Jessi Slaughter's Struggle After Her Viral Meme!

A+ A-

Way back year 2010, Jessi Slaughter posted a four and a half minute video talking about 'haters' to YouTube after rumors began buzzing that the 11 year old had slept with a 25-year-old singer. The video, mixed with curses and rash language caught the attention of the MySpace-era internet.

But when the child posted another video where her father, Gene Leonhardt, furiously defended his crying daughter, it was the turning point that transformed Jessi into a meme and her life into a living hell.

Six years after the internet began bullying Jessi – who is now going by the name Damien – says the video changed their life. Damien was ceaselessly harassed and shortly after the video went viral, Damien was placed in foster care when their father punched them and their mother.

Damien is still active online; they're active on the blogging website Tumblr where they feel they have finally found a positive community. They say they now are able to speak to the community and give advice about handling harassment and bullying. “I want to use my experiences to help other people, and also to help myself grow as a person and to get more involved with things that can help other people. Watch this video of Jessi with her father defending her from cyber bullies:


Nowadays, people are a lot more understanding that, yes, there’s a person behind that photo, there’s a person behind that video.  It’s not just a funny picture that has no meaning when you share things. It has a meaning to the person who put it there,” Damien said.

  1. I was in a relationship for almost three years, We were working on the same company but not on the same building. She was on night shift, i’m on morning. I got promoted and it took me almost three months to adjust the new work load, schedule, task, etc. While I was busy, she also attended a fire brigade training. We seldom date. When i have problems, i talk to her but we always argue because of different opinions. One she called me and said she wanted a break up. That night, i wasn’t able to sleep. I realized everything that i didn’t have time for her and didn’t have time to care for her anymore, it was my fault.. We talked, i asked her the reasons why it has to end. I cried and the heartbreak was unbearable. I reached out for one week visiting her everyday in her house. The first week all i see was a cold and frozen heart. Like a heart made of stone. No feelings anymore. Until a friend of mine introduced me to DOCTOR ISIBOR, he is indeed a great and mighty man,he is true to his words and down to earth despite his unimaginable powers,he told me what to do and everything went as planned, my lover came back to me begging and settled with me and was happy again because of the reunion. I will forever be greatful to him, you can contact him on his email @ doctorisiborspelltemple@yahoo.com,website:http://doctorisiborspelltemple.webs.com
