Trans* Woman Committed Suicide After Witch Hunt Led By Daily Mail Reporter
Teacher Lucy Meadows was found dead by suicide after reporter Richard Littlejohn led a witch hunt against her via the Daily Mail.
Richard Littlejohn brought Lucy’s trans* status to the attention of the national media and mocked her with headlines such as "He’s not only in the wrong body… he’s in the wrong job" and commented that trans* people are a threat to children.
"The vile article led to a witch hunt targeting Meadows. Newspapers offered to pay parents for a picture of her, and she complained of having to leave home by the back door and arrive early to school to avoid the packs of journalists.”
Sign this petition to get the Daily Mail to fire Richard Littlejohn, force him to issue and apology and force an editorial review so this kind of thing never happens again.
The fact that this kind of article can still be written and published and the fact that it caused someone to take their own life is disgusting. Nothing can be done to help Lucy now, but hopefully we can help ensure that this never happens again.
