On Tuesday, the fast food chain released a commercial called "Bullying Jr." in honor of National Bullying Prevention Month.

The point of the experiment was to see if more people would report the bullies picking on the boy, or on the Whopper Jr.

Burger King has conducted a social experiment in a new PSA that lends poignant perspective to the bullying problem in this country. But few come to the aid of a boy who's being pushed and teased.

Burger King says the customers are real, but the bullies and victim were portrayed by actors.
