LOS ANGELES - A teen activist has collected more than 200,000 signatures in an effort to change the R rating of the teen-focused documentary "Bully," but she says the Motion Picture Association of America doesn't want to make the change.
The 17-year-old Katy Butler met Wednesday with MPAA officials and delivered four boxes of papers containing the signatures she collected online. She is urging the organization to change the film's rating from R to PG-13 so more young people can see it.
"Bully" follows five young bullying victims and their experiences during the school year.
Joan Graves of the MPAA says that though "Bully" is a "wonderful film," the organization's primary responsibility is to provide information to parents about films' content. "Bully" earned an R rating because of its use of profanity.
