#56 He was only 15, but was killed by words 网络暴力杀死了15岁少年

Podcast Transcript

大家好,欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese。今天我想和大家聊一下最近发生在中国的悲剧,一个让人难过的事。一个只有十五岁的男孩自杀了,因为他没有办法承受网络暴力。我们甚至可以说,他是被网络暴力杀死的。

这个男孩叫刘学州。他太年轻了,但是他的人生太让人悲伤了。刘学州出生的时候,他的父亲母亲卖了他。四岁的时候,他的养父养母因为意外去世。在学校的时候,因为没有父亲母亲,他承受着校园暴力。中学的时候,他被一个男老师性骚扰。他有抑郁症,但是他没有放弃,一直在努力生活。2021年12月6日,他在微博,中国的一个社交媒体上发视频,希望能寻找父母。12月15日,警察帮他找到了父母。这个时候,他才发现他小时候被亲生父母卖了。他的父母又有了孩子,不愿意和他一起住,也不愿意为他租房子。他的母亲还拉黑了他的微信。拉黑,意思是在社交媒体上把人放进黑名单,不再联系。

后来,他的父母接受报纸的采访,说刘学州威胁他们,要他们买房。刘学州说这不是真的,他没有这么做。但是,很多网民在微博里骂他,说他很险恶,让他去死。这就是网络暴力。这些人,也被叫“键盘侠”。“侠”原来是一个很好的词,这里为了讽刺。“键盘侠”,意思是在不敢在生活里批评别人,只敢在网络上骂人的人。因为这些“键盘侠”的网络暴力,因为父母的无情,刘学州自杀了。2022年1月24日,他在微博上发了遗书,在海边吞了很多的药。被送去医院后,他依然死去了。他的养舅舅把他带回了养父母的老家。他自杀的那个海边,依然有很多人送来鲜花。

我很想问一问那些“键盘侠”们,他们在网络暴力的时候,究竟在想什么?究竟为什么要对一个15岁的男孩说这么糟糕的话?言语,是可以杀人的。一个只有15岁的男孩就这样被杀死了。他的人生甚至还没有正式开始。

今天说了一个悲伤的故事,我也希望以后再也没有这样悲伤的故事。

Hello everyone. Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese. Today I would like to talk about a tragedy that recently happened in China, a very sad story. A boy who was only 15 killed himself because he couldn’t bear cyberbullying anymore. We can even say that he was killed by cyberbullying.

The boy was called Liu Xuezhou. He was so young but his life was so miserable. When Liu Xuezhou was born, his parents sold him. When he was 4, his foster parents passed away due to an incident. When he was in school, he also suffered from bullying in because he had no parents. When he was in secondary school he was sexually harassed by a male teacher. He had depression but he never gave up and had been working hard for his living, on 6th December 2021, he posted a video on Weibo, a social media in China, hoping to find his parents. On 15th December, the police found his parents for him. He didn’t realise he was sold by his own parents when he was little until that day. His parents got another child and wouldn’t like to live with him, nor would they like to rent accommodation for him. His mother blocked him on WeChat. 拉黑, means to put someone on the blacklist and never get in touch with them.

Later on, his parents accepted the interview with a newspaper and claimed that Liu Xuezhou was blackmailing them to buy a house for him. Liu Xuezhou claimed that it wasn’t true he didn’t do it. However, lots of Internet users cursed at him, saying that he was evil and should go die. That was cyberbullying. Those people are called ‘Keyboard Men’. 侠 was originally a good word but here people used to be ironic. ‘Keyboard Men’ are those who have no gut to criticise others in real life but curse at other people in the cyber world. Because of the cyberbullying from those ‘keyboard men’, and because of the ruthlessness of his parents, Liu Xuezhou committed suicide. On 24th January 2022, he posted a suicide note on Weibo, then swallowed lots of pills by the seaside. After being sent to the hospital, he still died. His foster uncle took his body back to the hometown of his foster parents. On the seaside he committed suicide, there are still many people come and bring him some flowers.

I really want to ask those ‘keyboard men’ what they are thinking about when they were cyberbullying people. Why on earth did they have to say such horrible words to a 15 years old boy? Words can kill. A 15 years old boy was killed by that. His life had not even properly started.

Today we talked about a sad story, and I hope this kind of sad story will never happen in the future.
