No one ever wants to hear about an awful tragedy like this, but McKenna Brown, a young 16 year old girl, committed suicide earlier this year, just days before her Senior year.

McKenna was a victim of bullying and harrassment and now the 3 kids who were behind the bullying have been suspended from the School's hockey team.

Cheryl, the mother of McKenna shared that the 3 playeres had been suspended and also shared the details of what he daughter went through, stating that she was being bullied both in person and online.

McKenna's mother shared these updates with Fox News :


She was attacked. Her integrity was attacked. She was called a bunch of names.

She was also receiving constant abuse via text message from a teammate and a friend who traveled with them to games:

You've done all of us wrong'... ‘I hope I never see you again'...

McKenna had asked the one friend/teammate if she'd mind if she talked to her ex-boyfriend from two years earlier, and she said it was OK. She then realized a few days later that it wasn't OK with a friend based on how she retaliated.

Cheryl explained, the messages were in response to a message McKenna sent to the teammate apologizing for talking to the teammate's ex-boyfriend.

In doing so, it enraged this particular person and just amped up the attack.

That's when she said the teammate took to social media, encouraging her followers to cut ties with McKenna. "The intent was to cancel her. In fact, one friend, in quotes, said that her mission was to ‘leave her without a single friend."
