Ashawnty spent almost two weeks at Children's Hospital Colorado on life support before dying Wednesday morning.
Ashawnty's mother Latoshia Harris said that her daughter confronted the other girl, who allegedly bullied her, in the video, which was taken by another student and shows the two girls fighting while other children watch, Fox 31 reported.
Her parents said although video of the fight is hard to watch, they want to share Ashawnty's story to hopefully save lives.
"It should also be noted that the video did not take place during school hours".
A cell phone video of the fight was posted on social media, and her father told KDVR, "She was devastated when she found out it had made it to Musical.ly".
When the video was shared to the popular music app, the child was saddened.
Ashawnty was a fifth-grade student at Sunrise Elementary School.
Ashawnty's parents claim that the school denied their request to meet with a parent of the child involved in the fight.
"We have to stop it, and we have to stop it within our kids", said Davis. They said they want other parents to be aware of this issue and do something to stop it.
Still, a potential meeting could've changed the outcome of the tragedy, and saved Ashanwty's life.
"I didn't get to communicate with the other parent", Harris said.
"And, my daughter just couldn't face another Friday", Davis said.
"My daughter just came in and hung herself".
Her parents say she is a victim of "bullycide", when a person died by suicide after being the subject of bullying. On Thursday, the district offered their sympathies to the family and provided mental health professionals at Sunrise Elementary to help students deal with Ashawnty's death.
"We do not tolerate bullying of any kind in our schools", the district said. The safety and well-being of students is our highest priority, and we strive every day to ensure schools are safe, welcoming and supportive places that support learning.
FOX31 was made aware of the video at the end of October when a viewer emailed it to the station. "Until, I take my last breath, I don't want this on my clock to happen to anybody's kids".
