Australian TV star and former model Charlotte Dawson killed herself after receiving abuse from vicious trolls on Twitter just hours before she died. Oh wow!
Famed for TV shows such as ‘Australia’s Next Top Model‘, the New Zealand-born star, 47, had a history of depression. She was found dead in her Sydney apartment yesterday morning February 22nd. Police said there were no suspicious circumstances. She had taken prescription tablets with wine and tweeted: “you win” in a suicide note to her cyber tormentors.
In 2012, she was admitted to a Sydney hospital after a suicide attempt following an ongoing tirade of abuse on Twitter. She later made fighting bullying her personal mission, waging an anti-bullying media campaign on television and radio and in newspapers and magazines as well as her beloved Twitter. Her efforts and high public profile on the issue were recognised by the National Rugby League, a major Australian football association, which last year made her an anti-bullying ambassador.
This is shocking and saddening!!! Seriously guys, we need to calm down on our regular abuse of celebrities on social media. And as for you celebrites, social media is not a must. Get someone to manage your account rather than exposing yourself to trolls. So sad!
