Troll tells seven-year-old girl with just months to live due to terminal brain tumour to ‘hurry up and die’ during barrage of sick social media taunts

  • Kiara Buonomo, seven, from Glasgow has brain tumour and has months to live 
  • Her family have been bombarded with sick messages after she was diagnosed 
  • One has told her to ‘hurry up and die’ and another said she is wasting NHS cash
  • Police Scotland said they are investigating the cruel posts 

A troll is bombarding a family with offensive social media messages mocking their seven-year-old daughter who is dying from a brain tumour.

An account documenting Kiara Buonomo’s battle for survival has been targeted by a series of sick posts which began shortly after she was diagnosed last year.

The cruel taunts include one that tells the youngster, from Springburn, Glasgow, to ‘hurry up and die’ and tell the family that they are wasting NHS money.

One featured a picture of Kiara with the caption: ‘Am dying yasss hurry up this time f* sake yous will never have to hear ma mongo horrible voice again.’

Another said: ‘Ugly c*** Kiara will be deed soon.’

Kiara’s mother, Natasha Kinlan, has complained to police and has now spoken out in a bid to help catch the sick individual responsible.

Ms Kinlan, 30, told the Daily Record that the mystery troll’s messages are destroying her family.

She said: ‘It’s sickened us. We have enough to think about without the extra stress of this.’ 

Kiara was diagnosed with brain cancer in January last year.

She has undergone a brain operation in a bid to clear most of the cancer, but doctors have told her there is now nothing they can do.

Her mother said she was diagnosed when she was six years old, when doctors found a mass in her brain. They removed 95 per cent of it, but the cancer has now returned and is at stage four.

She said: ‘A couple of weeks after Kiara was diagnosed in January last year, we began to receive pictures on Snapchat saying ‘hurry up and die’ and they told us we were wasting NHS money.

‘They were calling Kiara ugly when she is clearly beautiful.’ 

 ‘The way they are talking now is vile, about rape and other things. It is horrible.

‘I want these people brought to justice.’ 

Police Scotland said: ‘Police are aware of this and inquiries are ongoing.’
