NY – Crises Text Line, the suicide support app entirely funded by volunteers and donations, accepted Michelle Carter to redeem herself as a suicide counselor yesterday following her recent sentencing. The nonprofit pairs suicidal users with counselors to offer support.
Carter’s lawyer made a statement about the new endeavor “Well, Michelle has learned her lesson. She is ready to start giving back to the community.”
Just hours after her on-boarding, Michelle was fired for promoting strategies that were “Not in line with effective suicide prevention” said Crises Text Line CEO.
Some conversations included the following:
Anonymous user: Today is the day, I’m going to off myself
Carter: Put your money where your mouth is.
In another conversation, Carter urged the user to go through with the suicide, calling him a pussy.
Anonymous user: I don’t know if I can go through with this.
Carter: Don’t be a pussy, its not becoming of you.
Needless to say Carter was asked to resign from her position. She is exploring new ways to give back to the community.
