  • I agree! From what I understood he was gay. Maybe he hasn't fully "come out" yet and was embarassed. So sad...

  • They should be trying this as a hate crime - from the roommate's Twitter post, it sounds like he was disgusted with the behavior. This is so tragic, I hope those students get more than a slap[ on the wrist, but it sounds like the penalty for invasion of privacy and distribution aren't that harsh.

  • I would agree that this is a hate crime, totally wrong thing to do to anyone.

  • That is horribly sad, and it makes me angry for him. I hope the guy suffers a horrible life.

  • I think it should be tried as a hate crime. Doing something like that to anyone is far more than just hateful ~ it takes a sick and twisted mind to even think about doing something like that.

  • That's bad, but I don't see any reason for the suicide the guy had to have had other issues. He should have been getting help. The roommate is around enough he should have noticed that. So that is the only fault I see of the roommate when it comes to the suicide the other thing is more just being a shitty friend, Honestly I have sex videos of me on the net thanks to some shitty friends yes including drunken same sex. I haven't killed myself. I was suicidal for a long time but for entirely different reasons.
