Keke Palmer Addresses Suicide Via Twitter


The news of Don Cornelius’ apparent suicide came as a shock, and so did that of 17-year-old Ashley Duncan. Keke Palmer used her Twitter profile as a platform to address teenage suicides that usually stems from drug use and depression. Palmer opened up about her own issues with self-esteem but overcoming the depths of sadness. Our Vixen cover girl even went on to let young people know to talk about their problems.

In Duncan’s case, her Tumblr and Twitter pages were filled with signs of heavy drug use and her need for help.

It is truly up to our community to spot these signs and take them seriously. Yes, in the age of social media there are many who prank and joke about these matters; however, for some youth, these screams for help are very real.
