No-one has said the internet was to blame and I doubt very much that the internet made him do it, THIS is what made me feel sick to the stomach.
The fact is that people were quite happy to goad him into it, edge him on, actually enjoy the spectacle AND then post up clips from the link.
"Some of us chatroom users, talking to Kevin over text chat, microphones and video tried to convince him to step down, but others egged him on telling him to get on with it.
"We just couldn't believe he was doing it - it was surreal.
"One chatter said: 'F***ing do it, get on with it, get it round your neck. For F***'s sake he can't even do this properly'."
"I use palktalk on a regular basis and I did not know this man but it is sad for anyone to feel the need to do this. The thing that disgusts me the most is the fact that some person in that room felt the need to taking pictures of the poor guy hanging there and distributing round the palktalk rooms and no doubt the internet. Even I had this sent to me and had no knowledge it had even happened. My thoughts the room should be closed and the people who had @ on need banning, the cams could have been turned off and there was no need for all to watch.
