Who is running your tumblr? As a suicide survivor I think ANY joke about suicide is in VERY POOR TASTE. Get your act together and realize that suicide is a serious issue. Would you post rape jokes too, without fear of retribution from the VERY LARGE community of women who post about their experiences here? No, you wouldn't, because you probably have Staff who've had trauma in their lives like that. Use better judgement and realize those reading your blog expect BETTER!

A reader takes issue with our recent post, “Banana suicide pact.” 

We’re sorry we offended you with the post, it wasn’t our intent and we certainly agree that suicide is no laughing matter. (On that note, if you or someone you know, are in a suicide crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255.)

Thanks for keeping us honest!
