A FOURTH Suicide! Gay 19 Y.O. College Student Kills Himself After Hidden Camera Broadcasts Him Having Sex Over The Internet

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersR.I.P.Sad Sad

This is possibly one of the most horrific things we've heard in quite some time.

Tyler Clementi, a gay freshman at Rutgers University, has taken his life by jumping off of the George Washington Bridge last week after two classmates secretly filmed him having sex and then broadcast it over the internet.

Dharun Ravi and Molly Wei have each been charged with two counts of invasion of privacy, and could face up to five years in prison if convicted on a third degree offense.

Worse yet, Ravi is being charged with two additional counts of invasion of privacy, because he apparently attempted to film AGAIN two days later!

Check out (above) a news report on the incident before the student's death.

Absolutely vile. We can't even begin to imagine how this poor teen must have felt.

Why anyone would do that to someone else is beyond us.

Our hearts go out to his family, friends, and loved ones. We can't even begin to express how grief-stricken we are from hearing about this awful, unnecessary tragedy.

Four teenage boys dead in 3 weeks!!!!

ENOUGH is ENOUGH! These tragedies need to stop!

    Wow that is so sad! I can't believe how cruel some people can be. I hope they get the book thrown at them!



  2. 2

    EVERYONE GO SUPPORT THE IT GETS BETTER PROJECT ON YOU TUBE. Pass it on tell your friends and family so they know it does get better.



  3. 3

    They need to be charged with MURDER! I appreciate you keeping us updated.



  4. 4

    Thats the fourth teen dead that you KNOW OF from the bashing. Its terrible, if you dont agree with there lifestyle just walk the other way, do NOT make there life even more hell then what they are already going through. Perez, you should consider starting a blog to help these teens and young adults going through so much. Your a role model for many of them.



  5. 5

    suicide…pfft…weak cowards' way out..



  6. 6

    So sad. Bit extreme to kill yourself though. I mean, heaps of people get nude pics/tapes leaked online and they get over it. Still, I hope the people that did this pay for what they did to him.



  7. 7

    What is wrong with people? My heart goes out to Tyler's parents, and his friends. This coming from a mom in the midwest with 2 teenage boys, who I hope, have been taught, by me and all family and friends in their lives that EVERYONE deserves respect and kindness.



  8. 8

    and yet you have posted things people didn't want public many many times…look at yourself Perez, you are culpable as well



  9. 9

    i hate it when people start judging. As a christian we are not to judge, that is up to God. We are to love on everyone. We are no better than anyone else. We are all sinners and one sin is no greater than the other. Chris is a human and should not be treated this way because of the sexuality he chooses! UGH!!!!! Like I said I am a christian and love God, but no where does it say to judge and treat people with hatred. In fact if you don't agree with them, you pray for them but thats all. What a person chooses as their sexuality is there buisness and its between God and them!



  10. 10

    Perez, you're a fucking hypocrite. You promote scandalous crap on this website daily. Now that it suits your agenda, you get sanctimonious and cry foul. Look in the mirror you ass, you're no better than the two guys that made the video and posted it.



  11. 11

    I'm all the way against any hatred or crime against gays. However, a gay committing suicide is on the gay person…. Someone who commits suicide, I"m sorry, it's on them. They needed help long before that.



  12. 12

    This is beyond sad… I feel so awful for the families that are suffering through this… I think those kids should be charged with involuntary manslaughter…



  13. 13

    This isn't new. Gay teens kill themselves all the time. You should have put up a gay news website instead of the one for your dog. These kids need more places where they can seek help. Too many of them are dying every year. I'm glad there's the it gets better videos, but its not enough. Dedicate a site to them Perez. Go to there schools and talk to them. Some of these kids have no support from anyone, not even their families. Serious action needs to be taken. Sometimes I wish I could adopt the little ones who get teased by their own parents. It just breaks my heart.



  14. 14

    Its nice that they didn't mention the fact that he was a gay student having sex with another man. The media tends to blow up things like that and stress the fact that he is gay. Just like they did with the Jet Blue guy. Said he was caught in sexual embrace with his gay lover. Its refreshing that they see an offense against a gay man the same as a straight man.



  15. 15

    Re: Debbie Maydak – thank you.. this is manslaughter.. hello your actions lead to the death of another idividual!
    and yes thank you so much Perez for staying true and posting all the things important to you.. others care too.. and those who don't should go read another site..
    life isn't all about celebutards



  16. 16

    How can anyone call what Perez does with what these bastards did. Culpable? Some of you are so ignorant there are no words.



  17. 17

    Yes, Perez, and think about how awful Annette Benning and Warren Beatty's minor daughter felt when you ran the piece that outed her. Think about it. A minor. A minor who has not chosen a public life. And you had to exploit that for hits. Sleep on that one.



  18. 18

    Where in the article does it say he was a gay man?



  19. 19

    This is why it pisses me off when people say that homophobic bullying isn't an issue.
    Also, it makes me sad ’cause I'm an RU froshie too.



  20. 20

    WAAA another gay person killed them selves. You suck perez all u do is try to out people and also put down straight people on this shit site. Look at the man in the mirror before u go around trying to make the world a better place,u idiot



  21. 21

    what pigs - I'm speechless. RIP Tyler.



  22. 22

    Perez, you wrote in this post "Why anyone would do that to someone else is beyond us." I would like to point out what you do for a living. YOU post pictures of teenage girls and young women with their skirts blowing up, or as they get out of cars. You routinely "out" (or profess GAY) people who are IN the closet….and you post updates of celeb sex tapes. I believe what these two kids did was wrong, but how is your job any different? If Jody Foster or Wentworth Miller jumped off the GW bridge, would it be your fault, for outing them? What about Vanessa Hudgens? Didnt you invade her privacy by posting links to her private nude pics? Or do these peoples feelings not matter because theyre celebrities, its ok for their private sex tapes to be leaked…



  23. 23

    As a Rutgers alum, this truly saddens me. There is a huge gay and lesbian presence on campus. So many people there willing to support and love him for who he was. This is just so senseless and I hope those individuals responsible for broadcasting the tape get what's coming to them. So horrific. I really don't even have any words.



  24. 24

    I love how they blurred out the faces of the accused to protect their privacy. How ironic is that?



  25. 25

    Very sad that he chose to end his life. Obviously it depends on the individual's personality. I would have been pissed off and embarrassed but I would not have taken my own life. I hope the two assholes who taped/posted the video get their maximum sentences.



  26. 26

    Ah yes…the ever famous PEREZ blaming OTHERS for a SUICIDE. Do you know what suicide means? It means someone took their own life. I have ZERO sympathy for them.
    I noticed you had zero problem showing sex tape after sex tape on your website. But suddenly this one is different because he is gay?
    My login name rings true with every post you make



  27. 27

    thats just really sad :(



  28. 28

    Sad. But it's not just gay people being bullied you should post about!



  29. 29

    Kids who have been bullied mercilously for OTHER reasons have also killed themselves. Not as tragic, I guess, since the only cause on the freakin' planet is GAY, GAY, GAY, GAY, GAY, GAY, GAY, GAY, GAY, GAY, GAY, GAY. Maybe to you, Perez, but not to the rest of us. Get with the mainstream so this column is readable and you continue to keep your sponsors.



  30. 30

    Yeah…sure hope THAT was worth it!

  31. buck says – reply to this


    31

    I thought Hilton was all for outing someone, it seems that all these young, film directors where tring to do.



  32. 32

    It real bring to light that these are real people suffering and I'm getting pissed that people on here are saying this kind of content is boring - would it be boring if it was you or your kid



  33. 33

    How is that any different than what you do Mario? You expose personal information about celebrities all the time. Hypocrite!



  34. 34

    :( why are people so cruel.



  35. 35

    Not to make light of a sad situation but….. there are thousands of teen suicides world wide every day and all you focus on are the ones that were teased for being gay. Try practicing what you preach and focus on everyone not just the homosexual community. I have known three teens that have committed suicide, all were straight, all were bullied one way or another yet i haven't read about them on your site? Weird…….



  36. 36

    A LOT of people die every day. Not just the gays. Oh yeah, but you don't care about us straight people. You'll flash underage girl crotch shots all over the internet and post leaked sex tapes. You are JUST LIKE THESE PEOPLE and like them, you disgust me!



  37. 37

    I don't get it…where does it say he's gay…



  38. 38

    ISNT THIS CALLED NATURAL SELECTION?



  39. 39

    I'm sorry Perez, unfortunately this is the ignorant world we live in. Where if we dont think and look the same we are treated as if we have a disease. I only have two minor problems and neither of them could be helped (i'm tall for a girl) and i have only had a handful of friends over the years because the rest of the kids at school hated me for something i couldnt't control. I wish these people would learn to deal, if you dont like it, then ignore it, not cause misery for someone else.



  40. 40

    Is this just what you did to get famous?



  41. 41

    Natural Selection…at work



  42. 42

    This is so horrible, I don't understand the people who enjoy humiliating others in public.



  43. 43

    Being that this website has turned into mario's gay agenda -
    why isn't any posting being about any young lesbian woman that have committed suicide d/t bullying because they're gay - so far, only young men have been spoken about.



  44. 44

    I THINK THAT, BE GAY IS JUST A BEHAVIOR. THEY THINK THEY ARE NORMAL, BUT NOT AT THIS POINT!



  45. 45

    here's what i don't get… this is a subject that is obviously close to perez's heart so he jumps on the story right away and condemns others for bullying these kids. however, every time i read his post he's bullying/bashing someone for no reason. for example, just because he hates jennifer love hewitt or that chick from twilight he constantly talks shit about them. this is then read by a million people. what if they killed themselves because of the horrible things perez says? would that be ok? such hypocrisy.



  46. 46

    So, Perez is allowed to criticize and invade the sexual lives of people because he is funny(in quite a vulgar way)??
    If Perez jabb’s about a celeb’s personal life, and makes fun off his/hers drug use and stuff its okay?
    And if someone with no fame, does it to someone with no fame who kill’s himself because he feels hurt, the person should be accused of murder?
    The homosexual young man was probably emotionally unstable before this happened.
    I can not think of a sane person who would kill themselves over a video…
    So, why can Perez hurt someone’s feelings, be an asshole and make fun and gossip about something personal , and someone who doesn’t blog about it cant?
    I mean, the person gossiping and humoring someone’s personal things is just as bad as the person who found it out by invading the victims privacy.
    Is Perez only having sympathy because the guy was gay and killed himself?
    Or is making fun about this going a little to far for you?
    I think making fun about anything just to insult someone is bad.
    So if the guy who filmed the victim should be accused of murder, why don’t we put Perez in jail because of slander?



  47. 47

    ya'll he is not taking light of other bullying. Everyone has something they are passionate about and want to stand up for. Some people its lung cancer, others childhood cancer, Some rascism, in his case its Gay bullying. He can personally relate to that. Im sure if a straight kid walked up to him and said he was being bullied he would do what he could to help the child not turn them away to go kill themselves.



  48. 48

    if he's hetero and banging the shit out of the hot cheerleader, does he kill himself?

    ONE MORE REASON TO SHOW THAT MAYBE LADY GAGA SHOULD STOP PRETENDING SHES SAVING THE WORLD AND MAKING "US THE COOL KIDS"

    AND LOOK AT YOU OUTING PEOPLE ALL THE TIME!!! YOU MAKE ME SICK



  51. 51

    OMG THESE ASSHOLES WERE FROM MY TOWN



  52. 52

    WELL,UNFORTUNATELY PEOPLE ARE NOT GOING TO LISTEN TO YOU PEZ,YR TOO BIASED,REMEMBER CARRIE PREJEAN? HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE YOU OUTED BY FORCE? FOR THESE PEOPLE TO KILL THEMSELVES THEY MUST HAVE FELT DEEP SHAME IN WHAT THEY WERE /DID…LOTS OF PEOPLE KILL THEMSELVES EVERYDAY OVER THINGS JUST AS SAD AS THIS,I DONT SEE YOU UP ON YR HOLIER THAN THOU SOAP BOX OVER TEENAGE GIRLS/KIDS KILLING THEMSELVES AFTER BEING RAPED,IMPREGNATED,MOLESTED..UNTIL YOU PEZ,GET UNBIASED,PEOPLE WONT LISTEN TO YOU..I THINK ALL PEOPLE SHOULD JUST MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS/SEX LIVES AND NOT MAKE THEIR LIFESTYLES/SEX LIFE A STATEMENT IN THEIR EVERYDAY LIFE.



  53. 53

    oh please perez. you do this for a living.
    also, gay people were taking their own lives a long time before the last 3 weeks. it happens everyday. you're just obsessed with this now and keep looking for it and blogging about it. gays taking their own lives is just your new lindsay lohan. you;re gonna talk about it until you get sick of it and move to a new subject.
    you should be in jail too then for bullying celebrities.



  54. 54

    All of these incidents are exactly the reasons why you shouldn't out people Mario, which you do oh so much. Celebrity or not, you shouldn't be invading their privacy in this matter. What you do is just as bad as what these bullies do. You are a bully in your own right when it comes to outing people.



  55. 55

    Long-time readers will remember the Dustin Lance Black pictures that pig-vomit ran. Oh, but he's a celebrity, so it doesn't count, right?



  56. 56

    Perez, you're just as bad as these bullies the way you go after celebs and call them "gayface" and try to out every single attractive male celeb. The way you attack people who may or may not be gay could just as easily lead to a suicide as what these school bullies do.



  57. 57

    DOESNT THE BIBLE SAY "THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH"? HOMOSEXUALS NEED TO REPENT



  58. 58

    Anyone that would film someone having sex without their consent is despicable and sick in the head. Respect others as you would have them respect you.



  59. 59

    I blame GLEE

  60. SF90 says – reply to this


    60

    I think it's pretty lame of you to only care about the gays that commit suicide. There are equally as many straight, white, black etc. that do it too and you completely ignore them.

  61. sanaa says – reply to this


    61

    Gay sex is normal, sex is not only about reproducing, I think it's actually the minority that are 100% straight. It needs to be embraced. But of course everyone's personal boudaries need to be respected.



  62. 62

    Honestly, these people are just fucking losers. Seriously. What? They're the only people ever to be gay or bullied? No one was ever made fun of or ridiculed? You know why they keep killing themselves? Because shit heads like Perez keep putting up their stories and names on his website after they take the bitch way out of life. 18 and you kill yourself? Go fuck off. Seriously. Just. FUCK. OFF. If you think that you're, going to make the world see how big of a mistake it was to treat you the way it did you truly are delusional.

    Perez, stop posting every gay person who offs themselves (Where are the stories about "regular" teenage suicide from being bullied?) and see how many do it. It's not glamorous if no one gives a shit.



  63. 63

    This is sad! I hope that one day everyone will be treated equal regardless of sex, race, religion, and color



  64. 64

    How do you know he was gay???????????? I hate Perez, he needs to kill himself.



  65. 65

    Can we please stop focusing on the GAY bullying/suicides…they are not the only ones out there treated so horribly, plenty of little kids out there go to school each day who are not gay and are mistreated too for whatever reason.
    Montana Lance, a 9 year old little boy in Texas killed himself not too long ago "because of bullying" and he was not gay…yall are not the only ones out there…PLEASE!!!



  66. 66

    i would like to point out that not once in that report did they mention it was because he was gay…
    not once did they mention that that was why he was being targeted.



  67. 67

    and now i would like to point out that nowhere in the article linked did it say that he was gay…
    so i don't know what to believe. I think the article would have said that the sex was with another man, wouldn't it?
    i want to know where perez got that he was gay…



  68. 68

    I had friends that were bullied in school, people would call them disgusting names simply because they were gay. Today, they're strong, proud people and live very happy lives. It's incredibly sad that there are closed-minded people out there that are so insecure with themselves that they need to bully others. I hope all teenagers that are being bullied realise that there is life after high school, and you'll be a stronger person for ignoring the hateful words. No matter how bad it is now, things do get better.



  69. 69

    PEOPLE KILL THEMSELVES EVERY DAY. IF IT WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN THAT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SOMETHING ELSE FOR THIS GUY. GET OVER THIS GAY SHIT PEREZ, OR MAYBE YOU SHOULD CONSIDER BEING ONE OF THESE STATISTICS.



  70. 70

    the filming of the guy wasn't because he was gay this wasn't a hate crime or even had ANYTHING to do with the fact that he was gay. Its a horrible situation but honestly it wasn't a crime because he was gay.



  71. 71

    Funny that Perez. It's sort of the same thing you did when you posted those naked sex shots of Dustin Lance Black last year. Remember that?



  72. 72

    THEY DID IT FOR THE LULZ!



  73. 73

    whooooaaaaaa…that is horrible. i work at a university and it never occurred to me until now about roommates using webcams like this.

    know how fucked up the kids at my university are i wouldn't be surprised if some of them weren't spying on their roommates this way! CREEPY!



  74. 74

    That is really heartbreaking. I dont understand how people can treat others so horribly… this is really, really sad. I was just at the Rutgers football game on saturday… I dont know how 18 yr olds could possibly be so heartless. RIP Tyler.



  75. 75

    I knew Tyler Clemente (the correct spelling). My brother and him used to be friends. I was shocked and hurt that someone who barely even knew him would do something so evil. He was a very shy kid, but a really nice guy. I really hope that those two get charges higher then the one given because there stupidity and invasion of privacy cost tyler his life.



  76. 76

    Re: PerezTheHypocriteRe: PerezTheHypocrite – You did not know Tyler. His privacy was invaded and that was the most important thing to him. You have no right to judge him for commiting suicide when a extremely shy boy's ecounter with another male is exploited for the whole world to see.



  77. 77

    Perez Hilton is the role model of the perpetrators of this vicious crime. They simply followed his despicable and filthy lead.



  78. 78

    So perez writes "Four teenage boys dead in 3 weeks!!!" are you serious. There have been more than that, suicides alone. You only get a portion of it on the news and perez is only worried about what goes on in the gay community.



  79. 79

    The government needs to inact laws that have very stiff penalties for privacy violation acts such at this. The internet is used far too often as a weapon towards others and there is almost nothing that can be done to prevent this kind of harrassment.



  80. 80

    Why? Did they film him having normal sex with a female and it drove him crazy?



  81. 81

    Didn't that chef guy jump from the George Washington Bridge too? They need to monitor that thing better. Sad story but yes, a straight person could have done this too. Horrible invasion of privacy. Most folks wouldn't handle that well at all unless your name is Tila Tequila.



  82. 82

    ^^THIS is exactly what you do on a daily basis Perez. I hope you see these comments and see how disgusted I am with you. I feel so bad for this poor kid. You do the EXACT same thing to minors who didn't choose to be in the spotlight but just are there because of their parents. You are vile.



  83. 83

    How is any of this related to him being Gay??

    Perez, you post things all the time that invade people's privacy…..



  84. 84

    what about all the girls that are committing suicide? they dont matter?



  85. 85

    I don't understand why the gay part is relevant, just because you're gay?? There are plenty of suicides every day yet you seem to think only gay suicides should be targetted for help. I think that your obsession with gay people singles them out even more. Isn't that what you're protesting against in most of your posts about gays?

  86. @v@ says – reply to this


    86

    I wish he could have been a little tougher, and had these two charged with illegal video taping for intent to distribute porn or something. Instead, this poor guy is gone, and they might not face anything for their intrusive and wtf actions. People who would do such a thing often go on in their lives to trample on others without a twinge of conscience. He should have been uber angry, not embarrassed, but that's what kids learn later when they get some confidence. Empower your kids with self respect, and teach them to like themselves so that if someone does something shitty to them, they dish it right back.



  87. 87

    That is so vile and cruel for them to do something like that.



  88. 88

    How is it going to stop if everyone is so fucking homophobic? Even when they don't admit it or maybe they don't realize it. According to my own statistics 50% of the people is somehow homophobic



  89. 89

    I SUPPORT DHARUN RAVI. THAT GAY KID WAS USING THEIR DORM ROOM TO ARRANGE GAY ENCOUNTERS. COULD YOU IMAGINE HOW AWFUL THAT WOULD BE TO HAVE A GAY ROOM MATE WHO WAS DOING THAT. HE GOT WHAT HE DESERVED



  90. 90

    This is getting ridiculous. I am horrified that these people are so damn ignorant, that these young people feel suicide is the only solution to their problems. People don't see things like DADT are discriminatory, and encourage a lifestyle where gay youth are treated like second rate citizens. This is absolutely tragic.



  91. 91

    This is very sad. But you are very bias towards the gay community.
    You never speak of kids who get bullied and then commit suicide, you only report on the ones relating to gays.



  92. 92

    my heat hurts so much. god bless his soul and his family and i CURSE the people who did this.



  93. 93

    Those people are disgusting!



  94. 94

    This is horrific and heartbreaking. But it's not specifically about being gay. As someone pointed out, Rutgers probably has a large LGBT presence on campus. THIS IS ABOUT BULLYING AND THE HORRORS THAT BULLYING CAN BRING ABOUT. People who are bullied experience lack of self-esteem, lack of self-worth, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts and ideations. This is about THE HORRORS OF BULLYING. This poor boy had his sexual experience streamed on the internet without his consent - I think it had much more to do with that than the fact that the person he was having sex with was a man.



  95. 95

    R.I.P.! Throw the book at the perps! 4 deaths….what a WORLD…! =[



  96. 96

    watch in a few days Perez will post the video!! 2 fat faced fuck!!



  97. 97

    i hope that if any teens are in crisis, as Tyler was, they will first call the Trevor Suicide Hotline for gay youth.
    1-866-4-U-TREVOR



  98. 98

    Re: WTFungus – Just because someone committed suicide doesn't make them a coward. It takes great strength and determination to kill yourself. A strength and determination fueled by pain and suffering. Just because its an act none should admire doesn't mean you shouldn't give condolence to the family or sympathy for the dead.



  99. 99

    I hope those two pervs get the massive jail sentence to there charges.



  100. 100

    An RA told tyler that unless he could document that a crime was committed against him by his roommate then he could not get a new roommate

    Were all of the key strokes from "ravi's" IChat and Tweet messages made from his computer. Was the re…mote login real. Was it tangential.

    Did Ravi and Tyler ever enter food.rutgers.edu services at the same time. Did they dine together(what can CCTV tell us?) .

    Credence is gathering for the circulating assertions that Tyler is known to have told Ravi " You are just the foreign roommate that I did not want. We are not friends."

    Is there indication from Rutgers CCTV that Tyler went out of his way to avoid Ravi?

    When Tyler wrote on the Gay message board "My roommate isn't half bad." Was he repeating the conclusion made by a parent based on the idea that Ravi never took anything from him, was quiet, and gave him all the space that he needed" (Did Tyler try to use his roommate situation to get an apartment?)
