Amanda Todd – information about her videos

99.9% of people viewing this post will, I think, be looking for links to Amanda’s videos.

When this post first appeared, it was a reaction against all the people online who were saying that the videos never existed. Now, even the most ardent Todd fan will have to admit that it wasn’t all about one photo.

It is, of course, illegal to provide links. Even some of the photos here are borderline illegal. However, I have left enough information in to show that there are three known videos of Amanda online. Really, they don’t amount to much. Compared to other activities online, they are pretty innocent.

These are pictures from what I believe to be Amanda’s first online show. I think it’s important to note that she wasn’t alone. She is with her friend.

Amanda is in yellow.



Amanda found fame on Daily Capper videos, here along with the others:

This was a cartoon that was published. It sums up Amanda quite well.

I have published this picture to show that Amanda was quite obsessed with putting pics online.


Though the story says that Amanda was supposedly friendless, this was on her 15th birthday.


Since I originally made this post, a lot more news has been shown – specifically in the documentary ‘The Sextortion of Amanda Todd’, in which it is acknowledged that Amanda displayed herself in chatrooms and that, when the cops arrived in December 2010, Amanda’s opinion was this ‘it’s no big deal’.

Amanda’s pictures still exist in certain places online. As an example of the type of place they showed up: (BlogTV changed its name to YouNow).

I still feel bad about showing pictures of Amanda. So why show them? Even now, so many people deny that they exist. People have accused me of some sort of slut-shaming or victim-blaming, but I still think that it’s important to investigate the Todd story in its entirety. Evidence of her videos appears on these sites.

Amanda was active on YouTube, but she had to delete her entire account (isabella100555) as she mentions here:

Amanda’s life was possibly more complex than we know:

Who is Renan Tarras? Did he really rape Amanda?

I have Amanda Todd’s chatlogs, which are interesting. The one when she got banned is here:

and the strange one is shown here:

I describe Amanda’s later video here:

What actually happened around December 2010?

Amanda and her friend in the picture were active online. Basically, they were best buddies. Amanda and her friend had a fight, the knowledge of BlogTV came out in the open, all of Amanda’s friends then found out what she was up to.

This friend wrote on about Amanda:  ”DONT EVEN SAY THAT NAME. shes nasty greassy and she has no life so she stays on the computer all day finding fake guys to date in toronto !’

It was all like the movie Mean Girls.

Amanda also used to appear with her friend Shylah Watson. Shylah Watson was the ‘other’ girl in the Mandaa&Shyy videos who used to flash alongside Amanda and on her own. I have left her name because she identifies herself in the 5th Estate documentary.

Note that the Mandaa&Shyy video was three weeks after the cops arrived to warn Amanda, so it looks like she didn’t learn from that warning.

That’s all folks. Anyone who is genuinely interested in the Amanda Todd story will have to read the rest of the blog. If you were here just to look at her noodz, then for God’s sake, get a grip!

  1. Oh dear! A bit emotional today. The c word, indeed. I did think about taking it out, but sometimes I have to say what I feel. If they ever invent a way in which a fist can come through a screen and punch certain people on the nose, then some of the readers of this blog would get a black eye! Probably time for a cup of tea and a lie down. In fact, it’s always time for a cup of tea and a lie down.

    • You really should just take the link down….the viewing figures have already gone up & it isn’t fair on Amanda. Alright you have provided links to report but you already said most people just want to see the video. It’s not right & does your blog no credit. The people you speak off who basically have their hands in the sand……they just ain’t gona change their minds & opinions now no matter what you say, or show them.

      • As far as I know, the IWF and CEOP only concentrate on the UK – probably due to laws. But you can actually report the video on the actual site. If people are too lazy to find out how to do it, then tough. But I might supply more information later.

      • Thanks Colin, but I have to think about it. If I take the link down, people will still refuse to believe that Amanda was online flashing for the fun of it. You know as well as I do that people thrive on the myth of ‘one mistake’. But it is also important for people to see what is going on in reality. If we keep hiding away from reality, nothing will ever get done. The video has been there for over two years, yet no-one has reported it. It is illegal – as are, probably, many of the other pictures. So why haven’t the police responded? If I know it is there, surely they must do too?
        If there is to be some sort of search for the truth, then unpleasant things have to be shown. It is unfortunate that the video attracts the wrong type of person, but maybe someone will see it and realise that something needs to be done. Can I assume that you reported it?
        As you know, there are people who simply deny that all this goes on. Perhaps this will prove to them that things aren’t just imaginary.
        You are also aware that I get perplexed about what to do. Is it morally justifiable to publish this link? I think it is, simply because I believe that the truth is paramount. All the online vendettas against people, all the lies, all the harassment – all, basically, caused by a girl who made up a story, and a family who refused to accept the truth. Hundreds of hours of police time wasted, dreadful reporting blaming everyone and anyone who seemed to fit the bill for persecution.
        If the video does suddenly become more popular, it might prompt some reaction. As I asked in the blog – how come Mrs Todd hasn’t had the video taken down? How come she never mentions it? Why does she seek so much to NOT tell the full story?
        I kept well away from actually showing the video, though I hinted heavily. And you know that there are worse pictures out there, but I haven’t shown them.
        If I don’t keep pushing, those people out there who want to make money out of the story will remain unfettered. There is no doubt that this story is being exploited by various people for income, but it suits them to tell lies about an innocent young girl led astray by imaginary older men.
        It looks as if I might lose you as a commenter, which is a shame. But this fight for the truth will continue. Don’t get sentimental. Amanda has gone. She can’t be hurt. Her true legacy would be one that would warn kids off repeating the same mistakes – not one that espouses vigilante lynch mobs and mentally deranged retards like Greg Sticker. And somehow I don’t think she would have approved of the likes of Nicky Johnson and the rest. Why aren’t people so concerned about all the other girls on the site?
        There might be more traffic to the blog – maybe this will be helpful. But for now, this link remains.

      • Ok. Hopefully you will take it down soon. I can’t stomach the pervs getting what they want from it though.

        I haven’t reported it, I tried through the links but to no avail. I’m a bit reluctant to go back on site but I will give it a go. Your right about the other girls though, how can I report all that? Why has this site remained? You’re right to question that but then again I havent gone anywhere near it previously despite reading about it here? To be honest it scares the hell out of me!

        I’m not being sentimental, just ‘conflicted.’ That’s the best word to describe how I’ve felt since I realised that the original story wasn’t truthful. I feel bad for what the girl went through even though she was the architect of her own downfall, but I’m also deeply concerned about the fact young impressionable girls are seeing her as an inspiration. (There is one girl in particular that seems to idolise Amanda & writes continually of suicide thoughts in an open to letter to Amanda on one of her sites…..I’m very very concerned about this girl but feel my ‘credibility’ is so low that no-one will listen to me. I just hope others have noticed…..the girl needs more than a few nice comments….in my opinion) This is where the ‘supporters’ get angry & attack me. You’re right, its ridiculous that they spent time doing that to me, & others but haven’t dealt with this side of the story.

        I wasn’t threatening to leave this blog. That would never work on you anyway, but hopefully you will take it down soon.

      • I have tried speaking privately to girl I mentioned a wee while back & believe I made a little difference but I’m terrified I might say wrong thing. I’m out my depth.

  2. Colin – I appreciate your problems, I really do. The big thing is not to let it get you down. Contrary to what people might think, I hate all this. It drives me crazy. Personally, I think suicide notes on YouTube and Facebook should be banned. Many of them are just kids looking for attention, and hardly any of them are genuine. We live in strange times when kids can go online with a suicide note for ‘likes’. But the Amanda Todd thing made it all look so easy.
    Do you remember Nicole Barker and all her friends? Getting bored, then going online threatening suicide? Giovanna Plowman has an R.I.P. page where people go to convey their sadness; she tweets on a daily basis.
    But remember – the Internet just heightens all this nonsense. People would have you think that things are much worse, but when you look at it, it’s not really that bad. Instances like Amanda’s are, in reality, few and far between. What doesn’t make the headlines are the sadder, quieter suicides on a daily basis – those are far more common, and far more worrying – and perhaps even worse off are the kids who live with their problems on a daily basis.
    A lot of people HAVE realised that the Amanda Todd story was a pack of lies. That’s why it really has died out. It still ticks over, but it has mainly faded into insignificance.
    As far as other kids online, I would ignore it. You risk becoming part of the problem – kids will become dependent on the feedback they get online. If they think it is easing off, they will up the stakes. It’s not healthy. Once they realise that online support is meaningless, they will get worse. Your best advice to them is to talk to real friends and family. Then point then in the direction of helplines. Getting involved as a non-professional is dangerous. In a way, I’m glad you feel out of your depth. That is a good sign that you are being reasonable. More of a worry are the people who feel qualified to be only psychotherapists. Most of them are mental!
    And btw Colin – I would be sad if you left the blog!

    • Yeah I’m not gona continue with ‘The sympathetic ear’ approach because it just masks the real problem. Whether its attention seeking (it certainly is to a point) or real deep underlying issues it ain’t for me to fix. It easy to think a kind word will make all the difference though. That probably says more about me! Haha!

      Nicole Barker? How am I ever going to forget the night/morning of her fake suicide threat? I actually BLAME her for my insomnia! Joking! Talk about pivotal points…….I wouldn’t be on this blog commenting right now if it weren’t for that girl! God you appeared from nowhere & suddenly you were everywhere! Next thing I’m on your page arguing for Amanda & slowly but surely thinking “wait a minute….this crazy dude with fake name & weird profile photo is actually talking some sense” 🙂

      Anyway I’m still chickening out of going back on that site. In fact I’m gona be a huge hypocrite & leave it to others!!! I’m just gona read Enid Blyton (got tons of her books from childhood) then settle down to reruns of Little House on the Prairie. Night sorted 🙂

  3. In reply to your plea about reporting sites with illegal content, I’ve tried before to no avail, even when I could provide WHOIS information after getting a proxy registrant to drop them for TOS violation. I’m of the very strong impression that law enforcement doesn’t even bother with this anymore due to the thousands upon thousands of pictures and videos online unless a victim or their family complains directly or can be identified. Several of the subjects in the cameracaptures site are identifiable but I have a gut feeling it would be pointless to report. Another site would simply take its place. Right now I’m on the heels of one particular individual and already have certain major sites lined up to be next, but I have no real hope they’ll go down. I guess it’s just for the sense of satisfaction that I’ll get knowing I did what I could.

    • I’ve found this too. However, like you say, I think that CEOP and IWF are too inundated with all the problems, and need to concentrate on the worst stuff – this is just the tip of the iceberg.

  4. how is it that site is still allowed to exist, people obviously know about it, its sick and should be taken down

    • It exists because the world lets it exist; because idiotic girls go unsupervised online; because parents can’t care enough to watch their kids any more; because porn merchants can do what they like – basically, because no-one cares.

  5. They are all daughters. Mine is safe in her bed right now, thank you god. I just reported this site several times whether it does any good or not. It makes me sick and sad. I will report again tomorrow. You are emotional but I like it. Keep on swimming.

    • Michelle – thanks for you comment, and thank you for complaining. This was indeed one of my more emotional posts – sorry about the words, but they kind of express my feelings more succinctly! A few of the girls have been identified – Peyton Ramsey is here, as well. There’s a lot of bad stuff online, but this exploitation of underage girls (without any kind of permission, without their knowledge) is truly dreadful. Good to hear your daughter is safe. Care for her, look after her, treasure her – like we should for all children. Take care, and thanks again.

  6. I don’t like blame passing, BUT i’m sorry, where are all of the PARENTS of these girls???? Why do they have no clue what their children are doing online??? Computers are like guns, If you don’t know how the eff they work than you should not own one for the safety of your family and others. Like Duh! Geez it makes me so mad. Your language in your post is 100% understandable for this complete outrage on so many levels.

    • Parenting is a BIG problem. Many of these girls will be doing this in their bedrooms – totally unsupervised, and allowed to do what they want. And many of them will not know that they are being exploited. The Internet has become a ‘friend’ to many of these kids, and it’s a crying shame. Many parents are completely unaware – dangerously ignorant. These days, kids should be given early warnings about what goes on in the webcam world – like you teach your kids not to talk to strangers, and not to run across a road without looking – it should be second nature.
      As you probably know from this blog, it looks like Carol Todd simply allowed her daughter to do whatever she wanted. She never said ‘no’, wanting to be seen as the cool mom. But the perils of all this were brushed under the carpet – it’s like people don’t really want to know.
      Thanks for your supportive comments. If I can bring this to the attention of just one or two parents, then I feel like I’ve done something.

    • Michelle, it seems what we’re seeing is something I personally call generational entropy or societal entropy. Rightwingers will probably call it creeping liberalism or some other convenient political catchphrase. Basically, each generation in a society is a little more permissive then their own. They experienced childhood, grew up, had kids of their own, and now don’t want to be as harsh on their own kids as they perceive their own parents were. So they let their own kids do a little more than they used to. Then this next generation of kids grows up, and the cycle repeats. Technological advances have accelerated the pace of the cycles, IMO.

      Today, we’re at the point where many parents think their kids are going to disobey them anyway, so why bother setting limits or making rules? They treat their kids as mini-adults, telling them such-and-such can be bad for them and why, but then in the next breath telling them they EXPECT their kids to disobey and do stupid stuff because, after all, kids will be kids. What’s a child to think? And then there are those parents who think that letting kids go wild in a semi-controlled environment will reduce the dangers while giving their kids an outlet, so they throw keggers for their teens, or in one notorious case, try to have a birthday party in a strip club (mom was arrested). Two boys in my daughter’s high school were killed after the truck they were riding in plowed head-on into a tree – they were returning from a parent-hosted beer party.

      There was this one girl I befriended on Youtube back when I was doing the whiteknight bit there. She was quite creative and made some pretty cool music videos. When I announced my leaving the heroing scene, she was quite upset and wanted me to maintain contact with her, even knowing I was an adult. I relented and added her on Facebook. During the occasional conversations we had over the next few months, I learned about what it was like growing up in her life, and I learned a little about her friends.

      I found out that among her peer group of 12 to 13 year-olds, “making out” with many different guys per year was the norm. She worried if I thought that five was too many – some of her friends snogged ten or more guys in a school year, and one was just beginning to experiment sexually. She thought herself “responsible” in being more restrained than her friends, and reassured me more then once she would never do anything inappropriate online since she knew the true nature of some people out there.

      Then she dropped a bombshell on me. She had been begun using alcohol and marijuana on a few occasions since she was 12. The clincher? Her mother KNEW about it. She went on to tell me that her mother “disapproved” but the only “restriction” placed on her was that she was required to “be honest” with her mother when questioned about substance use. She disapproved, but she wasn’t going to try to stop her! She even stated that she might try Ecstacy in the future just to see what it was like!

      There was nothing further to be done. I had hoped to be a resource to her, somebody to turn to if she needed advice or information on things, but if her own mother was going to let her do illegal stuff without lifting a finger … what good would I serve? I’m just a “random guy” on the Internet, I’m not a parent. I’m not an authority figure. I’m just a disembodied set of words. I unfriended her, consigning her to the “care” of her “mother”, a mother who spoiled her rotten with just about every electronic toy you can imagine, expensive stuff, and stuff which she promptly broke. Hey, I’D like a digital camera! I’D like a smartphone! I’D like a digital camcorder or a decent laptop! I’m not going to get them, though, as I don’t have a mommy who spoils me and lets me do whatever I want. At least I don’t go around trying to pick up every female I meet, though. I don’t do illegal substances, I have an important and useful job, and I have my self-respect.

  7. These girls are lacking, Love, Attention, values and skills. Their parents are too busy to give a shit what they are doing. I am 29 yrs old, not that old, I have a 2 yr old daughter. She will know she is my priority and even though I am an extremely loving mother I will lay down the law. I will give her boundaries and rules and I know she will hate me at times but I am prepared to do my job as a parent for the rest of her life. It comes down to just common sense I think too. There is no reason for a kid to have a computer in their room period. These girls should be INVOLVED in activities and passions. Their parents should be nurturing their childhoods to help find those. Kids these days just lack LIFE SKILLS period. All I can do is set the example and while not perfect I will never allow this nonsense to happen. I shared to my facebook and asked everyone to complain. I have a lot of friendz lol.

  8. Hi, I was very moved by the video posted by late Amanda Todd and I really liked your article. I made a effort to launch a complain about removing the explicit video from the site but could not do it. Please tell me how to complete the process because I really want to save other girls who might meet the same fate that Amanda had. Let’s just make a effort to save all.that we can….

  9. I came across this on my search for updated information about Amanda Tood’s death and her bullies.I did click the link but fortunately I didn’t see anything related to Amanda Todd on that page but what I did see was alot of sexually explicit videos that seems to be of very young girls,most likely underage.That site should be shut down,it is very sickening and disgusting.As the mother of an almost 12 year old daughter,this disturbs me on many levels.

  10. I have reported that website as well.I clicked the link you provided and clicked the back button quicker than I ever have.All those video thumbnails of those young girls.Heartbreaking!Where are these girls mothers at?

  11. I have reported the link although I couldn’t access it since the ISP here blocks such content (thank GOD because seeing anything would have pissed me off even more!).
    I’ve also bookmarked this post and will be reading more into it. It’s great to know that other people do care. God bless. 🙂


  13. I was wondering if that person bianca nitoi, did she was bothered by the photos of her flashing ? did she cared. did you have some comeback. was she insulted. is this story continue to follow her ?
    Was she angry about her pics shown on the website

    • Not sure. Did Bianca know that she would ever be identified? I don’t know. And you would be surprised – she might even like the ‘fame’ of being known. But I guess they will keep very quiet. And Shylah might also be surprised. But if they spoke up, it would prove that Amanda was never stalked and it was all done for fun. So Carol Todd will be begging them to keep their mouths shut.

  14. I would first like to say, if you can’t spell ‘you’ or other simple words please don’t comment. It sounds like the comments are coming from 12 year old kids.

    Now onto my point. My instincts have always told me that there was something off about the amanda todd story. I couldn’t quite figure it out. After an argument earlier with a young friend of mine I decided to research more about the story as I felt the details given on Wikipedia and other such sites were…I don’t know…they didn’t feel right. I was hesitant to hunt for any videos as I was rather concerned about what I would find. I praise the writer of this article for doing my work for me and, although the videos no longer exist, I get the general gist of what was going on.

    Tomorrow I shall follow the links you have posted and report the videos that still remain. It concerns me that these videos are still active yet nothing is done about them. It concerns me even more that people are misled in such a way as the Amanda Todd story. I will recommend this article and I hope it gets high amounts of recognition so that the truth can finally be heard.

  15. Does it really matter what Amanda, her mother or anyone else? There is a poor girl who regardless if she was mean or wahtever was made so miserable by people that she died. I’m sure they or hopefully they didn’t mean or think aobut it going so far but these people need to be left alone to grieve and hopefully get stricter things in line for cyberbullying. I work with the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention and this broke my heart. An actual persons life was lost who cares what mistakes she did we are all human and i’m sure I don’t know the whoel story but it doesn’t change that she took her life becasue of it all. BE NICE.

    • Thanks for dropping by to comment. What people need to be left alone to grieve? Certainly not Carol Todd, who has taken every opportunity to get her fizzog in the papers. And if you work for suicide prevention, why support this mish-mash of a story that avoids marijuana use, drink, underage sex, and God knows what else. Look at the header of my blog. And she didn’t take her life because of it all – grow up, for Pete’s sake!
