Cyber Bullying - Jessi Slaughter
Tomorrow morning, Thursday, July 22nd 2010, ABC's Good Morning America will do a story about Cyber Bullying. In their promo, they show part of a video that was originally posted on the KerliGirl13 channel last week. KerliGirl13 is also known as Jessi Slaughter, an 11 year old Florida girl. Her story is emotional and complex. Here is an outline of what happened.
Jessi a.k.a. Jessica Leonhardt, a young girl aged 11, has been on the internet for a while. She had accounts on many Social Networks such as MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube and Stickam. Jessi was a fan of techno pop band Blood On The Dance Floor and its singer Dahvie Vanity. "BOTDF" sing songs about oral sex, sluts, whores, etc.; which many would agree is inappropriate for 11 year olds. Pictures were posted of Jessi and Dahvie, and posts appeared at StickyDrama. The first was on July 10th, which alleged sexual relations between Dahvie and Jessi. Then on July 12th, a post appeared which claimed to give Jessi's side of the story:
"People STFU This Is A Very Private Matter And Im Dealing With It.
This Post Ruined Muh Life… I Have Muh Life And Dahvie Has His.
We Are Just Friends!"
Next, a video appeared on YouTube on the KerliGirl13 channel, which has since been hacked by someone and then removed from YouTube. It was titled "Haters... Piercings... StickyDrama =D"
The video has cursing and is not for children! This is a copy of the original. Jessi states at 0:26 that "if you can't... stop hating, I'll pop a Glock in your mouth and make a brain slushie..."
Right after that, Jessi released a video titled "Muh Emotional BreakDown Over All Of You Guys Sh*t!" Jessi is crying and is upset with "haters." Her father appears in the video, yelling at people who have allegedly threatened his daughter. This is the video that Good Morning America has on their site at the moment. Many people have reposted this video on YouTube with titles such as "Ya Done Goofed" and "Consequences Will Never Be the Same." It's a two-part video, here are both parts:
As all this blew up on the internet, various groups and websites became involved. Read more at MSNBC. Here is an interview with Jessi's mom. Now it is alleged that Jessi's family have been placed under 24/7 police protection due to death threats, although a Sherriff's Office spokeswoman supposedly has denied that there were any death threats. Read more here.
If you are a parent, you might want to think about whether your child should be online, especially if they are posting videos for the world to see. I hope you were able to get an understanding of what could happen when children are allowed to interact online, by reading this post. For more information about sex videos and things children probably shouldn't be watching online, read some of my articles at LookingForClues.
