Anti-cyber bullying fix - meet the troll

A 17-year-old Fixer from Merthyr Tydfil in Wales has helped to create an anti-cyber bullying campaign with a twist.

 

Her story was broadcast on ITV News Cymru Wales on Thursday 5th December.

 

Jessica-Jade Davies and her group have made a short film depicting internet abuse, showing the situation from the perspective of the bully.

 

‘I wanted to do this Fix to make people aware of the effects this behaviour can have on both parties,’ says Jessica.

 

‘I myself have been cyber-bullied in the past and I want to help them realise that it’s not just a computer or a phone they are messing with, they are messing with people’s lives.'

 

Their short film, entitled ‘Someone is Wrong on the Internet’, depicts a young person verbally abusing people online for fun. This continues until the bully physically turns into a real-life troll.
