After her daughter's death on Sunday night, the mother of Rehtaeh Parsons decided to speak out.

The seventeen year old girl died after a suicide attempt last week, following years of bullying. After a rape by four classmates that occurred when she was 15 years old, photographs of that terrible incident were circulated at her school. Rehtaeh was the target of widespread facebook and text message bullying, which she shared with her family as it was going on.

None of the four boys were ever charged.

Her mother's facebook page states:

This page is to celebrate the Rehtaeh we knew and loved. One of Rae’s pet peeves was that when someone passed away, suddenly they were liked and people cared. She wouldn’t want people who bullied her, talked about her, put negative statuses about her over the past year, and sent awful messages to be on this page. I know who you are because everyone message was a pain we shared together, there was not much that she didn’t tell me or show me. People were so very cruel to her so if you were one that felt it ok to bully someone in so much pain –STAY AWAY. Rehtaeh is gone today because of The four boys that thought that raping a 15yr old girl was OK and to distribute a photo to ruin her spirit and reputation would be fun.

Previously, Amanda Todd told her story online on Youtube.
