Molly Wei, the Rutgers Student Who Caused Gay Teen Suicide, Feels “Attacked”

10/12/2010- by Natasia Langfelder

Rutgers student, Molly Wei, is infamous. She and another student, Dharun Ravi, allegedly used a webcam to broadcast Ravi’s roommate, Tyler Clementi, having a romantic encounter with another man. If you are reading this, you probably know this story already. Clementi had no idea his encounter was being livestreamed on the internet, when he realized what had happened, the 19 year old commited suicide.

This is no disputing that Molly Wei is a disgusting human being. However, a “friend” is speaking to People magazine about Wei…and he wants us to feel sorry for her. “She feels that everyone is attacking her,” the unnamed “friend” tells People. “She is trying to stay optimistic,” he says. “She’s really upset about this, she definitely feels bad, and wishes it didn’t go the way it did.”

People also reports that there has been no sign of Wei or Ravi or their families for over a week. According to People source, Wei’s friend, that is because “Wei is now living the life of a fugitive.” “She is going to different places,” he says, “because the media is always at her house.”

The poor thing! Just think, deceiving, mentally torturing someone and then driving that person to kill himself has consequences! Who knew? Wei has also received angry messages on Facebook from people who are disgusted by her actions. Unfortunately, social retribution is probably the only real consequence Wei will face. Her and Ravi are charged with with two counts of invasion of privacy and at most will only face up to five years in prison. A life is over and Wei is complaining about her flash in the pan infamy and her flash in the pan punishment.

There is outrage over Tyler Clementi’s suicide, but not nearly enough. This isn’t the first article People has published about Wei and Ravi. In this article, they refer to Wei as “quiet,” “sweet,” and “smart.” Nice words for a murderer. Three days before this article was published, they wrote one called, “Rutgers Suspects Aren’t Bad – Just Made a Bad Mistake.” There is a thin line between publishing the fact that Wei and Ravi have supporters and actually supporting their actions. I think the line might have been crossed. If Ravi and Wei had done this to a straight female, chances are there would be double the outpour of outrage; People would probably openly condemn Ravi and Wei and slut-shame Wei by painting her as a “party girl” instead of as “quiet, sweet and smart.” But we will never know for sure. What we do know for sure is that Wei and Ravi won’t get the jail time they deserve, even if they are given the maximum five years in prison.

    Although it would be great if everyone were liberal and supporting of gays it is NOT the situation and i don’t think it ever will be. They will always be different and everyone is just using this story to make it sound like we can just blame other people and write scathing things about them because they “caused” the down fall of another as an outlet for all the actions they were too cowardly to act upon before this happened. Well the truth is Clementi SHOULD have stood up for himself rather than let others get to him so easily because there is bullying and put downs all through out life and killing yourself does not let you escape from that fact. I support wei but not ravi who is the one who actually put the video online according to the published story. She really is just a young person who made a mistake and all you people out there writing things like go burn in hell and crap like that are just immature. If you really needed an incident like this to get proactive about supporting gays than i guess you weren’t so liberal after all and now you are going to drive this young girl to suicide too. You jerks. There is no reason to lose another human life over something as little as a sexual encounter.

    I feel bad for Wei and Ravi. They’re still young and they made dumb decisions. I bet there wouldn’t be so much hype over this if Tyler hadn’t committed suicide and he were straight. Other people get bullied everyday; I don’t hear the country crying about it. Besides, it was Tyler’s decision to take his life. The whole truth of the incident is still unclear too.

    Also, Wei or Ravi didn’t do anything to me so I have nothing against them. People attacking them on facebook etc…are not different than the so call “bullying” they did.

    Her initial comment when the boy died, was “Oh Whatever, lets go to starbucks.” Put her in jail, for a long time, and she will begin to understand what the boy was feeling. A spoiled rich kid, who is only self concerned.

    Dave.. I’m not sure if you got my reply but i don’t think so.. i’m just gonna put it here.

    I’d agree with you if it weren’t for her selfish lamentations about how this is all affecting her. No, forget that two people just lost their son. Forget that someone FUCKING DIED.. no.. this show is all about molly and how unfair molly’s life is.

    Does that make her guilty and a criminal? Not necessarily. But does that make her detestable and stupid? Absolutely. You can’t blame people for hating her like they do. She sucks ass.

    Dave, i would agree with you if she hadn’t been so badshit stupid as to go on about how negatively this is affecting her.

    Can you believe the audacity of this idiot? “It’s hard on me too…” Just when you think she can’t make herself look any worse, she comes out with this nonsense. Fine molly. If you’re not a piece of shit, then you’re a moron who has been very poorly socialized.

    Spoiled. ugly bitch is starting to see that only her parents put up with her bullshit. and that to the rest of us, she’s no one special.

    Hear that molly? But for the fact that you tormented someone to suicide, you’re a nobody who deserves absolutely no special treatment just because “it’s been hard on you too”.

    Ain’t no mommy and daddy to help you now.

    Not to get all picky about ethics and due process and stuff, but it might be good to wait for at least a little evidence to come out showing Wei was involved, aware, or even present when Ravi allegedly committed this crime before labeling her a murderer.

      Dude, i’d agree with you if it hadn’t been for her lamentations of how difficult this has all been for HER. Forget the parents who just lost their kid. Forget the kid who died. No, this show is all about molly, didn’t’cha know? Everything is all about molly.

      Regardless of how involved she was.. she’s turned this tragedy around to make herself look like The Victim. That makes her, at best, cheap, dumb and gauche. Does that make her guilty? Not necessarily. But you can’t blame anyone for hating her. She sucks.

    There is so much I could say, but it’s already been said. 
    I have no sympathy for her or the other one. If this tortures them for the rest of their days, then so be it!
    Unfortunately, she is still only concerned with how it has affected her. 
    There are no words for someone like this!
