Huge support for bullying app ban

A QUEENSLAND mother's petition to ban an app with potential for cyberbullying has amassed more than 101,000 signatures in five days.

The petition by Katrina, who does not disclose her last name, gained huge traction following the tragic death of Northern Territory teen Dolly Everett who took her own life and calls for the app Sarahah to be banned.

 

"I do not want my daughter or any other to become the next Dolly," the Rockhampton mother wrote in the petition's description.
