‘…probably one of the most horrible things I have ever seen online happened to a boy from my school who had just came out at school and to his family. The boy used to be bullied online already, but when he came out it became relentless. This group of boys took pictures from his Instagram and photoshopped it so that he was wearing female clothes, and a few others of him in sexual positions and others that aren’t decent to mention. They then made a page about him on Facebook with homophobic names with all of the photos attached. The first time I saw it, it had a ton of likes, and by the next day it had 1000 likes and lots of shares. My friends and I were flagging the page as much as we could so that it would get taken down for bullying. He wrote a post defending himself, but it only made things worse. It got so bad that he closed his Facebook account and he didn’t come to school for a few weeks and was really depressed. The school gave us a talk about cyberbullying. and how to conduct ourselves on social media but he ended up leaving the school…’Demarco 16
