High School Girl Takes Life After Allegedly Taunted By Cyber Bullies! (Becky Called Her A Slut On Facebook So She Hangs Herself!)

They were the pretty girls who played sports, were in cheerleading, and used their good looks to date all the name-brand jocks. Phoebe Prince wasn't one of them. She was a freshman, had just arrived from Ireland. No way she was cool enough. She also had the misfortune of briefly dating a senior football player. The popular girls thought she didn't know her place. So they stalked her and called her a slut- to her face, over the phone, on Facebook. She was walking home the day she died when one of the vile little girls drove past. She chucked an energy drink at Phoebe and threw more insults the Irish girl's way. Phoebe promptly walked into her house and hanged herself in a closet. Even after her death, the popular girls wouldn't let up. A student told a TV reporter that bullying was a common problem at South Hadley High. After the TV crew left, one of the popular girls came up and punched the student in the head for talking on camera.
