(WAFF) - A 13-year-old girl committed suicide by jumping off an overpass in Washington, and many are mad at her father for the video he had posted of her several days before, according to jezebel.com and Tacoma's News Tribune.

The original video that is allegedly Izabel Laxamana was removed from YouTube, but one of her friends shared it by videoing the original on his phone, according to jezebel.com. The video is titled "The bad side of social media shaming: Izzy's Story" by YouTube user Lift Up. 

Those who heard the story and watched the video online are lashing out against what they are calling "public shaming" and "social media shaming" from Laxamana's father.

The video shows a girl with short hair and then pans to hair on the ground that appears to have been cut from her head.

“The consequences of getting messed up, man, you lost all that beautiful hair,” you can hear a man say. “Was it worth it?” 

You can watch the full video here.
