A beautiful 18 year old Tok Tok star with more than 1 million followers committed suicide, MTO News has learned. And many believe that the teenager was pushed to end her life by trolls bullying her on social media.
TikTok star Dazharia Shaffer, who was known as "Dee" on the video-sharing platform, ended her life earlier this week.
The teenage social media star had 1.4 million followers on TikTok. But not every follower was a fan. MTO News confirmed that she was being constantly harassed and called 'ugly' by a group of trolls - who claimed that Dee was only pretty because of makeup.
And two days ago, she committed suicide - but not before she left a bizarre video, which she called her "last post." In the video the beauty, showed off her good looks while singing Keri Hilson's Pretty Girls Rock. But then added that she was "really ugly" without makeup on.
This was the last video she uploaded before killing herself.
Shane Evans, from the East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner's Office, confirmed to the media that they responded to a suicide death on Tuesday for Dazharia.
Dazharia's father, Raheem Alla — who also goes by Rodney Andry — also confirmed her death in a video on TikTok.
"I just want to thank everyone for their love and support of my daughter," he wrote beside a montage of photos together. "Unfortunately she is no longer with us and has gone to a better place."
On a GoFundMe page that Alla created, he said his daughter — whom he lovingly referred to as his "little jelly bean" — died Monday and suggested that she struggled with her mental health.
Here are some pictures of the beautiful teen:
