LONDON TELEGRAPH

A talented teenage gymnast committed suicide after becoming concerned she would be branded “racist” after taking a joke photograph and sharing it with friends, an inquest heard.

Phoebe Connop, 16, uploaded an edited picture of herself where her skin tone had been darkened and she was wearing a scarf wrapped around her head to a private Instagram message, which she shared with friends.

Miss Connop, who had been speaking regularly to an Asian male, told the group it was what she would have to look like to get approval from her “boyfriend’s” parents.

The image was shared beyond the private group and Miss Connop feared their would be a backlash, the inquest heard. She died on July 7 after committing suicide at her family home.
