Another Devastating Teen Suicide

| Filed under: Gay Gay GaySad Sad

This is unreal.

Another gay teen has taken his life after being bullied at school.

The body of 17-year-old Terrel Williams was found hanging in his closet by his mother just hours after being attacked by 5 classmates after school.

A student at Clover Park High School in Lakewood, Washington, Terrel had endured several attacks including being shoved into a wall and even having his ribs broken.

Terrel had written in a note before hanging himself saying that coming out as a gay teen and having a relationship with boyfriend, Daric Rawr were some of the happiest times of his life. The couple would have celebrated their seventh anniversary this Saturday, which would have been Terrel's 18th birthday.

In his suicide note, he also wrote about the bullying in his school as well as apologizing to his loved ones.

"I'm sorry to my immediate loved ones, but I feel suicide is the only way out. Today, was the record worst day of my life, some kids at school stole some of my stuff that I got from people I really cared about, and that really pushed me over the top, next to being shoved into a wall, and my ribs being broken."

Earlier this week, Terrel's mother Cheryl Williams wrote on Twitter:

"My son meant the world, and high school bullies pushed him over the edge. I hope and pray, that no other child ever has to go through what he did. Bullying isn’t worth it. Why can’t people just be nice?"

Terrel's boyfriend Daric said, "He loved life, but felt the need to take it, because [the bullying] didn’t stop … respectful, whole-hearted people like Terrel, and the growing number of others, shouldn't have to feel suicide is the answer, because bullies won’t stop."

We need to have stricter laws to MAKE bullies stop and to also get the message out there that suicide is not the answer.

Terrel had so much more to offer, as did the countless teens who have taken their lives due to bullying.

So sad.

    The meanest kids in school are usually the most popular, privileged, and even the teachers SUCK-UP to them!



  2. 2

    7th anniversary with his boyfriend and he was 17?



  3. 3

    You really should stop posting these suicides. He probably was not the only teen to committ suicide in America yesterday and he probably wasn't the only teen who was bullied at school. Everybody gets bullied it is basically a fact of life. You either grow a thick skin and learn to deal with it or you make what is a permanent choice to a temporary problem. Either way posting this stuff is just wrong and adds to the problem.



  4. 4

    So sad. Seems like he could have just waited it out since he didn't have much time left in school. One thing that stood out was he was celebrating his 7th anniversary at age 18. I don't clearly recall what I was doing at 11, but I sure wasn't thinking about dating, let alone dating other guys.



  5. 5

    I'm sorry but these people are weak to take your own life. Give me a break, there have been things done to other people in this world and you never heard of them taking their own life. Holocaust survivors, slaves, they endured it and moved on.

    Bullying isn't the problem, these kids have severe mental health problems and we need to stand up and do something about it. Psychiatric help is the least that we should offer this kind of kids to get theirs lives straightend out and show them the path to a clean, healthy future.



  7. 7

    disgusting. kids are so cruel… these kids need to not be afraid to document what happens and the morons should be charged…



  8. 8

    Why don't you devote your time to a gay teen website, Perez? A gay teen website with lots of tips and a open channel from them to express themselves. Make a festival. Incentive they do a Cathartic Journal. Just do something. Because you had been there, you more than anyone know their pain. If you need help, I will be here and I bet a lot of gays celebreties can be reunited to do something big, like a parade or go to schools to informe the kids. The time is now. This kids cannot die without reason. Think about it, Perez! You have influence, your personal story, money, friends, looks! Help them, please! Make a world a better place! Lots of love

    i'm sorry perez but this is really pissing me off.

    I wish you'd stop focusing JUST on homosexual bullying, if you want bullying to stop, you should be covering ALL stories of it, not just the homosexuals. Because bullying has no specific victims to it, and many teens are taking their lives due to other forms of bullying as well, BESIDES what their sexual preference is. Please keep that in mind, when you say that laws have to be made to stop bullying, but then you make the specific label to bullying as being against LBGT kids.

    TEEN suicide because of BULLYING is the problem here, not just specifically because they have to be homosexual, so lets try to make an effort not to generalize all bullying into just being LGBT teens who are taking their lives.



  10. 10

    So sad my heart goes out to his family and friends.



  11. 11

    Gosh… Perez… You really don't get it, do you? If the anti bullying laws had been any stronger, you'd be in jail, darling… for a long time… Just remember how, not long ago, you were viciously putting down Sienna, Rumer, Jennifer, Vanessa, Mischa (and many more) and insinuating that many young male artists were closeted gays (whether or not it was true and despite these individuals' right to their privacy). The only reason you "decided" to stop was because the public was getting really sick of you being the huge bully you are and that had an impact on you revenues. Whenever you post about another teen who commited suicide, all I can think about is how YOU, Perez Hilton, have contributed to the problem. You make me sick.



  12. 12

    He had a boyfriend at the age of 10???

    That is messed up. Also, we ALL get bullied and we didn't ALL kill ourselves.

    GOING TO HELL PEOPLE!



  13. 13

    WTF is up with all these mean kids?! BREAKING RIBS?!



  14. 14

    When young girls like Miley and Taylor start killing themselves because you and some other bullies call them whores and sluts all the time don't forget to post it here along with a 'heartfelt apology'.

    That's terrible. I feel for his family.
    How could anyone raise there child to do this to another child?
    Where is the student support and counseling within the school?
    This could have been prevented. Just terrible.



  18. 18

    So sad. He was HOT too!
    People really do need to stop this bullying foolishness.



  19. 19

    My prayers go out to the Williams family. No child should be bullied no matter what and it is up to parents and the school to help stop this. Unfortunately this is part of the real world and parents must nurture their children, watch for the signs, make complaints, and try to seek counseling for their children. This goes beyond bullying because this young man was not taught how to deal with people not liking you as person so he felt his way out was to simply kill himself. I myself was bullied as a kid for being obese. I was pushed around, gotten things stolen from me, had tricks played on me, etc. I use to come home crying and even tried doubling up on diet pills (thinking I can lose a lot of weight faster) until one day I actually passed out on the kitchen floor in front of my parents. That's how they really found out what I was going through and they took action on all accounts. Going up to the school setting up conferences with the children's parents and also working on me as a person. Please seek counseling, talk to your family/friends because suicide is definitely not the way out.



  20. 20

    Sooooo sad!!! This is the first I've read about this guy, I sure hope someone with more credibility like Ellen brings this to light.



  21. 21

    I know violence is never the answer, blah blah blah…but I would love to punch each and every one of these bullies off of the fucking pedestal they put themselves on.



  22. 22

    Its not just America that has this problem but its in the UK too, I am gay and I hate it! chavs are the worst, me and my boyfriend cant go anywhere without being stared at and we're not even that ' camp '. We're not in school but we're still being bullied, if there was a cure for being gay, I'd have drank it years ago.



  23. 23

    I don't feel sorry for this dead boy or his family, like seriously they need to stop being such a drama queen and live with it. Even straight kids go through hell in school but they don't take their lives like that, they handle it differently or fight back.



  24. 24

    Re: marie-eve – Well said.
    Bravo and kudos to you I think exactly the same.



  25. 25

    what's next for gay boys " oh he ate my pizza now commit suicide" what a bunch of cowards.



  26. 26

    Is it just me or is this site a total hypocrisy? Perez Hilton made a name for himself as a celebrity (bully) blogger. He highlighted everyone’s flaws – drawing on them, writing nasty words – BULLYING THEM. What makes Perez Hilton different than school bullies?



  27. 27

    you really need to STOP publicizing these unfortunate events… STOP with the press…



  28. 28

    Wow! This is horrible!! Seriously… people! THINK before you do something so horrible like this. There is a lot of support out there. It's NOT the end of the world!!!

    Re: Ao-tan – Right on!



  30. 30

    Such a cutie… Too bad. RIP



  31. 31

    Why don't you just start posting every teen who commits suicide? Your constant references have spawned copycat suicides but you and your fellow bandwagon jumpers are too stupid to realize it. All you really care about is the free publicity and the latest fashionable celebrity cause. You've accomplished nothing, celebrities have zero influence in society.



  32. 32

    devestating? not so much. cowardly, thoughtless and dramatic? VERY.



  33. 33

    I went to this high school back in 1998, and even then it was horrible, no support for students being bullied.
    I came in as a transfer student in middle of the year, and by my second day a group of students as i walked into the commons area threw pennies at me and called me a whore while staff stood feet away and did nothing.
    Sad to hear that this has happened to to this young man my prayers go out to his family.
    Bullying is the worst form of hate, it gradually sneaks up on you till you just can't take it anymore. I transferred out of Clover Park before the new school year, was just too much for me.



  34. 34

    Sorry but I don't care about gay suicides more than any other. Get lost with your identity politics, you fat shit.



  35. 35

    Every time you post one of these stories, you should play the song, "Another One Bites the Dust" by, fittingly, Queen.



  36. 36

    omg, god bless his family, boyfriend, and friends. I can't believe people would be so immature to harm him like that? break someone's ribs? wtf, they should already go to jail for that. wtf is wrong with people? he's so handsome. this is a shame, wtf.



  37. 37

    HUNDREDS AND THOUSANDS OF KIDS ARE BULLIED EVERY DAY! THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR YEARS!!! NOT JUST GAY BULLYING!!! Any mother will be sad if their child is hurt… but WHY would somebody take their life?? SEVERE MENTAL PROBLEMS ALONG WITH PARENTS NOT TEACHING THEIR KIDS ABOUT RELIGION! It has never been acceptable to be gay in this world and it probably never will be.



  38. 38

    Okay FIRST off to all of those saying no big deal everyone gets bullied etc etc yep they do but are you also struggling to deal with a sexuality that effects so much of your life, family and friends? No matter how wise or secure you are with yourself , I dont know one gay person that didnt struggle with that choice ad feel conflicted because our society has been so cruel. Then to not only fear it but have it come to fruition on a regular basis. KEEP posting them Perez, maybe someday people will hold the right people accountable for their actions. Maybe someday people will get a clue that instead of judging others they should take care of their own shit first!!



  39. 39

    Re: YoungTaurus
    Just because they call it their anniversary doesnt mean they knew at that time. or that it was sexual.

    Re: thatslush – there isn't a pill but there is therapy. liberals will have you believe that same sex attraction is okay and something that comes naturally and kids are being pressured by to identify with homosexuality at a young age. the fact is that over 85% of students with homosexual attractions will ultimately adopt a heteroseuxal indenity as adults. As for you, look up Columbia Univ. Dr. Robert Spitzer. his study showed that hte majority of his subjects experienced significant change in their same sex feeling through therapy and support groups. good luck, i hope you turn straight.



  41. 41

    at least he enjoyed lots of an*l sex for 7 years! good boy…



  42. 42

    Re: Babycakes!!! – I TOTALLY AGREE! IT NOT HAS BECOME A COPYCAT BEHAVIOR! SERIOUSLLY!!! THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG W THESE KIDS COME ON!



  43. 43

    As sad as it may be .. killing yourself is just kinda stupid. Drop out, transfer .. i mean there are a bunch of things that could be done.



  44. 44

    And HOW is this CELEBRITY NEWS?!?!?!?!?



  45. 45

    Why are these gay teens killing themselves? Don't they realize that their lives are precious and that God loves them and that it gets better once they reach out to people that care about them? Maybe these gay teens killing themselves had mental problems like severe depression and bipolar disorder.



  46. 46

    The couple would have celebrated their seventh anniversary this Saturday, which would have been Terrel's 18th birthday.
    ???????????????? I don't understand. He has been in a relationship since he was 10???? This breaks my heart all the bullying but no kid should be in a relationship at 10 years old.



  47. 47

    I'm from a town on the other side of WA state. We have had the Wesboro Baptist Church here for a couple days, "protesting" homosexuality, as well as letting it be known they are happy for our troops that die. I wish this young man could have been in our city the last couple of days. We had THOUSANDS of people come out and show their support and belief in equality. Love can conquer hate. It gets better.



  48. 48

    I don't understand when a 17/18 year old kills themselves because of things going on at highschool when they're so close to being done and graduating. They're old enough to know better and to have that bigger picture perspective. It's one thing when a 11,12, 13 year old doesn't see the bigger picture and feels like 7, 6, 5 more years of that is intolerable, but an 18 year old???? I don't get it. How does a 17/18 year old not see how close the light at the end of the tunnel is? And why would somebody do this and let the bullies win? I mean, you kill yourself THEY WIN. They got the best of you. Dan Savage said it himself in his It Gets Better vid. You kill yourself, they win. And then you deprive yourself of the amazing life you could have made for yourself out there in the adult world, away from school, where life really is an endless possiblity of options.



  49. 49

    This is an epidemic now!



  50. 50

    YOU PEOPLE ARE THE MOST INGORANT ON THE PLANET. STRAIGHT KIDS HAVE BOY/GIRLFRIENDS AT 10 YEARS OLD DOESN'T MEAN THE HAD SEX IDIOT!!!!. SEXUALITY ISN'T ALL ABOUT SEX. THIS IS WHY PEREZ NEEDS TO KEEP POSTING THIS NEWS, BECAUSE YOUR PARENT CLEARLY DIDN'T RAISE YOU RIGHT. THEY RAISED YOU TO LOOK AWAY, AND LIVE IN DENIAL WHICH IS WHY YOUR FAMILY IS THE WAY IT IS.



  51. 51

    To all of you commenters and other people out there telling Perez to stop posting teen homosexual suicides, stop. It's important that we know because you may be the one to cause a teen to commit suicide someday. They are being bullied for who they are, and its just not right.They're not being 'drama queens', they truly don't like life because of the way they're treated. I wouldn't like life either if I were treated like that. Teens don't commit suicide from being bullied about anything else other than this, that is why it's so important to address the problem. Addressing the problem does not add to the problem, and if anything, it makes it better than it was before. More and more people are becoming more aware of what is going on in the teenage world and those people are starting to feel more compelled to stop it. Telling Perez to stop posting these is like telling everyone you don't care about teens committing suicide because of their being bullied for their sexuality. You would want people to care and help you through life if that was you, right? It's important to let them know we care because suicide is not the answer, and it never will be.



  52. 52

    I never comment on this site, however, I think that you need to stop posting the names of these children. It's proven that teen suicide is motivated by media that sensationalizes it. By posting their names on your site, you are telling kids that if they kill themselves now, they will be posted on your blog. (If they are predisposed to suicidal tendencies. I believe they are probably struggling with mental disorders beforehand.) How about we do more to stop bullying or treat depression and stop making it seem like a trend to kill yourself for national publicity.

    Re: rpw755 – your are absolutley right….these kind of kid are mentally unstable and need our help getting them therapy to correct their behavior, not to pander to them and tell them its going to get better.



  54. 54

    Re: rpw755 – So you're telling me that NO other teens have committed suicide due to the fact that they're being bullied at school for something OTHER than their sexuality???? Maybe you should get your facts straight before you post something so outrageous because I can guarantee you that teens all over this world are committing suicide because of bullying (and their straight). I do agree with the fact that I don't think he should come posting this stuff, but I do agree with others when they say that Perez is bullying people EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!!!! I just think he's a complete hypocrite - it's unreal.



  55. 55

    Re: rpw755 – Get off your mother fuckin hi horse you piece of shit!

    You know what? You don't like the situation you're in? Then get the fuck out of it. Suicide is for quitters. People that just give up. Also for the most selfish people in the world, because suicide is in fact, the most selfish thing you could ever do. Typical that it would be done by so many gay people.



  56. 56

    This is just horrible. I am so sick to hear about all of this. It must stop & parents must step up to teach their children EVERYONE IS CREATED EQUAL!!!!



  57. 57

    TO THE PEOPLE WHO SAY THESE KIDS SHOULD TOUGHEN UP AND FIGHT BACK…ARE YOU FORGETTING COLUMBINE? THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN BULLIED KIDS FIGHT BACK.



  58. 58

    Being bullied isn't going to make someone kill themselves. Depression will do that. I think a lot of people were bullied in school, myself included and most don't kill themselves because of it. I personally found other ways of fucking the bullies over like exaggerating things that happened and were said and getting them kicked outta the school district. Many times my Mom would step in and raise hell and call the police anytime someone touched me, and they ALWAYS had repercussions for it such as stints in Juvenile Hall and counseling. Plus, this guy was almost 18 years old. How much longer was he going to be in school? Why wouldn't he just drop out and go to adult ed or something and finish up there instead of being bullied by idiots and killing himself? It's sad that someone is so depressed that they think suicide is the answer, but it's sadder that they didn't reach out to someone for help. I feel bad for the guy but then again I don't, because he had options and maybe was to dumb to realize it.



  59. 59

    if you're being bullied - no matter who you are, - gay or straight, or whatever the reason - please know that you are one of the good people of the world and we need you to stick around, grow up, and be one of the adults who understands and cares about vulnerable children. Evil is real. Bullies are the living embodiment of it. But you are stronger. Say this to yourself every day. Love is stronger. Be around loving people as much as you can. Love yourself. Please know that their meanness is 97% stupidity. They were raised by self centered, stupid people and they simply dont know any better. People like me need people like you to be neighbors with, teach my children, do business with, go to your local Unitarian church with, etc. Dont leave us alone with the shit head bullies! We;d much rather be friends with you!



  60. 60

    Having a boyfriend at age 11 is messed up. Further proof that homosexuals are obsessed with sex and promiscuity. I don't care if you're gay or straight, but I'm tired of all the dysfunction and whining that surrounds the gay issue. It's a mental defect, people. Why haven't we heard about someone committing suicide due to being heterosexual? Because it's normal. Homosexuality is not.



  61. 61

    What's going on in America ?



  62. 62

    bullies are disgusting! i couldn't stop crying while I read this!!!



  63. 63

    Re: rpw755 – Where have you been?…No other teens commit suicide from being bullied? Maybe you should rephrase that to no other teens at the moment are having their stories told through mainstream media besides gay teens cause believe there are plenty who commit suicide whether its through jumping off of bridges or hanging themselves to overdosing, shooting themselves, etc. There are also many teens who are bullied who chose to go after the students who bully them rather than take their own lives ie: Virginia Tech shooting, Columbine, down to little kids bringing knives and stuff to school to stop these bullying kids, oh but there's no sympathy at all for them because they didn't take their own life I guess. (Don't get it twisted I'm not condoning the school shootings, but when a person takes their own life it's like "awww how sad they were bullied so much" and when they actually try to go after the bullies it's "those psychotic monsters who should've sought out therapy")



  64. 64

    did people ever think that maybe these suicides keep happening because of al the attention the media is giving them and people want attention! the media is encouraging these teen suicides by validating them w attention and the politiciants are using it to get votes and make them look like they r trying to help when they r really just using these teens situations 2 stay in power! shameful!

    PEREZ UR THE BIGGEST INTERNET BULLY THERE IS. WHAT MAKES IT WORSE IS THAT YOUR 30 YR OLD MALE AND YOU PICK ON GIRLS FROM 14-20. HELLLLOOOOO PRIME EXAMPLE OF A BULLY… SO BE GRATEFUL THAT THEY DONT HAVE STRICTER LAWS ABOUT BULLYING CUZ YOUR AZZ WOULD BE IN JAIL BY NOW. OR DOES IT NOT COUNT WHEN YOUR SAYING IT BEHIND THEIR BACKS. EITHER WAY FEELINGS GET HURT AND EMOTIONS GET FUCKED WITH. ITS PART OF LIFE. ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE. SO I HAVE NO EMPATHY FOR THESE PEOPLE WHO COMMIT SUICIDE. IF YOUR WILLING TO TAKE YOUR LIFE AND LEAVE UR FRIENDS AND FAMILY IN DEVESTATION WHY FEEL SORRY FOR HEM. FEEL SORRY FOR THE FAMILY ESPECIALLY THE MOTHER.



  78. 78

    so he was 11 in a serious commited gay relationship? um ok…sad to hear he oof'd himself but kids are way too exposed to sexuality too early!! play with your BarbieRe: URwhatUeat – 11 sweetie, do some math



  79. 79

    Teens and adults commit suicide everyday. They are gay straight black blue white and yellow. Why do you only post the ones about gay people? Are they the only ones with meaning? Are they the only ones who have real reasons to do what they do? If you are going to post one or two you should post them all. It would be a never ending list. This is not a gay problem this is a human problem! It effects EVERBODY in this world not just one group!



  80. 80

    90% of suicides are due to undiagnosed mental illness. Bullying is horrible and often the trigger for a depressed teen to commit suicide. One thing we can do to save lives is educate on the signs and symptoms of mental illness. It is very easy to mistake these signa as normal teenage behavior. Families, please get your teens medical help if you think something is wrong.



  81. 81

    this is really starting to look like the heathers effect. i think perez and the media should stop giving this topic as much exposure as it has been geting. do that and im sure the suicides will subside. younger folk get ideas from websites like this and the media and are too immature, weak , easily influenced and maybe even too dumb to make proper decisions. its really gotten ridiculous.

    Don't take yourself out of the game! Grow a pair and make them wonder about the wisdom of messing with you. Just don't do anything illegal, but make your point loud and clear. I'm so sorry this boy got so down that he couldn't see over the top. Bullying accumulates.
    Fight back in your own way.



  83. 83

    Aren't there hate crime laws already in effect? They just need to be enforced at the juvenile level.



  84. 84

    this is still news? apparently it does not get better.



  85. 85

    I beleive that these suicides should be investigated into and find out who the bullies are, what really happened and how many times things happened, where it happened and when. Then, if there is proof that these ppl did indeed harass and torture mentally or physically these ppl who commited suicide, then the bullies should be prosecuted for involuntary manslaughter. That is what I think should happen. Maybe these bullies will think twice before picking on another person. Put their asses behind bars and let them be on the receiving end of getting bullied.



  86. 86

    If bullies faced criminal charges every time their actions resulted in the suicide of the victim, I think it would make them think twice before bullying again. The kids in the Phoebe Prince case are all facing criminal charges; why not other bullies?



  87. 87

    Re: thatslush – Don't be ashamed of being gay, darling. Just because some people are so insecure in their own lives that they feel the need to tear others down doesn't mean that you should go around wishing that there were a "cure" for being gay. Be who you are, and tell anyone who bullies or belittles you to go stuff themselves.



  88. 88

    What's wrong with kids today? Funny how kids band together like a pack of wolves to inflict pain onto others instead of using there excess energies into something more positive.

    UPDATE 3, 10/22: Sadly, more evidence points to this story being fake. The photo of "Terrel Williams" (airquotes on purpose) is actually of Donny Lumpkins, who worked with the organization YO! Youth Outlook Multimedia, and is unrelated to this story (we've blurred the photo to illustrate the point). Which means this post has now turned into not the story of another gay teen suicide, but how Internet pranksters managed to spread fake information about such a sickening issue.

    i am so sad to read this story, im fully heartbroken to read about these wonderful kids taking there lives. what makes me more sad is i read this one and its in my home town, lakewood is where i grew up and for somthing this horrible to happen in a wonderful place just makes me sick. nothing i want more is for everyone to accept others for who they are and stop puting so much effort into making there lives worse off then there own. my heart goes out to this poor family

    tell me why i go to this high school and i haven't heard anything about this? either theres some misinformation or our administration SUCKS because they haven't honestly done anything to raise awareness or anything. and i would know if they had, i'm super involved in my school. i DO know that a GSA was recently started, but im pretty sure its unrelated because they planned on forming it before this happened.
    but i do want to say that if this is true, im extremely surprised. Clover Park isn't really a bad school, and usually people are pretty tolerant here. i've known openly gay, lesbian, and bi students who have few to no issues with bullying. and we aren't some preppy rich school. we're in a poor suburb, with mostly minority students. :|
