We're not really discussing rights here. The fact that someone has a right to insult someone else doesn't negate the possibility of bullying. Breaking a law isn't a prerequisite for bullying.
And doesn't she have the right to make a video in which she calls out her tormentors?
Personally, I like the way she went about it. She didn't get the law involved. She simply made a video to turn public pressure against the page. Kudos to her.
I mean if it were a picture of her in a dress at a formal event and someone comments that she should not wear that dress because it looks wrong on her or it is incorrect for that event, is that cyber-bullying?
I think I have to side with the ones saying that they can post pictures and make comments, even the rude ones like this. I still think they are jerks for doing it but they have the right to be crass, and facebook agrees with them.
Also there are laws governing some actions on the internet, i.e. death threats, or defamation etc.
It is a grey area because if this were not an adult and it were a 13 year old girl it would be different the way it is handled.
Depends on the how the comment was offered, but probably not. However, there's a rather wide difference between offering commentary on one's choice of attire and the comments seen in this video.
