Cool Caribbean four-year-old has perfect answer to ugly jeer (+video)

A smooth talking Caribbean four-year-old has come up with the perfect reply to a class bully's ugly taunt.

A US youngster proudly recounts her witty retort to a boy who called her ugly.

Called "ugly" by a boy in her class, Siahj Chase, known as Cici, returned home from school in the Bahamas and told her mother about her quick comeback to the insult.

"What happened in school today?" her mother, Sonya Siahj, who recorded the conversation and later shared the video on Facebook asks.

"A little boy said I looked ... ugly," Cici responded.

"And what did you say?" Ms Siahj says.

"I said, 'I didn't come here to make a fashion statement. I came here to learn -- not look pretty.

"The little boy said 'I looked 'bad', and I said, 'Did you look in a mirror lately? Bye bye, see you later, you're making me mad.'"

The video has been viewed more than half a million times on Facebook and shared by 13,000 people.
