The results of bullying
The results of bullying can be serious. It can have horrible effects for the person being bullied and their family.
In 2012, a girl named Amanda Todd posted a video on Youtube explaining how she had been blackmailed, bullied and physically assaulted. She used cards to explain what had happened. On October 12, 2012, she commited suicide at her home in Canada. She was just 15. Soon after her death, her video went viral and by October 13, 2012, the video had received over 1,600,000 views.
