It has come to our attention that there is a horrific video currently trending on TikTok. It shows a man live-streaming his suicide. Whilst TikTok have stated that they are doing their best to remove the video, it has been shared across all social media platforms thousands of times, including under fake captions. Some captions on TikTok are as trivial as “look at the pasta I cooked tonight” before the video then plays. Therefore it is easy for people to be duped into seeing this video without even searching for it.

We cannot state enough that this video is extremely distressing and we urge our students to access social media with extreme care whilst this video is in such high circulation
