Social Media Trend Asks for Justice for Conrad Roy
Facebook and Twitter were both seeing the trending hashtag #JusticeForConrad across the social media platforms on Friday, as people across the world were posting it in honor of the late Conrad Roy and to show their disgust at some of the text messages that have been released between Roy and Michelle Carter.
For those unfamiliar, Roy was the Mattapoisett man who took his own life in July of 2014. Carter, a Plainville teen and a close friend of Roy, had been his confidant in the days leading up to his suicide. She now faces involuntary manslaughter charges in connection with his death.
#JusticeForConrad hashtag have also expressed outrage at Carter's actions, many including links or images of the text conversations between the two.
