A 10-year-old Colorado girl killed herself after a video of her fighting with her alleged bully was posted online and her parents believe she is a victim of “bullycide”

Bullycide is a term used to describe situations where a suicide is caused by bullying. The video of Ashawnty Davis fighting was sent to an app called Musical.ly after being recorded by a fellow student of Sunrise Elementary School in Aurora, Colorado. The video subjected the 10-year-old to more harassment and she took her life.

In the video of the fight, Ashawnty, who is wearing pink, can be seen fighting with another girl while a group of children watch. Ashawnty’s mother, Latoshia Harris, said that her daughter had confronted the girl who had allegedly been bullying her.

“I saw my daughter was scared,” Harris told news station, KDVR. “She was devastated when she found out that it had made it to Musical.ly.”

Ashawnty’s parents said that the bullying that occurred after the video started circulating became too much.

“My daughter came home two weeks later and hanged herself in the closet,” Harris said.

Ashawnty remained at the Children’s Hospital Colorado on life support for two weeks before she passed away on Wednesday morning, and now her parents are hoping to become a voice in the fight to prevent “bullycide.”

“We have to stop it and we have to stop it within our kids,” Davis said.

“I want other parents to know that it’s happening,” Harris added. “That was my baby and I love my baby and I just want mothers to listen.”

Ashawnty’s parents described her as a bright and vibrant little girl who wanted to be a WNBA star.

Electronics engineer Bahaa told an Egyptian talk show on Al-Nahar TV he had appeared as Salah in mobile phone and soft drinks adverts, as well as an anti-drugs campaign.

“I did several ads with Salah,” he said.

Bahaa only appears in wide shots, not close-ups.

“Salah of course can’t stay for long to shoot a single ad,” Bahaa explained.

“I would spend a couple of days [shooting] here, while they complete [filming] with him in England.

“This is just to speed up the process because he doesn’t have a lot of time to spare.”
