Man Commits Suicide After Being Bullied For Dating A Transgender Woman

A Philadelphia man committed suicide after he was being bullied for openly dating a transgender woman.

According to AAZios, Maurice Willoughby,20, aka “Reese Him Daddie” went live on his Facebook page and quickly gained over 15,000 views after openly admitting to dating a transgender woman. However, the video received backlash and Willoughby was bullied for dating his girlfriend, Faith. Friends of Willoughby said he also dealt with depression and the cyberbullying became a contributing factor to his declining mental health state.

Before his death, Willoughby posted a status on his Facebook about his girlfriend and said people should never judge his decisions.

“Y’all can say whatever about Faith I really don’t care if she not passable  I don’t care if she wasn’t born a woman she is a woman to me & I love her flaws that’s what makes her faith if you heard her story it’s motivating….. I’m happy you should be happy for me”

“News that one can’t contain: Right now my heart went back numb over getting this news! This was my bestfriend and a confidant. And now that you’re gone isnt what is going to bother me, but the bullying and the depression that took you away also. We both suffer greatly with that and together we stood strong and held on…and now one of us has ascended to A Higher Place In The Sky!!! Man this is messing me up bad! R.I.H. Reese man”
