Amanda Todd takes life after posting video online sharing her story of bullying

A teenage girl is believed to have been found hanged just weeks after posting a heartbreaking video on YouTube detailing her battle with cyber bullies.

Amanda Todd, 15, was found dead at her home in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada, on Wednesday in an apparent suicide.

Last month, the troubled teenager shared a black and white video called “My story: Struggling, bullying, suicide, self harm” revealing her years of hidden torment.

She also admitted that she had turned to drugs and alcohol and had tried to take her own life twice.

Using a series of notecards, Amanda silently tells how she was pressured into flashing her breasts to a man in an online chatroom who then circulated the photograph around the web.

    This was just completely and totally sad.. I mean I can’t believe no one would even be her friend… I mean OK OMG she flashed her self, but is that really such a big deal in todays world, In a world where the internet is full of porn and young girls making it big using just their bodies. Did she really deserve the kind of Hate that she got and continues to get? Have we become that deranged and demented a society? Will make me think for a while now
