It’s really a shame that such a malicious prank ended in the loss of a life. The two pranksters should feel like total shit right now. They will never be able to escape this, and nor should they. There is nothing right about what they did. There is nothing fair about bullying. Calling them assholes in print is just not enough.
If only our country could set a good example in not bullying gays as well.
Stupid quote describing the prankster’s character:
“I think he’s a good person,” said a neighbor and former classmate. “I don’t think he’s a homophobe. It would’ve been no different if it was a girl in the room.”
I have a feeling that it would have been VERY different. Probably topped off with a round of applause for Tyler for sexing some chick on webcam. Not with ridicule and suicide. Ugh.
P.S. Please don’t commit suicide people. 😦
