A BIZARRE website allows bullying victims to have their tormentors virtually “killed” and placed in an online “graveyard”.
The bully’s name is sent to a website whose staff write it on a object which is filmed being imaginitively destroyed.
So far, bullies’ names have been written on items including bits of paper, eggs and bread.
The videos are then posted to bullykillers.com for the victims and others to enjoy at their leisure.
The site has been created by students at Lincoln University who insist they are not condoning actual violence and hope that the metaphorical killing can provide a “cathartic release” for bullying victims.
In one of the videos, a bully known as “Oliver” has his name written on a piece of bread before being fed to pigeons.
In another, a bully called “Rob” has his name written in whipped cream on a wooden floot, before a man rubs the cream with his foot, destroying the name.
Whilst one shows the name “Martina” written on a bottle-cap which is subsequently flicked down a drain.
Another shows “Bob” on an egg, which then explodes in a microwave, and one one shows “Ben”, written in baking powder, get sucked up a vacuum cleaner.
In a particularly funny video, “Donald Trump” is written on a piece of paper which is then flushed down the toilet, whilst an unidentified man urinates into the toilet bowl.
Explaining the motivation behind the website, an unnamed founder wrote: “We wanted to do something to help those that experience bullying.
“As bullying can be seen as a taboo subject it can be difficult for those experiencing bullying to seek the help they need.
“We do not condone any actual killing, we hope that upon seeing the videos people can achieve a bit of cathartic release from any painful memories towards bullies they may feel.
“It’s definitely a tongue in cheek approach. We wanted to create a fresh, unique approach to bullying. While the message behind our site, that we need to talk about bullying more, is very serious we have found a slightly less serious way to get people talking about it.”
Social media users found the website hilarious.
One Instagram user known as bohemein_choclates wrote: “So cool! We love seeing things like this pop up in our feed. Would love to see more.”
Commenting on a particular video, another, called KirstyMae95, said: “Finally got what he deserved.”
Simon Heal added: “Like the Trump one.”
