An Online Dating Site Used Pictures Of Rehtaeh Parsons, The Gang Rape Victim Who Hung Herself, To Advertise On Facebook

You might remember the story of Rehtaeh Parsons, the 17-year-old girl from Nova Scotia, Canada who hung herself after she was allegedly raped at a party and had a photograph of the incident passed around to her classmates. Her story was unspeakable and horrendous. Now, imagine that you’re one of her friends or loved ones and you’re scrolling through Facebook and you see her face on a popup for an online dating site. That’s exactly what happened to Rehtaeh’s mother, Leah Parsons — she found a picture of her deceased daughter advertising how to “Find Love In Canada!” for dating company called ionechat.com. You can read more of her mother’s thoughts about this tragedy in a piece she penned for XOJane. Keep reading »

15 Girls Under Investigation For Bullying 12-Year-Old Who Committed Suicide

rebecca sedwick suicide from bullying

Listen up, rugrats: you need to cut this shit out. Bullying on social media, I mean. Just stop. And grownups: it’s your responsibility to take bullying seriously. Earlier this week, the body of 12-year-old Rebecca Sedwick was found at a former cement plant in Lakeland, Florida, where she committed suicide. Rebecca was reported missing on Monday after she failed to come home from school. On Thursday, police announced that 15 teen girls had “absolutely terrorized” Rebecca over social media for over a year, even after she was pulled out of school for homeschooling and deleted her Facebook page. The girls who harassed Rebecca online continued to terrorize the Crystal Lake Middle School tween on Instagram, Ask.fm, and other sites, as recently as four days before her suicide. Laptops and cell phones belonging to 15 of the girls have been confiscated. While, obviously, the person ultimately responsible for committing suicide is the person herself, I bet these girls are wondering whether it was worth it to be so hurtful now that someone has ended up dead. This is yet another example of relentless bullying leading to a life being cut tragically short. It has to stop. It has to. [Raw StoryCBS Local]
