User Douyin Doudou Rongyi, a friend of the deceased, indicated that Luo Xiao Mao was trying to attract the attention of her ex-boyfriend Zhao Ruolin, pick up 8days with reference to Global Times.

Subsequently, several netizens wondered if the death of the ‘influencer’ could have been avoided if Douyin had intervened after Luo’s publication that afternoon. A Weibo user wrote that the transmission was the blogger’s last cry for help and she described as “pure monsters” the people who incited her to take her own life.
