MediaTakeOut.com just learned that a 10-year-old Colorado girl has taken her own life. According to local reports, fifth-grader Ashawnty Davis hanged herself after a bullying incident was caught on video.
It all started last month when Ashawnty was attacked by a bully - and the attack was caught on video. Another student recorded the incident on a cell phone and uploaded the video to the app Musical.ly.
According to Ashawnty’s mother, her daughter had confronted the other girl, who she said had been bullying her.
She said her daughter was humiliated when the video was shared online and passed around to other students, and she said the bullying got worse.
“My daughter came home two weeks later and hanged herself in the closet,” said her mother, Latoshia Harris.
