A 14-year-old boy in Paullina, Iowa, has killed himself after constant teasing from classmates, KTIV-TV reports.
Kenneth Weishuhn told friends a month ago that he was gay. From KTIV's website:
"People that were originally his friends, they kind of turned on him," said his sister Kayla Weishuhn. "A lot of people, they either joined in or they were too scared to say anything."
Soon, Kenneth was teased on Facebook and received death threats from fellow students on his cellphone. Click here to read the complete KTIV story.
By Monday, a new Facebook page had been created: Remember Kenneth James Weishuhn.
His grandmother Tullula Moore posted:
"Loved that child from the day he was born and now even in death. I am KJ's grandmother and would like to thank all of you for your support. Hopefully each and everyone of you can make/start a change with the schools, local gov. because Bulling is done by SISSY's. And it really doesn't matter if you are gay, you could be fat, skinny, walk funny, talk funny, have old holey clothes, no teeth. Those that are bullying are just ignorant. Make the Authorities responsible!!!!!!"
