Mum: Close down cyber bullying site ; INTERNET [Mirror (UK)]
(Mirror (UK) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) A MUM is calling for a social networking website to be shut down after cyber bullies drove her 12-year-old daughter to the brink of suicide. Kierah Gowers was told she should drink bleach because the world would be a better place if she was dead.
One troll said on ask.fm: "If you don't kill yourself I'll do it... kill you, your family and everyone you love."
Mum Kerry, 32, from Blackpool, said: "Nobody should have access to the site. It should be shut down. We don't know who these people are but they made her life hell to the point where she threatened to kill herself."
After coming under fire over the death of four teens, ask.fm has pledged to improve safety for those using the website.
