Malaysian teen jumps to death after Instagram users voted in poll

A teenager in Malaysia jumped to her death after asking her social media followers to vote on whether she should kill herself. The 16-year-old girl, not named, had run a poll on Instagram with the question ’Really Important, Help Me Choose D/L’, ’D/L’ meaning ’Death/Life’, hours before jumping off the building. 69 per cent voted ’D’ prior to her death. The girl had a history of depression.

Sad. Handling peer pressure on social media is something that needs to be taught to the young. Depressions spreading rapidly in the young and, while its not clear in this case, the social media is most likely a major factor

Don't know who is stupider. The girl for making the poll and following the result or the idiots that voted for her to die. In that case, you don't vote. You tell her to get some help. I probably blame the voters more.
