A viral post on Facebook in January 2017, led to a Western Australian woman’s name becoming known. Years later, nearly two and a half years, to be exact; the fact that Morgan has since died has reached the United States.
Morgan Jane Gibbs died as a result of suicide in August 2017. Some of her friends say that her death by suicide was due to relentless cyberbullying that came following a viral post, a joke they said. Other friends said that they do not know what caused Morgan Jane Gibbs to feel hopeless enough to take her own life.
With thousands of shares and comments on the post of Morgan Jane Gibbs shared about her new “clean eating” for her new year’s resolution while posting a picture of sashimi chicken. Sashimi chicken is raw chicken and a Japanese delicacy, which although it is cut leaving the lowest risk of salmonella, there is still a risk. On January 5, 2017, post she said, “Just made chicken medium rare chicken strips. They’re so good can’t believe I’ve never tried it like this before.”
The post became so popular, another woman used the same photo and post, which also went viral. The post went viral with some laughing with her joke, some attempting to educate her about salmonella poisoning, and others calling her names like “stupid”. Posts are going around making light of her death blaming it on salmonella poisoning, although the jokes appear to be lighthearted, Morgan’s friends ask that people show empathy to the family of the woman who saw no other choice but to take her own life.
