ROME – Hana Kimura dies at 22 years old. The Japanese wrestler allegedly committed suicide because of cyberbullying.
Just before he died, in fact, he published a series of worrying posts on social media in which he reported that he had been a victim of cyberbullying.
Doubts about suicide were also raised because on Friday Kimura posted self-harming images on Twitter along with messages of despair: "I don't want to be a human anymore."
"It breaks my heart the way cruel people can express themselves on social media, " said Impact world champion Tessa Blanchard.
"I hope this serves as a reminder that interactions on social media can have a serious effect on anyone's mental health, no matter who they are," wrestling journalist Adam Pacitti wrote.
Among those who also paid tribute to the online star is also British professional wrestler Jamie Hayter, who wrote:
“I don't even know what to say or hear. Numbness. I can't express it. Rip Hana Kimura. Wonderful human being ”.
While the American wrestler Su Yung wrote: “I will always love you and I will miss you, my friend. You are my little sister. " (Source Huffington Post).
