Kimura had posted a photo with a cat on her Instagram page with a caption that reads “goodbye.” She also posted a series of troubling tweets, one of which, according to a fan translation, read that she didn’t “want to be a human anymore.”
“Nearly 100 frank opinions every day. I couldn’t deny that I was hurt. I’m dead. Thank you for giving me a mother. It was a life I wanted to be loved. Thank you to everyone who supported me. I love it. I’m weak, I’m sorry. I don’t want to be a human anymore. It was a life I wanted to be loved. Thank you, everyone. I love you. Bye.”
This absolutely makes me SICK! How people think cyberbullying is okay will always blow my mind. People need to realize THIS IS NOT OKAY! What you say MATTERS!!! Big, small, famous, not famous — DO NOT BE AN ASSHOLE!
Kindness goes a very long way. TRY IT!
