Selena Gomez Encouraged to Commit Suicide Amid Depression Battle

By  | 

Two months ago, Selena Gomez announced that she was dealing with “anxiety, panic attacks and depression” as a result of her lupus diagnosis, and has since been getting help at a Tennessee rehab facility.

“As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways,” she said in a statement to People magazine. “I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges. I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off…You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best. I know I am not alone by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues.”

While many of the 24-year-old’s fans sent her words of positivity and encouragement before, during and after her public mental illness revel, there will always be haters. Sure, it’s absolutely horrible that Sel gets made fun of for her appearance and physique, but we can’t even fathom that she also gets told to kill herself.

Both Demi Lovato and Kylie Jenner also get sent these horrific and should-be-illegal messages on social media, proving that cyberbullying is still a very real problem that needs to be addressed.

Stay strong, Selena!
