There was lots of coverage in the news about that model's suicide recently. Although I didn't know her, I was very sad to hear about it on the news.

Yeah, she seemed to have been bullied online.
网路霸凌?不是说是职场霸凌吗?我看到新闻说,同事一直匿名爆料,放假消息,女模最后受不了恶帖才自杀的。

Bullied online? Didn't they say it was bullying in the workplace? The news reports I saw said her coworkers revealed things about her anonymously and spread rumors about her. In the end the model couldn't take the negative postings anymore, so she killed herself.
哎,总而言之,都是利用网路伤害别人呀!这就叫网路霸凌。
