In a heartbreaking YouTube video from September, Todd explained how she was ostracized at school and ridiculed for the photo, which she admits she originally sent to the man herself. “Then nobody liked me,” she said through a series of notecards. “I can never get that photo back.” Todd turned to drugs and alcohol, was forced to move and switch schools several times, and even tried to previously commit suicide by drinking bleach. The video has been viewed nearly 4 million times. Her mother Carol told the Vancouver Sun she hopes it can be used as an anti-bullying tool.
