Cyberbully hits Whitestone students

By Alex Robins

A Whitestone school is still trying to figure out the identity of an anonymous cyberbully who lashed out at several of its students last weekend on Instagram.

The user, @StLukeIdiots, posted photos of students who attend St. Luke’s School in Whitestone along with abusive comments about each one.

“These kids are all ugly and fat. I’ll be posting the sixth graders that should die,” the description on the abusive account said before it was taken down.

The school reported the incident to the police and said the bully could face suspension or even expulsion.

Officers from the 109th Precinct were to attend a school assembly this week to talk about the issue of cyberbullying.
