Mom 'cyber-shames' daughter for online bullying

Right or Wrong?

On Sunday, a Reddit user posted a photo of a girl holding a sign up, reading that she was bullying others on social media.

The Redditor, AngryCommGuy , titled the picture "Mom catches daughter cyber-bullying." The user said that he found posted on a "suburban" mother's public Facebook page, advertising for a yard sale.

The photo is of a girl holding an iPod and a sign, reading: "My name is Hailey. I am a kind, caring, smart girl, but I make poor choices with social media. As a punishment, I am selling my IPod and will be donating the money to the charity Beat Bullying, in hopes of changing my behavior as well as bringing awareness to Bullying. Because bullying is wrong."

Reddit users commented on the picture, calling the mother a cyber-bully.

"Well, congratulations on spreading the cyber-bullying," read one post.

Another said, "You have publicly humiliated the young teenage girl further by posting her face."

Another user wrote in comically asking, "Link to buy iPod?"

What do you think of the mother's choice of punishment?
