A 15-year-old girl, Natalie Natvidad, who was in eight grade at Hebbronville Junior High School, Texas has committed suicide over school and online bullying. She took her own life on Friday when she took a fatal overdose of pills, officials said.
The teen was bullied at school and on social media, and at one point her mother even pulled her out of school to protect her from the bullying, KIII-TV reported.
Her brother told the station that his sister had also cried to the school counselor about how she was being treated.
On social media, Natalie allegedly suffered from cyber abuse on an app called After School, described as a 'new outlet for teens' on its website.
'They've always bullied her a lot around school,' her brother told the station, adding bullies on the app told Natalie she was 'ugly' and that 'she should kill herself.'
