“I’m ok,” McKee told Radar about the threat to kill herself. “People can only tell me to kill myself so many times before I break.”
McKee posted a note about her day out with her three children and wrote about all the mishaps they had during the day, but one earned her the wrath of internet trolls.
“Pet land: if that poor ferret died because broncs and Gannon we’re pulling at it from each end fighting over it. Sorry, however, they really are not worth $200 though,” McKee wrote on her private Facebook page, but it was reposted on Twitter.
McKee said she cried for “six hours”over the abuse she received on line and finally tweeted: “I’m sorry. I can’t handle anymore. Today was my breaking point. I’ve done my best. And with everyone telling me I should just kill myself, maybe your right.”
An upset McKee told Radar the abusive messages devastated her.
“It is blowing my mind that people are doing that. It was like not even one second, my son tried to grab it, I ran across and took it away and gently put it back into the basket. And now I’m getting told to kill myself, I’m getting told I shouldn’t be a mom.”
“You cannot cyber bully people to the extent that I have been cyber bullied today,” McKee told Radar.
“I don’t think that I’m a bad parent,” McKee said. “I don’t think my kids are bad. I’ve never even knew such nasty things could be said about someone.”
She defended her child’s actions in the pet store. “He’s a 2-year-old, he wanted to hold the ferret, I grabbed the ferret and gently put it back in the basket.”
McKee described the hateful things commenters said online. “I’m opening thousands of messages that I should kill myself,” she told Radar.
She explained how hurt she was by the message. “I did not want to live anymore. After everything that happened this year. I don’t think I’ve cried that hard in so long.”
McKee said she was suffering from depression lately.
“I slipped into a really deep behind-the-doors depression,” she told Radar about her mental health struggle.
“I had to learn self-love and pull out of that and it was hard,” McKee said.
“I am really hoping this all passes,” McKee told Radar about the cyber bullying.
“I’ve dealt with depression for years,” McKee told Radar. I need to stay off social media. I just keep trying to ignore it and I see more.”
