A schoolgirl killed herself over fears she had put a racially offensive picture on the internet.
Phoebe Connop, 16, had been chatting regularly online to an Asian lad whom she called her boyfriend despite never having met him.
She then put a picture of herself on Instagram with her skin colour edited to look darker and a scarf wrapped around her head.
Phoebe, a talented gymnast, told friends she would have to look like that to get approval from the parents of her “boyfriend”.
But when the picture was spread around the net, Phoebe became worried about a backlash.
Detective Sergeant Katherine Tomkins said
: “She was scared of what the . might be from the Asian community in her area.”
Phoebe’s dad Laurence, 53, who arrived home in Halesowen, West Midlands, to find his daughter hanged last month, said: “She was a lovely girl who would never want to cause offence to anyone.”
