Walker: She wasn't just "taken to the hospital", she was rushed to the emergency room. Would have been funny to see how her "ailments" were explained there."Where are you bleeding from maam?""Well...nowhere""Do you have broken bones or another emergency?""Well......people were mean to me on Twitter!"*Stamps feet, pouts*She is reportedly doing okay and was expected to make a full recoveryFrom having her feelings hurt?
tlchwi02: now i did a quick google, and it turns out this all started when she said in an interview that "New Zealand is small, nasty and vindictive. It's a tiny, little village ... a tiny country at the end of the earth."And then she is shocked and appalled when people who live in new zealand take to the internet website she voluntarily belongs to as a publicity effort to further her career and say mean and nasty things to her? Yes, from what i read one person was rather cruel (mocking someone who died) but what the heck do you expect when you insult an entire country?
medanzig: fark you trolls. getting off on saying awful things to some chick you clearly want to bang. farking pathetic. your disdain for your own life is showing. whats that? people feel shiatty when you say awful things to them? thats what words do? grow some farking humility

Let's prove her wrong by proving her right!/She's a New Zealander, actually//And she's right
Max Awesome: This is ridiculous. Twitter is a website. That you have to fire up a computer - or phone I suppose - to go visit. To post attention-whoring blurbs about yourself and if you're a HUGE WHORE, read tweets about yourself.Or alternatively, you could get the fark over yourself and go outside and contribute something worthwhile to the world. Or not - just go sit an look at the clouds./I stopped using Twitter when I ran out of clever amusing anecdotes.//I've only got so many in me.///I've used up all my wit on a worthless website.
Callahan'sMartiniShaker: She was rushed to the hospital because she attempted suicide- she tried to kill herself after attempting to handle some fairly Anita Sarkessian level attacks because her anti-bullying group had some success.It's not cause she was a "special snowflake" who's hands started shaking and ran to the ER it's because she made a mistake about her own mental strength when handling backlash and TRIED TO FARKIN KILL herself.She's public, everyone knows where she is, threats aren't abstract for someone like her and the reason she was targeted and became involved with anti-bullying was because she was very public about her struggles with depression.she's in the psych unit.the assumptions on this thread are asinine and pretty much Subby's responsibility .This is FARK you may now blame her for being stupid enough to be weak on the Internet but don't minimize why she went to the hospital. Itwasn't because of mean posts on Twitter, it was because of a suicide attempt directly triggered by death threats on Twitter and a whole bunch of people making a direct suggestion for her to kill herself.So she did.She just wasn't successful.Really all she was doing was giving them what they'd asked for - Subby should have at least given her credit for that instead of making it seem like wuss-assed pearl clutching.Here are some of the tweets.http://jezebel.com/5939225/next-top-model-judge-hospitalized-after-tw i tter-bullying-leads-to-suicide-attemptI know online bullying is only bad if the person who is targeted and suicidal is someone we like or can feel sorry for.
