GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Hollywood made its way to Greenville Thursday night through a free screening of the new Bully movie.

The parents of one of the victims, Tyler Long, mentioned in the movie also came out to the screening.

Tina and David Long told FOX Carolina they hope kids and parents take a positive message about bullying from the movie. 

"We fought for our son Tyler when he was alive and we are going to continue to fight for him even after his death to hopefully save other children," Tina Long said.  

The event was held at the Empowerment Zone in Greenville and sponsored by Upstate Bully Advocate Traci Fant of Think Twice.
