It has been brought to our attention that a person somewhere in the world has posted their own suicide by way of shotgun to TikTok for all to see. We are led to believe it has been posted in such away and become so “popular” that it is showing up in a lot of peoples feeds even though they have no affiliation to the person.
We are led to believe that TikTok is working to take it down, but that could take some time. We would highly recommend your children stay away from TikTok for the next 24-48 hours to allow the company to remove it.
Please be aware that Brighton Primary School has no direct association with this at all, no confirmation of the reality of the video or its likelihood to be taken down. We are however just sharing what we have heard in an effort to keep our community safe from potentially witnessing such a horrific event. We are also taking this time to remind the community of the inherent risks of this platform and that its minimum age is 13.
