You have asked what you do if you are being bulling for something you didn’t do and that you are getting death threats.  We are really sorry to hear that you are getting bullied and getting death threats. It is important that you to know it is not acceptable for anyone to bully you, no matter whether you did something or not. You certainly do not deserve to be receiving death threats.  

You need to speak to a trusted adult about this right away, as receiving death threats is something that should be taken very seriously. Getting some help with this is urgent, to make sure you are safe. You can also contact the Gardaí on 999 or 112, if you are ever feeling unsafe. It is their job to make sure that all people especially young people are always safe. Here is an article from the Childline website about receiving harassment/threats online .
