Teen jumps off George Washington Bridge after Rutgers classmates post video of him having gay sex

Yet another gay teenager has killed himself, reports The New York Daily News.

Tyler Clementi, an 18-year-old Rutgers University freshman plunged off the George Washington Bridge after two classmates secretly recorded him making out with another man and posted the video on the Internet, the Daily News reports.

A Twitter post from one of the students accused of streaming the sexual encounter live on the internet indicated Clementi, a renowned high school violinist, was with another man.

"Roommate asked for the room till midnight," read the post from Dharun Ravi, 18. "I went into Molly's room and turned on my webcam. I saw him making out with a dude. Yay."

Ravi and Molly Wei have been arrested for cyber-voyeurism, according to the Daily News.

I saw this story in a magazine and it told everything in the exact truth and I was very sad about it because it showed pics and I hate when people have to be mean to others who are different

I hope Tyler is in heaven living a better life and I hope he is watching his boyfriend to protect him or something

Also I hope that dumb roommate is feeling terrible or regreting it. Also i hope he is dead or in jail suffering this cruel crime
