Chester Bennington’s 11-Year Son Says ‘F*ck Depression’ And Is Now Helping Suicidal Fans


Late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington’s 11-year old son Tyler has jointed Twitter to help his Linkin Park ‘family’ deal with mental health issues and suicidal thoughts. His profile description states, “SUICIDE SURVIOR & YOUTH ADVOCATE FOR MENTAL HEALTH.”

Tyler’s Mom Talinda introduced him on Twitter, “Our son is finding healing within our twitter FAMILY-Let’s show my baby @TYLERLEEBENN how much he can help make a change! #fuckdepression.”

Tyler tweeted, “FAMILY-U have helped me in many ways. And now I’m here help as many youths as I can with changing the mental health stigma #fuckdepression.”

“Hey guy’s love you all tweet me what you’re great full for.”

“Hey FAMILY- wow you all help me so much I just want to say thank you all.”

A fan sent late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington’s widow Talinda a GIF of herself wearing a t-shirt based on a phrase that Chester’s 11-year old son Tyler originally mentioned in a note to his father, and later based a drawing around. The fan asked for Tyler’s permission to tattoo it, and he enthusiastically said yes.

In June, late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington’s 11-year old son wrote a note that said: “Dad, enjoy your rehearsal or whatever you’re doing today,” the note relayed. “Love life because it’s a ‘Castle of Glass’,” it finished, referencing Linkin Park’s 2012 track. Tyler later made a drawing based on ‘love life’ after his father died in July.

The note is tragic now with the death of Bennington, who left behind six children. See the note below.
