Bullying is terrible.
It may seem like a harmless act, but you never know how affected parties may act. They might even take drastic action.
If you’ve been following the news, you may have heard a thing or two about Hana Kimura.
The Japanese professional wrestler had been the target of cyberbullies, especially after her appearance on Japanese reality show Terrace House.
Many comments mocked her looks on the show as well.
However, she was found dead in her home on 23 May. Based on several tweets, it was highly speculated that it was suicide.
Recently, there have been more details regarding her death and its causes.
Kimura was reportedly found to be in cardiac or respiratory arrest on a bed in her condominium at around 3.30 am Saturday.
She was transported to a hospital and was confirmed dead there.
Ambulance staff had arrived at her house only to find a locked door with a written note that said “Toxic gas is forming” on the door.
Police found a chemical agent by her bed and speculated that she may have mixed other agents to make a toxic gas.
Another source has confirmed that the agent used in suicide was hydrogen sulfide.
The last thing police found was a suicide note addressed to her mother, reading, “I’m sorry. Thank you for giving birth to me.”
Wrestlers And Others Respond
It is no surprise that many have been shocked by this tragedy.
Canadian Professional Wrestler, Kevin Owens, described Kimura as an “extremely talented performer and by all accounts, a great person and a kind soul.”
Just woke up to this awful news. There are no words to appropriately describe just how tragic the passing of Hana Kimura is.
She was an extremely talented performer and by all accounts, a great person and a kind soul.
My thoughts go out to her friends and family.

Cyber Bullying is a very real and growing threat to us all as a society. Succumbing isn’t weakness, it’s human. We have evolved to feel as if our lives depend on social acceptance because the majority of human history our survival has depended on our social groups and standing within them. I know the trolls that spend their days harassing others online are battling their own mental demons, but please find a way to release your venom in a way that won’t poison others. Even a straw’s weight can be the one to break a camel’s back. Just the tiniest push could be what sends someone over the edge. Be the kindness you wish you received instead of malice and neglect you’re trying to pay back. Don’t pass it on, protect the world from what you’ve had to endure instead of spreading it🙏🏼❤️
