Whitestone students struck by cyberbully

By Alex Robinson

St. Luke School students have been hit by a cyberbully.

An anonymous Instagram user called StLukeIdiots has been posting pictures of students from the Whitestone school with abusive comments.

The account, which has since been taken down, had a description that said “these kids are all ugly and fat. I’ll be posting the sixth graders that should die.”

Devon O’Connor, president of Welcome to Whitestone, posted an alert about the anonymous bully on his Facebook page, urging people to report the Instagram account after he heard from terrified parents.

“It was really disgusting to see it,” he said.
