How did she die? Cause of Death
Molly Russell was a 14 years old girl. In November 2017, she took her own life and her father, Ian, on suicide and self-harm on platforms including Instagram and Pinterest and put her life in sucking content.
Andrew Walker said, ” Molly died from an act of self-harm while suffering from depression and the negative effects of online content”, Andrew also said he ended her family’s 5 years of waiting for the answer instead of suicide.
Anyone with teenaged kids will be appalled to see the online content about suicide & self-harm pumped out by Instagram and Pinterest which poor 14-yr-old Molly Russell watched before her death. No decent society should be subjected to this vicious garbage for Meta’s enrichment.
