9-Year-Old McKenzie Adams Died by Suicide After Classmates Bullied Her for Being Friends With a White Boy

A family in Alabama is mourning the tragic loss of a 9-year-old girl who committed suicide after she was bullied for months by her classmates.

McKenzie Adams took her life last Monday (Dec. 3), and her family says that they believe being taunted by her classmates, allegedly over her friendship with a white boy, had something to do with it.

Here’s what you need to know:

McKenzie Adams hanged herself before she was discovered by her grandmother.

The family of 9-year-old McKenzie Adams said that the fourth-grader had been bullied constantly by a group of classmates since the beginning of the school year.

McKenzie’s aunt, Eddwinna Harris, said the bullying got to be so bad that  she had to change schools.

Her grandmother found her dead in their home in Linden Monday. She had hanged herself.

McKenzie’s aunt said her niece’s classmates would call her an “ugly black b**ch” and tell her to kill herself.

McKenzie Adams’ family believes she was taunted because she had a close friendship with a white classmate, whose family gave her rides to school in the mornings.

Her aunt told the Tuscaloosa News that bullies would often tell McKenzie to kill herself.

“She was being bullied the entire school year, with words such as ‘kill yourself,’ ‘you think you’re white because you ride with that white boy,’ ‘you ugly,’ ‘black b**ch,’ ‘just die,’” Harris told the newspaper.

McKenzie’s mother said the 9-year-old told teachers and her assistant principal she was being bullied.

Jasmine Adams, McKenzie’s mother, said her daughter told her teachers and the assistant principal on several different occasions that her classmates were bullying her.

Adams told CBS42: “She told me that this one particular child was writing her nasty notes in class. It was just things you wouldn’t think a 9-year-old should know. And, for my baby to tell me some of the things they had said to her. I was like, ‘Where are they learning this from?’”

“Part of it could have been because she rode to school with a white family.  And a lot of it was race, some of the student bullies would say to her why you riding with white people your black, your ugly.  You should just die,” Adams added.

Alex Brasswell, the City Schools attorney, said the case is under investigation.

“We are working fully with the Demopolis and Linden police department. They are doing a joint investigation of these allegations. We are cooperating fully and I can’t comment on any of the aspects of the investigation until they conclude it,” he said.

Jasmine Adams is upset the school system didn’t do more to protect her daughter.

“I just felt that our trust was in them that they would do the right thing,” she told CBS42, “And it feels like to me it wasn’t it wasn’t done.”

McKenzie’s school said they found no evidence of bullying.

McKenzie Adams’ mother and grandmother complained to the State Board of Education that the 9-year-old was being bullied at her elementary school in Linden, Alabama.

She eventually was able to transfer to U.S. Jones elementary school in Demopolis, where the bullying is said to have continued.

Linden City School Superintendent Tim Thurman said that he couldn’t confirm any evidence of bullying because all of the teachers and administrators from that time are no longer at McKenzie’s old school.

Demopolis City Schools attorney Alex Brasswell said the whole situation is sad and senseless.

“Certainly our hearts [go] out to the family and friends of Mckenzie and her fellow students as well as her teachers,” he told CBS42.

“Demopolis school system has provided grief councilors and crisis councilors at the school since this and ministers and youth ministers have been at the campus since the date of this incident. And we certainly want to extend those services to any students and teachers on our campus as they go through this healing process.”

McKenzie Adams’ funeral will be held in the gym at U.S. Jones elementary school in Demopolis on Saturday (Dec. 15) at 11 a.m. just ten days before Christmas.

Instead of seeing the girl who loved playing with dolls and riding her bike open Christmas parents, her family is now planning a funeral. “It’s an emotional roller-coaster,” McKenzie’s aunt Edwinna Harris said.

Harris, who is a television host in Atlanta, said she wants to use her platform to speak out against bullying so that other families wouldn’t have to experience the same tragedy.

“God has blessed me to help others with my platform, and now it’s time to help. There are so many voiceless kids,” she said. “God is opening great doors for justice for my niece.”

Cute!

In what appears to be the plot to our very favourite dream, DB has taken to Instagram to share a super adorable snap as he snuggled up to a fluffy pup.

Cuddling up to his furry mate, David shared the cute snap – adding an ‘I love you’ sticker to the shot.

Yup, way too sweet.

It appears David has decided to snub the allegations surrounding a bit of a tiff with his wife of almost twenty years, Victoria.

According to a bout of unconfirmed speculation, VB is said to left the recent British Fashion Awards feeling slightly miffed following some on-stage jokes about her 43-year-old husband.

It’s said Victoria was upset after comedian Jack Whitehall made a string of gags about her ‘fella, despite her being the one who was up for an award.

It’s claimed that Jack had joked that David had managed to upstage his 44-yerar-old wife at the recent royal wedding – before adding that he’d also outshone the bride herself, Meghan Markle!

‘David is here tonight fresh from winning the royal wedding, congratulations on that. Whole day, all that planning, the Givenchy dress and all anyone could talk about on Twitter was how good you looked in a morning suit,’ Jack joked.

Whilst Jack was just having a bit of a chuckle, an insider claimed to The Sun that the jokes had fallen on deaf ears for Posh Spice.

However, reps for the couple have asserted there to be absolutely no bad blood, with David’s spokesperson sharing: ‘David, Victoria and Brooklyn had a fantastic night together at the Awards and party.’

Well, that settles that then!

Kicking back with a good old bit of pampering, the 25-year-old revealed she was busy with all things skincare.

Sharing a selfie, the LM babe gave unsuspecting followers quite the shock as she unveiled her bubble clay mask.

Pouting for the snap, Pez looks miles away from her usual polished and preened self as she wrapped up in a fluffy white towel.

‘Scariest face mask EVER,’ she captioned the bath time shot.

Following this up, the songstress then added another selfie – this time comparing her new look to the moon emoji.

Yup, we’re definitely seeing double!

However, it was back to business as usual shortly after as Perrie then dusted off her glad rags for a sizzlin’ shot.

Posing in front of a decadent canvas, the LM babe gave followers some major Sporty Spice vibes as she posed in a matching two-piece tracksuit and black stiletto boots.

Piling her trademark blonde tresses on top of her head, Perrie captioned the snap: ‘Sporty fash-hun.’

We’re so glad to see Perrie on top form, after admitting she almost ‘dumped’ Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain following a very out of hand board game…

‘We had date night, it was competitive, it got out of hand,’ Perrie admitted.

‘I swear to God I thought he was going to dump me – and I thought I was going to dump him. If you think I’m competitive, you should meet him,’ she joked.

However, the pair thankfully managed to put aside their differences – and the rest is history!

Strictly Come Dancing 2018 hit by ‘FIX’ claims after Joe Sugg fans ‘discover voting loophole’ before final

Joe Sugg
‘This Morning’ TV show, London, UK – 05 Dec 2018
He’s the YouTube vlogger turned Strictly sensation, but has he got what it takes to win that glitterball trophy? After making it to the semi-finals last weekend, Joe Sugg will be waltzing his way into the studio alongside dance partner Dianne Buswell as he talks life since Strictly, why his grandparents inspired his Strictly adventure and why he wouldn’t say no to a career in the West End.

It might be just hours before the Strictly Come Dancing final, but it looks like Joe Sugg has found himself in the middle of another ‘fix’ scandal.

Strictly

The YouTube star has become a firm favourite to win this Saturday after impressing the judges with his amazing ballroom skills alongside partner Dianne Buswell.

More: Strictly Come Dancing 2018: Anton du Beke hints why THIS celebrity won’t win the show

However, now 27-year-old Joe’s fans have apparently discovered a loophole which allows viewers outside of the UK to vote for him, which is forbidden in the show’s rules.

A four-step instruction shared on Twitter and Instagram reads: ‘How to vote for #Joanne if you’re not in the UK.’

It claims there is one of three ways in which fans can vote alongside calling on a landline or mobile phone.

If international fans DID manage to vote, this could lead Joe to win by a landslide considering he has a worldwide fan base of 8.2 million YouTube subscribers, 5.49 million Twitter followers and 5.7 million followers on Instagram.

However, fellow finalists Stacey Dooley, Faye Tozer and Ashley Roberts can rest assured because BBC’s terms and conditions state that they can disqualify any votes that are found to be ineligible.

The terms and conditions on their website read: ‘The BBC reserves the right to disqualify votes if it has reasonable grounds to suspect that fraudulent voting has occurred or if it considers there has been any deliberate attempt to manipulate the result.

‘The BBC can only guarantee that votes individually entered directly through the telephone numbers promoted on the show and those registered through the site http://www.bbc.co.uk/strictly will count.’

And bosses over at the Beeb have since responded to the loophole rumours, insisting their doing their best to prevent anyone from outside the UK voting.

The statement given to Metro.co.uk reads: ‘We regularly make updates to our technology to help prevent access to voting via the BBC website from outside the UK which breaks our voting terms and conditions.

‘Our voting platforms are robust and we have stringent procedures in place as well as independent verification. Online voting requires a BBC log in and is freely available to users across the UK without a VPN.’

So, it looks like Strictly producers will definitely be putting a stop to any foul play…

Unfortunately, when the online store opened two weeks ago, the merchandise featured a pretty awkward blunder as one line read: ‘Love made me do it (it was’nt my fault)’.

Arnez Yaron Jamison: Quick Facts About Man Responsible for Car Crash That Killed 4 Kids in South Carolina

The man responsible for the car crash in South Carolina that killed four children was identified as 27-year-old Arnez Yaron Jamison.

Arnez Jamison was driving on a country road in Travelers Rest, S.C. (near Greenville,) when he lost control of the vehicle, ran off the road and struck several trees.

Inside the car, along with Jamison, were four young children, who all perished as a result of the crash. Three died instantly, and the fourth later died in the children’s ICU unit of the hospital after being taken off life support.

Jamison was hit with a number of charges from the crash, including child endangerment and felony DUI resulting in death.

Here’s what you need to know:

Arnez Yaron Jamison was driving an uninsured vehicle and was under the fluence of alcohol at the time of the crash.

South Carolina Highway Patrol trooper Joe Hovis told WSPA 7 News that 27-year-old Arnez Yaron Jamison was driving a 2004 Pontiac van north on Mountain Creek Road (Highway 253) around 12:28 a.m. early Friday morning (Dec. 7) when he lost control, ran off the road and crashed into several trees.

There were a total of five people in the van, including Jamison and four children. Three of the four children—4-year-old Arnez Yaron Jamison Jr., 6-year-old Robbiana Evans, and 8-year-old Jamire Halley—all died at the scene of the single-vehicle crash, Hovis said.

The fourth child in the vehicle was severely injured and taken to the hospital, along with Jamison. The fourth child, 2-year-old Ar’mani Jamison, later died in the pediatric intensive care unit at Greenville Memorial Hospital.

Jamison was charged with four counts of felony DUI resulting in death, driving under suspension, driving an uninsured motor vehicle and child endangerment.

Jamison was the biological father of two of the four children, but raised all four as his own.

Arnez Jamison had his first court hearing on Tuesday (Dec. 11). He’s currently being held without bond at the Greenville County Detention Center. The judge denied his bond and told him that it would have to be determined later by a circuit judge due to the serious nature of the charges.

The children’s mother, Jacqueline “Jackie” Brown told the Greenville News that her children meant the world to her and she doesn’t feel complete without them.

“I’m just incomplete now without them,” she said Monday. “They were my everything — my heart, my blood, my breath, my motivation. They helped me get through everything I needed to get through.”

The younger two of the four children—Arnez Jr. and Ar’mani Jamison—were biologically Jamison’s, a relative told the News, but he raised all four of them as his own.

Arnez Jamison has a history of run-ins with the law, including a domestic incident between him and the children’s mother, Jackie Brown.

Criminal records show that Arnez Jamison has a history of run-ins with the law. His record includes a number of traffic-related and criminal offenses over the past several years.

According to the Greenville News:

In June 2015, police responded to Brown and Jamison’s apartment on Brooks Pointe Circle for a domestic disturbance, according to an incident report obtained from the Travelers Rest Police Department. The report states that a 911 caller could hear Jamison yelling, “Don’t make me knock you out.”

An officer arrived to find blood on Jamison’s clothing and could smell a strong odor of alcohol on him.

The report states that Jamison had come home after drinking with friends to pick up more alcohol when Brown told him he had had enough. That’s when Jamison became angry and punched a hole in their wall, according to the report.

Jamison’s emotions were continually up and down, going from anger to sadness, according to the report. At one point during Jamison’s arrest, he tried to kick out a window to a police vehicle and later threatened some of the officers, the report states.

He pleaded guilty in July 2015 to third-degree domestic violence and resisting arrest. He was sentenced to 45 days in jail, according to Greenville County court records.

Another Travelers Rest police report details a hit-and-run in March 2016 when two separate vehicles were struck in separate locations. Jamison was identified as a suspect and arrested after officers found him in his apartment. In that case, he pleaded guilty in August 2016 and was sentenced to 18 months probation, court records show.

In an incident in May 2016, officers responded to a Walmart where Jamison’s vehicle was parked in a fire lane. Officers told Jamison to step out of the vehicle and could detect a strong odor of alcohol on him, according to a report.

Jamison resisted arrest and caused officers to fight with him for several minutes before he was placed in handcuffs, the report says. He was charged with public disorderly conduct and resisting arrest in that case. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 30 days in jail, court records show.

Later in 2016, he was given a trespass notice from the Brooks Pointe apartment complex and on Nov. 11, 2016, officers were contacted by the apartment manager who reported him being there.

Officers found Jamison sleeping in an upstairs bedroom and while escorting him out of the apartment, he tried to run away and caused officers to tackle him to the ground, the report states. Court records show he pleaded guilty to hindering a police officer and violating a trespass notice and ordered to pay a $1087.50 fine.

A close family member said Jamison’s mom died when he was 11 years old and he’s struggled with depression ever since.

Arnez Jamison’s family described him as “man with a good heart,” despite his lengthy criminal history.

“He is the sweetest, most generous boy that really screwed up. He would do anything for anyone,” said Jamison’s cousin Carol McNeil, who said she raised him as if he were her own son. “If anyone knows the first thing about him, it’s that he loved his kids. He loved his kids. All of them.”

McNeils said Jamison’s mother died when he was 11 years and she’s struggled with depression ever since. She told the Greenville News that Jamison told her he “doesn’t want to live anymore” after losing his children. “Without his kids, there’s nothing to live for,” she said he told her.

Jamison, the only person who survived the crash, was injured and taken to Greenville Memorial Hospital before being booked in the Greenville County Jail.

He used a wheelchair during his bond hearing Tuesday (Dec. 11). He rarely spoke, other than saying “Yes sir” to the judge when asked a question. He shook his head while filling out paperwork, a reporter said.

McNeil said this incident shouldn’t define Jamison as a person and he’s not a “monster” as some people have called him.

“I want the community to know that he’s a good kid,” she said. “I understand they’re upset and mad, but he’s not a monster. He loved his kids. If he can sacrifice his own life for them, he would. I want the community to stop bashing him. We all make mistakes.”

McNeil said the guilt Jamison feels from the fatal crash is “killing him.”

“That’s my son. That’s my son. I’m going to fight and do whatever I have to do,” she said.

Cheryl also knows a thing or two about throwing a few choreographed moves on the dancefloor as music videos from her earlier solo singing career prove.

Joining Cheryl in the line-up is Glee and Broadway actor Matthew Morrison, as well as Strictly Come Dancing pro dancer Otlile ‘Oti’ Mabuse.
