As Heard on Gold

Gee... This Makes Me Angry!!

Not a lot of things make me angry, however online bullying is one of things that does.

I read that a 14 year old girl has taken her own life after being relentlessly bullied online and the parents have invited the social media trolls to attend the funeral.

Amy Everett, who was the face of Akubra Hats as a child, took her own life on January 3 after suffering years of online abuse.

Amy’s father Tick Everett has taken to social media saying his beloved daugheter felt she had no other option.

"Bullying of any type is unacceptable. It is up to us to stand up when we see any kind of bullying behaviour.

A public memorial service will be held on Friday.
