Online bullying needs to stop.

A woman in Italy recently killed herself after an explicit video of her performing a sex act on a man was uploaded to the Internet.

According to La Repubblica, Tiziana Cantone (pictured above) had privately sent multiple videos to a few of her closest confidantes in the spring of 2015, but they somehow made their way online the very next day.

The Sun is claiming the 31-year-old’s ex-boyfriend posted the vid after she allegedly sent it to him to rub it in his face.

Once the video went viral, Internet bullies began making memes and parodies, even using her full name. Ms. Cantone was reportedly in the process of changing her name when she was found dead.

Tiziana had attempted suicide twice before this, and her family says she took her own life while staying at her mother’s house.

Her mother, Maria Teresa, told investigators with the North Naples Prosecutor that she blames her daughter’s ex for her untimely passing, saying she was “unable to untangle herself from the events.”

The grieving parent added:

“Recently, she had been very unhappy. She suffered from everything she saw and heard, and in particular from the lawsuit, because she believed justice had not been done.”

The late lady’s friend, Teresa Petrosino, told Corriere della Sera about the bullying:

“I wonder how anyone can be so fierce, how to rage against a girl who has not done anything wrong. I think that they should be ashamed of all those who have filled the web of insults and meanwhile secretly watched the images.”

Earlier this month, Tiziana had won a lawsuit that required Facebook to take down the harassing posts she had received. She had also been able to get the X-rated clip removed from search engines last year, but it kept resurfacing under different names.

Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this devastating loss.
