"I can’t forget those days."
An 18-year-old TikToker reportedly took her own life after facing online bullying and harassment.
Bradford-born Madiyah Munir was allegedly found unresponsive on December 18, 2023, by her sister Zara in her room.
A note allegedly read: “I’m sorry, I can’t take it anymore.”
Madiyah, better known as its_m2trappy, was described as a happy individual with a contagious smile and a vibrant personality.
With over 6,400 followers, the TikToker was popular in Bradford.
Her TikTok page consists of videos where she is dancing, lip-syncing or spreading awareness about mental health.
But behind the smiling face was a heart filled with pain and sorrow caused by online bullying and harassment faced by the young teenager.
Madiyah’s sister Zara revealed that her sister did not mention how much she was being bullied, hiding it behind a smiling face, and stated that she seemed happy and normal on the day of her death.
A candlelight vigil has been organised by Madiyah’s family and friends followed by a memorial service which will raise the importance of mental health.
She was described by members of her community as a kind, caring and upbeat character who was actively present in the community.
Tributes have poured in on TikTok and many fan pages have been set up in Madiyah’s honour.
Several individuals have also shared videos of the alleged bullies and called for action to be taken against them.
One tribute read: “I miss Madiyah. She used to be friends with me in Year 9, I can’t forget those days.
“May Allah grant you the highest rank in Jannah [heaven].”
“We failed to protect her. The bullies have blood on their hands.”
A viral video also featured a message in Madiyah’s voice, which is believed to be her parting words.
The message states: “Be calm with everyone, you never know when you are going to disappear. You never know when Allah is going to take your soul.
“Before you go to sleep tonight, do me ONE single favour and I’ll have so much respect for YOU.
“Read your Shahada before you go to sleep. I’m not perfect but I do want the best for you guys.
“Regardless of whatever people do to me or whatever people say to me, I’m not bothered about that.
“Guys can punch me in the face, guys can kick me in my privates, I do not care.
“None of that stuff matters to me. What matters to me is you guys.”
The TikToker’s death is a stark reminder that cyberbullying is a worrying issue that needs to be dealt with accordingly.
It calls for strict regulations to ensure that all social media users are safe on their platforms.
