UK: Teen commits suicide, feared Muslim community’s reaction to headscarf pic

In the UK, “Asian” is a euphemism for Muslim. Why would a white British lass fear the “Asian” community – it’s a community of peace, is it not?

A teenager committed suicide after worrying a photo of her shared online could be construed as racist, an inquest heard.

Phoebe Connop, 16, had been speaking with an Asian guy online, who she called her boyfriend though the two had never met.

An inquest heard she shared an edited picture of herself where her skin tone had been darkened as she wore a scarf wrapped around her head in a private Instagram chat with pals.

The schoolgirl said to friends that is what she would have to look like to get approval from her boyfriend’s parents.

A coroner was told the image was spread wider by one of her friends, prompting Phoebe into worrying about a backlash.

Black Country Coroners Court heard Phoebe had been working with her father Laurence, 53, to get some money for her summer holidays on July 7 this year.

He had taken her home early due to her feeling unwell but tragically found his daughter hanging when he returned after work.

Her dad told the inquest said: ‘She was a lovely girl who would never want to cause offence to anyone.

‘She had shown me no indication in the weeks leading up to her death that there was anything wrong, let alone anything that would lead her to do this.’

Giving evidence, Detective Sergeant Katherine Tomkins, from West Midlands Police, said: ‘From speaking to her friends in the weeks following her death, we discovered that the image had circulated further than she wanted it to.

‘There had been some negative reaction and she confided in her friend, who did take the image down at her request, that she was scared of what the reaction might be from the Asian community in her area.’

The inquest heard Phoebe, who lived in Halesowen, West Mids., was a talented gymnast who had ambitions of becoming a midwife.

Recording a conclusion of suicide, Black Country Coroner Zafar Siddique gave his condolences to Phoebe’s family.


Somewhat ironic, an Asian coroner.

  1. This is just sad beyond words. That a young woman feels so vulnerable to the cruelties of Islam in her own country is a travesty. Why can she not rely on the protections of her own countrymen? Under the sickening consequences of feminism, political correctness, and multiculturalism, her countrymen have been effectively neutered.

  2. If I were an Oriental or “Asian”, meaning someone of the “Yellow” race, I would be highly offended when people use my race type as a euphemism for MUZZLUMZ! That is certainly not fair nor honest, by any stretch of the imagination. Most Middle Eastern muslims would probably fall into the category of either Caucasian or Black. This PC crap has got to end. That said, this girl’s death is unbelievably tragic, but someone should be indicted for criminal intimidation tactics! There’s more to this story than meets the eye!!!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
