Photos of Rehtaeh Parsons Appeared in Facebook Dating Ads

This, in and of itself might not seem so bad, but the Nova Scotia teen committed suicide in 2011 at age 17 from online bullying stemming from an acquaintance rape. She was 15 when four boys at a friend’s house allegedly raped her, photographed it and circulated photos of the assault online. The ads have been pulled and the advertiser banned from Facebook.
