"I'll never understand why it's more shameful to be a bullied victim than to be a bully."
"Ich werde es niemals verstehen, warum es beschämender sein soll, ein Mobbingopfer zu sein, als ein Mobber."
"Some people just don’t deserve you. They aren’t ready for your level of loyalty or love. You have to remember that not everyone was raised like you. Not everyone has a pure heart or good intentions like you. And not everyone has your best interest and wants to see you succeed."
"Manche Menschen haben dich einfach nicht verdient. Sie sind nicht bereit für deine Freundschaft oder Liebe. Denke immer daran, dass nicht jeder so aufgewachsen ist wie du. Und dass nicht jeder dein Bestes will oder dir Erfolg gönnt."
Bullied to suicide, I hope, the bullies are going to hell!
Megan Meier: A rival’s mother invented a fake male persona on MySpace to antagonize Megan Meier, who killed herself after the “Josh Evans” character told her, “The world would be a better place without you.”
Ever since the age of eight, this girl from the American heartland had expressed a desire to kill herself. Although—or because?—she was plied with antidepressants and antipsychotics, the urges continued.
At age 13, she was approached on MySpace by a “Josh Evans” who claimed he lived in a nearby town and didn’t have a phone. They formed an online “relationship,” and Megan seemed enchanted by him.
But gradually Josh turned on her. He said he’d heard rumors she was “not very nice” to her friends and that he had second thoughts about staying friends with her. Josh made some of their private exchanges public. His final message to her:
Everybody in O’Fallon [Missouri] knows who you are. You are a bad person and everybody hates you. Have a shitty rest of your life. The world would be a better place without you.
You’re the kind of boy a girl would kill herself over.
Twenty minutes later she was found hanging by a belt in her bedroom closet.
As police investigated the case, it became evident that “Josh Evans” never existed. His account was a phony one that had been set up by Lori Drew, mother of a female schoolmate of Megan’s who lived a mere four doors down from her. Lori fabricated the “Josh Evans” persona to harass Megan and extract gossip from her. She and an 18-year-old girl named Ashley Grills alternated sending messages as “Josh.” Lori Drew originally denied creating the account, then later admitted it while trivializing it as a “joke.” It was later revealed that Ashley Grills had sent the final “The world would be a better place without you” message.
9. After three boys gang-raped her and distributed photos of the crime, Audrie Pott hanged herself with a belt.
Audrie Pott: At a house party on Labor Day weekend 2012 in the posh-and-privileged California coastal town of Saratoga, police say 15-year-old Audrie Pott fell unconscious after drinking vodka and was sexually assaulted by three boys who subsequently scrawled lewd remarks on her body. They photographed the event and distributed digital photos to local students, where the images “spread like wildfire.”
Tortured by the fact that her gang rape was being treated like reality-TV entertainment, Audrie hanged herself with a belt a week after the house party.
10. An Italian girl named Nadia jumped to her death from a building after someone on Ask.fm wrote “Kill yourself” on her page.
This is the third case on this list involving harassment on Ask.fm. It involves a 14-year-old girl in northeastern Italy whose real name was Nadia but whose Ask.fm handle was “Amnesia.”
Nadia answered over 1,000 questions during her time on Ask.fm. She also posted photos of self-mutilation marks she’d made on her arms.
When she sought emotional support on the site after a breakup, she was slapped back with comments such as “Nobody wants you,” “You are not normal,” and “Kill yourself.”
This was her response after someone asked her where she saw herself living in five years:
Me living five years from now? Wow.
She didn’t even last a year. She killed herself by jumping from atop a high-rise building.
