Teens School Jessi Slaughter (and Her Parents!) via YouTube

She used to be just a girl with a webcam. Now, thanks to herfoul mouth and her father's explosive rant, 11-year-old Jessica Leonhardt of Florida (a.k.a. "Jessi Slaughter") has become an Internet sensation ... but for all the wrong reasons.

Of course we parents were shocked, but what's surprising is the outpouring of concern from teenagers. The Jessi videos have caused such an uproar among young Internet users that thousands of "video responses" have been posted directly to Jessi, in an attempt to reason with her about her Internet antics.

Teens School Jessi Slaughter on Youtube

Youtube name: Justinsceneable, 17-years-old.

Best advice "You should not be cussing like that you're eleven years old!Your eleven years old you shouldn't have piercing at all." "You really shouldn't have a Youtube account where you post pictures of your face. It's really sad to sit and watch this happening. I hope you realize that older generations are looking at our generation ... you may be one under my generation but you need to prove something like your intelligence. It's not cool. Grow up a bit.. act your age."

Youtube name:Weirdofrompluto, 19-years-old

Best advice: "When I was 11 I was lucky if I even had like hotmail... maybe Windows MSN Messenger. Why are you on the Internet making videos? If I were 11 I'd probably be outside playing not on the computer crying my eyes out. Just get off the internet. Just stop making videosWhy are your parents letting you on the Internet?! Fair enough if you're have Facebook but even still, a youtube account making your own videos, that's just stupid, you're asking for trouble."

Youtube name: Applesareforeatin, 16-years-old

Best advice: "Your eleven stop saying these words! I don't even have that much of a sailor mouth and I'm 16-years-old! You're eleven stick to myspace, don't even go on Facebook!"

Youtube name: ShelbyQ's, 16-years-old

Best advice "You're a 11-year-old! Get over yourself ... go outside ... go to the movies and see "Toy Story 3," plant a garden or spend time with your mom, that is the stuff you should be doing ... or read a book!" To Jessi's dad: "You're blaming everybody else for the daughter that you raised."

The average age of entry into prostitution in the United States is 13 years old, who are victimized and recruited by pimps. Strangely enough, those young victims haven’t been subjected to this same type of brutalization as this young girl, who was unfortunate enough to annoy some ruthless thugs on the website known as /b/.

This child is obviously in desperate need of some intensive counseling and guidance. Instead, she is being cyberbullied and subjected to public humiliation, while the criminals who hacked her computer, illegally posted her personal private information all over the internet, harrassed her family and spread pornographic pictures of this 11 year old child all over the internet, are being praised and glorified! Hailed if they’re a modern day “Billy the Kid.”

What I find even more shocking is the lynchmob mentality adopted by not only children and teens, but by full grown adults. who have been entertaining themselves by making sadistic youtube videos mocking this child, and instigating others to “string her up and hang her”.

Am I the only one who sees something very wrong with this picture? Maybe we should just put her in the public square and get some rocks. Better yet, how about building a great big arena with some lions and watch them rip her apart?

Let’s stop fooling ourselves by imagining we live in a civilized society. This is the same old lynchmob, just a different format.

there’s a difference between someone whho is physically beaten and brutalized and someone who is ‘cyberbullied’. she gave these people the ammo to do this by posting these videos, posting the pornographic pictures of herself, and posting all those comments/death threats. also, she stated that she didn’t care what kind of attention she got, so long as she got attention. cyberbullying is different from real life bullying. you can turn off the computer and walk away. you can delete the comments on myspace. you can make your account private. her parents failed her by not watching her/what she was posting. but their daughter was adding people who were obviously going to harass her. names such as ‘I P Freely’ and ‘Pedobear’ were added. that’s how they found out her address and phone number. they had her name, what school she goes to, and her parents name. with that information it could have been looked up in the phone book. i don’t even think she was hacked. a bunch of people sending her ups boxes and pizzas isn’t that bad compared to the girl who had the same personal information on her myspace and was followed home from school and raped.
in short: if don’t post your personal information on the internet, you won’t get harassed.

Excuse me, anonymous, but did you just compare cyberbullying to RAPE?

People like you disgust me. Children who are prostituted- RAPED- are not there for you to use in horrifically offensive analogies. There is no comparison between this girl and children who are sexually exploited, and she has in NO way suffered more than those children.

You should be ashamed of yourself for that post. And I hope to God you and yours never have to actually deal with that kind of exploitation.

Alexis: I agree, Jessi started this. But her parents are guilty as well.

Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.
