      College student, 19, shoots herself dead weeks after starring as Casting Couch porn amateur - and being mercilessly harassed by former schoolmates
      • Miss Funke, who wanted to be an anesthesiologist, made the decision to take part in a porn video for website CastingCouch-X in March
      • Days after the video was posted online by the site, she was taunted by former schoolmates at Stillwater High in Minnesota
      • The University of Wisconsin student defended her decision online with the words 'FAMOUS for dayzzzz'
      • On April 17, the teenager bought a shotgun, drove to Big Carnelia Lake and killed herself

      That's messed up. Mere days after it's posted, everyone back home had seen it?
      It's not the best way to make money, but when opportunity comes along, it might be hard to say no. It's sad that she couldn't just ignore the haters, but at that age and in that situation (especially in the Midwest states where towns are generally less populated and everybody knows everybody else) it would seem like a big deal.

      Looks like she got caught... (puts on sunglasses) ... with her pants down.

      Oh geez that was terrible. I almost regret asking you to come here now.

      Obviously the death is sad, but that's not what I want to touch on. I think it's pathetic how much hate people get who do porn. Some porn is exploitative and downright sexist, but porn isn't by default, and I actually think it's a decent way to make money. I mean, you are providing a service, in a billion dollar industry, where a lot of people watch... and yet we have lots of people saying how disgraceful people who do porn are? I wouldn't do it, and I'd have a hard time dating a pornstar because I don't like the idea of my girlfriend having sex with someone else, but I'm not going to judge people who do it.

      It's just porn. It's just sex. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I wish the stigma of the pornstar would go away.

      Right. And there is the obvious hypocrisy of publicly shaming the girl when you're the one who watches so much porn that you stumbled on that one particular video right after it came out and recognized the star. If being in porn is so bad, why should watching it be any different?

      This is awful. Any young person is going to jump at any opportunity to make some money and it seems this is what this teen did. So sad that people could not see past what she did and see her for who she was away from that.

      So you make one tiny mistake, no need to kill yourself over it. :( Real shame..... She had her whole life ahead of her too.......on the more positive side, I bet the porno was pretty damn hot too so she should've just ignored the hate and went on with her life with her head held high.

      I agree @jnugget there will always be someone out there that will hate on someone because they feel it makes them look cool around their friends not fully realising exactly what they are doing to the person they are hating on or understanding the circumstances as to why she did what she did. For this girl she took it to heart and took a way out nobody should ever have to feel they should take.

      I can only imagine how you feel Jay to be honest but I fully understand what you mean. It's a cruel world we live in and it's usually the people who don't have things like this affecting their lives that take attitudes like this, not all but some. If they suffered things like this or like what you suffer they would be the first to say something if people started to bad mouth them.

      thats true but people will never be nice to people with mental health even the government doesnt care.
      but some people treat us like kids because they think we dont understand anything or the treat us like we are the worlds evil that needs to be purged.

      hope one day the stigma ends

      Porn stars are basically prostitutes. They're getting paid to have sex with someone just like a prostitute would, but its getting filmed for and distributed for the world to see, which makes the situation worse. She probably regretted it soon after all was said and done, and she should have expected judgmental people to look down upon her, but shame on those people for not knowing when to stop. Relentlessly bullying someone who made a mistake is uncalled for.

      With that said, I watch porn and I don't judge those people. But then again, they're all strangers to me.

      No one who walks this Earth is perfect so we need to stop harassing people over every single thing they do in life. Basically, those haters were in no position to judge that girl for what she did or didn't do. I'm sure there are things that they've done in their life that they aren't proud of. But that is the world we live in. There will always be haters who will show up from time to time to harass anyone they can about something they've done.

      I might be in the strong minority here, but I really don't feel sorry for her. I am not a mean or a cruel person, and while I think the situation is sad, especially of the stigma related to porn, I don't feel sorry for her.

      Don't get me wrong, I think that it is sad that this happened, because it really is, but maybe, just maybe, she should've mentally prepared herself more of the potential consequences, to handle any of the blowback before going on to spread her legs and "smiling" for the camera.

      I am pretty sure that someone in her life tried to talk her out of it, and she decided anyway that she didnt care what anyone had to say, and that like it or not, she was going to do it no matter what.

      Well, choices have consequences and this sadly was one of them. We as humans have the ability to learn and learn from the mistakes of others, and we can either choose to do better, or ignore it and end up in the same situation or worse.

      That being said, there are literally tons of examples of porn stars who couldn't handle what they done (or were forced into it) and turned to drugs, alcohol and dangerous behavior as a means of coping, only to end up dead either as a result of their actions or suicide.

      And on a more positive note, there are also tons of porn stars who have turned the crap they've gotten from people into chocolate and rode that sh*t all the way to the bank. Especially since those dogging her are hypocrites because they are consumers of this stuff just as they are with other porn stars as well. The hand that they use to wag their finger of judgment, has some questionable material on it for sure.

      I am sure that someone in her life might've mentioned this to her to get her to think twice about this, but she was determined to do this anyway.

      So if that is the case, why should I feel sorry for her when she didnt care enough to think about things beforehand, especially if its likely she was asked to do so?

      If she was forced into it, or mislead then that is one thing, and there are legal actions she could've taken.

      If she did it to support herself and her family, then she could have lifted her head and held on to that for strength, since she was doing it for the greater good.

      Amber Rose posed nude when she was 16 or so, to support her family, and she became a model. Anytime someone, usually a Kardashian sister, brings that up, she throws it right back in their face that yes, she did what she had to do to support her family who was poor at the time, but she didn't have to leak a sextape or get urinated on to do it.

      The Kardashians can't respond to that since they were already rich because their late father was an famous attourney, and Kim was already a successful celebrity makeup artist, at the time she leaked her sex tape.

      And truthfully, Kim is another example, because instead of killing herself, she milked her fame for everything it was worth and now she and her family are set for life.

      But the fact that this girl killed herself tells me that she was determined to do what she wanted to do and didn't care and when she couldn't take the criticism, she decided to make a final gesture for sympathy.

      Much like Amanda Todd did, and other teens who felt that they were grown, and repeatedly put themselves in a certain situation, (even after she was relocated and had the chance to start over, she still did the same thing again..) but then decided that they wanted to be a kid again when they didn't like the consequences.

      The saddest thing here is that other equally stupid teens will ignore her situation, and end up on the same one themselves, only to do the same exact thing. Especially since today's teens know more than yesterday's 20-somethings, so there's really no excuse.

      Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

      I look at situations like these similar to those who knowingly, and repeatedly put themselves in harm's way.

      Case in point, drunk driving and texting while driving. There are many idiots who still do this despite the mountain-high cases and evidence proving that this is dangerous, and yet despite all of this, people still do so anyway even with full knowledge of said proof.

      So why should I feel sorry for some idiot who had every opportunity to learn from their predecessors actions, but refused to do so and decided to go driving drunk and ended up going 200+ mph on a Pennsylvania highway, only to end up with his guts splattered all over the highway as a result of his car hitting something that was much smarter than he was?

      Why should I feel sorry for the genius who just had to text "k I luv u 2 bae XOXO" to their jumpoff as they were crossing a railroad track and didnt see the flashing lights and lowering gates as a result and ended up earning a Darwin Award while police dogs retrieve what's left of their bodies?

      The bottomline is that I don't. I'm sorry if that makes me a cruel person, but really I don't care and truth be told, this could be seen as an example of Survival of the Fittest. Those who were fit to survive will do so, and those who weren't will not, and will ironically, take themselves out in the process.

      My sympathy is reserved for the surviving families and I hope that they can find the strength to move on in this difficult time and I wish them the best in doing so, but my sympathy stops there.

      Sure she did a stupid thing - but at 19? she was still little more than a child .

      I get what you are saying, but 16 is considered the age of consent in many developed countries in the world, and even in a few states here. Hell, you can even get married in a few states here as well, you just need to have your parents permission (see Courtney Stodden, who was 16 when she married that 51 year old guy from The Green Mile..) or be an emancipated minor.

      For that matter, Mike Brown was 18 when he was killed last summer, and most news outlets described him as a man, which technically he was, and with the way they described him, you'd think that he wasn't a college-bound kid, but a grown man paying taxes and a mortgage, complete with 2 divorces, worry lines and a receding hairline, and yet, this woman was 19 and was technically a kid? How does that even work, especially since, girls mature much earlier than boys do, and since its been reported that girls are maturing at even younger ages now, than they did 20 years ago, that would mean that she was, by all accounts, psychologically and physically a woman.

      There's girls younger than she was fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, I am not talking about child soldiers on the other side, but actual soldiers who enlisted.

      And there are some her age starting families as well. Others have started businesses.

      And due to the income inequality in this country, there are teens much younger than that taking jobs to help their parents support the family.

      I knew a 14 year old, who got a fake id to get his working papers so that he could get a job at Walmart and help support his parents, one of which was disabled, and had his benefits cut, and his mother was working 2 jobs that didn't pay her much while trying to support their family. He developed early and was very tall, so the person that hired him didn't think much of a 16 year old working a job after school.

      There is a 15 year old girl who is out there now risking her life in the name of women's rights named Malala Yousafzai, and she has already had an attempt on her life.

      My point is, that 19, is by no means a kid, they may not be a fully matured adult, of say 40 and above, but they are not a kid either, especially in this day and age.

      At 19, she should've known better, especially since people today have more access to information than they did in previous years.

      Especially since she was initially proud of what she did, and was bragging about it, until she decided that she wanted to be a victim.

      I wouldn't say that her doing porn was dumb, especially since college debt is seriously out of control in this country, and since the politicians in charge, pretty much gave the predatory banks and lenders the green light to screw the students, they've been screwing already to do it all over again, it is highly likely that she was doing it to support her education.

      Many girls usually turn to stripping for that since it pays better, and it is considered to be more dignified than porn, but it was still her choice. If she was adult enough to go a few rounds on the casting couch, then she should've been adult enough to live with the consequences, especially given the likely, but respectable, reasons behind her actions.

      I personally think there was a hell of a lot going on then just the simple posing for porn. Probably most of the story was left out. She probably wasn't very stable mentally to begin with, and this situation was the last straw that broke the camel's back. I'm almost certain the bullying was going on way before this if you was to look into the entire story. That's usually how media is, omitting tons of details.
      That said, it is still a horrible tragedy when anyone feels they are better off dead. I've been there many times and am surprised that I have actually survived the suicidal thoughts to still be here today.
