August 29, 2016 – Pictures: Girl, Gymnast Commits Suicide In UK After Posting Racially Abusive Photo Against Asian Boyfriend’s Family On Instagram

On Thursday July 7 2016, a 16-year-old girl took her own life in the UK days after she reportedly uploaded a racially offensive photo on the internet.

According to reports, Phoebe Connop has been chatting online with an Asian boy whom she often referred to as her boyfriend despite never having met him.

Days later, she posted a photo of herself with her skin colour edited to look like an Asian lady with a scarf wrapped around her head to prove to friends that she will have to look like an Asian lady to be accepted by  her boyfriend’s family members.

When the photo became viral, she reportedly became worried of being tagged a racist.

Phoebe Connop hung herself at her family home in Halesowen West Midlands before her father returned from work.

    Abnormal psychology 101; she had multiple personality disorder and unfortunately one is extremely stronger than the other leading to the egoistical cannibalism.

    For real ? You gonna be kidding me. This what happens when you air your emotions on social media. I felt her fear because of her age but suicide is never the way out kids. So so sad. What a painful waste.
