Ellen DeGeneres has taken to her show to express her devastation over the outcome of the teen suicide struggling with his sexuality after his “pal” secretly filmed him getting with another man.

Speaking on her show DeGeneres described the outcome tragic and told her audience that something must be done to prevent further suicides.

The openly gay chatshow host said: I am devastated over the death of 18-year-old Tyler Clementi, he was outed as being gay on the Internet and he killed himself.

One life lost in this senseless way is tragic. This needs to be a wake-up call to everyone that teenage bullying and teasing is an epidemic in this country and the death rate is climbing. We have an obligation to stop this."

RnB singer Ciara has also spoken about the incident: "You gotta know that your life is in your hands,” she said. “You determine your destiny. You're in total control. You determine where things can go - where they can start, where they can stop. It starts with you, and it really does get better."

Clementi jumped of the George Washington Bridge after his roommate, Dharun Ravi, and classmate Molly Wei streamed live footage of him with another man. They have both been charged with violating New Jersey's privacy laws and could face hate crime charges.
