North Carolina mom Britni Starling adopted two daughters who had a rough life at home.

Now, she says one of her girls is facing torment at school — and that a school bus driver contributed.

Starling said that her daughter, Nora, and her sister were abused psychologically by their biological parents, according to ABC13.

Nora is now on medications to help with her ADHD and Reactive Attachment Disorder, a condition in which a child doesn’t form normal attachments to caregivers.

Medications to treat the conditions can cause increased appetite. Nora gets teased for her weight by classmates on the bus, she said:

“They say ‘you’re ugly’ and some other stuff.”

On Friday, Nora’s mom said the situation had become worse. She claims the girl’s bus driver joined in on the teasing.

Starling said the driver told her daughter that she’ll end up on TLC’s reality series about morbidly obese people. The mom explained:

“The school bus driver said, ‘Yeah, if you keep eating that way you’re going to end up on ‘My 600-Pound Life.'”

She said that she went to Mac Williams Middle School to check the school bus camera after her daughter told her what happened, ABC 13 reports.

The video footage allegedly corroborated the child’s story.

Starling was frustrated that a staff member would talk to her daughter that way, especially because the driver apparently knew the girl’s situation. She texted the bus driver:

There is no justification for what you said to my daughter, and I’m sure the kids are bullying her because they see a person in administration like yourself doing it.

The child has since been given a new bus driver, but her mom is upset her daughter had to endure the allegedly bullying. She said:

“My daughter deserves better. The fact that society has let her down — number one, by her mom, and the school as a whole. If I’m calling and calling the board of education to help my daughter, why are you not helping her?”

A spokesperson for the school district told ABC 13 that all their employees are held to “high standards,” but declined to comment on any sort of investigation.

    Might be that the bus driver was trying to help. We do not know until we hear the bus driver speak on video. It’s all about the tone and intent of the comment.

      It has nothing to do with the tone or intent of the comment. She told the girl she was going to end up “my 600 lb. life” – please tell me how the tone or intent can possibly change the perception that the bus driver was insulting and bullying this child?

    The message was badly delivered, but after seeing the picture of mother and daughter, they could use a little help wit nutritional advise.
