Aubreigh Wyatt's story has resonated with millions of people.

Though Heather made it clear that she wanted to spread a message about mental health, and that it was never about going after her daughter's bullies, the chaotic aftermath (in which one of the girl was even doxxed) led to the judge's order regarding Heather's removed posts.

As of now, there will reportedly be a hearing on July 18 to determine whether the order will stay in place.
