A California mayor's under fire for telling bully victims they "need to grow a pair" and to "just stick up for them damned selves."

Porterville Mayor Cameron Hamilton made the remarks at a city council meeting, while discussing safe zones for students to seek refuge from their tormentors.

His comments shocked and infuriated fellow council members, as well as gay rights advocates.

Hamilton only added fuel to the fire when he voted against the safety zones, saying they're too expensive and expose the city to lawsuits if they turned dangerous.
