Chris Cornell’s Children Hit Back At Disgusting Cyber Bullies

Chris Cornell’s daughter Toni has posted the following on her photography Instagram:

“It really hurts when I am scrolling through my Instagram and come across a picture or account that say the most horrible things about my mom and family. I try my best not to read it, but I come across them so often that it’s almost impossible. It’s sick when people tag me in posts that say those horrible things too.

This is not a rare case. So many other children and people are cyber bullied too, and a lot of them aren’t as strong as me and my family are. This leads to depression and suicide as well, and these cyber bullies need to understand that it’s someone else’s life they are messing with. If you are being bullied or cyber bullied, please stay strong and know that you are not alone, and that so many people, including me, stand with you. Cyber bullying is NOT freedom of speech, it’s hurtful, and it needs to end RIGHT NOW. #STOPCYBERBULLYING”

Her sister Lily commented, “I am so so proud of you. People writing hurtful things about ANYBODY in our family have no respect or sympathy. I hope people read the powerful message that you wrote and think twice about the actions they take, behind a screen or otherwise.”

Everyone in Chris Cornell’s family from his immediate family to siblings have suffered terrible attacks from trolls since Cornell died by suicide in May 2017, with the conspiracy theories and attacks even extending to the children at times.

    I am glad that Toni mentioned depression in her comments.

    Though, I am sorry that she is having to make such comments.

    • Cristiann

      My thoughts exactly. Honestly, it amazes me just how strong these kids are. They seem to have a better understanding of depression than I did when I was their age.

      Also, it’s so nice to see that Toni and Lily always have each other’s backs. I hope all three of Chris’ children stay close as they get older.

  • makingconnections

    Ironic that Olga sat down to write something at the exact moment I did.

    I want to tell Toni that I have been reading articles and commenting on this site since her father’s sad passing. I have only heard people wishing the very best for her and her brother and sister. I don’t know about the other sites and Instagram but over and over again I’ve heard people wish the very best for you. Please know that.

    Adults are sometimes off the wall so to speak and I’m sorry if the criticisms I had towards the words of your Mom and Grandmother hurt you. I hope someday you’ll understand that this was a sad and disruptive time and that no one wished you to feel bullied. You are your own person and I hope you continue to be the creative person you are today forever.

    By the way, I think all of this is nearly over. May your father Rest In Peace now.

    • Kay B

      I agree, I’m actually so numb by it I can’t really talk about it anymore.

      • makingconnections

        Be well Kay.
        It seems like the sadness goes on but there’s nothing left to say….and I hope there’s a peaceful silence around Chris Cornell.
        Please say Hi sometimes.

        • Kay B

          I hate to say it but Chris I’m sure is in a peaceful spot compared to the shit that is going on in the US. I am actually speechless which is rare but probably great for some on here.

      • Kay B

        Ok so I lied.

        • makingconnections

          Haha…we’re all free to speak when we feel like it and we are also free to change our minds.

          Today I feel the need to say that the people that have hurt Chris Cornell’s children on the Internet are those close to them who refuse to stop their stupid banter.

          • Kay B

            Well you know me…..I know some have called me ignorant or mean or why can’t I let up for the kids sake. Let’s remember V and her mother hen did plenty of bullying to Peter when he was just trying to tell the truth about his brother. Vicky made a mockery of Chris’ grave site with Linda having parties and then showing the public a letter from the grave keepers to not take video and photos there. Which V was doing all along. Sure I can be ignorant but I’m not the one lying to my kids about what happened that night. I’m not making my husband (their father) out to be a druggie as a cause of death. V and mother hen made some very odd and even obscene tweets. Of course people will react. And it is those stories that get clicks on this site. And they know it. Ignorance is all over this place.

          • makingconnections

            It almost makes you wonder of they don’t get off on this drama somehow? They must know they are risking their children’s mental health and well being by saying things deliberately to get people like us upset. I’ll tell you, if my mother acted up as Vicki’s mother has, she’d be silenced very quickly by her whole family. Children come first!

            Really, the two of them have put on quite the performance and don’t seem to want it to be over.

          • Kay B

            They don’t want it to be over and neither does AN.

    • Cristiann

      Very well said. It’s one thing to give opinions on the articles we read (like here on AP), but it’s a whole other thing to lash out at someone on their own personal blog.

      I, myself, am guilty of criticizing VK, her mother (and even Susan S.) on this website at times, but I would never go and take my criticisms directly to them, much less to these poor kids. That would just be cruel imo. At the end of the day — no matter what we may think of the adults involved here — these kids do love their moms/family and people need to just let them be. Loosing a loved one (especially in the way that they have) is already hard enough as it is.

  • Bruno Sílvio Martins

    Yeah yeah, everyone is like “Poor kids”. but they still talk shit about their mother…
    “Oh, these kids are so strong”, but still no one thinks twice about calling their mother the worst things possible…
    To the point the kids have to post something like this… I can’t imagine how hard something like that must’ve been.
    So with all do respect, fuck all you hypocrites. (not targeting anyone specifically, just generelizing to all those who can’t seem to get enough of throwing some hate out there).

    • Lori B

      The hate and sick messages I have read to chris Cornell’s family would have made him drop out of the spotlight altogether, had he been alive. These haters think they know this family and do nothing but cause more pain to the traumatized wife and children. Sick world we live in where anyone feels empowered to post just to inflict pain on anyone without regret.

      • Kay B

        Quite the opposite. The man was suffering from severe depression. His wife was ignoring this. How do we know? She made him out to be a relapsed drug addict when his tox report clearly showed he wasn’t. She keeps stating he was in a “benzo delirium”. She would rather he go out as a druggie than admit he wasn’t happy. He was touring when he should not have been. But someone has to feed the monkey. I’m sure he would have been relieved if someone would have stood up for him.

    • Diana

      It’s true. I was reading the comments and the same people expressing their support are the people that are doing the bullying. Unless of course Chris‘s mom, brother and ex are not family…😐

      • Kay B

        Vicky and her mother bullied Chris’ brother off social media. He had to take a hiatus. And they did it because he was telling the truth about his bother and the severe depression he had. And that did not sit well with them.

        • Diana

          What a mess

      • makingconnections

        I’m one who has expressed support for Chris Cornell’s children. I’m also one who criticized his wife and mother-in-law. I don’t consider I was or am being a bully and resent the label. If people continue to post provocative words that are not just, they are going to receive negative, sometimes very strongly negative comments back. Many, many times I suggested to them, especial the Grandmother, that for the love of her grandchildren she should retreat from social media and just try to quit lashing out. She’s still not retreating and on we go; it’s very, very sad.

    • Kay B

      It’s “all due respect…….”
      All do respect is the ignorant person’s way of spelling “with all due respect”.
      The mother is hiding the facts on the phone call she made to Chris that night. She is hiding it from the kids. She is making Chris out to be a drug addict which is not true. She would rather his death be focused on the drugs and his apparent relapse than tell the truth of that night. She completely ignored his depression. That is what most of us have a problem with.

      • Bruno Sílvio Martins

        Sure, English is not my native language, but by all means have no remorse in calling someone ignorant for that.
        Glad to see there’s a lot understanding here in this amazing platform of united people… For music… Chris would’ve have loved this…
        I’m out. No more commenting on this site.

        • Kay B

          Fuck all you hypocrites….hateful indeed.

          • Bruno Sílvio Martins

            Telling a bunch of trolls to fuck off and stop hurting the kids is exactly the same hate that the trolls demonstrate by hurting the kids… right…

          • Kay B

            Are you new here? Have you been following what V and her mother have been saying about Chris’ death since it happened? Vicky is the one hurting the kids. I’ll explain again. She told the kids and the world that Chris had relapsed and was in a drug delirium and had no idea what he was doing that night. She is denying his depression. Depression runs in families. She is hurting the kids by having them believe he was this addict. His kids could have depression in the future. Will she ignore that too?

          • Bruno Sílvio Martins

            How the hell do you know what she tells the kids in private? How can you be this sure? I don’t get it. Like I said I dislike them both, but I don’t get this hatred towards them. Are you honestly saying Chris killed himself because of what she told him that night? How can you think that? I don’t understand.

          • Kay B

            When he tweets #NoMoreBullshit right before a concert and was arguing with Vicky before the concert then yes I think the phone call had plenty to do with it. She told the body guard there was an emergency going on in his room and he needed to get in there now…..breaking down the door if need be. But the BG wouldn’t tell the front desk what that emergency was. Vicky knew. Of course she knew or she wouldn’t have said so. Then she flies the BG out of the country the next day? Yea that phone call was the breaking point. Not to mention she has threatened to take the kids away in the past because of his drinking. Sounds like anytime he sounded like he relapsed she threatened to do so.

          • Bruno Sílvio Martins

            To answer what I’m sure is a rhetorical question, I’ve been a follower of this site since the early days of Grunge Report. But still, this is the first time in all these years that I’m actually involved in a public forum discussion. I gess I love Chris’s work so much that I can’t help commenting.

          • Kay B

            Brave one you are.

        • Kay B

          The ignorant comment was from the urban dictionary. It was a joke. Good day.

      • Gabi Sermoneta

        Couldn’t you just stop the hate for the sake of it ? Do you realize you are reacting to the post of a 12 years old girl with the language and the story that belong to world of an adult? Can you imagine if she is reading accidentally your post? Do you have a life to care about instead of venting your misery onto other people, namely a 12 years old girl? If someone reads your post after reading Toni words.. beyond your perfect English the real ignorant here is you.

If someone reads your post after reading Toni words..beyond your perfect English the real ignorant here is you.

    • Olga Stewart

      Well, I have both admitted my mistake about this and I have apologized.

      But I don’t think it’s really all that nice to be rude towards people whose actions and words you don’t agree with.

      • Bruno Sílvio Martins

        I don’t recall calling you names. And those people have no problems whatsoever in calling me ignorant and obviously worse, hurting those kids and pretend they knew Cornell’s private life.
        I don’t like Vicky, I like even less her mother, but I never once said anything or commented about it in social media. I don’t hold myself so high in moral ground that I can jugde other people’s lives.
        I’m telling trolls and hypocrites to fuck off. That’s hardly the same as making Toni and C. Junior scroll their social media and see the horrible things these people write about their mother from behind a computer or a telephone. 100% sure no one would say anything to their face in person. That’s cowardice and hypocrisy. Welcome to the age of social networking.

        • Olga Stewart

          Guess we will have to agree to disagree.

          Again.

        • Kay B

          I would say it to V in person.

          • makingconnections

            No doubt at all: she would.

  • Olga Stewart

    Yes, I am no fan of Vicky and her mother.

    But those children shouldn’t have to read such disgusting comments on their personal SM accounts.

    And from this point on, I will keep my mouth shut about both Vicky and her mother, as I’m probably contributing to being disgusting towards them (on this site).

    Also, I’m very sorry about the remarks I made about the two above mentioned women.

  • Tara McGavan

    So sorry that your going through what I can’t imagine…..truly it’s unimaginable,but most of your fathers fans would go to the mat to protect you,and feel helpless because of the lack of investigation, the obvious inconsistencys, and the fact that your mother and grandmother keep up the daily drama on this site and others… And then there’s the cashing in on everything Chris Cornell…it’s not appropriate in any way shape or form. Stay strong!

    • Kay B

      Agree Tara. I would never pin a daughter/son against the mother. But I can tell you when my dad passed away last year unexpectedly my mother went out of her mind and was very unreasonable when it came to his hospice care. She became a monster before and after his death. I couldn’t have communication with her for months.

      • Olga Stewart

        Grief can really rip some people’s hearts apart.

        I am very sorry to hear both about what happened to your Mom (after your dad’s passing) and that you couldn’t be in contact with her for a while.

        If it’s all right to ask, how is your Mom doing now?

        And you?

        • Kay B

          We are fine thank you. She used to be a hospice nurse so unbeknownst to her, she was treating him more like a patient than a husband on his death bed. Telling him to not pull on his catheter, don’t do this and that. I finally told her stop telling him what to do you aren’t a nurse anymore. It was just a mess. I told her to get into therapy but she is very religious and relies on prayer and God. That is another ball of wax as you probably know.

          • Olga Stewart

            I’m glad that you are both doing all right.

            Also, you’re welcome.

            And religion?

            Yes, I haven’t some good experiences with that in regards to some of the people that I have interacted with.

  • Truth

    If you want the truth about what is really going on head over to Crazy Days and Nights. Enty will be revealing more and more truths about this insane, threat making Karayannis family. They have Russian Bots attacking fans who won’t kiss their dirty haggard asses.They are living off of Chris’ death. Vicky is pissed off because Chris was getting a divorce and knew what she was really like. Her last name is not Cornell.

    Don’t believe me? The widow will be getting a reality show in exchange for her getting Chris hooked back on drugs by swapping out his regular meds with stronger more deadly ones. Look at the doctor/director. Connect the dots, they all conspired to have Chris die, his fake family that is. Why? He knew many people that are human trafficking, pedophiles and international prostitution ring. The proof will present itself very soon. #nomorebullshit

  • Renée Lynn

    OMG, this article is still up all the while TK is bullying on SM as we speak. Brett, why??? Why will you not do an article that covers who the true bully is here??
