We here at EqD have received sad news today. Michael Morones, an 11 year old boy in North Carolina, recently attempted to take his own life due to bullying received on account of being a brony. Fortunately, the attempt was caught and halted in time to save his life, but he sustained severe brain damage. The family has reached out and is asking if the community from the show he loves can help out with the medical expenses.
His facebook page can be found here, and money can be donated over on Paypal via this address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Everyone here at Equestria Daily offers our deepest condolences to the family of Michael and wishes him a complete and speedy recovery.
Note for those wondering: We have received confirmation. The story and donation link is legitimate.
Update: Release from RED Talent Management (Agent for a few of the voice talent on the show)
