A malaysian kid posted a poll on her Instagram ‘Please help me. Should I D/L’. The answer to the poll was 69% for D. D meant Die and L meant Live. She also posted a status in facebook which she had mentioned she wanted to quit, and that she was tired of life. After seeing the poll on instagram, she jumped out of the rooftop of the building.
The girl had suffered mental health issues because she was not not happy with her father marrying another woman. This was the first time that social media was used in this way to abetment of suicide. The malaysian law was not equipped to deal such intricacies and the minister decided to amend the Communication and Multimedia Act. They also felt the need for a better counselling and psychologists to deal with the mental health issues of teenagers.
