So what is it behind this story that gets us all worked up? After all, kids do crazy things online these days. There's nary a day that goes by that I don't see at least one strange YouTube video, made by some kid who wanted nothing more than to see himself online.
Jessi Slaughter's rants talked about how the 11 year old was better/prettier/smarter than all the other Internet users out there. She posted nude photos of herself on her social networking sites, and she told other internet users to go shoot themselves in the head. It's a crazy borderline sociopathic situation that has spiraled out of control.
Her parents backlashed, indicating that users who were mean to Kerli Girl 13 would be "backtracked" by police.
Jessi Slaughter's YouTube account has been closed, and her parents have taken measures to ensure she remains safe. This is a classic story that should remind parents to stay vigilant and see what their children are doing online.
