A few days ago, the wrestling world was left shocked to hear about the death of 22-year-old Japanese wrestler Hana Kimura, who committed suicide after several months of cyberbullying attacks and insults that had been sent to her on all her social media networks.
In fact, the girl had not been able to withstand the pressure of a life made of abuses, insults, verbal attacks and whoever has the most to put it, with her existence that had truly become something unbearable for the young wrestler.
There were various messages condoling her death to her family and loved ones. These came from all the world's biggest wrestling companies, including All Elite Wrestling. A broad message also came from former Monday Night Raw champion, Ronda Rousey, who wrote on her Instagram account: "To Hana Kimura and her family, I am so incredibly sorry for your loss.
.. There are no words that could possibly heal this wound... Rest In Peace Hana Kimura... If anyone reading this is suffering, know there are resources available to help. If you need someone to talk to on the phone call this number...
if you would prefer texting, Text... to connect with a Crisis Counselor," Rousey said.
Ronda Rousey's Message
"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." Ronda Rousey ended the message with a folded hand and heart emoji.
