant to read it, and some even looked like they wanted to cry.
This is all part of a social experiment ran by Svetima Geda to witness how various people would react to a cyber-bullying message. Svetima Geda provides advice on how to handle racial and homophobic discrimination (in Lithuanian) on their website. Check out the video for yourself!
