The Story of A Suicide
By Ian Parker
The story was so interesting. It’s crazy to think how much new media plays a crucial role in allowing events to happen, especially suicide. Suicide is one of the most concerns that new media plays on people. A lot of social media sites give the ability to threaten or abuse someone online. There have been thousands of incidents where kids get gossiped about on a social network site to the point where it leads to the person’s death. Tyler Clementi’s death was because of a similar situation. “Ellen DeGeneres declared that Clementi has been ‘outed as being gay on the Internet and he killed himself. Something must be done’”. This problem of bullying online isn’t getting any better, just worse.
