It appears justice has been served, as much as it possibly can be, in the unfortunate Amber Cole scandal that broke earlier this week. The teen boys who are allegedly responsible for posting the video of her engaging in a sexual act have been arrested.
Amber tweeted on Tuesday, “I will be pressing charges on the 3 boys who were there,” regarding the video showing her Performing \’Brain Surgery\’ on a boy who is reportedly her ex-boyfriend. The clip quickly spread throughout YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, with additional rumors of Amber committing suicide—something she said she would never put her family through.
Still addressing the drama that sparked a great deal of discussion on cyberbullying, the 14-year-old who now has more than 36,000 followers, said later that day:
“I thank everyone for the support. I’ll try my best to ignore the negative people.”
From her Twitter feed, it appears she’s changed schools as a result of the incident. Hopefully the arrests will give her some peace of mind.
