Amanda Todd, a teenager from Vancouver, who posted a video about being cyber-bullied just last month has committed suicide. Her video was based on recounting how bullying forced her to switch schools and made her a drug addict.
With the help of cue cards she tells her heart-wrenching story about how she was badly beaten by classmates and her nude photos were posted online.
She also talks about a man who contacted her on Facebook and threatened to publish her topless photos on the web "if [she] don't put on a show."
The miseries in her life forced her to change schools repeatedly to find new group of friends in an effort to leave behind the haunting memories of being a bully victim. There was an outpouring of condolences on social media as hashtag #RIPAmanda trended on Twitter. Here are some of the tweets people made for the departed soul.
