California Parents Whose Bullied Daughter Took Her Own Life Tormented On Social Media

It’s a cruel world out there. Freddie and Charlene Avila’s teen daughter committed suicide after years of bullying at school. If that’s not enough, the grieving parents are now being tormented on social media much like their late daughter was.

The tragedy happened last week, when Rosalie Avila, of Yucaipa, Calif., killed herself. She left behind a note apologizing to her parents for causing the “pain she knew her death would cause them”.

An excerpt from the note was shared by the parents. "'Sorry, Mom and Dad. I love you.’ And it said, ‘Sorry, Mom, you’re gonna find me like this.'”

Rosalie was taken off life support earlier this week after being declared brain dead. Of note, Rosalie’s organs will be donated to save other lives.

According to the Avila’s, their daughter had been bullied for years, and the same thing is happening to them now.

Providing one example, the couple shared a frightening meme that they got on social media. “Hey mom, next time don’t tuck me in this,” was in a text box beside a pic of Rosalie’s face next to a bed. The words “Tuck me in THIS” appeared beside a photo of a person pointing at a freshly dug grave. Rosalie’s face was photoshopped on top of the face of the figure pointing to the grave.

In an interview with local media, the Avila’s also pointed out they visited their daughter’s middle school to discuss the bullying their daughter endured because the couple felt not enough was being done to stop the behavior.

"Right now, the bullies are still there. They were suspended for a couple days and then they come back and bully someone else,” Freddie Avila commented.

Charlene chipped in: "The things that they post on social media about my daughter are unacceptable. The people that liked it and fed into it. It's painful and it makes me angry to know that they have no heart."

The Yucaipa-Calimesa joint unified school district has not yet responded to media requests for comment.

Not surprisingly, Rosalie’s diary, which contained her dreams and aspirations, also held her thoughts about being constantly bullied at school.

“They told me I was ugly today,” reads a poignant passage from the young girl’s diary. “They were making fun of me today about my teeth," it continued.

Note that Rosalie’s diary is currently in the custody of the police, who are still investigating Rosalie’s tragic death.

The Avila’s have also publicly stated that Rosalie had been to counseling after they discovered she had become reclusive and was isolated socially due to the bullying. They also said they were not aware of how serious the bullying was until Rosalie couldn’t take it anymore.

After her death, some of Rosalie’s friends showed the Avila’s a video where you could see the teenager sitting alone in school as several classmates were teasing her.

"Rose just kept this to herself," Freddy commented wistfully. "On the inside, it was just tearing her to pieces that they were always making fun of her."
