Teen Sues Classmates Over Facebook Cyberbullying
Facebook cyberbullying case. The girl’s parents hope their daughter’s online bullying will lead to changes in the law.
Alexandria Boston, then 13, cried when she found a fake Facebook page in her name, with photos that were distorted to make her look fat, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The fake page also contained videos and posts that suggested Boston was racist, sexually active, and smoked marijuana.
Two classmates, a boy and a girl, allegedly created the page and were given in-school suspensions for using cell phones to take pictures at school, the Journal-Constitution reports. The fake Facebook page, however, stayed up for nearly a year.
