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 recovery

From having her feelings hurt?

She apparently suffers from severe depression, among other things. Probably got so worked up that she had a panic attack and thought she was having a heart attack. That being said, it's the farking Internet. If you find yourself getting that upset over what people say online, step away from the computer for awhile.

Brings a new meaning to the saying, "You couldn't get trolled any harder without getting physically injured."

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?

The only thing I know about Charlotte Dawson is that she's the "mean judge" on Australia's Next Top Model. She's someone who has no qualms about furthering her career by saying horribly mean things to teenage girls in the meanest possible way, and yet she can't take what she gets on Twitter?

Hey guys, someone said we're small, nasty and vindictive. Let's prove her wrong by proving her right!

/She's a New Zealander, actually
//And she's right

I saw this on 4chan. If a few new zealanders trolling her sent her to the hospital, I hope for her sake they don't decide to go after her. She'll be dead in a few days.

How many more times does a "Twitter storm" or "blogwar" have to reach this sort of conclusion for something to be done about it?

aaaand that's when i closed the window.

/seriously step away from the computer, no one is FORCING anyone to read this shiat.

That's some legendary butthurt if this is true.. Being as though I'm reading this on the internet it already discounts the validity of the story by 50%.

I can see both sides of the argument. internet bullies are shiatscum, and I would happily curbstomp any I encountered IRL.
But, that having been said, people who are sensitive to that sort of thing have to be self aware and protect themselves.
You can't deliberately put yourself out there and then expect that the world will intervene when you get upset with the treatment you receive. Any person whose difficulties have them in therapy needs to be very careful about social media and the internet. A person with severe allergies should have more sense than to tour the botanical gardens in April, and the same prudence should be exercised by people of high emotional vulnerability.

Is this author for real?

"(They then turned their attention to my family, lampooning my mother's writing, in addition to calling her a pedophile, and her then-partner "retarded".)

Adults, remember, with real jobs and functional lives.

It's a good thing I was already seeing a therapist at the time, because the onslaught took its toll on me..."


Holy hell, how have I lasted all this time? I'm like, Batman.

The tone and argument of this "article" is ridiculous. FTA:

"In Dawson's case, that has involved a choir of bright minds suggesting she should have just "switched off the internet" or "gone offline". What a great idea, you guys! Who knew it were so easy?"

Unless she's been zapped into the Grid by the MCP, IT IS that easy. Then the "author" goes on to whine about how it happened to them as well, and "It's a good thing I was already seeing a therapist at the time, because the onslaught took its toll on me."

Don't get me wrong - I don't support trolls. But this article did not encourage me to have sympathy for either person, and probably only created more trolls.

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.

The real story is that she tracked down someone who set up a group on Facebook called "Alex Perry is a twat" (which he is) and got her fired from her job(this info wasn't readily available on Facebook, she had to dig for it).
People called her on this, about 100 of them at the peak, and she acted like taking someones job was justified because they were mean.
Then Twitter went Spider Jerusalem on her.

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.

I know online bullying is only bad if the person who is targeted and suicidal is someone we like or can feel sorry for.

Callahan'sMartiniShaker: Tl;dr


She really should have logged off before it got to that point. She can only police her own behavior. The more she tries to police everyone else, the harder everyone else is going to come down on her.
