I'm guessing that one reason this story can have a mass audience is that so many people were made fun of for some aspect of their looks at some point. So although the degrees would vary dramatically, it's easy to emotionally recall the pain of being left out/pointed out. Childhood, when people are weakest, is when they're most likely to lash out at others -- little daggers and they drink yr blood.
