Cyber Bullying: Felicia Garcia’s Tragic Farewell Via Twitter

According to Rolling Out:

“Felicia Garcia of Staten Island, New York is the second teenager in as many weeks to commit suicide after being bullied.

Reports are that she was the victim of slut-shaming. Slut-shaming, as it is called, is the act of teasing a young woman on social networks and in real life about her rumored sexual history.

Felicia Garcia, who authorities reported had sex with four football players at a party last Saturday night, had become the target of such ridicule and the bullies insulted her up until the moment she ended her own life.

Judging from her final Tweet, ‘I’m done,’ the teenager did not have an army strong enough to stop the bullying and/or to bring the culprits to justice.
