jesus christ this is grim
Didn't read the article, just a quick look, but basically it seems to me that it was about a teenager who was deeply insecure about his looks and self loathing - like many teenagers - and one of the ways this was played out is not being able to stand any photos of himself, and - like some teenagers - had serious thoughts of suicide as they were so full of self loathing.
Cue papers using the word SELFIE lots in a headline along with SUICIDE to make it sound like it's some new-fangled crazy driving kids to death / was never like that in my day.
In conclusion: I haven't read either article.
