The family of a Texas girl are shocked that a video showing a sickening attack on their daughter has gone viral, being viewed more than 12 million times.

The girl is a victim of a king-hit attack, but the beating continues and she is kicked while on the ground.

The video shows ShaMichael Manuel, 17, being attacked by a schoolmate named Sharkeisha.

Local police a girl has been arrested and charged with assault with bodily injury.

ShaMichael's family told Houston's KHOU-TV that the fight started because of a dispute over a boy.

"The video's just going and going," ShaMichael 's mother, Olevia Henderson, told KHOU-TV

"They're making jokes, and they're taunting. They're glorifying the girl Sharkeisha, but they're taunting my daughter at the same time."

ShaMichael told KHOU-TV she was lured to an apartment.

"I was just in shock. I was like, 'Oh my God. Did she really do this?' You're supposed to be my close friend," she said.

"We were talking in school earlier that day," she said. "She made it seem like there was nothing wrong with her.

ShaMichael and her mother said they are humiliated and wish the video would disappear.
