If you were logged onto Twitter this past week, you probably heard of Amanda Todd. Just a month before her 16th birthday, she committed suicide because of the endless bullying and cyberstalking.
When Amanda was twelve years old, she made the naive mistake of "flashing" a webcam. Her photo was distributed publicly and Amanda continued to be taunted regardless of a numerous fresh starts. She was blackmailed to "giving a show" through a message on Facebook, a profile was created in honour of her body parts and she was bullied in school. She was twelve years old and thought of it as harmless behaviour. What's disturbing is that the people distributing her photos are distributing child pornography.
Amanda was bullied, attached, manipulated, stalked and harassed for four years. As a young girl, how many of you could get over that?
I've read plenty of comments and posts about Amanda's suicide. These are some of the disturbing and ignorant comments made:
