Tyler Wilson on the set of 'Hellcats'11-year-old Ohio native Tyler Wilson became national news back in September when he was bullied at school for wanting to be a cheerleader. Apparently the other kids thought that was worthy of a beating that led to a broken arm for Tyler.

Bullying certainly isn't a new issue in schools, but it's getting more attention lately, as big-name celebrities are speaking out against it.

When Tyler's story made headlines, the cast of The CW's 'Hellcats' made a PSA reminding kids that it's their right to be whatever they want to be; they even invited Tyler to the show's set to see some tough TV cheerleaders, male and female, in action.

AOL TV is proud to share this exclusive behind-the-scenes video of Tyler's visit to Vancouver, including anti-bullying messages from stars Aly Michalka, Matt Barr, Heather Hemmens and Robbie Jones; Tyler learning some moves from the show's choreographer; and a sneak peek of the scenes he got to be a part of in this week's episode, 'Before I Was Caught' (airs Tuesday, April 26, 9PM ET on The CW).
