The Enemy - The Enemy Dedicate Festival Set To Tragic Teenager
British rockers The Enemy dedicated their Saturday night (10Aug13) set at a U.K. music festival to a local teenager who allegedly committed suicide after suffering months of online bullying.
The band performed at the Strawberry Fields Festival in Leicestershire, England and frontman Tom Clarke used the gig to honour Hannah Smith, 14, who hanged herself earlier this month (Aug13).
Clarke dedicated the set to the teen and urged festival goers to be more vigilant about online bullying.
In a series of posts on his Twitter.com page, the singer wrote, "I'd... like to dedicate (the) gig to the memory of Hannah Smith, the Leicestershire teenager who was bullied online. Hannah was subject to such relentless bullying online that she tragically took her own life. I'd like to ask all at (Strawberry Fields Festival) as well as... all of our fans to take a minute to remember Hannah, & to step in if you ever witness online bullying for yourself & put a stop to it... It's never acceptable. It's cowardly, and it's cruel, and it has to stop. Thanks to you all. RIP Hannah."
