A Canadian teenager went online and was talked into flashing her breasts to some creep. The creep captured the image, and tried to blackmail her with it. He figured out who she was, and sent the image to her friends, family, everyone she knew. Then he set up a Facebook page using her breasts as his background photo. Between the cyberbullying and real-life harassment, the girl had a meltdown, began drinking, doing drugs, spiraled into depression, cutting herself, and so on. In this video above, she has a poignant line about how that one image, on the Internet, lives forever. That image tormented her to death; she committed suicide yesterday. Amanda Todd was 15.
