A video of U.S. teens — produced by an Emmy-winning team — reacting to Canadian teen Amanda Todd's heart-wrenching story on YouTube has reignited the bullying debate.

"That's really f*cked up," said 16-year-old Adam while watching the first few minutes of Todd's video that chronicles years of online and physical bullying.

"I would try to help if I had a chance to," said 16-year-old DJ.

Last month, Todd's suicide shone an international spotlight on bullying. On Sunday, hundreds gathered in her hometown of Port Coquitlam, B.C. to celebrate the teen, just days before what would have been her 16th birthday.

The video was produced by Los Angeles-based production team, The Fine Brothers. Benny and Rafi Fine are behind YouTube's successful "Teens React" series and decided to interview 11 teens about their reactions to Todd's video for their 100th episode.

"Teens React to Bullying (Amanda Todd)" has already reached over 500,000 views since it was uploaded Sunday.
