Facebook slammed over bullying video move

A MAN who shared a horrifying video of Gold Coast schoolgirls callously bullying another teen to commit suicide has slammed Facebook after the social media giant deleted it.

The man, who says he is a friend of the bullied girl's family, posted the vile video yesterday and it quickly went viral.

It showed Gold Coast schoolgirls, believed to be from Helensvale High, threatening to kill a classmate and taunting her to commit suicide.

The target of the abuse was not present.

"Everyone f**ing hates you and everyone wants to kill you," one girl yells at the camera.

"You're going to probably kill yourself before I kill you, but you know what? I want to kill you."

A second girl then threatens to stomp on the target of their abuse.

The post attracted hundreds of comments encouraging the family to go to police while others called for the girls involved to be expelled.

Overnight, the man who posted the video said it had been deemed by Facebook as "not acceptable" content and was removed.

"Is bullying (acceptable) … child suicide from this?," he posted.

"ZERO tolerance (to bullying) is!"
