EMMITSBURG, Md. (AP) — An Emmitsburg woman is using Facebook to expose cyberbullying by a Pennsylvania man who used the social media website to ridicule her 5-year-old daughter.
Sherry Myers said Thursday that she started the “Justice for Jayden” page after an East Berlin, Pa., firefighter posted pictures of her daughter that he shot in the waiting room of a doctor’s office in nearby Gettysburg, Pa., on Saturday.READ MORE: Temple University Student Samuel Sean Collington Killed In Off-Campus Shooting In North Philadelphia
Firefighter Dave Fritz also wrote messages ridiculing the girl’s shoes and questioning her gender.
Fritz took down the pictures and apologized to Myers after she contacted him later that day. He says his actions were in bad taste.READ MORE: 16-Year-Old, Kanye Davis, Shot 8 Times In Deadly North Philadelphia Shooting, Police Say
