Mashable reported that the student, 15, said she posted what were intended to be anti-bullying materials for a class project.
Alarm bells sounded when a parent saw a comment in which the teen, pretending to be the young girl in the video, posted the message, “I want to be dead,” and the parent grew concerned and dialed 911.
Police contacted the school, which called the student in to discuss what appeared on the Facebook page.
The student claimed that there were disclaimers on the page and video. The teen recently appeared on NBC’s “Today” to discuss the episode.
Her action also violates Facebook’s own rules, which prohibit opening an account on someone else’s behalf.
Readers: Does it matter whether the student had disclaimers on the page and video, or should she have been suspended regardless?
