From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following is a list of suicides attributed to bullying — both in-person and via the Internet (aka cyberbullying).

For a list of people who died from suicide, regardless of reason, see List of suicides and List of suicides in the 21st century.


  • August Ames (1994–2017) (born Mercedes Grabowski), age 23, was a Canadian pornographic actor and model. On December 5, 2017, Ames was found dead after hanging herself.[1] Her death was ruled a suicide by the Ventura County Medical Examiner's Office.[2] Media outlets have insinuated Ames died by suicide following successive comments on Twitter, in which she defended her refusal to perform in a pornographic movie with a man who had previously worked in gay pornography, and sparking an "online firestorm".[3] Ames wrote that the decision was out of concern for her health. Some members of the gay community suggested her comments were homophobic and ill-informed about STI testing in the adult industry. Friends said she suffered from depression,[4] and Ames had previously discussed struggles with bipolar disorder and "multiple personality" disorder.[5]
  • Jadin Bell (1997–2013), age 15, was an Oregon youth known for his suicide which raised the national profile on youth bullying and gay victimization in bullying. Bell, a gay teenager, was allegedly intensely bullied both in person and on the Internet because he was gay. He was a member of the La Grande High School cheerleading team in La Grande, Oregon, where he was a sophomore. On January 14, 2013, Bell went to a local elementary school and hanged himself from the play structure. He did not immediately die from the strangulation, and was rushed to the emergency room, where he was kept on life support.[6] The Associated Press reported that a spokesman for the Oregon Health and Science University's Portland hospital announced that after being taken off life support Bell died on February 3, 2013.[7] Bell's death was largely reported in the media, starting discussions about bullying, the effect it has on youth, and gay bullying. The Huffington Post,[8] Salon,[9] Oregon Public Broadcasting,[10] GLAAD,[11] PQ Monthly,[12] PinkNews,[13] and many other media outlets reported on Bell's death. The media reported his suicide stemmed from being bullied for being gay, which Bell's father fully believed, stating, "He was hurting so bad. Just the bullying at school. Yeah there were other issues, but ultimately it was all due to the bullying, for not being accepted for being gay."[14]
  • Danny Chen (1992–2011), age 19, was an American U.S. Army soldier from New York City, who had served in the war in Afghanistan. Chen was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his living quarters on October 3, 2011, in Kandahar, Afghanistan, after being relentlessly bullied, harassed, tortured, and hazed by his fellow soldiers on the basis of his racial heritage.[15] His death resulted in a military investigation, which led to eight U.S. soldiers being charged for their involvement in Chen's suicide. Four of the eight soldiers involved were court martialed.
  • Tyler Clementi (1991–2010), age 18, was a student at Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey, who jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge on September 22, 2010.

Tyler's story is featured in the film documentary “Bullied to Silence.”[19]

  • Ryan Halligan (1989–2003), age 13, was an American student from Essex Junction, Vermont, who died by suicide on October 7, 2003, after allegedly being bullied by his classmates in person and online. According to the Associated Press, Halligan was allegedly repeatedly sent homophobic instant messages, and was "threatened, taunted, and insulted incessantly".[22] Halligan's case has been cited by legislators in various states proposing legislation to curb cyber-bullying.[22] In Vermont, laws were subsequently enacted to address the cyberbullying problem and the risk of teen suicides, in response.[23] In 2008, his suicide and its causes were examined in a segment of the PBS Frontline television program entitled "Growing Up Online". His suicide has also been referenced in many other news stories on bullying.
  • Goo Hara (1991–2019), age 28, was a South Korean actress, singer and member of Kara.

On October 17, 2009, two months into his junior year of high school, Tyler Long changed from his pajamas into his favorite T-shirt and jeans.

She had fallen into a coma, and the decision to switch her life support machine off at Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre was made the same day.[37] Her death has been attributed to online distribution of photos of an alleged gang rape that occurred 17 months prior to her suicide attempt, in November 2011.[37][38] On a Facebook page set up in tribute to her daughter, Parsons' mother blamed the four boys who allegedly raped and released images of her, the subsequent constant "bullying and messaging and harassment", and the failure of the Canadian justice system, for her daughter's decision to commit suicide.[39]
  • Audrie Pott (1997–2012), age 15, was a student attending Saratoga High School, California. She died of suicide by hanging on September 12, 2012.

At the time of her death, Todd was a tenth grade student[67] at CABE Secondary in Coquitlam,[68] a school that caters to students who have experienced social and behavior issues in previous educational settings.[69] In response to the death, Christy Clark, the premier of British Columbia, made an online statement of condolence and suggested a national discussion on criminalizing cyberbullying.[70][71] Also, a motion was introduced in the Canadian House of Commons to propose a study of the scope of bullying in Canada, and for more funding and support for anti-bullying organizations.
